Microneedling (PRP Rejuvenation), many times referred to as the Vampire Facelift or Vampire Facial, is a treatment that stimulates collagen production via the infusion of a patient’s own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) though a fractional microneedling pen device, giving the patient a more plumper, tighter, and more youthful skin. It is a fantastic way to rejuvenate your skin naturally with minimal downtime.
How does microneedling work?
At the beginning of the appointment, a small sample of blood is drawn equivalent to the amount for a minor lab test. The blood is put into a centrifuge and spun at a very rapid pace to separate platelet0rich plasma [PRP] from the other elements of the blood. The generated natural, yellow colored serum contained 8 powerful human growth factors that are then deposited back into the dermal layer of the skin as a concentrated serum via the use of a micro-needling device that makes 1,300 micro-channels per second. Once these channels are created, the PRP is able to penetrate deep into the dermis and epidermis.
Visible improvement in the skin is seen with each treatment though the results are compounded and optimal when done in at least a series of 3 around one month apart. The procedure usually takes 30 minutes to an hour depending on the area treated and number of passes.
Microneedling combined with other technologies such as Ultherapy using ultrasound and corrective lasers such as ResurFx can further enhance results
