The Vampire Facial Trend

One of the hottest trends in med spas!

The Vampire Facial Trend

The vampire facial trend is one of hottest in med spas. So what is it, anyway? The vampire facial is a microneedling treatment during which a pen with tiny needles passes over the skin, creating tiny injuries that provide a pathway for platelet-rich plasma to pass through. Microneedling is an excellent treatment option to address a variety of skins concerns, such as:

Not As Scary as the Name

Microneedling treatment is called a “vampire facial” when a patient’s own blood is used to extract platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and inject it into the skin. With its natural growth factors, PRP helps stimulate the production of collagen to make the microneedling treatment even more effective.

At Salt Spa, our providers will safely draw a blood sample from you. A centrifuge then separates the various components of your blood, which usually takes about 15 minutes. We use the natural growth factors in microneedling to induce collagen.

Keeping You Safe

Earlier this month, NPR published a rather scary story about three women who contracted HIV after receiving a vampire facial at an unlicensed spa in New Mexico. Unlicensed spas are not under the supervision of a licensed physician, which could put you at risk.

At Salt Spa, we take your health and safety seriously. Our med spa is affiliated with and under the supervision of Dr. Nicholas Galardi and Dr. Byers Bowen of Galardi Bowen Plastic Surgery. Our team of providers maintain active licensing in their field to perform a variety of aesthetic and medical procedures with the utmost regard for your safety. So whether you want to get a vampire facial or an IV drip, you can feel confident that you are in good hands.
