5 Ways A Vampire Facial Can Transform Your Skin

It’s no secret that the Vampire Facial is one of the most revolutionary anti-ageing treatments available. In this blog, we share 5 of the ways a Vampire Facial will totally rejuvenate your skin.


But first, let’s start with the basics  – like why it is called a Vampire Facial and what you can expect from the treatment…

Vampire Facial

What is A Vampire Facial?

You could be forgiven for thinking it’s to do with the fact that vampires never age…but it’s actually named ‘vampire’ because the facial uses extracted plasma from your blood to rejuvenate your skin. Although it sounds a little strange, the process is simple with little discomfort and the results are incredible – and you can still eat garlic!

How Does It Work?

A little of your blood is collected, which is no more painful than a blood test at the doctors. Then your blood is spun in a centrifuge (a machine that spins so fast the different parts of your blood separate). It’s the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) that does the magic, so once that’s extracted, the Vampire Facial can begin.

The PRP is applied to your face, which will have been numbed with an anaesthetic cream, using the microneedling procedure. This is where a tiny needle makes micro channels into the skin, kick-starting your body’s repair response.


With the addition of your PRP, the end result is a facial that defies ageing – you’ll see why a slew of celebrities, like Kourtney Kardashian, Rupert Everett and supermodel Bar Refaeli swear by its anti-ageing properties.

So now you know a little about what the Vampire Facial is and the process, let’s delve into how it can transform your skin…

New Collagen For Beautiful Skin

The heart of what the Vampire Facial does is regenerate and renew your skin’s collagen supply. From as early as your mid-twenties your body slows its collagen production and the signs of ageing begin to show.

What is collagen and why is it so important, you ask? Collagen is a protein that’s found throughout your body; from your skin to your eyes, joints and your bones. In skin, its purpose is to strengthen and support the structure from within. Some collagen fibrils (the component parts of collagen bound together) are stronger than steel!

Like scaffolding, the collagen fibres ‘hold up’ your skin, keeping it smooth, even and plump. As these fibres age and deplete, lines and wrinkles begin to show.

While collagen loss is completely natural, some lifestyle choices can speed up the process. Smoking and UV light are the two main culprits behind collagen breakdown but poor diet can also contribute too – sugar and caffeine have been proven to inhibit its production.

Vampire facial Collagen

Managing ageing skin can be tricky, but cutting down on sugary foods, switching to caffeine-free drinks and wearing a good sunscreen can help to preserve the collagen you have. However, if you want a return to your more youthful, plump skin then the Vampire Facial is the ideal treatment. Many opt for the Vampire Facial because it works to naturally stimulate your body’s collagen production, unlike fillers or Botox.



So, What Can You Expect To See Following Your Vampire Facial?


As an all-over treatment, the Vampire Facial is phenomenal at targeting many different problems at the same time. So while you may be concerned about one aspect of your skin, you’ll benefit from so many other outcomes too.

Reduced Lines And Wrinkles

Wrinkles form when the structure below the skin’s surface starts to fail. The reduction in collagen means that the skin has ‘gaps’ in support and as a result, settles into the gaps leaving crevices and lines. 


The most common areas that we see wrinkles form are on the forehead, between the eyes, at the corner of the eyes and around the mouth. The Vampire Facial can help to minimise all of these lines, leaving you fresh-faced.

Brighter Under Eye Area

Dark shadows under your eyes can add years to your appearance, as well as make you look tired, ill or sallow. And unlike wrinkles, they can start to show from as early as your teens. The delicate skin under your eyes is naturally thinner, so any loss in elasticity or firmness can result in a bluish tinge that circles the undereye area.

The Vampire Facial will help to lift the skin under your eyes, alleviating the shadows and making you look brighter and more rested.

Blood Facial

Acne Scar Reduction

The trauma of moderate to severe acne can be felt long after the lesions have healed. Acne scars can leave you feeling self-conscious and shy, a constant reminder of problematic skin.


The Vampire Facial allows your skin to rebuild the pockmarked areas by putting the growth factors contained within the PRP to good use. The PRP stimulates the connective tissue cells, diminishing or removing acne scars for good. Read our blog on acne scar treatments here for all of our solutions.

Even Skin Tone


Your facial skin bears the brunt of your daily activity and lifestyle choices, and due to this, can show different shades and tones. From darker brown spots to redder zones, uneven skin tone can be hard to disguise with makeup. Hormones, sun damage, scarring and pollution all contribute to hyperpigmentation, which causes colour differences in your skin.

The Vampire Facial helps to kickstart the regeneration of epidermal cells (the microchannels coerce your body into repairing the skin) so you are left with a clearer, more even skin surface.

Minimising Pores

Large pores are another unwanted side-effect of ageing skin. As the structure below the skin’s surface becomes unstable, your skin begins to sag. This makes your pores appear larger and sometimes darker. The PRP in the Vampire Facial helps to restore your skin’s elasticity, which tightens your pores.

So, there you have it, a single treatment that will transform your skin in many ways. It’s no wonder this facial was one that hit the headlines with its successes. The Vampire Facial gives your body all it needs to take care of itself, leaving you with a natural, long-lasting glow.
