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.
"LOVE my new THREADS! Took years off my face,... and super natural looking. My friends think I just got a little extra rest. ;) Thanks to Dr. Schlyer's special numbing technique, the procedure was literally pain-free and I am such a wimp when it comes to pain. He and his whole staff are friendly, knowledgeable and caring. Thank you all for a great experience, I will definitely be back soon."- K.K. / Google / Nov 24, 2023

"Dr. Schlyer has been my Physician for many years. I crawled out bed on a Sunday morning with debilitating pain in my lower back that radiated down my left leg. That afternoon the pain had worsened to the point I went to the emergency room hoping to find the cause and some relief. After 2.5+ hours I departed with a diagnosis of Sciatica, and a script for a muscle relaxer. The following day the Team at Dr. Schlyer's office managed to find an appointment for me. Dr. Schlyer recommended a series of 4 Ozone injections 2 or 3 days apart, a means of treatment I had never heard of before my visit. I agreed, and miraculously beginning with the 1st injection the pain began to subside. The pain was gone and the range of motion restored thanks in my ! opinion to the 4 Ozone injections. Dr. Schlyer you once again found a way to help me live a better life. I have found over the years Dr. Schlyer's Team (Heather, Devon, Jackie, Emily and everyone else to be the best I have ever encountered anywhere. Go visit them! You'll be glad you did!"- S.S. / Google / Oct 24, 2022
"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
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.
