While it may sound like something out of a horror movie, the “Vampire Facial” is actually based on solid science and rapidly evolving technology that leverages your skin’s ability to rejuvenate and relax deep wrinkles, acne, and blotches without surgery. Best of all, this cutting edge treatment has been tested to be safe and effective, and can keep improving your skin for months afterward. At RevMD in Knoxville Vampire Facial patients couldn't ask for better!
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 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 cells that exist in the face, neck, and chest. If you choose our Radiofrequency (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 cells which in turn recruit new cells to make your skin tighter and glowy. Even scars can be softened for a beautiful, natural result!

“My skin has never looked better! I was nervous about the needles, but I barely felt it and I swear I positively glowed after!”

Before you begin, photographs will be taken to ensure there’s accurate documentation of results and progress. A numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area to minimize discomfort. Most patients are comfortable during the procedure. Your blood will be drawn and spun in a special centrifuge to separate the PRP from the red blood cells. Once the skin has been prepared appropriately, the microneedling begins.
A topical numbing cream is applied for 20-30 minutes prior to the procedure to minimize discomfort.
It is common to take a day or two of downtime after this treatment, depending on how invasive the microdermabrasion was on your skin. Post-treatment your skin will be a bit red, almost like a sunburn. Post-procedure sunscreen is highly recommended. You are discouraged from applying and wearing makeup in the first few days after your facial.
With our Vampire Facial Knoxville patients will see that the effects on skin texture and tightening are apparent within 3 weeks, but will continue to see results from the collagen formation for an additional 3 months.
The results vary, but with proper skin care and sun protection, you should continue to enjoy the benefits of this amazing procedure for up to 18 months. Speak with your provider or any member of our helpful staff for recommendations regarding a skin care routine and medical grade sun protection. Taking good care of your skin will help enhance and maintain your new healthy glow.
While both procedures use PRP, the Vampire Facial does not include fillers and uses microneedling rather than injections. The Vampire Facial can shrink pore size, help with acne scarring and pigmentation, and could be used to treat stretch marks. If you want to focus on face shape and contouring, the Vampire Facelift is probably a better choice. The two procedures can have great results when you use them together.
