Vampire Facial Houston

Conveniently located to serve Houston

Vampire Facials have gained popularity in recent years among patients who want a more natural approach to facial rejuvenation. The Vampire Facial is a method that involves the use of platelet rich plasma (PRP) combined with microneedling for more comprehensive rejuvenation and results.

The Procedure

Platelet-rich plasma is a substance made from the patient’s own blood. It is obtained through the process of extracting the blood and spinning the whole blood through a centrifuge to separate the platelets and plasma from the other components of the blood. The liquid that is obtained has a higher concentration of growth cells than whole blood and can be used to accelerate the healing and repairing of tissue. Platelet Rich Plasma injections can help to stimulate collagen production as well. The procedure helps improve the appearance of scars, corrects of skin damaged by the sun, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Vampire Facial Candidates

People who are suffering from sun-damaged skin, premature wrinkles and want even toned, fresher-looking skin are suitable candidates to opt for this procedure.

How It’s Done

Blood is withdrawn from patient. It is put in a centrifuge. About ten to thirty milliliters of blood are used to get platelet-rich plasma. It takes about thirty minutes for the machine to separate plasma cells from red blood cells. Plasma is injected into the areas of the face being treated.  This can take several minutes. The procedure takes about 45 minutes to 60 minutes to complete. The concentrated platelet-rich plasma with its growth factor stimulates collagen and rejuvenates the skin. It also helps in tightening the skin. You might feel a slight sensation of the needle going through in spite of the local anesthesia.

The cosmetic surgeon will ask you to consume plenty of water one night before. He/she may advise you to refrain from drinking coffee before coming for the procedure. Eating a healthy breakfast in the morning is recommended. Blood thinning medicines are not allowed before the procedure.
