So, what are the “vampire” procedures all about?? “Vampire” is just a fun way to let you know we will be drawing your blood for the procedure. We use the Regens Centrifuge to separate the components of blood so we can draw off the PRP (or Platelet Rich Plasma). This is the part of our blood that contains as many as 8 different growth factors, which promote formation of new blood vessels, fatty tissue, collagen and elastin. So, what is the difference between the Vampire Facial® and the Facelift®? It’s simple really, the Vampire Facial® addresses skin tone and texture and the Vampire Facelift® addresses facial shape and volume. During the Vampire Facial®, we use a microneedling pen to create multiple tiny channels into the dermis and then PRP or Hyaluronic Acid is then applied to the area. This allows the PRP or Hyaluronic Acid to penetrate deep into the dermis. The day of and day after the procedure you can expect your skin to feel slightly tight, similar to a sun burn. You may also peel. Within the next few days your skin feels impossibly smooth, with a natural radiance and glow.
