Vampire Facial

Look Forever Young with the Vampire Facial

Want rejuvenated, younger-looking skin without requiring surgery or invasive injections?  Then it’s time to discover the Vampire Facial, now available at Nowak Aesthetics in Chula Vista, CA! 

What Is the Vampire Facial?

The Vampire Facial is a unique treatment that uses the power of your own growth factors and cytokines to rejuvenate and repair skin.  This method utilizes platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to encourage renewed collagen and elastin production, as well as increase cellular turnover.

With just a few treatments, skin will look so refreshed and rejuvenated that you’ll swear you’re immortal.

How Does the Vampire Facial Work?

The Vampire Facial is performed in two stages: 1) extraction and separating of the PRP; and 2) micro needling.  During the first stage, a small amount of blood is removed from the body (about 2 tablespoons), at which point the PRP is extracted via a centrifuge.  It’s all performed right in the office!  Once the PRP is obtained, Dr. Nowak “activates” the 8 major growth factors within your PRP to encourage your cells’ wound-healing processes.

During the next stage, a micro-needling device is used to created tiny puncture wounds in the skin to encourage collagen production, while making it possible for the PRP to sink deeper into the dermis.  At this point, Dr. Nowak applies the PRP which contains the growth factors to the micro-wounds.  The growth factors within the PRP immediately get to work encouraging the production of new skin, blood vessels, and even fatty tissue. 

Essentially, the Vampire Facial treatment encourages your stem cells to “repair” skin that wasn’t damaged in the first place – resulting in a gorgeous, younger-looking appearance!

The entire treatment takes about an hour to perform.  There’s minimal discomfort associated with the procedure; many patients compare it to feeling a piece of sandpaper being moved across the skin.

Am I a Good Candidate For a Vampire Facial?

You’re a good candidate for a Vampire Facial if you’re looking for refreshed and rejuvenated skin.  It’s an excellent treatment for clients who are concerned with hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, wrinkling, and other signs of aging skin.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Since the Vampire Facial doesn’t involve surgery or incisions, this means there’s little to no downtime associated with this procedure.  However, patients should expect slight redness and swelling for a few days.  It’s important to wear sunscreen after the treatment, as skin will be sensitive to sunlight.

What Results Should I Expect?

Results from your Vampire Facial will be seen within the first two months after treatment.  Your skin will appear smoother and more rejuvenated.  Most clients undergo multiple treatments to achieve their desired results; however, results from one procedure can last anywhere from 1 to 2 years!
