An innovation from The Dermatology and Laser Group, The Vampire Laser™ combines two powerful procedures to achieve total skin rejuvenation for the face, neck, chest, or any other part of the body.
The Vampire Laser is a two part procedure starting with a PicoSure Laser Focus Treatment (the most technologically advanced skin rejuvenation laser in the world), followed immediately by painless microneedling of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) from your own body to supply your skin with an abundance of growth factors to stimulate new skin and collagen formation. This innovative procedure takes 30 minutes for the entire face and produces amazing results that surpass the benefits of older technologies, with far less downtime- typically only a few hours!
TOTAL SKIN REJUVENATION (wrinkles, acne scars, discoloration).
SAFE and 100% NATURAL.
ONLY A FEW HOURS OF MILD REDNESS.
Steps Involved in Procedure:
PicoSure Focus Laser
The most technologically advanced skin rejuvenation laser available today, this skin revitalization laser produces new collagen and elastin while also eliminating unwanted pigment.
Much less downtime- only several hours of redness vs. several days or weeks with older lasers. Its the perfect treatment when you have no time for downtime!
The secret to the laser is SKIN CELL ACTIVATION. The laser energy 100% naturally causes release of proteins from skin cells, which are then detected by surrounding cells to trigger a healing response—a response that produces new collagen and elastin for healthier-looking skin.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
PRP is obtained by drawing a small amount of your blood with a tiny needle, and then spinning it in our centrifuge to concentrate natural proteins that are important for new collagen and elastin formation.
The 100% natural PRP is administered to your newly lasered skin with the AQUAGOLD Microneedling System, a painless procedure that uses microneedles thinner than human hair to deliver the growth factors to the dermis.
Together these procedures combine to rev up our body’s natural pathways to produce newly rejuvenated skin with minimized wrinkles and sun damage– the fountain of youth!
The advantage of Vampire Laser compared to other forms of skin rejuvenation is 3 things in particular: 1) It is highly efficacious- uniquely producing collagen and elastin while also eliminating unwanted pigment. 2) It has less downtime than older laser technologies with only a few hours of redness. 3) It is 100% natural, using our own body’s natural skin cell generating pathways to produce new skin and collagen.
The discomfort felt during the procedure is typically described by most of our patients as minor. Patients are also welcome to come in a bit early for their appointment to have a prescription topical numbing cream applied to the areas being treated.
Following the procedure most patients experience redness and swelling in treated areas for a few hours. The areas can be masked with a physician approved foundation the morning following the procedure. As your new skin tissue is generated in the treated area you will notice positive changes in your skin that continue to occur for several months following the procedure.

Came here to see Dr. Akhavan and the experience from start to finish was more than I could hope for. From the moment I booked the appointment I could tell the office is extremely well organized and thoughtful towards their patients’ needs…

I cannot recommend Dr. Akhavan’s practice enough. Dr. Akhavan answers all my questions, no matter how dumb. Unlike my last dermatologist, I felt that they listened to me and allowed me to have input on decisions regarding my health care…
Patricia O., ( Via Yelp )
Dr Akhavan is an outstanding dermatologist. I went in for a skin check and he discovered an abnormal mole. Note that I was 8 months pregnant at the time…
Anda B., ( Via Yelp )
Dr. Akhavan came highly recommended by my close friend and colleague. Although I trust my friend’s word, I still checked the doc out on Yelp. As of today, Dr. Akhavan only has FIVE STAR reviews and you know what? Everything everyone says about him is true!…

Dr. Akhavan was prompt, courteous and informative. I went on the day of snowpocalypse 2014. It didn’t matter, the doctor and his staff were in the office ready for my visit…
