Vampire Facial with SkinPen – How Does It Work?

Everyone is going to struggle with a few imperfections over the years, but there may come a point when you feel as if you are fighting an uphill battle. You could spend thousands a year on expensive beauty supplies, but those products are only going to mask your blemishes. If you want long-term changes, then you need to unlock your body’s natural healing process. The Vampire Facial is a cutting-edge treatment that boosts the appearance of your skin with platelet-rich plasma. We can also combine that procedure with our SkinPen system for even better results. If you are tired of dealing with unwanted imperfections, then you might be the perfect candidate for non-surgical skin rejuvenation.

The Science Behind the Vampire Facial

The Vampire Facial is a form of PRP therapy, and this procedure has become exceedingly popular over the last few years. Instead of manually manipulating your skin or injecting foreign chemicals into the soft tissue, we can use your own blood to refresh and revitalize your skin. This procedure does not take long to complete, and it is one of the most minimally invasive treatments on the market. During your first Vampire Facial, we will draw a small amount of your blood. That sample is then placed in a machine that separates all of the key compounds including platelet-rich plasma.

The next step in this process is carefully injecting the platelet-rich plasma back into the skin. In the weeks following the procedure, the PRP will nourish your skin and stimulate the production of vital proteins. Vampire Facials are a great option for common blemishes such as fine lines around the mouth, crow’s feet near the eyes, old scars, and pigmentation issues.

SkinPen and Microneedling

If you want to further enhance the results of your Vampire Facial, then you might want to combine it with microneedling. The SkinPen is a handheld device that gently creates thousands of micro-channels in the skin. Your body will respond to those micro-channels by creating an abundance of healthy skin cells. Much like PRP therapy, microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that reduces the appearance of most surface blemishes. Studies have shown us that combining these two treatments can create world-class results. As an added bonus, the results often last for the long term with regular maintenance appointments.
