Vampire Facial

Vampire Facial

The "Vampire Facial" combines skin needling with PRP therapy. During a traditional micro-needling treatment, needles create tiny punctures in the skin, which stimulates the skin to repair itself with new collagen and elastin. In a Vampire Facial, this is combined with PRP, which contains growth factors to help stimulate collagen production and cell renewal. The platelets release enzymes that attract stem cells to the area to help heal the damaged tissue. This can lead to smoother, more youthful-looking skin. However, the effectiveness of the procedure may vary depending on the individual's unique skin concerns and overall health.

The Treatment

After a thorough consultation to ensure suitability for the treatment, your blood will be drawn and your skin prepared. The blood will be centrifuged to concentrate the platelets, which are your growth producing factors. Your skin will then be micro-needled and the PRP infused into the skin. Overall, the process is minimally invasive and has minimal-moderate downtime.
