Microneedling + PRP for skin rejuvenation
PRP Skin Rejuvenation, commonly referred to as the Vampire Facial or PRP Facelift, is a medical treatment that enhances collagen production via the infusion of your own, natural platelet-rich plasma (PRP). It is applied with a micro-needling pen device, leading to healthier, fuller, more youthful-looking skin with tighter pores and diminished lines. It naturally rejuvenates your skin with minimal downtime.
How is PRP Skin Rejuvenation Peformed?
A sample of blood is obtained from the patient (small amount, about the same as a lab would do). The blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the other components of the blood. This results in a separation of red blood cells and yellow serum that contains your body’s natural 8 potent growth factors. That serum is then deposited back into the deepest layer of the skin during your micro-needling treatment. The micro-needling creates small “channels” within the skin with tiny needles, but you will be numb so you will be comfortable. Once the tiny channels are created, the PRP is able to penetrate deep into the skin and stimulate collagen where you need it most.
Improvement in the skin is seen with each treatment, but a series of 3-6 treatments spaced about a month apart is ideal. This may vary from person to person depending on the desired level of correction. The procedure takes about an hour from start to finish and your downtime is 24-48 hours, depending on the person and how you heal.
