Vampire Facial Treatments with Microneedling and PRP

Dr. Ghislaine Robert is trained and certified in both the Vampire Facial® and Vampire Lift®. Both highly effective, natural facial treatments harnessing the power of platelet rich plasma (PRP) designed stimulate new collagen, improve skin tone, fill wrinkles (Vampire Lift) and improve skin texture. The Vampire Facial® will result in plumper, smoother skin that keeps improving over time as new collagen develops. The Vampire Lift® will fill lines and plump up the skin using all-natural filler derived from your own blood or fat.

The Vampire Facial® can be performed in conjunction with the Vampire Lift®, if required for optimal results.

During the Vampire Facial®, Dr. Robert uses the PRP (platelets) harvested from your own blood in the treatment area.  The procedure will take approximately 1 hour (longer if you choose to add micronized fat cells or PPP filler with the Vampire Lift®).

Vampire Facial® and Lift Procedure:

  1. First your blood will be drawn to extract the platelets. We use an FDA approved centrifuge machine to concentrate the blood after the blood draw. The quality of the machine is very important in the extraction of platelets and outcome of the procedure.
  2. Topical anesthesia will be applied to minimize any discomfort you may feel during Vampire Facial®
  3. If you choose to add micronized fat to your procedure, Dr. Robert will perform a mini-liposuction to collect and harvest your fat tissue.
  4. The FDA approved Microneedling Skinpen Precision™ device will be used to create channels that will allow the PRP to go through the skin barrier and promote new collagen production
  5. The PRP is applied topically to the face during the microneedling
  6. The PRP can also be injected as a filler for fine wrinkles, e.g. nasolabial folds and under eye lines or Dr. Robert will use PPP gel (Poor Plasma Platelets) or fat cells for deeper wrinkles and/or to add volume and create a more youthful looking face.

Post Procedure:

You may experience redness in the general treated area for 2 to 4 days and there is possibility of bruising of the injection sites. Makeup and or any topical creams or lotions should not be applied for 4hrs post procedure unless advised by a medical professional.

Vampire Facial® Results:

There may be some immediate results, but you can expect to see steady improvements over time which could be 6 months and beyond as your body produces more collagen. The results will be ongoing.

Best results are achieved with 2 or 3 Vampire Facial® treatments spaced about 2 months apart however some patients may require only 1 treatment especially if you choose to add fat cells.

For acne scars, up to 6 to 8 treatments may be required at 6-week intervals.

Maintenance treatments are recommended every 1 to 2 years for treatments other than acne scars.

The Vampire Facial® procedure takes place while you are under local anesthesia.

Every step of the Vampire Facial® procedure is NOT covered by any health insurance so you are completely responsible for the cost.

Pre and post procedure information will be given as well as nutritional information and a list of recommended supplements and skin products.

What is PRP?

PRP also known as Platelet Rich Plasma is derived from the patient’s own blood. Creation of PRP is simple, painless, and conveniently done during a clinic visit. The entire process of drawing blood to solution preparation only takes approximately 25-30 minutes. A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient, just like a routine blood test. Once the blood is drawn it is then placed into a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins the blood at high speeds to separate the blood into red blood cells and concentrated platelets. Once the blood is separated the concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) is ready to be used in the treatment process. These platelets are rich in growth and healing factors.

Does the Procedure Hurt?

Prior to the procedure a numbing cream is applied to the face. This is usually adequate for pain management. If discomfort is still felt PRO-NOX Nitrous Oxide gas can also be given. We also use a cold device to numb the skin just prior to microneedling or injections.

Will I lose a lot of Blood?

Approximately 3 tablespoons of blood will be drawn at the start of the treatment.

Is the Procedure Performed by a Medical Doctor?

The microneedling will be performed by our Medical Dr, Dr. Robert or our Registered Nurse Kiera. Only qualified medical professionals perform our procedures, we do not have aestheticians or medical aestheticians of any kind. Injectables (Vampire Lift) are only performed by our Medical Doctor, Dr. Robert.

Is the Procedure Safe?

At Sparclaine MD we NEVER reuse microneedling needles. Every patient is given a new sterile microneedling head for their procedure. As an added safety measure all our patients are tested for blood transmitted diseases prior the Microneedling procedure. The equipment including the microneedling SkinPen and centrifuge we use is FDA approved. Everyone involved in our proceedures is a qualified medical professional and has undergone the appropriate training and certifications.
