What is a PRP (Vampire) Facial?
Platelet Rich Plasma, also known as PRP uses the your body’s own growth factors to stimulate tissue and collagen production, dramatically enhancing your skin’s appearance. Commonly known as the “vampire facial”, this in demand treatment takes facial rejuvenation to a new level. Using platelet-rich plasma from your own blood, we help to increase your skin’s elasticity, fight wrinkles by stimulating collagen and help diminish scarring.
How does a PRP (Vampire) Facial work?
Our highly trained nurse practitioners will draw a few vials of your blood. We then spin your blood in a centrifuge to separate the plasma and platelets from the red blood cells. Using our unique microneedling device, we create microchannels that will serve as tiny gateways for the PRP to flow into your skin. When Platelet-rich plasma is applied, it releases at least eight essential growth factors and signaling proteins into the skin. These work to repair tissue and blood vessels, promote the growth of new tissue, and boost healthy cell production. The results are typically seen in about 4-6 weeks as collagen takes a time to grow.
Hair Restoration Treatments
In addition, PRP Therapy can be used to treat hair loss and thinning. The growth factors from your PRP may improve the overall condition of the scalp, may rejuvenate damaged hair follicles, and can stimulate generation of new hair follicles which may help to stimulate new hair growth.

What to expect from a PRP Facial treatment?
We take special care to make you comfortable throughout the process. We apply a topical anesthetic prior to creating the microchannels to infuse the PRP. The procedure is comfortable and done in about 20-30 minutes. We will go over all aftercare protocols and design a treatment plan for best results. We recommend a series of these with one of our at home care kits to give you long lasting benefits.
PRP Facial Aftercare
This results driven procedure requires little to no downtime immediately after. Most clients have mild to moderate redness for about 24 hours. It is best to avoid makeup during this time as well. Using a gentle facial cleanser and hydrating moisturizers after the 24 hr period is recommended. We offer a great at home regime which you can purchase the day of your treatment.
For hair restoration applications, shampoo and condition your scalp daily starting the first evening or the next morning after PRP.
