“Vampire Facials,” or as we refer to it, Microneedling with PRP, 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.
