How Vampire Facials Work

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) + Microneedling are your answer to claiming all the benefits of plastic surgery… WITHOUT the surgery. No recovery. No expensive bills. PRP is used in facials to turn back time and reduce fine wrinkles. It is used to stimulate and regrow hair. And it has been effective in treating joint pain as well.


PRP uses the power of your own platelets to tighten your skin, regenerate damaged cells, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and blemishes. Platelets are how your body carries oxygen throughout the body. Oxygen is what helps the body heal. PRP has the ability to reinvigorate your cells, stimulate new cell growth, and tighten skin to reveal the younger you.

How the Vampire Facial works:

  1. Your skin is prepped with special numbing cream and cleansed
  2. A small amount of blood is drawn (50ml)
  3. Your blood is spun through a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the plasma. We then enhance the platelets’ effectiveness with a special skin cream to apply to the area of the skin being treated.
  4. We then use a micro-needling process to open your pores and apply the PRP cream mixture to tighten your skin instantly!

Because of the micro-needling, this amazing cream gets immediately into deep layers of your skin through the thousands of micro-needling punctures. This enables your body to rebuild the youth into your skin from the inside out.

Beyond the face, popular areas to treat include:

  • Neck
  • Scalp (stimulates hair growth)
  • Midsection (tightens skin after pregnancy)

The results are stunning- in so many cases, the rejuvenation is material. Noticeably younger-looking, more supple skin. Fewer wrinkles and fine lines. And many patients say it helps them put off botox for a number of years (which is great because we always prefer natural solutions to anti-aging).
