Vampire Facial or PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy is a skin rejuvenation treatment. It is often called a “Vampire Facial" because it uses the patient’s own blood. Platelets found in plasma are removed from a sample of the patient’s blood, then injected into areas of the face to rejuvenate your skin.
The plasma, when injected into specific areas of the skin, acts as a booster that promotes collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and thus will help naturally smooth and tighten the skin.
The treatment is non-invasive and patients can resume normal activity almost immediately after the procedure.
Blood is collected from you in 1-2 specially designed tubes which are then centrifuged for 5-10 minutes.
During centrifugation, a patented gel within the tubes isolates PRP from other unrequired cells within the blood.

This treatment involves the use of an ‘aerating’ MicroPen for microneedling or collagen induction therapy.
The MicroPen is used to gently aerate the skin, and then a topical cream is applied serums or skincare products.
The tiny micro-perforations made by the MicroPen allow for easier absorption of serum, product or even your own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP); hence the name Vampire Facial. The MicroPen has proven extremely useful in the treatment of skin scarring, acne, sun damage and a host of other skin care procedures.
VAMPIRE FACIAL FAQ
How does a Vampire Facial work?
The Vampire Facial applies PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) topically to the skin’s surface. The skin is then treated with a micro-needling device, which allows the PRP to penetrate and sink into your skin effectively.
Are results permanent?
When will you see the results?
The goal of PRP skin rejuvenation therapy is to improve skin tone and texture, tighten skin, and soften lines and pores. Results begin to show one (1) to two (2) weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve with time.
Are there any side effects?
There are not that many side effects associated with the Vampire facelift. There are minor side effects that go away quickly after the procedure. The most common side effects include itchy feeling after treatment, swelling, bruising, burning or discoloration.
