Vampire Blood Facial

Vampire Blood Facial

Refresh & Revitalize

A platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment, more commonly known as a vampire blood facial, uses your body’s platelets to improve your skin’s elasticity, texture and volume, addressing various skin woes. Improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduce acne scarring and sun damage, even out discoloration and return a softness back to your skin with vampire facials. 

So how does it work?

The procedure uses the concepts behind microneedling to use your body’s natural healing processes to boost collagen production in the skin. The added benefit is where the facial gets its name. A licensed provider takes a vial of your blood ahead of your treatment and passes that blood through a centrifuge. That process separates the plasma, full of skin-boosting platelets from your red blood cells, allowing your provider to then apply or inject that plasma into your skin.

Once your mind is wrapped around the process, you can consider the results: softer, more supple skin, a boost in elasticity and an overall improvement in the tone, texture and vibrancy of the skin. See the results for yourself and schedule a vampire facial in Orange County.

Frequently Asked Questions

A vampire facial is a cosmetic treatment that uses your body’s platelets to stimulate collagen production and new, healthy cell growth in targeted areas of the skin. 

Here’s how it works: A provider draws a sample of your own blood. That blood is then passed through a centrifuge to remove the plasma, rich in platelets responsible for the treatment’s desired effects. While that’s happening, the patient undergoes a traditional microneedling procedure. The final step is then an application of those platelets into targeted areas of the face.

Much like the positive benefits of microneedling, a vampire facial uses your body’s natural tissue healing processes to boost your body’s production of collagen. The added benefit is the injection of platelets from the blood draw you get as part of your treatment. Those platelets add to your skin’s collagen production and promote new growth of healthy skin cells.

The result is brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin and a reduction in all of the things that have kept you from putting your best face forward. 

Yes, vampire facials really work. Some patients will see results within a week, but most will see improvements over several months. Your facial will be like the gift that keeps on giving, with steady progress over time toward the rejuvenated skin you came in for. 

Ideal candidates are men and women looking for cosmetic treatments to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars and an uneven skin tone or texture.

You’ll need to undergo a blood draw so that your provider has something to work with when it’s time for your facial. That’s the most uncomfortable part of the procedure for most. Before your microneedling and platelet injections, your provider will apply a topical numbing cream to your treatment to prevent any major discomfort during that part of the procedure.

You may experience some redness, swelling or bruising after your procedure. This is normal and will go away for most within a few days.

A vampire facial is safe as long as it’s performed by a licensed professional at a facility like the Med Lounge. You can rest assured that any equipment used is sterilized ahead of each use, and any providers working with you are certified to do so. You’re in the right hands with us. 

Typical results last anywhere from 6 months to over a year after a vampire facial. Results can vary based on your age and the skin issues you’re looking to address. 

Your vampire facial cost will be determined by how many sessions you’ll need for ideal results. Most people need anywhere from 3 to 6 sessions for the results they desire, spaced out about every four weeks or so. Chat with one of our experts at the Med Lounge to get started with a personalized treatment plan for you and your skin needs.

What to Expect With Vampire Facial

For the best results and to reduce the chance of any side effects after your treatment, our experts at the Med Lounge have a few tips around what to expect with a vampire facial before and after your procedure.

PRE-TREATMENT

  • Anyone with a history of blood clotting problems, anemia or any blood diseases is not a good candidate for a vampire facial. Anyone with active skin infections should not be considering a treatment until that infection has completely cleared up. Your provider may be able to develop an alternative treatment for you with your health history in mind.
  • Let your doctor know if you have a history of cold sores. You’ll need a prescription to get rid of any active infection or prevent an infection after your treatment. 
  • Avoid any anti-inflammatories for up to three days ahead of your PRP facial, as you could be putting yourself at risk for an increase in bleeding or bruising.
  • Try to avoid too much sun in the two weeks before your treatment. You don’t want to come to your appointment with a sunburn, which would leave your skin more sensitive.
  • Avoid any topical treatments — that includes retinoids, exfoliants, topical antibiotics and acids — that may leave your skin more sensitive in the week before your vampire facial. 
  • Come to your appointment fresh-faced. Your provider will be cleansing your skin before applying a topical numbing agent regardless.
  • Drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your treatment. Hydrated skin is healthy skin.

POST-TREATMENT

  • Avoid wearing makeup in the first few days after your treatment. Wash any makeup brushes before using them for the first time after your treatment.
  • A light cleanser is fine the day after your PRP facial, but avoid returning to a regular skin routine for at least 48 hours post-treatment if that includes retinol, exfoliants or acne medications.
  • Avoid any direct sun exposure or lengthy time in the sun in the first few days after your treatment. Wear an SPF 30 or higher daily when you’re out in the sun after that point.
  • Try to avoid intense exercise or exposure to extreme heat, like in saunas or hot tubs, for at least 24 hours after treatment.
  • Some redness is expected in the day or two after your treatment. That redness, much like a sunburn, should go away on its own.
  • You may experience some bruising where you get your blood is drawn or some minor bruising on your face where you had your microneedling. A cold pack may be used to reduce any bruising or swelling, but make sure to only apply the ice pack in 5-minute intervals.
  • Talk to your provider immediately if you’re experiencing more severe side effects like excessive bruising or signs of infection.

BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) Important Information

 

Indications

BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is indicated in adult patients for the temporary improvement in the appearance of:

– Moderate to severe glabellar lines associated with corrugator and/or procerus muscle activity

– Moderate to severe lateral canthal lines associated with orbicularis oculi activity

 

– Moderate to severe forehead lines associated with frontalis activity

 

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION, INCLUDING BOXED WARNING

 

WARNING: DISTANT SPREAD OF TOXIN EFFECT

Postmarketing reports indicate that the effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic and all botulinum toxin products may spread from the area of injection to produce symptoms consistent with botulinum toxin effects. These may include asthenia, generalized muscle weakness, diplopia, ptosis, dysphagia, dysphonia, dysarthria, urinary incontinence, and breathing difficulties. These symptoms have been reported hours to weeks after injection. Swallowing and breathing difficulties can be life threatening and there have been reports of death. The risk of symptoms is probably greatest in children treated for spasticity, but symptoms can also occur in adults treated for spasticity and other conditions, particularly in those patients who have an underlying condition that would predispose them to these symptoms. In unapproved uses and approved indications, cases of spread of effect have been reported at doses comparable to those used to treat cervical dystonia and spasticity and at lower doses.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

BOTOX® Cosmetic is contraindicated in the presence of infection at the proposed injection site(s) and in individuals with known hypersensitivity to any botulinum toxin preparation or to any of the components in the formulation.

WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

Lack of Interchangeability Between Botulinum Toxin Products

The potency units of BOTOX® Cosmetic are specific to the preparation and assay method utilized. They are not interchangeable with other preparations of botulinum toxin products and, therefore, units of biological activity of BOTOX® Cosmetic cannot be compared to nor converted into units of any other botulinum toxin products assessed with any other specific assay method.

Spread of Toxin Effect

Please refer to Boxed Warning for Distant Spread of Toxin Effect.

No definitive serious adverse event reports of distant spread of toxin effect associated with dermatologic use of BOTOX® Cosmetic at the labeled dose of 20 Units (for glabellar lines), 24 Units (for lateral canthal lines), 40 Units (for forehead lines with glabellar lines), 44 Units (for simultaneous treatment of lateral canthal lines and glabellar lines), and 64 Units (for simultaneous treatment of lateral canthal lines, glabellar lines, and forehead lines) have been reported. Patients or caregivers should be advised to seek immediate medical care if swallowing, speech, or respiratory disorders occur.

Serious Adverse Reactions With Unapproved Use

Serious adverse reactions, including excessive weakness, dysphagia, and aspiration pneumonia, with some adverse reactions associated with fatal outcomes, have been reported in patients who received BOTOX® injections for unapproved uses. In these cases, the adverse reactions were not necessarily related to distant spread of toxin, but may have resulted from the administration of BOTOX® to the site of injection and/or adjacent structures. In several of the cases, patients had pre-existing dysphagia or other significant disabilities. There is insufficient information to identify factors associated with an increased risk for adverse reactions associated with the unapproved uses of BOTOX®. The safety and effectiveness of BOTOX® for unapproved uses have not been established.

Hypersensitivity Reactions

Serious and/or immediate hypersensitivity reactions have been reported. These reactions include anaphylaxis, serum sickness, urticaria, soft-tissue edema, and dyspnea. If such reactions occur, further injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic should be discontinued and appropriate medical therapy immediately instituted. One fatal case of anaphylaxis has been reported in which lidocaine was used as the diluent and, consequently, the causal agent cannot be reliably determined.

Cardiovascular System

There have been reports following administration of BOTOX® of adverse events involving the cardiovascular system, including arrhythmia and myocardial infarction, some with fatal outcomes. Some of these patients had risk factors including pre-existing cardiovascular disease. Use caution when administering to patients with pre-existing cardiovascular disease.

Increased Risk of Clinically Significant Effects With Pre-existing Neuromuscular Disorders

Individuals with peripheral motor neuropathic diseases, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or neuromuscular junction disorders (eg, myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome) should be monitored when given botulinum toxin. Patients with neuromuscular disorders may be at increased risk of clinically significant effects including generalized muscle weakness, diplopia, ptosis, dysphonia, dysarthria, severe dysphagia, and respiratory compromise from onabotulinumtoxinA (see Warnings and Precautions).

Dysphagia and Breathing Difficulties

Treatment with BOTOX® and other botulinum toxin products can result in swallowing or breathing difficulties. Patients with pre-existing swallowing or breathing difficulties may be more susceptible to these complications. In most cases, this is a consequence of weakening of muscles in the area of injection that are involved in breathing or oropharyngeal muscles that control swallowing or breathing (see Boxed Warning).

Pre-existing Conditions at the Injection Site

Caution should be used when BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is used in the presence of inflammation at the proposed injection site(s) or when excessive weakness or atrophy is present in the target muscle(s).

Dry Eye in Patients Treated With BOTOX® Cosmetic

There have been reports of dry eye associated with BOTOX® Cosmetic injection in or near the orbicularis oculi muscle. If symptoms of dry eye (eg, eye irritation, photophobia, or visual changes) persist, consider referring patients to an ophthalmologist.

Human Albumin and Transmission of Viral Diseases

This product contains albumin, a derivative of human blood. Based on effective donor screening and product manufacturing processes, it carries an extremely remote risk for transmission of viral diseases and variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD). There is a theoretical risk for transmission of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD), but if that risk actually exists, the risk of transmission would also be considered extremely remote. No cases of transmission of viral diseases, CJD or vCJD have ever been identified for licensed albumin or albumin contained in other licensed products.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

The most frequently reported adverse reactions following injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic for glabellar lines were eyelid ptosis (3%), facial pain (1%), facial paresis (1%), and muscular weakness (1%).

The most frequently reported adverse reaction following injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic for lateral canthal lines was eyelid edema (1%).

The most frequently reported adverse reactions following injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic for forehead lines with glabellar lines were headache (9%), brow ptosis (2%), and eyelid ptosis (2%).

DRUG INTERACTIONS

Co-administration of BOTOX® Cosmetic and aminoglycosides or other agents interfering with neuromuscular transmission (eg, curare-like compounds) should only be performed with caution as the effect of the toxin may be potentiated. Use of anticholinergic drugs after administration of BOTOX® Cosmetic may potentiate systemic anticholinergic effects.

The effect of administering different botulinum neurotoxin products at the same time or within several months of each other is unknown. Excessive neuromuscular weakness may be exacerbated by

administration of another botulinum toxin prior to the resolution of the effects of a previously administered botulinum toxin.

Excessive weakness may also be exaggerated by administration of a muscle relaxant before or after administration of BOTOX® Cosmetic.

USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

There are no studies or adequate data from postmarketing surveillance on the developmental risk associated with use of BOTOX® Cosmetic in pregnant women. There are no data on the presence of BOTOX® Cosmetic in human or animal milk, the effects on the breastfed child, or the effects on milk production.
