Recent medical advances have discovered that platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be derived from the patient's own blood to help with healing. In cosmetic dermatology, the healing powers of PRP have been combined with microneedling to help stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin in the skin. Sometimes known as the Vampire Facial or Vampire Facelift, ZO Skin Centre® in Orange County performs microneedling to create tiny channels in the skin that allow the PRP serum to reach deeper layers of the skin for a unique facial treatment that can improve the tone and texture of the complexion. The increased production of nutrients also leads to long-term skin rejuvenation that improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, skin damage, scars, and other concerns. Schedule a consultation or treatment at our Laguna Beach or Newport Beach office to discover the benefits of microneedling with PRP.

"A few months ago I got treated for my cellulite with the Cellfina Treatment. I was treated by Dr. Bashey in Beverly Hills and could not be happier with my results. Being in my forties I honestly do not have the time for creams with my baby running around. Cellfina was a very quick treatment and long lasting that gave me the desired results I had no idea were possible. I chose to get this treatment well before bathing suit season, but honestly there was very little downtime and the recovery was quick.There was bruising for a month or so after, but once that went away I was able to see the extent of the results. I would highly recommend this treatment to anyone who has mild to severe dimpling and cellulite. It was an immediate mood boost and overall I feel like my confidence after having a kid is restored."- M.E. / Yelp / Apr 10, 2018
"Voluma Filler for my Face instead of Botox! AMAZING Results I was not Expecting! I recently went to see Dr. Bashey in Laguna Beach as the holidays are approaching and needed to get some Botox. I have received botox in the past and am familiar with it. I am in my mid-fifties and figured this was what I definitely needed. Dr. Bashey didn't just look at me and give me what I came in for, he sat down and really looked at my face, then went over different areas that could use help. Dr. Bashey is articulate and ended up injecting filler into my upper cheek area as well as Xeomon into my forehead. The filler ended up very naturally lifting my cheeks and face and also will last me he said up to 18 months or longer. I am extremely happy with my results and very thankful he took time with me to evaluate my needs. Dr. Bashey is extremely polite and made me feel comfortable with consulting before doing anything. I did not feel pressured and not much pain! I am looking forward to seeing him in the near furture for a for a chemical peel :)Thanks!"- N.H. / Yelp / Dec 19, 2017

Microneedling with PRP can benefit all skin tones and types who want to improve the health and appearance of their complexion. Since PRP serum is made from your own blood, there is less chance of a reaction compared to other facial treatments, which makes it a great option if you have sensitive skin. The Vampire Facial helps to improve not only visible skin concerns (lines, wrinkles, scars, pores, hyperpigmentation, and more), it also strengthens the health of the skin for long-term benefits.
What to expect
The Vampire Facial takes about 90 minutes after your skin consultation and evaluation is complete. Your technician will take a small amount of blood from your arm, which will be spun in a centrifuge to create the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) serum. Once the PRP serum is prepared, the technician will pass the microneedling handpiece over the skin and then apply the PRP evenly over the face. Your face may feel slightly irritated and will look pink for 1 – 3 days after the procedure. You may see some improvement immediately, but your complexion will continue to improve over 2 – 3 months as your skin re-builds and strengthens itself.
