The Vampire Facial also known as the platelet rich plasma (PRP) facelift is a non-invasive treatment with a multitude of benefits that I absolutely needed to try out.
I chose to have the PRP facial with reputable aesthetic doctor – Dr. Reza Mia at his exquisite anti – aging clinic – Anti – Aging Art in Houghton, Johannesburg.
- Acne and acne scarring
- Pore size reduction
- Sun damage
Platelets are separated from the blood forming a serum, which is then micro-needled into your skin, which stimulates collagen, therefore this procedure has also earned various names such as: the vampire facelift, Dracula facial and plasma beauty treatment.
The effectiveness of this procedure differs from person to person and also depends on the skill of the professional performing this plasma facial.
Vampire facial benefits should be visible once bruising subsides, after your first treatment and a total of four to six treatments are required for any skin concern to improve considerably.
Pre Vampire Facial:
Avoid aspirin or any blood thinning medication one week prior to your vampire treatment as this can accelerate bruising.
Vampire Facial Procedure:
An aesthetic is applied to your skin, which does aid in reducing pain however not completely.
Blood is drawn from your arm and goes through a procedure to extract platelets subsequently forming a serum.

Post Vampire Facial:
For maximum results the vampire facial aftercare is simple: keep the serum on for at least twenty-four hours before washing your face.
Again, avoid blood thinning medication and alcohol consumption for six hours after your vampire facial treatment to avoid bruising.
Only a qualified doctor should perform this treatment.
I’ve honestly have not had a facial procedure with such immediate results in skin rejuvenation as this platelet rich plasma facial – therefore I highly recommend that you give it a go!
Within two days I noticed that my wrinkles were filled out around my eye area and mouth area, my pores were significantly refined; furthermore my skin is softer and supple with a healthy glow that I still have a month later.
My pigmentation and freckles however seems to be stubborn, whilst it appears to be a few shades lighter – I would need additional treatments to clarify this skin concern.
One day down time
It is an uncomfortable treatment – but not as bad as it looks.
Would I use it again?
It’s not a procedure I will do too often, but it is something I will opt for rather than Botox and fillers – the results, of course are more natural with regards to getting rid of wrinkles.
I would opt to do it twice a year or as I need it, with the combination of other skin care treatments.
Dr. Reza Mia and the anti – aging team were professional throughout the procedure and I felt safe in their hands.
The procedure has to be done correctly in order to have such quick results as I did, therefore I cannot stress enough on how important it is to have a reputable doctor perform this treatment – do not opt for cheaper options at the risk of unwanted complications.
