Vampire Facial® Plus is our innovative treatment developed at The Face Place. It combines e-Dermastamp skin needling (EDS) with Hydrating HA solution (HA) and Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP). EDS has been clinically proven to induce skin rejuvenation with collagen repair. The EDS creates tiny micro channels in the skin to allow penetration of the PRP and HA into the ideal layer of the skin to maximise your regeneration and repair. The HA boosts and hydrates the skin where it most needs it, improves recovery and also provides a platform for the platelets to work more effectively. Results are more than you see with the individual treatments. Skin becomes clearer, thicker, softer and more luminous.
You must have a PRP Consultation before proceeding with your first treatment – regardless of if you have had this treatment elsewhere. This ensures you are fully educated and informed before proceeding with treatment. We are a best-practice clinic and consistently deliver optimal results by placing paramount importance on education and informed consent.
Your skin will have to be prepped with medical-grade skincare, at least 4 weeks prior, BEFORE having the treatment. Once prepped, you will need to have a PRP Consultation, where your skin condition will be assessed. If your skin is not prepped we suggest having a skin assessment with our Medical Skin Therapists. These skin experts will be able to prescribe the appropriate medical-grade skincare to you in order to help get your skin in optimal condition, which will ensure you get the best results from your Vampire Facial Plus treatment.
Results include reduced pore size, bouncier skin and an improvement of the fine ‘crepey’ skin around the eyes. The improvement is gradual and results are cumulative, so, while people have seen great results with just one treatment, having a course of 3-4 treatments will give you the best outcome.
No. The skin recovers extremely quickly from Needling and PRP as we are not damaging the skin, but perforating the capillaries which sit in deeper layers of the skin. The channels created by the EDS needling device are healed within the hour because of the extremely fine nature of the needles used. The very essence of Collagen Induction Therapy is not to macerate the skin but to trigger signals to stimulate the growth factor cascade that will eventually lay down new collagen.
• Skin redness will vary between individuals; it may last around 12-24 hours. As the skin heals, the redness will resolve.
• A small number of people may experience a temporary increase of pigmentation of the skin surface (especially if the skin is not protected from the sun’s rays). This usually resolves over the next few weeks and may be treated with lightening agents.
• Bruising may occur as a result of treatment. It is recommended to stop blood thinning medication such as aspirin, anti-inflammatories (eg Voltaren and Nurofen), fish oil and green tea, 1 – 2 weeks before treatment.
A course of 3-4 treatments over a 4-6 month period, suggesting a top up with a single treatment once or twice a year.
Yes. Vampire Facial Plus is a unique treatment, inspired by the great success The Face Place team was experiencing with PRP (platelet-rich plasma), a treatment that renews and regenerates tissues using the power of your own platelets.
PRP has been used effectively for over 20 years to help repair tendon and ligament problems, and to assist top-level athletes, such as Tiger Woods, recover from injury.
At The Face Place, we have used PRP for over 15 years to improve skin texture, thickness and luminosity; for nearly a decade to reverse hair loss, and we are global trainers for the Vampire Techniques. The Vampire Facial Plus is our unique twist on the standard Vampire Facial.
