What is the Vampire Facial?
Renuvia Medical Center is proud to offer Vampire Facial® treatments, which help patients revive and restore their skin. To stimulate skin restoration, the Vampire Facial uses a handpiece with tiny needles. These needles make micro-injuries to the skin on your face, neck, or torso. As an additional bonus, we can apply your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to the treatment area. This helps your skin heal and enables it to grow new cells. Both of these procedures can diminsh the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, spots, and other skin issues. Without damaging the epidermis, you can greatly improve the look and feel of your skin. If you want to learn more about Vampire Facials, please schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Arthur Schlyer at his office in New Port Richey, FL.
"I have always wanted to have more fullness in my breasts but haven’t wanted to undergo the traditional augmentation surgeries mostly due to downtime and other risks. Dr Schlyer was able to remove some of the excess fat from my abdomen and flanks and then use that fat to put extra volume in my breasts. I am so happy! I went from a very small B to a full C which is exactly what I was looking for!"- Anonymous / Office Visit / Mar 16, 2022
"I am a male in my early 40’s and have been seeing Dr. Schlyer for about 6 months. When I went to see him, I was always tired, couldn’t concentrate or focus on my work, and my libido was not what it used to be. Dr. Schlyer ran some tests and found my hormones were off balance. We started treatments and what a difference; I feel so much better! Now I can get more work done during the day and have enough energy for exercise, my weight has dropped and my libido is back! Thank you to Dr. Schlyer and his awesome staff!"- D.F. / Office Visit / Feb 07, 2022
"I have been with Dr. Schlyer for 3 years and I can't believe the progress I have made being his patient. I receive the intravenous vitamins with extra glutathione and ozone treatments.

They will work with my schedule and make me feel very comfortable during my treatments."- D.D / Office Visit / Nov 17, 2021
"I have been a patient of Dr. Schlyer’s for 16 years. I have always received great care. I never liked the limitations of standard medicine. Dr. Schlyer has always been studying ways to work with our bodies that improve our health and vitality. I want to be the best me I can be and I feel that this office helps me to achieve that. All of the girls in his office are friendly and professional. Everyone is happy that you are there and always try to work with your work schedules.

"When I started seeing Dr. Schlyer and his staff in 2014, I was 400 lbs. I am beyond happy to say that I have been steady at 250 lbs. since seeing Dr. Schlyer. He is very knowledgeable and has helped me regain my health. I go to the gym and lift heavy weights and I feel great! His staff is very friendly and helpful! Thank you Dr. Schlyer!"- J.S. / Office Visit / Dec 03, 2020
A good candidate for a Vampire Facial is any patient who wants to enhance the look or feel of their skin. If you have an uneven skin tone, dry skin, rough texture, age spots, fine lines, acne, or scarring, you might benefit from a Vampire Facial. Unfortunately, this treatment is not recommended for everyone. Certain factors that might prevent you from receiving a Vampire Facial, include:
- being pregnant
- using Accutane for acne
- still having active acne
- having facial eczema or rosacea
Our Vampire Facial Techniques
Before we start your Vampire Facial, we will draw a small amount of your blood for PRP collection. We'll spin that blood in a centrifuge to separate the components of your blood. During the process, your harvested cells, platelets, and growth factors will turn into PRP. For your Vampire Facial treatment, Renuvia Medical Center uses state-of-the-art MD Pen microneedling technology to make small micro-injuries to your skin. The tiny needles penetrate your skin at the depth of 2.5mm which stimulates the creation of collagen. When the microneedling is complete, the PRP serum is placed on your skin and allowed to sink in. Once the PRP is fully absorbed, we'll clear away excess serum and clean your skin.
What to Expect
After your Vampire Facial, you might experience mild side effects such as swelling, bruising, or redness. We recommend that you avoid wearing makeup, using exfoliating skin cleansers, and submerging in pools for approximately three days. These types of activities can expose the skin to strong chemicals and bacteria which may lead to negative symptoms. You should also avoid sun exposure or use protective measures when going outdoors. As the skin starts to repair and heal itself, patients should see their final results within a few weeks.
A Vampire Facial can benefit people who want to enhance the look and texture of their skin. It can make skin look smoother, younger, firmer, and more luminous. We invite patients to learn more about this therapy by speaking with a skilled member of our skincare team or by scheduling a consultation at Renuvia Medical Center in New Port Richey, FL.
