Micro-Needling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) also known as the Vampire Facelift. Micro-needling is a therapy treatment used to minimize acne scars, wrinkles, tighten facelift, stretch marks, enlarged pores, keloid and surgical scarring. It is a devise that delivers tiny needles prickles into the dermal layer of the skin to stimulate the skins natural healing process. Studies have found that micro-needling is so effective against acne scars that after one treatment a 40-50% improvement is shown. The device being used is the Dermapen, the world’s first micro-needling choice for medical professionals and patients.
Platelet Rich Plasma is a concentration of platelets in the blood that are crucial to wound healing. When used for skin rejuvenation, PRP releases growth factors into the skin to expedite the body’s own repair process and stimulate new collagen and elastin. A small blood sample is taken from your own body and the PRP is separated from the other components.
The PRP is applied to the skin immediately following a micro-needling procedure. The micro-channels created by micro-needling provide direct pathways to the deeper layers of skin for optimal wound healing. Micro-needling with PRP application is the ideal treatment for an overall rejuvenation of the skin.
The recommended amount is 4-6 treatments with a 6 week span. The cost is $500 per treatment.
