Vampire Facial (Microneedling with PRP)
We often pair this treatment with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). PRP is the part of our blood that has all the growth factors, platelets, cytokines, and chemokines – all important parts of our healing and collagen stimulation response. We apply PRP to the surface of the skin before, during, and after the microneedling treatment. When we pair the two, we can double our results after each treatment! Learn more about PRP on our PRP injection page.
The treatment itself begins with up to 1 hour of an anesthetic cream. We will then clean the skin and apply a thin layer of PRP before starting the treatment. The microneedling portion is done in sections. We will complete the face and neck in about 30-45 minutes. The skin will be red and mildly bloody when the treatment is finished. We ask that you avoid applying products or washing them for at least 1 hour. Sun protection is key, so a hat is recommended!

Tip 1: The more hydrated you are for your appointment, the easier it will be for us to get an adequate amount of blood and PRP!
Tip 2: Bring a hat to your treatment as we cannot apply SPF immediately after treatment!
Tip 3: This treatment is the gold standard for acne scarring!
