The Vampire Facial is a transformative treatment that combines microneedling with the power of platelet rich plasma (PRP) to improve skin texture, pores, acne, scarring and complexion. PRP is a concentrated source of platelets, growth factors and cytokines found naturally in your own body that stimulate collagen development and soft tissue remodeling. Through microneedling, we’re able to deliver PRP right to the skin to kickstart these processes and improve your overall appearance. The Vampire Facial has become a patient favorite at Seiler Skin for its minimal discomfort, short post-treatment downtime and incredible results.
WHAT DOES THE VAMPIRE FACIAL TREAT?
The Vampire Facial treats a number of concerns, including:
- Fine lines
- Skin texture
- Pore size
- Acne scars
- Tone and complexion (i.e., color and clarity)
- Volume loss
- Surgical and traumatic scars
- Stretch marks
THE SEILER SKIN DIFFERENCE
Dr. Seiler is well-versed in the Vampire Facial and other treatments specializing in PRP — in fact, he actually trained directly under Dr. Charles Runels, the creator of the Vampire procedures. After years of administering Vampire treatments himself, Dr. Seiler is now regarded as a leader in the treatments and trains fellow practitioners across the country and around the world.
Another key difference at Seiler Skin is the technology we use. Technology has greatly improved over the years, allowing for higher platelet recovery, and we constantly revisit the devices we use to ensure they’re the best out there. Dr. Seiler has done extensive research to ensure the microneedling device we use — SkinPen™ — is the highest quality available and yields the best results. Our team is also trained in the proper technique for drawing your blood and separating out the PRP through our state-of-the-art centrifuges. Not all PRP-obtaining systems are the same, but at Seiler Skin, we constantly revisit the technology we use to make sure it’s the latest and greatest available.
As with every treatment, Dr. Seiler and our team consult with patients to assess their concerns and determine a treatment plan tailored to their needs. We want to ensure that you are getting the best results possible from your experience at our practice, and are always looking for new ways to improve your overall skin health.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR THE VAMPIRE FACIAL?
- Younger Patients (18 to 30-Years Old)
Patients in this category may want to address certain concerns, such as scarring/acne, or simply maintain healthy, youthful-looking skin. The Vampire Facial is a great treatment to receive on an annual/semi-annual basis for this group.
- Middle-Aged Patients (30 to 55-years old)
Patients in this category may begin noticing visible signs of aging. The Vampire Facial is a great alternative to more intensive laser treatments and can help maintain healthy looking skin for longer.
- Older Patients (55 to 75-years old)
Patients in this category may benefit from this treatment in conjunction with other treatments they are already receiving. A series of Vampire Facials is a great solution for addressing signs of aging and other skin concerns.
WHAT IS THE VAMPIRE FACIAL PROCESS LIKE?
Our team begins by applying a medical-grade numbing cream prior to treatment to minimize any discomfort. We then draw a small amount of blood, which is processed in an FDA-approved centrifuge to separate out the PRP. After creating small channels in the skin with a microneedling device, we then topically apply the PRP so it can penetrate the skin and deliver the desired results. Unlike most other practices, we also will add PRP injections to the treatment to stimulate deeper tissue in areas such as under the eyes.
Downtime following treatment is fairly short, with most patients experiencing mild redness for just 12-24 hours following the Vampire Facial. People tend to notice a more glowing, healthy complexion within days after treatment. We typically recommend a series of three Vampire Facials to see the best outcome possible, with results peaking at the six to 12-month mark.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE VAMPIRE FACIAL AND VAMPIRE FACELIFT?
The Vampire Facial uses medical microneedling with topically applied PRP to treat concerns more visible on the surface of the skin. The Vampire Facelift, on other hand, uses fillers and injected PRP throughout the face to lift and volumize the face. You can learn more about the Vampire Facelift here.
