The Vampire Facial
The Vampire Facial® is a procedure developed for individuals who want healthy, youthful, and rejuvenated skin, without the time and expense of surgery. The Vampire Facial® is an innovative non-surgical procedure which uses platelet rich plasma (PRP) extracted from the patient’s own blood. The Vampire Facial® represents a noninvasive method to smoothing out lines and wrinkles within the face, resulting in a more natural, younger appearing skin.
The Vampire Facial® is an outpatient procedure, performed on site at Revive Aesthetic and Wellness. The procedure itself takes about 30 minutes with results often times visible the same day. Continual benefits of the Vampire Facial® skin regeneration can be seen up to a year or longer after the procedure.
How Does the Vampire Facial Work?
The Vampire Facial® is performed in an office setting and typically takes
approximately 30 to 40 minutes to perform. The Vampire Facial® procedure begins with your Revive physician performing a simple blood draw from you arm. Your provider will then process your blood through a device called a centrifuge to isolate platelets and growth factors from the other blood components to create a highly concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP). They will then perform a process called
micro-needling on your face using your PRP.
Micro-needling is a process that involves using a device called a dermaroller which contains tiny needles that is rolled over the skin to painlessly puncture hundreds of tiny holes in the skin, stimulating collagen production. The PRP is absorbed into the skin through the tiny holes created by the microneedling process. This stimulates the body’s natural healing and repair capabilities, providing increased blood flow and tissue regeneration to the skin in the face. The result is a smoother, brighter, younger looking face without the use of any artificial components.
