The Vampire Facial™ - Our clinic's newest holistic modality, which uses your body's own Platelet Rich Plasma to boost collagen production, brighten your overall skin tone, get rid of minor acne scars, fade hyperpigmentation, and tighten your skin!
You may have seen the photos of Kim Kardashian’s Vampire Facial™ make its way around the internet. While she is not exactly the poster girl for holistic health, she definitely got it right with the Vampire Facial!
Here at Zuza’s Way, our mission is to better your health and this treatment is truly a holistic modality which harnesses your body's own ability to heal.
One of the ‘jobs’ of the platelets in your blood is to promote collagen production, cell growth, and muscle repair. My patients with a history of chemotherapy may remember that during treatment, when platelets are low, you need to be careful about excessive bleeding, this is because platelets are responsible for that repair process that happens after an injury!
During a Vampire Facial®, we combine Microneedling with many teeny tiny injections of your own Platelet Rich Plasma. Where Microneedling creates ‘micro injuries,’ triggering your body to start the healing process, the Platelet Rich Plasma we inject simultaneously provides our bodies with the boost of its own cells it needs to do so in an exceptionally effective manner!

How do you collect my plasma?
First we collect some of your blood through a vein in your arm. At Zuza’s way, we use the Emcyte Pure PRP® system. It extracts the highest concentrations of platelets on the market while simultaneously removing 99% of red blood cells (RBC’s) which can hinder the regenerative process. Many other PRP systems fall short of delivering a final injectable that can be considered platelet-rich. Unlike many other systems, Emcyte is a completely closed system throughout all steps of the processing that meets the highest sterility standards.
At Zuza’s Way, we stand by our mission to heal. As such, we work with only the best, medical grade equipment, and a practitioner will complete the procedure - not a nurse.
The entire procedure will take 60 minutes, although most of this is dedicated to obtaining your Platelet Rich Plasma. The actual treatment time itself is about 20 minutes, and you’ll be able to return to normal activity immediately - just hold off on vigorous exercise and activities such as trampoline jumping for about a week.
How long will it take to see results?
At the end of your Vampire Facial®, your growth factors are already calling to your stem cells to begin the process of generating brand new tissue! The body requires a minimum of three months to generate new collagen, tissue, nerve endings, and blood vessels, however results are long term, as your body is literally rejuvenating - this is not a temporary filler! Many choose to start with a series of three treatments, spaced one month apart, for best results & then continue with yearly treatments to stay on top of continued aging. During your first consultation, you’ll talk with our providers about setting realistic treatment expectations, and your provider will recommend the appropriate approach for your goals.
Am I A Good Candidate?
Thanks to the minimal nature of side effects, Vampire Facials® work well for almost anyone! The reason is that the substances used in the procedure come from the patients themselves, so there is absolutely no chance for them to get allergic reactions while undergoing the procedure. Some light bruising or soreness is common, and will resolve on its own over the course of a few days. Call us now!
What is the difference between Facial Rejuvenation Injections and a Vampire Facial®?
In the case of Facial Rejuvenation Injections, we specifically target and concentrate the PRP injections on specific facial ‘problem areas’, and in the case of a Vampire Facial® the treatment, which includes microneedling, is applied over the entire facial area.
One Vampire Facial® at Zuza’s Way: $600
(Recommended) A series of three Vampire Facials®, one month apart: $1500.
