You’ve probably heard of microneedling with PRP referred to as the “Vampire Facial”. If you are looking for a treatment that will help with skin issues such as sun damage, fine lines, acne scarring, acne pitting, and pigmentation then this may be the treatment for you. This treatment heals and repairs your skin from past scarring. By getting microneedling with PRP will be able to renew and repair your skin.
Microneedling with PRP is similar to the process of getting a normal microneedling treatment. After the treatment, tiny needles create micro-injuries in the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. Collagen is an essential protein that provides elasticity to the skin. It helps the skin appear more youthful, vibrant, and glowing. Over a series of treatments, this can lead to entirely new layers of skin appearing and scars, acne, sun damage, and many other skin issues fading away. The micro-channels that the tiny needles create then allow for the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to be absorbed into the dermis. Throughout the treatment, the PRP is applied to the skin topically. The treatment stimulates new collagen production and leads to quicker healing time in the skin, quicker results, and healthier cells in the treated area.
