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.

"When you are looking for getting your youth back, Dr. Schlyer has all the tools available to get you to a beautiful you again. I am so glad I found Dr. Schlyer as he is the best in his field. All my life I had my 11s between my eyebrows. Dr. Schlyer got that taken care of for me and I am amazed with the result! He not only took care of my 11s, but also smoothed out my forehead, and now I do not look angry any longer. He also noted that I could use some fillers to help with my smile lines. I did not even know that was an option! I cannot wait to get that done and look 10 to 15 years younger. Thank you Dr. Schlyer! Annie G"- A.G. / Google / Nov 30, 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, loose skin, wrinkles, acne, or scarring, you might benefit from a Vampire Facial. Patients can also use this treatment to help fight the effects of sun damage, which may cause their skin to feel rough or become hyperpigmented. 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, a team member will draw a small amount of your blood for PRP collection. We'll take that blood to our lab and use 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 microneedling technology to make small micro-injuries to your skin. The tiny needles will not harm your skin but will instead help stimulate 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 several 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.
