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 facelift procedure which combines a mixture of natural fillers and platelet rich plasma (PRP) extracted from the patient’s own blood that is injected into specific areas of the patient’s face. The Vampire Facial® represents a non-invasive 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 Michigan Pain Consultants. 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?
is The Vampire Facial® is performed in an office setting and typically takes approximately 30 to 40 minutes to perform. The Vampire Facial® procedure begins your provider performing a process called micro-needling on the facial. 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. Next, your provider will perform a simple blood draw from your 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 created highly a concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP).
Next, your provider applies a natural FDA approved filler (like Juvederm ® or Restylane® ) to add a natural collagen scaffold based on your facial structure and the mathematics of beauty. Finally, your MPC physician will apply the highly concentrated PRP directly onto the skin. The PRP is absorbed into the skin through the tiny holes created by the micro-needling process. This stimulates the body’s natural healing and repair capabilities, providing increased blood flow and tissue regeneration to the skin in the facial area. The result is a smoother, brighter, younger looking face without the use of any artificial components.
Candidates for The Vampire Facial®
The Vampire Facial® is not for everyone. People with more advanced signs of aging may benefit more from surgical treatment and/or Botox applications.
