Our experienced nurse practitioner can also extract your blood for a microneedling treatment with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to further rejuvenate your skin.

Instead of the term microneedling, you may have heard of the vampire facial treatment or vampire facelift. Sounds intimidating, right? Some say that this treatment gets its name due to the appearance the blotted PRP will give your skin. Coined by patients as a "vampire" facial treatment, this is mainly because some are shocked to see the blood on their face in the mirror. Rest assured that we will remove the PRP serum, cleanse your skin, and have you looking your best before leaving our office. We also have a suite for you to freshen up and/or reapply your makeup before departure.
"Anita Gardner NP is the Best! I come to see her for my Health Infusions. At ZO, beauty is not just about skin deep, my monthly visits at ZO for my Facials with Claudia and IV Theraphy with Anita help me look and feel better inside and out. Thank you to the ladies of ZO Skin Centre in Pasadena, I love the Power of Blue ... Anita Gardner, Claudia, Natalia, Shelly, and Angeli xoxo"- Y.S. / Yelp / May 26, 2018
"Love getting my facials here. I've tried the hydrafacial and brightening. Both were amazing! I was afraid of the extraction process but it was not too painful at all. Natalia is very gentle and knowledgeable. She explained everything throughout the entire process. Everyone here is super friendly and professional especially Shelly at the front desk. She is the BEST!"- J.F. / Yelp / Apr 30, 2018
"Great facial from Claudia. My skin is always glowing after. Maybe they should think anout adding a 2-3 hr special - I'd be in Heaven"- S.W. / Yelp / Apr 06, 2018
"Just need to be honest for sec, I seriously feel like i've tried almost all the skincare places/people in los angeles and cannot stand the fact that i've never known about ZO skin center until now. I, also, completely loathe the fact that i've wasted thousands of dollars on other estheticians who did not understand my skin and all the money i put into products and facials never brought the same results that these guys have AND I've only had three treatments here so far. Claudia handled all of my skin needs and after seeing her three times, I decided I am not going anywhere else. I've received lasers, peels, facials of all kinds, and nothing compared to the service i received from Claudia who truly cared for my skin and addressed all my concerns. The most important thing I want to say up font though is the fact that ***they are affordable*** and do not rip you off. you will 100% get your money's worth. I am not joking because I have been bamboozled by so many facial, skincare centers and due to my clear vulnerability and desire to perfect my skin, I have handed people money for nothing. A deep cleansing facial is UNDER $200 and a dermafrack treatment is ALSO under $200. They also don't shove products in your face and force you to purchase anything you don't want or need. Claudia gave me a free cleanser and only had me to use their cleansing pads ($35.) She also taught me the beauty of simplicity by using less products on my face. So, i'm not quite sure how/why everyone is saying they make you buy products... my experience here has only been peaceful, calm, and most importantly, simple. I used to go to RejuvaYou in pasadena for my Spectra Laser treatments, but after raising the price of each treatment to $300 this past January, I decided to search for another option. I found ZO Skin Center which immediately made me feel apprehensive, or rather, intimidated, by the name "Obaji" who we all know touts greatness in their products. I literally thought, "this place is going to empty my pockets for certain." Well, I was wrong. My skin has never looked better than any laser treatment I received and Claudia really understood what I needed. After just one visit, my skin was clear and smooth and I left paying half of what I'd pay for a Spectra Laser treatment at RejuvaYou. My second treatment was the dermafrack, which to be honest, is extremely painful and hard to undergo, but well worth it. Just running my hands across my cheeks in the shower has never felt so smooth. i highly recommend getting that done. I have also never received so many compliments about my skin and its new complexion. I 100% recommend ZO skin care and please ask for Claudia. She has literally been a life-saver for me."- F.O. / Yelp / Mar 08, 2018
"I booked a hydrafacial with Natalia and had a wonderful experience. Natalia is knowledgeable and patient -- explaining the entire process and products. My skin felt cleaned and bright. I would definitely recommend this facial to boost your skincare regime."- J.C. / Yelp / Feb 09, 2018
Best Candidates for Microneedling with PRP
Dry skin, uneven skin tone, rough texture, age spots, loose skin, wrinkles on the face, neck, and chest are all characteristics of skin that would benefit from a microneedling treatment with PRP. Candidates with sun damage and acne scars will find that the microneedling process is very rewarding to the skin as well.
What to Expect with Microneedling with PRP
In a private treatment room, we will draw your blood for the PRP collection to take place while you receive your microneedling session. One of our medical staff will take the vial of blood to our lab so it can begin the separation process in a centrifuge. Your stem cells, platelets, and growth factors will then be condensed into a platelet-rich plasma. Meanwhile, you will be relaxing in the treatment chair receiving your microneedling treatment on your skin. The microneedling device (a state-of-the-art, handheld technology) will produce minuscule holes in your skin, which opens pores up just enough to start the cell regeneration process. Starting at your forehead and working all the way around your face, we will glide it across your skin in a back-and-forth motion. The tiny needles will not damage your skin. It will instead brilliantly bolster your ability to produce skin-firming collagen. Once the PRP is ready, it will be applied to your face. You can expect to see some bruising, swelling, and redness in your skin after the treatment normal reactions. It may take several weeks for you to see the end result. Your skin will need time to repair itself and heal.
