Vampire Facial

What is a Vampire Facial?

A "Vampire Facial" is the combination treatment of microneedling with platelet-rich plasma. Microneedling and PRP are the perfect duo!

 

While micro-traumas are made to the outer layers of the skin to stimulate collagen growth/healing with microneedling, PRP is then applied to the skin to accelerate and enhance the healing process more, resulting in skin renewal!

Different Concerns Treated with Vampire Facial

  • Facial Rejuvenation

  • Collagen Stimulation
