What is the Vampire Facial?
The next generation of our popular microneedling treatment, the Vampire Facial incorporates platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cells (ACell) to produce enhanced cosmetic results and to further improve complexion, texture, and fine lines and wrinkles. Dr. Jason Emer and our highly experienced Beverly Hills staff often combine microneedling with PRP or the Vampire Facial with lasers and radiofrequency treatments to address scars, pores, and pigmentation and to stimulate collagen production.
What is PRP?
The PRP used in our treatments is a high concentrate of protein derived from the blood; blood is drawn from the patient and placed in a tube that, once spun in a centrifuge, separates natural growth factors and stem cells from red blood cells.
In addition to helping our patients maintain a fresh, youthful appearance, PRP and stem cells can also be injected into the hair to promote stronger, thicker hair and hair regeneration; into the penis for improved erections and orgasms; and into the vagina for heightened stimulation and rejuvenation. This “Liquid Gold” solution has countless benefits, including addressing localized conditions such as acne, wrinkles, cellulite, and sun damage.
Am I a good candidate for the West Hollywood Vampire Facial?
If you struggle with acne scarring; wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of aging; hyperpigmentation; or uneven skin tone, a Vampire Facial may be able to correct these flaws, giving you back the unblemished, radiant skin of youth. The Vampire Facial is a very low-risk procedure, because the only thing being used is the patient’s own blood, so allergic reaction is virtually non-existent. The treatment is an excellent option for those who are not ready for an invasive surgery but still want to improve their skin and look as youthful as possible. Dr. Emer simply asks that you be in good physical and emotional health with realistic expectations for your results. Cosmetic procedures can help enhance your natural beauty, but they cannot make you look like a completely different person.
What can I expect from recovery?
Clients can expect the face to appear red and dry for several days after the Vampire Facial. The skin will slowly heal, revealing a beautiful new complexion and thus improving self-confidence. For about the first 3 days, avoid vigorous exercise, as well as steam rooms, saunas and spas, as excessive sweating may irritate the skin.
