Vampire Facial® Procedure Explained…

Do You Show These Three Signs of Aging?

  • Skin color becomes more gray because of less blood flow.
  • Fine vertical lines around the mouth.
  • Skin texture  becomes less smooth. As a result, the person looks "worn", or "tired" or "droopy."  The lively, rosy hue (seen plainly in playing children of every skin color and in young adults) fades to a dull gray.

Why the Vampire?
With many ways to rejuvenate the face, why look for a better way?

  • Skin creams and facial peels by a skilled aesthetician can be very helpful but sometimes are just not strong enough to rejuvenate the tissue adequately.
  • Retin A and other prescription medications (like hydraquinone) also improve texture and should be carefully prescribed in a way that gives benefit without adverse effects.  Still, the results can be slow and less than what's needed.
  • Cosmetic surgery can remove excess skin and make the person appear younger. But, a surgical facelift can be more than what's needed for some people (especially when lots of extra skin is not the main problem).
  • Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers (like Juvederm and Restylane) lift the skin away from the bone to restore youthful volume and shape, but HA fillers can cause problems near the eye. Also, the injector of HA fillers can chase a wrinkle and create a shape that looks foreign to the person's face or even foreign to this planet. The HA fillers do little to improve skin tone and texture.

Here’s how it’s done…

Three Steps of the Vampire Facial® Procedure

  • The physician isolates growth factors from the patient's blood.  
  • The provider uses a micro-needling device to create multiple micro-punctures --both driving the isolated growth factors into the skin and creating stimulus for tightening and rejuvenation of the collagen of the face.
  • The provider paints the growth factors onto the micro-punctures so that the growth factors soak into the tissue for further stimulation of tightening and skin rejuvenation.

The skin tightens, and glows with color, and scaring softens for a beautiful younger and very natural result.

Step 1: Isolating the Magic from Your Blood

The physician draws your blood from your arm (just like getting a blood test done). Using a centrifuge, the physician isolates platelets from that blood (platelet-rich plasma or PRP)--all within about 30 minutes in the office!

Step 2: Micro-Needling

First, the physician draws about 30 cc's of blood.

Using a centrifuge, the physician isolates platelets from that blood (platelet-rich plasma or PRP)

The provider “activates” those platelets to cause the release from the platelets of at least 8 growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue. 

These growth factors work like magic to cause increased collagen and new blood flow. To rejuvenate new skin, these growth factors must be put back into your face. 

Step 3: Coating and Soaking Your Face with Blood-Derived Growth Factors

These growth factors then activate multipotent stem cells  already in the skin (tricking them into "thinking" there's been an injury and new younger tissue should generated). The multipotent stem cells then develop into new collagen, new blood vessels, and new fatty tissue trying to "repair" the skin that was never injured!

The result…younger-appearing skin!
The effects of the procedure improve for 2 to 3 months and last for at least 1 to 2 years!
