Several years ago, the world took notice of the Vampire facial when Kim Kardashian posted pictures of herself undergoing this procedure. Dr. Cohen has been helping patients achieve their goals of facial rejuvenation through this transformative PRP-based procedure ever since. The Vampire facial utilizes the natural tissue repair and healing ability of your own body to reduce facial imperfections and take years off your face. The Vampire Facial was invented by Charles Runels, M.D..
Are You a Candidate for a Vampire Facial?
The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections used in the Vampire facial treatment will smooth out facial wrinkles and fine lines, reduce enlarged pores, treat acne scars, and add volume to your mid-face and cheeks. Additional fillers such as Hyaluronic Acids may be needed as PRP by itself does not provide large volume replacement. If you are looking for a non-surgical treatment to reduce your signs of facial aging, improve hyperpigmentation, repair sun damage, restore a radiant skin tone and smooth texture, and make your facial skin appear more youthful inside out, you should choose a Vampire facial.
How does a Vampire Facial Work?
Dr. Cohen will draw a small amount of your own blood and run it through an advanced centrifugal process to separate the PRP growth factors. Prior to injecting the PRP, Dr. Cohen will use a special microneedling device to create very small channels through the upper protective layers of your skin. These channels will allow the PRP to penetrate more deeply into the skin and reach the proper level to best stimulate collagen production and remodeling.These growth factors combined with other bioactive proteins will then be injected at precise locations and skin depths in your face. Additionally, the PRP will be “Painted” on to your face in the areas that have been micro needled and massaged into the created channels.The PRP will trigger your facial skin’s self-repair mechanism to gradually enhance the health of your facial tissue from within.
In addition to utilizing the power of PRP growth factors, the Vampire facial process will also stimulate the production of new collagen fibers in your skin. This will help make your skin more elastic, supple, and volumized over time. Results of the Vampire facial will continue to improve over several weeks and months as the fresh collagen helps build and support your facial skin structure. You can expect long-lasting and natural looking outcomes with just one quick, in-office Vampire facial treatment with Dr. Cohen.
