Vampire Facials – Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Microneedling with PRP
One of the newest treatments available to help rejuvenate facial skin is a treatment that uses microneedling along with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Often known as a Vampire Facial, this procedure involves the use of microneedles to create microscopic channels in the skin’s surface. In response, the body sends targeted blood cells called platelets to these areas of injury. These platelets contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors, which signal the body to begin healing and rejuvenating skin cells.
Microneedling treatment can be done with or without using PRP depending on your skin type and the condition of your skin. When microneedling is combined with PRP, it is often referred to as a Vampire Facial.
What is a Vampire Facial?
The vampire facial is a cosmeceutical treatment that uses microneedling to generate new collagen and elastin, stimulate blood flow, and promote cell turnover. The vampire facial treatment uses PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and concentrated growth factors to further enhance the results. This process rejuvenates the skin by using your own platelets that are allowed to permeate into the dermis layer of your skin and promote healing from within.
The microneedling treatment is followed by a reconstruction mask that uses advanced enzymes and rejuvenating serums that renew and restore your skin while stimulating blood flow to give you an even better appearance than before. The main goal of this facial is to improve the tone, texture, and volume of your skin.
Who Can Benefit from a Vampire Facial?
This treatment can benefit anyone who is looking to improve their skin tone, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and create a more vibrant complexion. The vampire facial can also be used to treat sun damage, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, stretch marks, fine lines, and wrinkles.
What Is Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) and How Does It Work?
We create platelet-rich plasma from a small blood sample taken from your arm and apply the resulting serum during a microneedling session. PRP contains concentrated platelets that create a microenvironment in your skin to promote collagen and elastin production and thus, stimulate collagen formation.
Platelets in the human body carry various growth factors that can stimulate soft tissue and organ regeneration. When the microneedling treatment is completed, your skin naturally begins to create new collagen, which can help fade fine lines and wrinkles, smooth skin tone for a more even look, reduce the appearance of stretch marks, acne scarring, and much more.
How Much Does a Vampire Facial Cost?
The cost of the vampire facial can vary depending on your needs and what you are looking to achieve from the treatment. We recommend scheduling a free consultation to learn more about your options and pricing.
Advanced Anti-Aging Treatment
Microneedling with PRP has great results when it comes to improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks, but can also be used for other areas like your décolleté or hands. It usually takes two treatments about four weeks apart in order to see the best results. The recovery time is about two weeks, during which time you can enjoy wearing makeup.
Because Vampire Facials stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, the procedure also improves skin texture and hyperpigmentation for smoother, softer skin that looks radiant.
