What is a Vampire Facial all about?

One of the new ways of getting a rejuvenated look is to have a Vampire facial. It’s a non-surgical way of enlivening the face and essentially lifting it without going under the knife. It’s become very popular in part to celebrities and influencers like Kim Kardashian and Ferne MCann from TOWIE having them done. What is the process and what actually happens?

First off all the rather dramatic “vampire” part needs to be addressed. You are not going to be visited in the middle of the night by some dubious Count with an East European accent saying “I vant to suck yorr bludd”, nor are you going to have a young Kiefer Sutherland tapping on your window asking to be let in (mores the pity!). What is going to happen is that you are going to undergo a course of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy. To allay your other fear no one else’s blood is going to be used except your own. You do need to have it done properly and Vampire Facial Cardiff way can be safely and perfectly done with a visit to https://cathedralfacialaesthetics.co.uk/non-surgical-facelift/vampire-facial-prp/  to start off. What else is involved?

We all have Platelets. If you get a cut the platelets in your blood rush to the wound and start to bind together to close it up and form a temporary block whilst the skin heals around it. Basically, the scab that forms afterwards is the Platelets doing their job. They also repair everything around them. They really are the one of the most useful and amazing parts of your bodies make up.

Vampire facials work by taking this blood, painlessly, usually from your arm, and then removing the platelets via a special machine. This platelet free blood is then applied to your face with tiny needles much like in acupuncture. I should say at this point this will be done under a local anaesthetic so you won’t feel a thing. You might get some bruising and puffiness but this will fade after a few days.

It works by reducing the usual face wrinkles and scars and that all important area under the eyes. It also opens up the pores which can be very hard to prise apart in the face creating the dreaded blackhead and spots. It also makes the cheeks glow and generally removes the need for traditional fillers. It’s a lot cheaper than a face lift and it only needs to be done on an annual basis. It does take a few weeks for the effects to be seen.
