Don’t let the name scare you away. A Vampire Facial is a fantastic option for boosting the health and radiance of your skin, and it’s not nearly as gruesome as you may think. At The Secret Orchid in Hillsborough Township, NJ, board-certified physician Dr. Carolyn DeLucia performs the revolutionary Vampire Facial to treat a wide variety of skin concerns and give patients the smoother, healthier, more youthful-looking complexion they desire. Read on to learn more about the benefits of a Vampire Facial, and find out if this celebrity-backed treatment may be the skin rejuvenation solution you’ve been searching for.

What is a Vampire Facial?

The Vampire Facial is a two-step skin rejuvenation treatment that combines the benefits of microneedling and platelet-rich plasma. During a Vampire Facial at The Secret Orchid, patients will first have a small tube of blood drawn from their arms. The blood will then be placed in a centrifuge – a machine that spins the blood to isolate certain components. For a Vampire Facial, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is separated and prepared into a serum.

In the meantime, patients will relax in one of our serene treatment rooms for the microneedling portion of the treatment. This involves numbing the skin with a topical anesthetic cream and rolling a handpiece over the skin’s surface to create tiny pinpoint injuries. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing process.

Once the microneedling treatment has been completed, the PRP serum is applied to the skin’s surface, infusing powerful regenerative properties deep beneath the surface. This boosts cell regeneration and turnover, collagen production, and other processes to enhance the health and appearance of the skin.

What does a Vampire Facial do for your skin?

The Vampire Facial is extremely versatile and can benefit virtually anyone, and it addresses a wide variety of skin concerns all at once. These may include age-related skin changes, sun-induced damage, and others. Some of the most common complaints that can be addressed with a Vampire Facial in Hillsborough Township, NJ include:

  • Fine line and wrinkles
  • Mild skin laxity
  • Enlarged pores
  • Scaly skin
  • Rough skin texture
  • Dark spots
  • Sun spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Dry or oily skin
  • Dull skin
  • Acne scarring

How often can you get a Vampire Facial?

To start with, Vampire Facials (also known as PRP facials) should be performed several times over the course of 2 – 3 months. This jump-starts the skin rejuvenation process and provides improvements to build upon. After an initial round of Vampire Facials, patients can consistently maintain their results by scheduling regular Vampire Facials about 2 – 4 times per year. Between Vampire Facials, Dr. DeLucia can recommend other treatments – like radiofrequency (RF) skin resurfacing – to keep your complexion in a constant state of improvement. With a customized skin rejuvenation routine designed just for you, the skin of your dreams may finally be possible.
