Microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has become popular for reducing common skin irregularities like fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and texture issues. This procedure at Jade Phoenix Aesthetic Medicine involves creating micro-injuries in the skin to stimulate new collagen production. PRP contains growth factors that accelerate the healing process and promote new cell turnover.
Dr. Thomas Lee is proud to offer this combination treatment (also known as a Vampire Facial® to residents of Irvine, CA. Call now to learn more about microneedling with PRP and how we target specific skin issues.
What is a Vampire Facial?
The term “Vampire Facial” refers to a unique combination of cutting-edge microneedling technology and PRP therapy. Platelet-rich plasma is made from a sample of your blood and contains concentrated growth factors. These growth factors help improve skin tone and texture.
Jade Phoenix Aesthetic Medicine begins each session with a thorough consultation, where we discuss your needs and aesthetic goals. Dr. Lee may ask about your medical history and perform a quick exam. We then create a treatment plan designed to address your specific skin irregularities.
What issues are resolved with microneedling and PRP?
Age and sun damage are just two of the many factors that influence our skin. Our bodies create less collagen as we age, leading to visible fine lines in areas like the forehead, around the eyes, and near the mouth. Constant sun exposure also causes uneven pigmentation in the form of age spots.
Poor skin texture is also attributed to different causes. For example, acne blemishes leave behind pitted scars that are hard to manage through basic beauty products. Rough skin may also be the result of smoking or years of UV damage.
No matter the reason for your skin irregularities, a Vampire Facial in Irvine, CA, addresses these concerns and more by stimulating new collagen growth. The result is firmer and youthful-looking skin with a more even tone. Jade Phoenix Aesthetic Medicine can perform microneedling with PRP in areas that make you feel embarrassed or self-conscious.
How do Vampire Facials compare to other treatments?
PRP therapy offers many advantages over traditional microneedling alone. First, the PRP used in your Vampire Facial comes from your own blood, so there is no risk of allergic reaction or infection. Second, the growth factors in PRP enhance and speed up the healing process. Finally, the results of a Vampire Facial tend to last longer because new collagen is being produced at a faster rate.
Why choose Jade Phoenix Aesthetic Medicine?

Jade Phoenix Aesthetic Medicine uses a double spin technique to ensure 4x+ platelet concentration – the level needed to achieve optimum results. Rest assured, our team is dedicated to providing the best possible care with every microneedling session.
