Drops in temperature and a loss of humidity during the winter months can wreak havoc on your skin. Dryness, flaking, and texture changes can leave you unhappy with the appearance of your face, and winter skin can even make you look older than you are.
There is a solution for reviving dry, winter skin that requires no downtime or invasive procedures. Dr. Susan Seman offers in-office treatments like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) delivered with a microneedling technique — a procedure known as the vampire facial.
You may have heard about the popular vampire facial in the news and on the social media pages of celebrities but my not understand its benefits. This innovative treatment option is both effective and accessible, perfect for improving the overall look, feel, and health of your skin.
How the vampire facial works
Also called a blood facial, the vampire facial involves microneedling, a procedure in which Dr. Seman uses a hand-held device that contains multiple tiny needles to create small puncture wounds to your skin. By rolling the device over the surface of your skin, the tiny needles cause microscopic openings that can allow platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to seep below your skin’s surface.
PRP is created from your own blood in a spinning centrifuge that separates the platelet-rich cells from other materials. The concentrated growth factors can help rejuvenate skin by encouraging the development of new, healthier skin cells. When it’s ready, Dr. Seman applies the platelet-rich plasma to your facial skin.
At the same time, the microneedling procedure triggers your body’s natural healing process in response to the tiny punctures. This natural response boosts the generation of new collagen that further supports the health of your skin.
Enjoy long-lasting results
Following your vampire facial treatment, your skin may initially appear swollen and red. However, new collagen is already forming. Within a week or two, you can start seeing changes in your skin that make it:
- Look tighter
- Feel smoother
- Appear younger
This treatment reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and you can even see improvements in the tone and texture of your skin. As new collagen continues to develop over two to three months after treatment, your skin’s condition continues to improve. Not only can your skin look better than ever this winter, the results can last for a year or longer.
In addition to the effectiveness of the treatment, the vampire facial is a safe procedure for all skin types. Because your own blood is used for the PRP treatment, you don’t have to worry about side effects triggered by allergies or harmful chemicals.
