VAMPIRE FACIAL

What is the Vampire Facial?

The Vampire Facial  is a non surgical procedure that is customized for every patient.  It utilizes microneedling with PRP (platelet rich plasma) which stimulates the skin to facilitate skin rejuvenation designed to restore a youthful appearance to the face.

Microneedling uses very small needles to create micro channels within the localized area of the skin.  The purpose of the treatment is to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.  PRP is injected into the skin to allow a more complete penetration into the layers of skin with a more even dispersion.  The Vampire Facial refers to the use of microneedling with PRP on the facial region, but the combination of treatments can also be applied to the rest of the body.
