Our patients love the results this treatment delivers. It’s excellent for your anti-aging arsenal.
The Vampire Facial® uses the power of your own body to rejuvenate and restructure the skin on your face, neck, chest or anywhere that needs brightening and improved tone and texture. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is separated from your red blood cells and microneedled into the treatment area. Microneedling on its own is highly beneficial for the skin, but when coupled with the regenerative proteins and growth factors from your PRP, it turns back the clock on aging.
Some of the most famous celebrities are fans of the Vampire Facial® and for good reason.

How does it work?
We take your platelet-rich plasma and microneedle it into the treatment area, delivering the platelets deep into your tissues. The microneedling stimulates new collagen and elastin growth while causing tightening. Meanwhile, your platelet-rich plasma signals to your stem cells to migrate to the treatment areas to become brand new skin cells.
When can I expect results?
Effects on skin texture and tightening are apparent in three weeks, but collagen formation takes a full three months.
What does it treat?
The Vampire Facial generates natural collagen improving the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Treatment reduces the appearance of scars, minimizes pore size and strengthens the skin improving tone & texture.
How long do results last?
Our recommendation is three treatments one month apart, with one treatment a quarter for spectacular anti-aging benefits. However, the results from just three treatments may last between one and two years. Many of our patients build PRP Facials into their long-term, anti-aging plan because this powerful treatment yields youthful-looking, even-toned, firm and radiant skin.
Does it hurt?
We apply a topical numbing cream for 20 to 60 minutes prior to the procedure to keep patients comfortable, but many patients say the treatment is relaxing. It’s been reported that the microneedling feels like an ultrasonic toothbrush on the face, a mild vibration.
Recovery time & side effects?
You may be red, like a windburned appearance, immediately after treatment but this subsides within a few days.
Who is a good candidate?
Those with premature wrinkles, high levels of sun damage, or anyone who wants improved tone and texture and a more youthful-looking appearance.
What is the procedure time?
Treatment duration varies depending on the areas we’re treating. Often the procedure is complete in under 90 minutes.
