Benefits of Vampire Facial
The Vampire Facial is a very simple yet incredibly effective strategy for rejuvenating the face. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood is applied and worked into the skin with a professional micro-needling tool. The SkinPen, the first FDA approved microneedling device uses multiple incredibly small needles to create micro injuries in the skin, thus activating the collagen and elastin cascades to create new cells and rejuvenation.
The PRP is used to stimulate stem cells that exist in the face, neck, and chest. If you choose our Radio- frequency RF) microneedling treatment, we will follow up that microneedling treatment with PRP applied directly to the skin. Either way, the PRP and growth factors are able to penetrate through the microchannels and deeper into the skin. This allows more stimulation of collagen and more enhanced results. We stimulate your natural stem cells which in turn recruit new stem cells to make your skin tighter and glowy. Even scars can be softened for a beautiful, natural result!
