Fall is finally here! Here in South Florida, we don’t really see a big difference in the weather, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take care of your skin or that your skin’s needs do not change.
Here are three facial treatments we have on sale at the Miami Center for Dermatology just for the fall.
Vampire Facial in Miami
Feeling spooky? You’re going to love this facial! The ‘Vampire Facial’ has been popular for a few years now, starting with that famous photo of Kim Kardashian West showing off a bloody face at her dermatologist’s office.
Officially, the ‘Vampire Facial’ is called a platelet rich plasma (PRP) facial. This facial treatment is a non-surgical procedure where a doctor injects parts of the patient’s blood into various areas of the patient’s face to treat wrinkles and acne scars and give the patient a younger, rejuvenated appearance.
Dermatologists often use a micro-needling device to puncture the skin and push the platelet-rich plasma into the dermis, the inner layer of skin beneath the epidermis. Our PRP facial in Miami can activate the stem cells that lie dormant in the skin to grow new, younger-looking skin.
Things may get a little bloody, but rest assured that this is a very safe and effective procedure. Many patients report that their skin looks and feels refreshed after getting a platelet-rich plasma facial and that their fine lines and wrinkles diminish.
These results are almost instantaneous, and many of them experience no visible bruising at the injections sites, along with very minimal discomfort. Because of the new blood vessel formation, your skin will also appear brighter, giving it a more youthful glow.
This is especially beneficial for patients who struggle with dull, lackluster skin. Because the PRP substance is injected into your dermis, your epidermis (the outermost layer of your skin) will appear smoother. Over time, the Vampire Facial stimulates your skin to produce new collagen, lifting your face and giving it a youthful, firm appearance.
Typically, the platelet rich plasma facial is $750, but for a limited time, the Miami Center for Dermatology is discounting it to $599 just in time for Halloween!
Get Bootiful with “Boooootox”
Botox is a tried and true facial treatment for our Miami dermatologists as it removes facial lines, frown lines, and forehead lines. Dr. Longwill and our staff provide the best services using the latest technology, and administering BOTOX® involves no anesthesia. However, your doctor may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream.
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief as your dermatologist will administer a few tiny injections of Botox directly into the muscles that cause those moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows. It takes approximately 10 minutes for the entire treatment, and then you’re good to go!

Juvéderm Voluma™ XC is the latest FDA-approved hyaluronic acid soft tissue filler. The filler has been available for use in Europe for 12 years and is used in 72 countries worldwide. This facial in Miami is made up of a lidocaine formula, which adds comfort during the treatment.
