Fashion Reverie: What is the vampire facial?Dr. Fazylova: The vampire facial is a procedure by which we collect the patient’s own blood, process the blood in a specific centrifuge and it separates stem cells and growth factors within the platelets in the plasma. We take the plasma that is platelets and growth cells and we address wrinkles, pigments issues and we inject the liquid from the plasma in those problem areas. It is a natural way to regenerate growth factors and collagen on the patient’s skin. It is anti-aging, it will improve skin texture, tone of the skin, and if you inject deeply, it will help collagen grow and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.

FR: What would be the benefits of the vampire facial?

Dr. Fazylova: The benefits will help to erase the wrinkles it will improve the tone of the skin, decrease pigmentation and help to build the collagen. We start to lose collagen after the age of 25. There is also a healing property in this process, so we also use it on patients that have bad acne and scars. It has multiple ways of addressing skin problems.

FR: How would this procedure work well for brides and members of their bridal party?

Dr. Fazylova: Depending on the skin condition, the best way to get benefits from this procedure for brides-to-be and their bridal parties is do a series of the procedure, and a minimum of three. Someone who needs just a little modification of the skin with better skin tone, and texture of the skin, after only one treatment patients will find their skin will have a beautiful healthy glow. And as we know all brides want to glow on their wedding day. Sometimes if minor adjustments are needed for the skin, you will see improvement with just one treatment. However, for more long-term results for problem skin, the patient would need a series of treatments, preferably scheduled one month a part. Brides should schedule the treatment a couple of months in advance.

FR: What is the turnaround or downtime with this procedure where you can actually see the benefits?

Dr. Fazylova: There is barely any downtime with the vampire facial. You may have some redness for up to 24 hours. The procedure does have healing properties, so there is no skin damage after the procedure. My clients actually achieve the glowing skin effect after the redness is gone, a few days later. If we are working on more severe skin challenges, you see benefits after a couple of weeks. What is good about this therapeutic procedure is that benefits continue well beyond the procedure. It stimulates collagen production and will continue well past a year if the patient has received up to three treatments.

FR: Who should not have this procedure? 

Dr. Fazylova: Any client that comes to us we perform a 3-D skin analysis that shows skin damage up to three layers. Clients that have active lesions, rosacea, psoriasis, or active acne are not good candidates for the vampire facial. If clients have severe skin issues we recommend other treatments to treat those challenges, wait for the results and then they may be good candidates for the vampire facial.

    Vampire facial before and after

FR: Why is this procedure so popular among celebrities?Dr. Fazylova: First, the vampire facial is very popular among celebrities because it is a very natural procedure; it is not toxic, nothing is injected into your body but your own blood. There is never any bad reaction to the procedure, there are also no complications if it injected around the eyes or other sensitive areas. And the client also sees a great result and it is again your own blood regenerating your own cells to work more efficiently.

FR: What are the price points for this procedure at Radiance Aesthetic and Wellness Spa?

Dr. Fazylova: Our price point for the vampire facial for one treatment is $950 for the face, if the client needs face and neck the price point is $1250; however, if they want buy a package we offer discounts of 20% to 25% off.

FR: What other body parts to you use the vampire facial for other than face and neck?

Dr. Fazylova: It depends on what the client needs. It could be done additionally on patient’s chest and décolleté, as well as hands. We have seen great results on hands. This treatment is great for a bride that is wearing a bridal gown that has dipping décolletage. This treatment has also been done for the back.

FR: Could you speak to the IPL Skin Rejuvenation with pulse light that you also perform at Radiance Aesthetic and Wellness Spa?Dr. Fazylova: The IPL Skin Rejuvenation is a type of laser treatment that is used to treat hyperpigmentation or sun damage and can treat rosacea blotchy skin, redness, and broken capillaries. It is very quick treatment that takes around 20 minutes. There is also very little downtime. The patient can go back to work the next day or even the same day, looking refreshed and vibrant.

FR: What is the price point on this treatment?

Dr. Fazylova: At Radiance Aesthetic and Wellness Spa the price is $150 and if the patient buys a package that get 20% to 25% off.

FR: Which consumers are not good candidates for this treatment?

Dr. Fazylova: It is not safe for clients that have dark skin and/or skin type 5 and skin type 6. IPL Skin Rejuvenation targets red and brown pigment and the treatment could burn off some of the pigment that darker skin clients already have. They could develop light spots on their skin. Also, patients that take antibiotics or certain antidepressants that make them photosensitive are also not good candidates for IPL Skin Rejuvenation.

This treatment is primarily for clients that have fair skin and are having issues with hyperpigmentation and have skin issues due to sun damage. The vampire facial is excellent for patients with darker skin.

                                          Radiance Aesthetic and Wellness Spa

FR: How should consumers pursue IPL Skin Rejuvenation?Dr. Fazylova: This treatment should be purchased in a package of three treatments with each treatment scheduled one month a part to see great results. The patient could then repurchase another package, if need be, in six months. The patient should not go out in the sun a lot after receiving the treatment, so the best time to have the procedure is in the winter and early spring.

FR: Brides typically wear quite a bit of makeup on their very special day. What is the downtime between getting IPL Skin Rejuvenation and/or the vampire facial and wearing makeup? And, what other products should brides not use if they have recently had these procedures?

Dr. Fazylova: Patients should not do any peels soon after these procedures. They should also not use products with Vitamin C. We provide our clients after the procedures with a post-treatment kit that provides them product they should use weeks after the procedure, as well as a skincare regimen.
