What does a Vampire Facial® Do?

If you want youthful, luminous skin without going under the knife or having to take time off from your life, a Vampire Facial® could be exactly what you're looking for. These incredible skin treatments use your own blood to help your skin regenerate youthful cells and bring a lovely glow to your face. At Enhanced Wellness of New Mexico, in Albuquerque, we specialize in these incredible treatments.

How Does a Vampire Facial Work?

These treatments use plasma-rich platelets, or PRP that are already in your blood to prompt your body to produce more collagen. It's an organic, safe, minimally-invasive way to coax your skin into making collagen. Through micro-needling, the PRP is fully incorporated into the skin so it can start rolling back the clock.

THE BENEFITS

More Collagen

Collagen is the magic ingredient that helps your skin look as youthful as possible. By promoting collagen production, this treatment can take years off your face. Although the results will vary for everyone, most people find that they look younger and more refreshed after this treatment. Collagen promotes firm, bouncy skin that looks dewy and wrinkle-free. It's a great way to get a radiant, healthy glow.


Lessen wrinkles and fine lines with the Vampire Facial®.

Less Prominent Wrinkles and Fine Lines

If you want to minimize the look of your wrinkles and fine lines, this treatment is a good choice for you. Many people find that their wrinkles and fine lines smooth out after just one session. It's common to see a huge reduction in wrinkles and lines around the mouth, corners of the eyes, and forehead. Fewer wrinkles automatically make your skin look younger and fresher.


Shrinking Pores

Larger pores can mar the look of your face and make your skin look slightly uneven. Fortunately, this treatment can help make pores look smaller and can give you a more radiant and even skin tone. Most people start seeing results quickly, sometimes after a single session.


Even-Textured Skin

Uneven texture and red patches can age skin prematurely and make it look less luminous than it normally would. Fortunately, this treatment can smooth out skin tone, even the texture, and even help minimize the look of hyperpigmentation. Many people see dramatic results in just one session. These treatments can give you a serious beauty boost without going under the knife.


Minimized Sun Damage and Acne Scars

Acne scarring and sun damage can also make your skin look uneven. Fortunately, this treatment can help minimize scarring and sun damage dramatically. Many people see results in just a single session and are amazed at how great their skin looks.

Increased Luminosity

One of the biggest benefits of this treatment is that your skin will look luminous and radiant, thanks to the increase in collagen. Luminous skin automatically looks a lot younger, and a dewy complexion can make you more confident and younger when you look like you have an inner glow.

Is There a Way to Do It Myself?

The vast majority of people don't have the equipment to do this treatment at home, but even if you do have the proper equipment, it's best left to the professionals.

How Long Will the Results Last?

All results vary, but many people see improvements that last for at least six months or even closer to a year. There are a lot of factors that contribute to the longevity of your results, including lifestyle, genetics, and sun exposure. If you want to prolong the results of your treatment, it's a good idea to adhere to a healthy lifestyle and practice smart skin protection when it comes to being outside in the sun.


Are There Specific Ways I Should Care for My Skin?

You should avoid strenuous exercise for about a day after your session. Activities that cause a lot of sweating could irritate your skin. If you go out in the sun, make sure that you wear sunscreen and try to minimize your time outside. Other than those two things, you can continue with your life as you always have been.
