The Vampire Facial® is a specialized procedure designed to rejuvenate and restructure your face, neck, chest or anywhere you chose to treat.
Gisele Bundchen Gets Vampire Facial®
The procedure is relatively simple and performed in the office in under an hour. First, while your skin is numbing topically, we draw your blood and separate your platelets. Then we spread them over the treatment area and use a micro needling device to deliver the platelets deep into your tissues. The micro needling will stimulate the cells that you already have in your skin to make new collagen and elastin while causing tightening and lightening. Meanwhile, the platelets will signal to your natural stem cells to migrate to the treated areas and they will become brand new skin cells.
Basically, we stimulate what is there AND then recruit new to make your skin tighter and glow with a gorgeous color. Even scars can be softened for a beautiful younger and very natural result.
PRP Facial FAQs
Does it hurt?
We apply a topical numbing cream for 20- 60 minutes prior to the procedure. Many patients say the micro needling feels like an ultrasonic toothbrush on the face, just a mild vibration.
How long does an appointment take?
Depending on the number of areas we are treating, an appointment requires less than 90 minutes.
Is there any recovery time?
There may be swelling, bruising and/or redness in the treated area for less than a week typically.
When are the effects of the facial visible?
Effects on skin texture and tightening are apparent in 3 weeks, but collagen formation takes a full 3 months.
How long will my results last?
The results vary, but as long as you do the 3 treatments as recommended one month apart, they generally last up 1-2 years in most patients.
How many treatments are needed?
We recommend 3 treatments, spaced one month apart. For maintenance, you would continue to do one PRP facial quarterly.
