“I can say with the utmost confidence that the results show a remarkable improvement when implementing Dr. Runels’ Vampire® techniques. Fine lines improve and diminish, texture improves, and the general color of the face improves. The Vampire Facial® is also exceptional in the treatment of acne scars as well as stretchmarks.” -Debbie Russell
“Remember, it is very important to consult with a certified provider of the Vampire Facial® who uses an FDA-approved sterile system to obtain Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), and who is supervised by a Vampire® certified physician.
