Vampire Facial

What is the Vampire Facial?

The Vampire Facial is a revolutionary beauty treatment that can restore your glowing, youthful look. The facial combines microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to stimulate your skin to heal itself from within to reduce the signs of aging.

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is an aesthetic treatment that uses a special beauty tool equipped with thin tiny needles. When applied to your skin, these tiny needles create micro-puntures in the surface of your skin that stimulates your skin’s healing properties. It specifically triggers your skin to up its production of elastin and collagen, which are the proteins that give your skin its youthful fresh glow.

Microneedling by itself is a popular and effective aesthetic treatment, but when combined with PRP, it takes the beauty treatment to the next level.

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an advanced medical treatment that merges cutting-edge medical technology with your body’s own natural ability to heal itself. PRP is a blood product Dr. Kochert creates from a sample of your own blood that concentrates the healing platelets and growth factors in your blood.

When applied to your skin after microneedling, the healing properties in the PRP accelerate your skin’s rebuilding process to give you amazing results.

What can I expect during a Vampire Facial?

Dr. Kochert begins your Vampire Facial by first taking a sample of blood from your arm and placing it in a centrifuge to create your PRP. She then applies the microneedling tool to the specified areas of your skin and then coats your skin with your PRP. You can then relax and let the power of your own body’s ability to heal itself take over.

Your face may be a bit red after treatment, similar to what you would expect after a sunburn, but these side effects should disappear within a day or two.

You should notice an improvement in your skin soon after your Vampire Facial, with continued improvements over the next 2-3 months. With good skin care practices, including the regular use of sunblock, your skin should maintain its youthful look for a year or more.

The Vampire Facial is a form of regenerative medicine that harnesses your body’s own natural healing properties to help slow down the effects of aging. To learn more about the Vampire Facial, call Dr. Carolyn Kochert today or book an appointment online.
