VAMPIRE FACIALS IN HOUSTON, TX
Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) is a natural healing growth factor harnessed from your own body that improves the skin’s complexion and reverses the signs of aging. Depending on the level of need, our PRF treatments for the face will help create a youthful glow and smooth your skin.
What's the Science Behind Vampire Facials?
Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) facials, or Vampire Facials, leverage the body’s natural healing mechanisms to rejuvenate the skin. The science behind this treatment is rooted in the biology of platelets and their role in wound healing and tissue renewal. Here’s a closer look at the science involved:
Concentration of Growth Factors:
Platelets are rich in growth factors and cytokines, which are essential for cellular repair and renewal. When PRF is applied to the skin, these growth factors stimulate cellular processes like collagen production, tissue rejuvenation, and blood vessel formation, enhancing the skin’s natural ability to heal and renew itself.
One of the unique aspects of Vampire Facials is that they are autologous, meaning the PPF is derived from the patient’s own blood. This significantly eliminates the risk of allergic reactions or adverse effects, making it a safe treatment option.
Synergy with Microneedling:
Vampire facials incorporate microneedling to enhance the penetration of PRF into the skin. Microneedling creates tiny wounds in the treatment area, which not only induce collagen production but also serve as channels for the PRF to penetrate deeper layers of the skin. This synergistic effect amplifies the benefits of both treatments.
PRF Injections for Facial Volume:
PRF can be injected directly into specific areas of the face to restore volume and vitality. When injected, the Platelet-Rich Fibrin releases growth factors that stimulate collagen production and attract stem cells to the treatment area. This dual-action process can lead to increased volume and improved skin quality over time.

Our Vampire Facial is a minimally invasive treatment that uses your own naturally derived growth factors topically into your skin using microneedling. This process is rich in nutrients to help promote cell renewal and new collagen growth. Your skin will look firmer, and the tone and texture will be improved, leaving a youthful glow.
In addition to topical application, a PRF Facelift can restore volume and suppleness to areas of depletion. When injected, the Platelet-Rich Fibrin releases growth factors that stimulate collagen production and attract stem cells to the treatment area. This dual-action process can lead to increased volume and improved skin quality over time. PRF injections are particularly effective for treating areas of lost volume due to aging or other factors, such as the cheeks, under-eye regions, and nasolabial folds.
During your initial consultation with your Arike specialist, you will be able to discuss your concerns, goals, possible risks, and benefits of the procedure. At this time, we will be able to determine your candidacy and provide you with the next steps toward your PRF journey at Arike.
We begin by drawing a small amount of your blood and separating the nutrient-rich tissue in a special centrifuge. This process allows us to use the naturally derived product directly into the skin. A topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment area so you are made to feel comfortable during the procedure. The nutrient-rich platelets and growth factors help to rejuvenate your skin.
Both our Vampire Facial and Facelift promote skin renewal, rejuvenation, and collagen stimulation, which continues to improve months after your initial treatment. Results from our PRF Facelift can last up to one year or longer and up to 6 months to a year with our PRF Facial.
Yes! This treatment is very safe. This is a minimally invasive procedure using the Platelet-Rich Fibrin derived from your own blood, which removes any risk of allergic reaction. There may be some mild swelling and bruising that will subside in a few days.
