Vampire Facial – PRP

Our Vampire Facials (PRP Microneedling) Services in Covington, LA

The Vampire Facial is the best-kept secret in Hollywood; it was created by Dr. Charles Runels, who made it popular by performing the procedure on Kim Kardashian. The Rejuvapen is the microneedling pen of choice for Dr. Runels and other leading physicians and used right here in Covington at Dr. Jill Gibson office.

What is a Vampire Facial?

A vampire facial is a medical procedure that is performed by our providers. This treatment combines microneedling and your blood’s platelet-rich plasma (PRP).  At your appointment, the nurse will take one vile of your blood and then spin it in a machine to separate your plasma from your blood.

This plasma will then be collected in small syringes to use for your vampire facial.  We call the spun plasma “liquid gold”.   It is applied before and after the derma needles pass over your skin creating microscopic punctures.

What are the benefits?

  • PRP helps boost your skin’s cell turnover and stimulate stem cells
  • increased collagen and elastin production
  • improves texture and tone
  • reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, and crepey (thinning) skin
  • reduction in sunspots, age spots, and improved hyperpigmentation
  • reduction of acne scars or facial scars from injury
  • tighter, firmer skin

Sounds pretty amazing right?

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure is booked as an hour-long appointment.

Does it hurt?

Numbing cream is definitely needed during microneedling.  The needles can be adjusted for 0.5mm to 2.0mm in depth.  Obviously, the deeper the needles are inserted into the skin has more benefit.  It is a very painful procedure without numbing cream, so I would not recommend trying to be a hero here.  If you have low pain tolerance, then the medical-grade, topical cream provided by our providers can be applied twice before the microneedling to ensure your skin is totally numb.

What is the healing time?

Healing time is typically 48 hours.  During this time it’s important to treat your face with care and not apply any makeup… as you will look pretty scary!  I likened it to a little facial road rash.  So try and book this appointment when you know that you will have a couple of days at home to recover.  Warm water, gentle cleansers, and face creams can be applied.

How many times are recommended?

Three vampire facials are the recommended number for the most optimal results.  These can be completed with as little as 1 month in between treatments of stretched out over a period of time.  You should see results with even one treatment.

What Is the Rejuvapen NXT?

The Rejuvapen NXT is the next generation micro-needling device that has been cleared by the FDA. It stimulates the body to repair scar damage through its wound-healing system. The skin’s structure remains unchanged, but you see dramatic differences in its appearance. It employs a closed system, so it is safer and more hygienic than other treatments. As with any med-spa service, the results of this treatment may vary.
