The Vampire Facial has been the hot trend with celebrities recently, but the benefits of the procedure are far more than just the latest Hollywood fad. A Vampire Facial – Morpheus8 micro-needling with Platelet-Rich Plasma – boasts impressive results that leave your skin plumper, tighter, smoother, and glowing.
A Vampire Facial is a cosmetic procedure that involves drawing blood from your arm, separating the platelets using a centrifuge, and then injecting the serum back into your face using micro-needles ranging in size from .5 to 2.5 millimeters. We use only your own blood, NOT somebody else’s. When the platelet-rich plasma is reintroduced under the skin, cell turnover is stimulated, and your body naturally produces more collagen and elastin. Once the Morpheus8 micro-needling is completed, PRP is applied to your skin topically to facilitate healing. The results are a plumper, tighter, and smoother complexion.
The Morpheus8 micro-needling with Platelet-Rich Plasma is relatively painless and is done in the office. We draw your blood and then separate the plasma by using a centrifuge. Before treatment begins, a numbing cream is applied to the treatment area to manage discomfort. The micro-needles are very small and only go skin-deep, so the procedure feels like tiny pinpricks that most women tolerate well. After the procedure you will notice dry, red, sensitive skin, much like a light sunburn for the first few days after treatment.
Most everyone is a candidate for micro-needling with PRP, however, if you have a history of blood disease or clotting or bleeding issues, you may not be a candidate. Unlike laser treatments, this can be done on all skin types and colors!
