Vampire Facial/Collagen Induction Therapy
Micropen Facial Rejuvenation
Collagen induction therapy is an increasingly popular anti-aging skin treatment. It works by promoting deep skin regeneration to enhance overall texture, tone, and skin health. The gentle micro-needling helps to break down scar tissue and release dead skin cells from the surface while the platelets stimulate collagen production and the regeneration of new tissues to achieve smooth, radiating skin.
This is a no down time treatment that requires no surgery with no adverse effects! Immediately after the treatment, the skin will have a mild pink glow for up to 48 hours.

A small blood draw is done in clinic for the purpose of extracting the platelets to be used for the facial. The skin is cleansed with our Teoxane Cleanser to remove any make-up and impurities on the skin. Once the skin has been cleaned, a topical anesthetic is applied to make sure the treatment is relaxing and pain free.
The solution is applied to the surface of the skin and is gently driven into the dermal layer of the skin using the Eclipse micro-needling device to achieve youthful and healthy looking skin.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
Some patients may only require one treatment to achieve the desired results.
However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced one month apart. For more severe skin conditions such as acne, or scarring, 4-6 treatments may be required.
To maintain the anti-aging affects of the treatment, a yearly or biannual treatment is encouraged.
What areas of the body can I treat?
The vampire facial can be used on most parts of the body such as the face, neck, decollete, stomach, abdomen, glutes, and limbs. The face and decollete are the most common areas targeted.
Does This Treatment Replace Botox or Dermal Filler?
Unfortunately, this treatment does not replace Botox of dermal filler. There may be some decrease in fine lines and wrinkles but its main purpose is for skin texture and tone. Skin quality is the target for this treatment.
What does it feel like?
The treatment should be comfortable and painless. Most patients feel very little or just the mild vibration from the microneedling.
Nearing the end of the treatment, the skin may start to feel tighter from the treatment.
What To Expect After The Treatment?
Right after the treatment, the skin will feel tight and may feel warm. There will also be a mild pink to red glow to the skin that will remain for 24-48 hours. Depending on how fast your body heals will determine how fast the pink glow will reduce. Some patient also experience some light flaking of the skin between 48-72 hours after the treatment. Once the pink glow and flaking goes away, the new glowing skin will appear.Book an Appointment
