The Vampire Facial is a procedure that involves withdrawing a patient’s blood, processing it to isolate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP), then applying the PRP back into the the skin via microneedling to erase wrinkles and create a more youthful look.
The Vampire Facial has become more popular in recent years thanks to celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Bar Refaeli who swear by this procedure to keep their skin in top shape & glowing.
How a Vampire Facial works
There are three steps to a Skinny Beach Vampire facial. First, your licensed aesthetician will withdraw your blood and insert it into our centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) — this is what contains your own human growth factors. Next, an attendant will perform a microneedling procedure, creating a series of tiny punctures in the skin that stimulate the skin’s natural healing process to produce healthier, younger looking skin. Finally, the PRP blood is reintroduced to the skin, seeping into the tiny series of holes in the skin, further accelerating the tissue re-generation process.
1. Withdraw blood and isolate PRP
2. Microneedling of the epidermis (top layer of the skin)
3 . Coat and soak your face with PRP
You can expect to see results from your Vampire Facial within a few days. The effects of the procedure improve over 2-3 months and lasts for a year.

Is the Vampire Facial Safe?
Yes! Despite its spooky name, a Vampire Facial is completely safe.
A Vampire Facial is minimally invasive and only a tiny amount of blood is drawn during the procedure, via your arm. The microneedling is also safe, simple and effective; the skin will be numbed prior to the Vampire Facial and most patients describe microneedling as the feeling of ‘sitting next to a warm campfire.’ Typically important factors (i.e. those taken into account during laser therapy) such as age or skin tone don’t matter. Skinny Beach’s Vampire Facial is not a surgical procedure, but it produces surgical results.
