PRP Vampire Facial
What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP)?
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) can be applied topically during the micro-needling procedure, and it can also injected into the skin right after the treatment to greatly enhance the micro-needling benefits. This complete treatment is also known as the Vampire Facial.
PRP comes from your own blood and contains high concentrations of platelets and growth factors that help your tissue heal and grow new cells. PRP is obtained by drawing a small amount of blood from your arm into a sterile tube. The tube is centrifuged to separate your plasma, the portion of the blood that we use for the treatment, from your red and white blood cells, which settle to the bottom of the tube.
Historically, PRP has been primarily used in orthopedic medicine, dentistry and reconstructive surgery to help speed recovery. Now it’s used in aesthetic medicine to help damaged, aging skin grow new collagen and elastin for beautiful, youthful results.

What Are the Benefits of Microneedling With PRP (Vamp Facial)?
When PRP is used with microneedling, it penetrates your skin through the tiny channels the microneedles create. The PRP supercharges the microneedling benefits. PRP also addresses under-eye puffiness and dark circles to give you a more youthful, well-rested appearance. Since PRP is derived from your own blood, the side effects are virtually eliminated. It restores elasticity, tone and texture.
For the best results, you can continue to use one ampoule per day for 7 days, followed by one ampoule weekly for 3 weeks in the evening (for a total of 10 ampoules in each kit).
Am I A Good Candidate for Microneedling?
Microneedling is a very safe and effective treatment to improve your skin, regardless of skin type. The depth of the microneedle can be adjusted to meet your individual needs and goals. Due to its low-risk profile, microneedling is a good option for people who aren’t good candidates for lasers, such as those prone to hyperpigmentation. Microneedling is also very powerful for treating scars and stretchmarks on the face and body.

How Is Micro-Needling Performed?
First, we apply a strong topical numbing cream to the treatment area for optimal comfort. We then insert a new, sterile cartridge containing 12 microneedles into the MicroPen and set the depth based on your skin’s unique needs.
Before, during and after the microneedling procedure, we apply your prepared PRP solution or a specialty serum to the treatment area to ensure it gets fully absorbed.
What Does Microneedling Feel Like?
Since we apply a strong topical numbing cream prior to the treatment, discomfort is significantly lessened. Microneedling feels like little pin pricks.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
We allow the topical numbing to work for 30-45 minutes, depending on your sensitivity. The microneedling treatment takes about 15-20 minutes for the face. Afterwards, we apply a soothing peptide mask on the treated skin for about 10 minutes.
Should you opt to add PRP to your microneedling treatment, your blood will be drawn from your arm and centrifuged while you’re numbing; we will use a centrifuge to separate the plasma inject or dermal infuse into the desired areas and applied topically for improved results.
What Is the Downtime After Microneedling?
The downtime is minimal with only 1-3 days of mild redness, dryness and light peeling, depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment. Using our post-treatment kit will help speed your recovery.
When Will I See Results After the Microneedling Treatment?
You’ll notice an immediate glow and the tone and texture of your skin will continue to improve over the next few weeks. Collagen production will continue over the next six months.
How Many Treatments Are Needed for Optimal Results?
We recommend a series of at least three treatments about four to six weeks apart. A yearly maintenance treatment will help maintain your results.
