What is the Vampire Facial?
The Vampire Facial is one of the least invasive ways to restore a youthful glow to your skin. This procedure utilizes a handheld tool, which has several tiny needles in its tip, that moves across the skin to create microchannels, allowing for penetration of the PRP and stimulating a natural response for healing. It will also create new collagen to strengthen the skins’ structure and promote the production of elastin for improved skin flexibility. The Vampire Facial also increases circulation, resulting in more blood flow to create a natural glow. The treatment area is numbed with a topical cream to make the procedure comfortable.
What are the benefits of the Vampire Facial?
Choosing the Vampire Facial over other skin rejuvenation treatments has multiple benefits, including:
- Faster healing time
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Helps smooth scarring (i.e. acne scars, surgical, etc.), this procedure can also be done on the body
- Decreases sun damage
- Shrinks pore size
- Improves the effectiveness of skin care products
- Promotes collagen production when done as a series
