The Next Best Thing to the Fountain of Youth? Microneedling With PRP!

If you follow skin care techniques of Hollywood’s biggest stars, you’ve likely heard of a vampire facial. While it may sound a little frightening, this skin rejuvenation technique simply combines microneedling (inserting fine, short needles into the skin to give you a more radiant, younger appearance) with PRP therapy.

What is PRP?

PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, has been used in as a medicinal therapy, especially after orthopedic injuries, because it helps the body to heal itself much faster. Now, it’s being used in many more applications, especially in aesthetics to renew the skin, taking years off your appearance in as little as one safe and effective treatment. PRP is all natural, as it is derived from the healing cells your own body already produces, and the risk of side effects is nearly non-existent.

To prepare PRP for use, your blood is drawn and is put into a centrifuge that separates the plasma from the red and white blood cells, much like when you donate blood. The blood is denser than the plasma, so it sinks to the bottom, allowing the plasma to be extracted from the top. The platelets, stem cells, and growth factors that help your body stimulate the healing process are then used to naturally renew and rejuvenate your skin.

How Does a Vampire Facial / Microneedling With PRP Work?

After the plasma is extracted from the centrifuge, it is injected into your skin. This creates tiny holes where the platelets enter. Since your plasma is so rich in platelets, which repair cellular damage, your tissues are able to heal and even produce new cells at a more rapid rate. This in turn helps older cells look new again by stimulating collagen and elastin, which are what help keep your skin firm, voluminous, and radiant.

What Are the Benefits of Microneedling with PRP?

There are many benefits to adding PRP to your skin care maintenance, but here are just a few.

    • Minimally Invasive
      Microneedling with PRP is a non-surgical treatment, so unlike with cosmetic surgeries that give similar results, you won’t have scarring and your risk of infection is dramatically reduced.

 

    • Rejuvenates Skin Naturally
      PRP works naturally with your body’s cells; no need to worry about harsh substances your body may reject.

 

  • Quick Recovery
    There is very little downtime associated, and you can return to work or other activities as soon as you feel ready. Redness and swelling may last a few days, though some people report their skin looking normal again in just a few hours.
