A Vampire Facial includes microneedling and the application of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which we extract from your own blood. This highly popular treatment conveys the anti-aging, restorative benefits of PRP into the skin so it can reach the areas that need it.

How Does a Vampire Facial Work?

A Vampire Facial combines two procedures. The first is microneedling, which penetrates the skin with many tiny needles to disrupt the underlying layers. This causes the surrounding areas of the skin to activate healing factors, and it causes the body to produce new collagen fibers that support and firm the skin.

Renew MD also uses radiofrequency (RF) energy as part of the microneedling process, delivering energy to the underlying tissue to stimulate even more collagen production. The needles deliver this energy deeper into the skin than a surface treatment can, so the new collagen structure develops from a deeper level.

The second part of the procedure involves the application of PRP. This plasma comes from your own blood, which we draw and separate while we prepare you for your treatment. This plasma, with all of its healing factors and platelets, enters the skin through the microneedling areas and puts the body’s natural healing into a higher gear. 

The PRP stimulates the skin to heal itself faster and to build more new collagen. As a result, skin looks healthier and more youthful. As with other microneedling treatments, multiple sessions provide the best results. PRP during each session helps decrease healing time so redness and swelling disappear sooner.

What Results Will I See from a Vampire Facial?

After your microneedling with RF and PRP treatment, your skin may be slightly red and swollen. The PRP helps this heal faster so you will see the results of your treatment sooner. You will need to avoid sun exposure and any harsh chemicals or strenuous activity for a few days but can otherwise return to your usual routine. 

Age spots, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, and fine lines have faded or disappeared, and over the next few weeks you will see enlarged pores appear to shrink and wrinkles fade as your new, healthy, active collagen rebuilds the support structure that keeps skin looking young and firm. 

The Vampire Facial lasts for one to two years. By combining three different techniques to rejuvenate and renew your skin, we can provide you with results that you can see within days and continue to see as time goes on. 

Am I a Candidate for a Vampire Facial?

You are probably a good candidate for this procedure as long as you are generally healthy. If you have active acne, rosacea, or eczema, or if you have a history of problems with scars or wound healing, let your provider know. 

“Place is exceptionally clean and the staff are friendly. They seem to really keep up with the latest technologies, services, and training. The atmosphere is peaceful and the mall is a walk away. They have a huge new sauna and steam shower.” *
