5 Reasons The Vampire Facial Is The Future Of Anti-Ageing
The name Vampire Facial sounds kind of ominous – but it’s actually a very exciting anti-ageing treatment that’s fast gaining in popularity.
The Vampire Facial (also referred to as a blood facial) is one of the most talked-about anti-ageing treatments of this decade. Instead of cutting, slicing or using unnatural substances to fill, remove or reduce wrinkles, the Vampire Facial harnesses the very powerful, natural healing ability of your body to reduce the signs of ageing. Giving you a fresher, firmer and more youthful appearance in a more natural way.
In fact, back in 2015 the uptake of the Vampire Facial grew by a whopping 25% and its popularity has continued to increase steadily ever since. This boom was thanks to the huge media coverage and several celebrities announcing that their youthful appearance was partly down to this innovative procedure.
But is this just another beauty fad that’s going to disappear as soon as the hype dies down?
I don’t think so – here’s why…
1: The Vampire Facial Harnesses Your Body’s Own Regeneration Power
The real beauty of the Vampire Facial is that it doesn’t manipulate or change your body forcibly like surgery, but instead harnesses your body’s own ability to heal and regenerate. A Vampire Facial is a type of PRP treatment that uses your own platelets from your blood to stimulate a healing response.
During the treatment, your aesthetic doctor takes some of your blood, like in a blood test, then places that blood into a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma. This platelet-rich plasma is then inserted into the deeper layers of the skin on your face using a microneedling device.
Once inside your body, the platelets get to work. Stimulating the regeneration of old, weakened skin cells and promoting the growth of new collagen and elastin. Giving you brighter, healthier and more youthful-looking skin.

2: It’s Non-Surgical & Pretty Much Pain-Free
The Vampire Facial is a non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment. This means there’s no need for a general anaesthetic and no cutting, slicing, scarring or trauma to your face.
The microneedling device creates tiny puncture holes, pushing the regenerating platelet-rich plasma into the skin. Although this might sound unpleasant, the holes are so minuscule that it’s actually much more comfortable than you would expect.
Before the treatment, your aesthetic doctor will apply a local anaesthetic cream to help numb your face and reduce any discomfort. Most people say that the procedure is a relatively painless experience, so it’s easy to see why it is such a popular treatment.
3: It’s Safe & There’s No Recovery Time Needed
PRP treatments are safe, effective and have been used for medical purposes, such as healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints for many years.
Because the Vampire Facial uses only your own platelets, there’s no risk of allergies or adverse reactions. Some people experience some mild redness and swelling due to the tiny microneedles, but this resolves without intervention within 24-48 hours. You don’t need to rest following the treatment or take any time off work to recover.
There’s no general anaesthetic required so none of the risks associated with being put to sleep either. Making it much safer than a surgical facelift or some other anti-ageing treatments.

4: It Does More Than Just Anti-Ageing
A surgical facelift can tighten your skin and stretch out your wrinkles. Injectable fillers can help reduce wrinkles and plump drooping or sagging skin. But a Vampire Facial can do more than just anti-ageing.
Because a Vampire Facial works on healing and regenerating the cells in your skin, it can help give your face a more vibrant appearance. Dull, lacklustre skin can be brightened, wrinkles smoothed, large pores reduced and skin tone and texture improved.
Giving you not only fewer wrinkles and younger-looking skin but a brighter, firmer and healthier appearance too.
5: It’s A Very Affordable Treatment
The popularity of non-surgical anti-ageing treatments is increasing fast, and it’s easy to see why. Not only are they safe, painless and less traumatic to the body than surgical treatments, they’re low-cost too.
Here in the UK, a Vampire Facial starts from just £450 – making it an affordable anti-ageing treatment.
Lower cost procedures don’t just mean you can save money, but they make anti-ageing treatments available to more people, instead of just the rich and famous. Part of our mission here at Elite Aesthetics is to enable as many people as possible to get access to these treatments, boosting body confidence and helping them to feel more comfortable with their appearance.
