Vampire Facial in Southlake | What is it?

So let’s get down to the basics. Does a Vampire Facial come with bats and a coffin? The truth is, this facial is named after its use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which comes from your own blood!

A Vampire Facial is the topical application of PRP following a microwounding treatment like microneedling. The PRP infuses into the microchannels created by the treatment, soaking deep into the skin for optimal benefits. 

The process is pretty simple—and no, fangs are not involved. You’ll come into the office for a simple blood draw performed by one of our highly certified providers. Then, we’ll spin your blood in a centrifuge to separate out the plasma. Once we’ve got that ready to go, we’ll perform the microneedling treatment and apply the PRP directly onto the skin. Then, you’ll be ready to take on your day!

Benefits of PRP | Why get a Vampire Facial in Southlake?

Platelet rich plasma is well known to help with cell regeneration and healing, and it offers a unique benefit to medical aesthetics in that it aids in the production of collagen. Collagen is a key factor in keeping your skin plump, healthy, smooth, and youthful!

A Vampire Facial combines the power of microneedling, which also induces collagen growth, with the healing magic of PRP to leave your skin looking 10 years younger—perhaps another reason it’s named after our immortal friends. 

The use of PRP is widespread. Here at the clinic, we also use PRP for under eye hollows and bags, hair restoration, acne scarring, and more!

Is PRP safe?

Unlike the somewhat scary namesake, the Vampire Facial and other applications with PRP are considered to be extremely safe. Not only are there virtually zero side effects from PRP injections or topical application, but there’s no risk of biocompatibility issues or an allergic reaction (since we use your own blood for the treatments).
