Vampire Facial:

Microneedling  (Rejuvenation of Skin Texture, Acne Scars)

Using multiple micro needles, the skin is vertically penetrated at high speed. Microneedling creates millions of fine channels to be created in the skin.  These channels can effectively carry PRP or other topical, like Hyaloronic Acid serum, into the skin and feed the cells found in the dermis and basal layer of the epidermis.

Micro-punctures in the skin heal by the processes to repair the physical damage, resulting in an increased production of normal woven collagen, similar to fractional laser treatments, but without the side effects and downtime of laser.

Rejuvepen is more effective than microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and dermal rollers. Disposable cartridges eliminate risk of cross-contamination, and the adjustable needle depth allows for a treatment that is fully tailored to your individual needs. It is even suitable and safe to use in delicate and hard to reach areas such as those around the eyes, lips and nose.

Microneedling can be used to treat the appearance of: Aged and sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, vertical lip lines, skin tightening and rejuvenation, enlarged pores, stretch marks, scars (acne, surgical, burns), alopecia/receding hair (in conjunction with PRP), sun damage, and much more.


Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is concentrated from your blood, providing plasma that is rich in platelets and growth factors and that stimulate a stem cell response. This stem cell response improves the skin’s integrity by stimulating the growth of new collagen and blood vessels to repair and revitalize damaged skin. PRP treatments can rejuvenate the skin to address fine lines, uneven skin tone, scarring, acne, hyperpigmentation and can help in slowing down and reversing the signs of aging.


PRP Facial Rejuvenation uses the PRP in conjunction with the Rejuvepen MicroPen. The MicroPen is an Epidermal Micro-Exfoliation device used to stimulate the tissue and improve the appearance of the skin. The procedure is performed in a safe and precise manner utilizing the Turbo Safety Cartridge, a sterile micro-exfoliation component. The procedure is typically completed in 30-60 minutes. The treatment time can vary based on the required treatment and anatomical site being treated.


Number of PRP treatments recommended:

Rejuvenation      4-6 treatments               every 4 weeks

Acne Scaring      6 treatments                   every 6 weeks

Stretch Marks     4-8 treatments               every 4-6 weeks

You may see the results after the first treatment, however, lasting and more significant results will become visible after 4 to 6 treatments.  The skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments.

Topical anesthetic cream is applied 30 minutes before the procedure. This will make the treatments virtually pain-free! The high-speed motor causes the needle penetration to occur very quickly which means it will feel more like a sandpaper sensation than needles. You may have facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. You can apply make up on day 2 post treatment. Wear sunscreen 30 SPF or higher to protect your new skin when exposed to the sun.




Vampire Facelift (PRP Facelift)

A Platelet Rich Plasma facelift, or PRP facelift, is also called a Dracula Facelift. A person undergoing this cosmetic procedure has his or her blood components injected into the desired area of their face for a youthful glow and appearance. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Bar Refaeli have openly endorsed this practice, as it is minimally invasive and has been deemed fit for people in their 30s.*

*Individual results may vary.

What Is PRP?

Before PRP became a component of cosmetic surgery, it was used medicinally in various branches of science like urology, neurosurgery, sports medicine, and ophthalmology. It is also called autologous rejuvenation therapy. It harnesses the natural healing ability of our body that repairs the wear and tear of our tissue over time.*

A small amount of blood, usually 10 to 20 cc, is taken from the patient and then centrifuged to break into its components. One such component is oxygen-rich platelet plasma, which is injected directly into the affected area to pump up the padding of the skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.*

*Individual results may vary.

How Does It Work?

Platelets are known to be rich in growth-promoting proteins that help in healing damaged tissue. Once platelets are injected into the affected area, they release growth proteins that stimulate the adjoining cells to enhance the tautness of skin by increasing the cell volume underneath the epidermis.* This may or may be the ideal treatment for you, as individual patients will have varied medical histories.*

*Individual results may vary.

Why PRP Treatment?

As we age, the process of cell growth becomes slow and declines, leading to a faded appearance and a rough, uneven, and patchy skin texture. PRP therapy encourages the fibroblast cells to produce more collagen, which is responsible for the firmness in skin.*

Facial contours start to become harsh and prominent as skin begins to sag and loses its firmness during the aging process. PRP incites pre-adipocyte cells*, which are responsible for filling out gaunt facial contours.

*Individual results may vary.

Who Should Have It?

Technically, anyone who has medical conditions like ligament injury, skin lesions, muscle tissue damage, and open wounds can use platelet rich plasma therapy for treatment. In cosmetic surgery, it is requested by people in their 30s for treatment of early signs of aging.

It must be noted that PRP cannot replace an actual invasive facelift. A thorough skin examination must be conducted to see if PRP will get you the desired results or not.

Pre- and Post-Procedure

On the day of the PRP facelift procedure, pictures are taken before the therapy. Your face will be anesthetized before the procedure, and after the procedure is done, an ice pack will be applied to reduce bruises.


You must get this treatment from a reputed clinic and doctor. It may be a good idea to check their labs in advance to ensure that they are safe, hygienic, and equipped to conduct the procedure. This step is important because contaminated blood can cause infection and breakdown of skin.
