The vampire facial is a beauty trend made popular by Kim Kardashian. This article will tell you everything you need to know before you get a vampire facial UK.
What is a Vampire Facial?
A vampire facial, also known as a Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is a regenerative therapy which uses the patient’s own blood to improve the appearance of skin on the face.
What Does a Vampire Facial Do?
Getting a vampire facial could;
- Improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars and stretch marks
- Rejuvenate the under eye area
- Tighten stubborn pores
- Plump and volumise any area (e.g. cheeks) as an alternative to fillers
How Much Do They Cost?
Vampire facials UK cost around £750, but this can vary between clinics. For those who are over 40-years-old, it is recommended to get this procedure done three times – spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Younger people may only need one to see results.
You won’t normally see results for 3-4 weeks after the procedure. It is recommended to get maintenance treatment once a year.
Advantages of the Vampire Facelift
- More natural and better alternative to Botox
- No allergy testing required
- Will last an average of 15 months
- No recovery time or adverse side effects
- Results include improved skin tone, clarity and volume
- Non-invasive procedure
- More affordable than a facelift
- Although bruising is possible – especially under the eyes – it is not likely
- Relatively painless procedure
- Can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures
Disadvantages of the Vampire Facelift
- This treatment will not add volume to the face where there wasn’t any volume before. It will only add volume to areas that previously had volume (although this could be seen as an advantage, depending on what you want from the procedure)
- This procedure is not supported by objective data or national clinical trials
- Many plastic surgeons don’t believe in this procedure
- May not be FDA approved
- Bruising is more than likely
- Results are not immediate, may take several weeks
- You may not be satisfied with the results as it is not as effective as other fillers
Side Effects and Risks
- Pain at injection sites
Because your own blood is injected back into your face you technically can’t have an allergic reaction to this procedure.
