Microneedling with PRP (also known as the “vampire facial”), is an advanced treatment for those looking to improve the integrity of their skin.
The Microneedling procedure itself involves using a specialized micropen with precisely spaced micro-needles to create invisible vertical micro-perforations in the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis. (A numbing cream minimizes any discomfort during this process.) As a result of these micro-injuries, the skin shifts its natural repair mechanism into high gear and starts producing collagen and elastin to repair these micro-perforations.
PRP is platelet-rich plasma that contains highly concentrated amounts of natural growth factors, stem cells and other cytokines that promote the regeneration process of soft tissues. It is obtained by centrifuging a vial of your own blood at very high speeds. The resulting plasma layer is then applied to your skin during the Microneedling treatment to maximize penetration.
Paired together, these micro-perforations allow for deep penetration of PRP with all its healing properties. The result is a 100% natural form of skin renewal from the inside out.
