VAMPIRE FACIAL(MICRONEEDLING WITH PRP) OVERVIEW

Microneedling or SkinPen is a familiar term in the aesthetic industry but what is it? Microneedling is the process of laying down several pinpoint wounds with needles on the face to create a collagen stimulation. The theory behind the technology has been around for many years but has recently become very popular among men and women trying to approve the tone and texture of their skin. When it comes to this procedure, we can adjust the depth of the puncture to the skin which determines how much collagen stimulation we can achieve from a single treatment. The latest addition to this minimally invasive skin rejuvenation technique is adding PRP topically which penetrates into the pinpoint wound helping to nourish the skin, smooth out fine lines, and wrinkles. PRP is rich in Growth Factors and Cytokines which provides the basis for tissue repair and collagen growth.

PRP, known as platelet-rich plasma is a relatively newer trend for its use in facial rejuvenation. It has been around for a while and was first used in open-heart surgery in 1987 and is now utilized in orthopedics, hair loss, dentistry, and cosmetics.

HOW MICRONEEDLING WITH PRP WORKS?

The procedure from start to finish takes about an hour to an hour and a half. The first step is the blood draw process. Microneedling with PRP is performed by a licensed MA, RN, or PA-C. The blood is then spun down two times to separate out the platelet-rich plasma from the red blood cells leaving a yellowish residue which is the platelet rich plasma. While the blood is spinning in the centrifuge, your aesthetic specialist will begin the micro needling on the face. After each section of the face is done, while the wounds are still fresh and open the PRP is gently massaged on top of the skin. This helps to repair those wounds while nourishing and feeding the skin with the growth factors and cytokines in your own blood in a concentrated form. Nothing unnatural or synthetic is used on the skin which is what makes this procedure so unique and so desirable.
