Introducing the “Vampire Facial” for a Younger Look

April 22, 2020

If you’re looking for a quick and effective way to reinvigorate your appearance, non-surgical facial rejuvenation is the way to go. At the office of Dermatology for the Family, we offer a minimally-invasive platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) therapy to help boost collagen growth for smoother, fresher looking skin.

This state-of-the-art treatment, also known as the “vampire facial,” uses platelet-rich plasma, or PRP — a processed substance made from your own blood — that can stimulate collagen growth and facial rejuvenation. It’s a minimally invasive in-office procedure that involves extracting a small amount of your blood that is then processed in a centrifuge (a machine that spins it at a very high speed). The machine turns your extracted blood into a healing substance rich with growth proteins and platelets that is then applied to the face.

PRP injections are often used in conjunction with a therapy called micro-needling to help you achieve optimal facial rejuvenation results. Micro-needling is a minimally invasive skin procedure that involves the use of a device containing small, fine needles to create microscopic skin injuries that stimulate collagen growth and give you smoother, healthier looking skin. You’ll experience better facial firmness, a reduction in scars and smaller pores.

Results of PRP therapy for facial rejuvenation can vary depending on a variety of factors, including your age or skin type. To achieve optimal results, we may recommend multiple treatment sessions in addition to follow-up appointments to monitor your results.
