WHAT IS A VAMPIRE FACIAL?
A vampire facial, or the dermapen PRP (platelet rich plasma) is a facial that uses a patient’s blood to trick the body into healing and repairing itself.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Once the blood is extracted from the patient, it is placed in a centrifuge, or a spinning process, that separates the plasma that contains growth factors and stems cells from the blood that doesn’t. The plasma separated is then injected back into the skin using the dermapen!
The dermapen is a micro-needling device that contains tiny needles that are used to puncture tiny holes into the skin. The platelets are used in combination with the dermapen in order to be injected back into the skin.

BENEFITS OF THE VAMPIRE FACIAL
INCREASES COLLAGEN PRODUCTION
Part of the aging process is decreased collagen production. Lack of collagen is one of the biggest reasons we begin to have wrinkles and fine lines, as well as the loss of elasticity. The only way you can increase collagen production is by doing something that stimulates it, such as the vampire facial!
Collagen is increased when there is a trauma to the skin cells. As soon as the skin in penetrated, it creates a sense of urgency in the skin. The sense of urgency makes your body produce new, strong, and healthier collagen! This new production of collagen in combination with the platelets will results in tighter and more rejuvenated skin.
TIGHTER SKIN AND REDUCED FINE LINES AND WRINKLES
One of the most common reasons why people get vampire facials is to tighten the skin and to improve fine lines and wrinkles. As stated previously, loss of collagen production is one of the causes of loss of elasticity on the face and fine lines and wrinkles.
Luckily for you, the vampire facial helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and tightens the skin. This is all possible because collagen production is promoted with the vampire facial. Collagen plumps up the skin making it so that the skin tightens and firms.
IMPROVES SKIN TONE AND TEXTURE
Believe it or not the vampire facial helps with improving acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks, and even hyperpigmentation! Scars are created when the dermis (deep layer of the skin) is damaged. Collagen is what heals the damaged skin, but as a result it leaves a scar.
How can we diminish the appearance of a scar? We dimmish it by creating a sense of urgency in the skin in order to promote new collagen production. The new collagen will repair the scar tissue and improve it overall! With only one session, you will be astonished at the differences!
