ABOUT MICRONEEDLING WITH PRP
Microneedling with PRP (platelet rich plasma), also known as collagen induction therapy as well as the Vampire Facial, is ideal for the treatment of acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks, wrinkles and fine lines, hyperpigmentation, lax skin, sun damaged, large pores, and uneven skin texture. It can be performed either on the face or body and is suitable for all skin types and colors.
HOW MICRONEEDLING WITH PRP WORKS
This therapy is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment with quick recovery time and is designed to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. The treatment actually involves the use of two procedures, micro-needling and PRP (platelet rich plasma), done consecutively.
The first procedure is called microneedling. A small, hand-held, automatic device that contains tiny microneedles is passed over the skin, creating tiny micro-wounds, or channels, on the skin. During the body’s natural wound-healing process of these channels, collagen and elastin are automatically produced.
PRP (PLATELET RICH PLASMA)
The second procedure is called PRP (platelet rich plasma). PRP is produced from an individual’s own blood. After a blood sample is obtained from a patient, the blood is put into a centrifuge, which is a tool that separates the PRP from the blood. The blood is spun for approximately 15 minutes.
PRP contains highly concentrated amounts of natural growth factors and other cytokines that promote the regeneration process of soft tissues. The PRP is applied directly to the channels that were created from the microneedling to further stimulate the natural healing process and creation of collagen.
