If you’re unhappy with the tone and texture of your facial skin, Dr. Paul Tortland at New England Stem Cell Institute can restore your youthful look and improve your appearance with Vampire Facials® in a Glastonbury, CT, a revolutionary aesthetic treatment that uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and micro-needling to speed up cell replacement and renewal.

Why Choose New England Stem Cell Institute for Vampire Facials®?

What is a Vampire Facial®?

The Vampire Facial® is an innovative aesthetic treatment that uses your body’s own natural healing powers to revitalize and rejuvenate your look. The facial combines micro-needling with PRP.

Micro-needling is often called collagen induction therapy. Collagen is the protein in your skin that gives it strength, support, and elasticity. By creating microscopic tears in the surface of your skin, micro-needling stimulates your body’s repair process, which includes the creation of new, healthier skin.

PRP is a blood product the team at the New England Stem Cell Institute creates using a sample of your own blood. When applied to your skin, the healing properties in the PRP accelerate the regenerative process started by the micro-needling.

Vampire Facials® at the New England Stem Cell Institute utilize Supershot® Complete PRP, which contains an extremely high concentration of growth factors derived from your own PRP. Using it compared to regular PRP is like adding rocket fuel to the treatment, greatly accelerating the healing process to deliver an even better result. Dr. Tortland is one of the first doctors to use Supershot®, and he is currently the ONLY doctor using it for Vampire Facials®. Even though this method is unique, the PRP still comes directly from you, the patient, in order to guarantee the treatment’s safety and effectiveness.

What Problems Benefit from a Vampire Facial®?

What Can I Expect During a Vampire Facial®?

The team at New England Stem Cell Institute will perform your Vampire Facial® right in the office. We first draw a sample of blood from your arm and spin it in a centrifuge to create the PRP. To decrease your discomfort, the team applies a numbing cream to your face.

The team then applies a hyaluronic acid gel to the skin and uses micro-needling to drive the gel into the skin. The hyaluronic acid helps build and support collagen fibers in and under the skin. Next, the PRP is applied, and again micro-needling is used to help the growth factors get into the skin to begin the rejuvenation process.

You might notice some skin redness after your facial, but these side effects should disappear quickly. To protect your skin as it heals, the team at the New England Stem Cell Institute recommends you apply sunblock daily.

How Many Treatments are Needed?
