A vampire facial combines microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to boost the production of collagen, adding structure and fullness to your face. This powerful combination of treatments will give you fuller, softer, and more luminous skin with just a single treatment.
Dr. Channell offers this exclusive treatment to improve the appearance of:
The PRP solution used in the vampire facial boosts the production of collagen, which adds additional structure to your face. It also has hydration and antioxidant properties that help you achieve a youthful, radiant glow.
Dr. Channell draws a sample of your blood and places it in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets. Platelets are rich in growth factor proteins, which recruit stem cells and aid in tissue regeneration. They also heal damaged or diseased tissue and promote healthy blood flow.
After recombining the platelets from the centrifuge with your blood plasma, Dr. Channell strategically injects this PRP solution into the areas of the face where you want to receive treatment. The needle is tiny and causes little to no discomfort; however, Dr. Channell may provide a numbing cream before administering the injections.
The vampire facial also involves microneedling. During this treatment, Dr. Channell uses a roller containing dozens of tiny needles to create small puncture wounds in the surface of your skin. These micro-injuries trigger your bodies natural healing response, promoting new collagen production and increasing the effectiveness of the PRP injections.
The entire treatment takes roughly 60-90 minutes, and you should notice a healthy glow along with an increase in volume after just a few days. You’ll typically see optimal results after 3-5 weeks.
You can expect some skin redness for 12-24 hours following the treatment, but this should subside naturally as your skin heals. Other side effects are rare but may include swelling or tenderness at the injection sites.
