Vampire Facials of DallasWhat Are Vampire Facials?

One of the latest trends in skin care, the vampire facial, is getting a lot of buzz from celebrities who are impressed with the undeniable results.  It may look a little scary, but Dallas vampire facials are actually quite effective at giving the skin a fresher, more youthful appearance.

What is it?

A vampire facial is a combination of microdermabrasion or microneedling, and platelet-rich plasma, or PRP.  PRP is the platelets that are found in the serum of our blood. Platelets contain high levels of growth factors.  Growth factors help stimulate cell turnover when applied directly to the skin. The vampire facial uses your own blood to help promote the healthy regeneration of skin cells.  It also encourages collagen production, elastin production as well as hydrating the skin and supplying antioxidant properties.

What’s the process?

When you go in for your vampire facial, your skin care doctor in Dallas will explain the 3-step process.  First, a blood draw is taken from the patient. This is not typically painful, except for a small pinch from the needle.  The platelets will be isolated from the blood using a centrifuge. Next, the doctor will use microneedling or microdermabrasion to prepare the skin to absorb the PRP.  The final step involves applying the PRP all over the face. The skin is more open to absorb the platelets, allowing for the best possible outcome. The growth factors of the PRP activate the stem cells which develop new collagen, blood vessels and fatty tissue to repair the skin, improving the quality of the skin.  There is usually a 1-2 day down time. Your skin will be red similar to a sunburn. Your doctor will recommend that you use sunscreen to protect your fresh skin and avoid using makeup for the first few days.

What are the benefits?

The benefits of vampire facials in Dallas are what makes the procedure so popular.  It’s relatively painless. It diminishes premature wrinkles, fine lines and sun spots.  It evens out the skin tone, leaving it refreshed, looking better than ever.

Tattoo Removal of DallasHow Does Tattoo Removal Work?

Tattoo removal is performed using a laser beam to break up the ink particles of the tattoo.  Tattoo ink is made up of metals such as lead, copper, manganese, and mercury. When a tattoo is first completed, the body’s natural response is to send white blood cells to attack the tattoo and remove the particles by absorbing them.  But the tattoo ink particles are often too big for the white blood cells, making it difficult for the body to remove them, and that is why tattoos fade some over time, but remain permanent.


Tattoo removal is performed using a laser treatment called a Picosure.  Dallas tattoo removal doctors use this laser treatment because it is extremely effective. Unlike other treatments, it is considered the safest because the high intensity light beam releases the heat in picoseconds which protects the skin from burning.  The laser breaks up the ink particles using blasts of heats to force the particles to rip apart. Once the particles have broken into smaller pieces, the body can them absorb them and the tattoo fades away.


Picosure tattoo removal in Dallas has greater results, fewer treatments and faster recovery time.  Although it can be painful, the pain is temporary as the laser fires so quickly with the Picosure. This process can take several treatments to remove the whole tattoo.  Darker pigments respond the best to this laser treatment, although Picosure gets great results with more difficult tattoo colors as well.


It is vital that the treatment be performed by a qualified tattoo removal doctor in Dallas.  If you would like more information about tattoo removal in Dallas, contact Lakewood Aesthetics.  Our staff is highly skilled in Picosure, the safest and most effective tattoo removal treatment.
