A Vampire Facial, or PRP facial, combines microneedling (also known as collagen-induction therapy) with topical application of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood. 

This skin rejuvenation treatment creates an overall improvement to skin texture and tone. It can also reduce scars (including acne scars), correct hyperpigmentation, tighten lax skin, smooth fine lines, and minimize the appearance of large pores. 

Bruising and inflammation are the most common side effects and tend improve within days following the treatment. It is important to avoid sun exposure, rigorous exercise and saunas for at least 72 hours following the treatment. Retin-A, Retinols, and Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s) should be stopped for a week following the treatment and a week prior.8
