The Vampire Facial™ procedure uses the same blood-derived growth factors used in The Vampire FaceLift procedure. The difference is that with the Vampire Facial we apply the PRP topically. With the Vampire Facial the physician injects the PRP into the face and combines it with a hyaluronic acid filler (like Restylane or Juvederm).
How does a Vampire Facial work?
The Vampire Facial is a designer procedure in which your own blood specimen is used to re-energize cells, boost collagen production and stimulate growth factor production. A tube of your blood is drawn and then processed to harvest the platelet rich plasma (PRP). We apply a thin layer of numbing cream to your face to ensure patient comfort during the procedure. The PRP is applied topically followed by Micro-Needling of the skin with a Micro-Pen, a process in which the skin is perforated with near microscopic holes, which allows for a transdermal delivery of the PRP. The growth factors in the PRP treatments re-energize cells to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving the skin’s tone and texture. Following the Micro-Needling, a second layer of PRP is applied allowing for maximum benefit. While this treatment has more social downtime than the Vampire Face-Lift, patients are pleased to see that the overall tone, texture and quality of their skin is greatly improved. Patients can expect at least 2 days of social downtime. In both of these procedures, the material must be used in the proper way or the results will not be very good.
