Microneedling with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) also known as a “Vampire Facial” is an amazing way to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while also improving the overall glow of your skin. During your appointment blood is drawn from your arm and taken to be processed in a machine called a centrifuge. The centrifuge rapidly spins your blood causing it to separate into 3 layers:
Red blood cells, platelet-poor plasma, and platelet-rich plasma.
The platelet-rich plasma is extracted and is then applied to your treatment area after micro-needling with Skinpen is completed. As microneedling creates tiny micro-injuries in the skin, the PRP will penetrate into your skin layers through the openings created. This provides the skin with an abundant mixture of growth factor hormones and proteins. While also stimulating collagen production.
What are some amazing benefits of Microneedling with PRP:
· Skin that appears firmer and tighter.
· Reduced appearance of enlarged pores, fine lines, and wrinkles.
· Short in-office treatment times.
· Minimal downtime and side effects.
· Low pain and discomfort. (Numbing cream application is available before treatment)
· Long-lasting results that improve over time.
