A Vampire Facial® is an advanced adaptation to already popular microneedling procedures. The minimally-invasive treatment uses your own blood to improve overall skin texture, diminish acne and other scars, and provide you with a naturally healthy glow. The Vampire Facial® is a safe and effective treatment that requires less downtime than traditional microneedling.

How Does Vampire Facial® Work?
Vampire Facial® works as a natural ‘reset’ creating firmer, smoother skin. Microneedling strategically places micro-punctures at precise depths to activate your body’s wound healing response. This helps you regain some much-needed collagen. Adding PRP in the Vampire Facial® further enhances collagen formation taking microneedling to the next level.
Am I A Good Candidate for Vampire Facial®?
Almost anyone is a suitable candidate for the Vampire Facial®. The procedure is safe for all skin types, and because it uses your own blood, you’re less likely to have adverse reactions to foreign substances.
You may want to consider a Vampire Facial® if you have overall problems with complexion. Both men and women with acne scars can also have long-term benefits from the procedure due to its ability to break up scar tissue bands.
Vampire Facial® makes a great preventative care treatment for patients who simply want to keep their skin looking young and fresh.
How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?*
Due to the complexity of the procedure, facial rejuvenation can take slightly longer with the Vampire Facial®. Most patients find the minimally-invasive treatment to be a fun, spa-like experience.
Vampire Facial® is done in a 3-step process. First, you’ll have a simple blood draw. Then, your skin care specialist will perform the microneedling treatment while your blood is sent to our in-office lab to isolate valuable platelets, stem cells, and other growth factors. Finally, the PRP (platelet-rich-plasma) is topically painted on for deep absorption.
What Results Will I See?*
You’ll be able to notice a healthier glow to your skin in just a few short days. The best results can be seen as collagen formation and remodeling continues to take place over the course of 4 to 6 weeks. Skin will appear firmer, color will be restored, and fine lines will gradually fade away.
Vampire Facial® provides better results with fewer treatments. Minor complexion issues can often be addressed in just one session. In most cases though, you’ll need a series of 2-3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart to achieve an optimal outcome. Maintenance treatments can be done twice-annually or as needed.
Is There Any Downtime?*
While some patients do go back to their routine immediately after their Vampire Facial® treatment, it’s not typically recommended. That’s because you’ll need to wait 12-24 hours to rinse the PRP serum so that it can continue to heal your skin. The longer you allow the PRP to soak the better.
