My PRP Vampire Facial Review with Photos
I love taking care of my skin in more technologically advanced ways, whether it’s skin laser or more invasive skin treatments. Might as well take full advantage of the technology we have access to in Elon Musk’s world. I mean there’s an entire booming industry that develops all the million dollar gizmos and gadgets for us beauty obsessed folks. I’ve been to the big aesthetics expos and the innovations happening are very VERY exciting. While not new, one such innovation is the PRP facial aka Platelet Rich Plasma Facial aka Vampire Facial aka the Kim Kardashian Facial. It’s a healthier alternative to hyaluronic acid fillers because instead of injecting a foreign substance into your face, you’re putting your own platelets taken from your blood back in. A professional PRP facial at a medical spa or aesthetics center can set you back around $500 for a single session. You’ll get the most dramatic results with multiple sessions, ideally three. Read on for my PRP facial review along with photos from every step of the process.
I went to Regeneva Aesthetics Center in Switzerland, which I know sounds fancy because it’s Switzerland, but this was a very cozy, down-to-earth space at the edge of the city. I also got JUST the PRP facial and didn’t get it done with Microneedling which are commonly done together. I’ve had Microneedling facials done separately though, which cost about $200 so much more affordable though less technologically advanced than PRP.
PRP Facial Benefits
The PRP facial is ideal for people who have:
- Sun damage
Overall it’s good for anyone interested in an anti-aging treatment. A vampire facial can help:
- Stimulate collagen production and elastin
- Plump skin
- Firm up sagging skin
- Reduce acne scars
- Reduce hyperpigmentation
I attempted to blur out anything that might be a trigger in these PRP facial photos.
I first had a quick consultation with the doctor who would be performing the treatment. She then applied numbing cream, and I had to wait about 30 minutes for it to fully kick in.
Warning! PRP does involve drawing blood and needles! Just one needle but may not be for those terrified of needles.
The drawn blood is then “spun” in a device called a centrifuge, which separates the plasma rich platelets from the blood.
The needle with all those good platelets is then injected back into your skin at dozens of points across your face. It felt like tiny pricks but I didn’t experience any actual pain thanks to the strong numbing cream. The actual injecting platelets back in part is very short (maybe 10-15 minutes), and it was the numbing cream and centrifuge portion that took up majority of the time.
Because I didn’t get the Microneedling done, I didn’t have a bloody face like you often see. Instead, I just had little tiny red dots where the pricks were made. Zero swelling and zero downtime — I was able to get back to my day as usual.
Over the next few days my skin was very dry and there was some tiny bruising with certain pricks but this all went away fairly quickly. They say the full results of the facial are visible after four weeks, but I already noticed a different around week 2 and 3. My skin tone was vibrant and bright and just looked very healthy. It might have even been a little plumper.
