Revive Your Youthful Complexion
Platelet Rich Plasma Facial, known as PRP Facial or Vampire Facial, is a facial procedure that uses your blood to trick your body into the healing process that uniquely repairs the skin. This type of treatment harnesses the body’s natural healing properties to induce phenomenal skin rejuvenation. It is a great way to improve skin texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and restore volume and skin elasticity.
PRP facial treatments are a combination of PRP therapy and micro-needling. Once the PRP is extracted, the skin will undergo micro-needling (we also offer micro-needling as its own treatment, scroll down to learn more). This process creates small superficial wounds across the face. During the micro-needling part of the facial, PRP is applied to the skin. This will begin the rapid rejuvenation process that improves the skin, revealing a more supple, youthful complexion.
PRP FACIAL FAQs
The plasma used during a PRP facial is derived from the patient’s blood source. When being treated, the patient will have their blood drawn typically from the arm. Once this is done, the treatment specialist will place the blood into a centrifuge machine for about 10 minutes where the plasma is separated from the blood.
The most notable benefits are the improvement in the skin’s tone and texture. Another advantage is how the treatment process prompts rapid skin healing, collagen production, and new cell growth. This combination works together to help the patient potentially take years off their appearance, helping them look more youthful and radiant.
If you are someone who suffers with fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, uneven skin tone or texture, or dull skin, you can benefit from a PRP treatment.
Achieve the Perfect Glow
Micro-needling, sometimes called collagen induction therapy, is a safe, minimally invasive treatment to stimulate skin rejuvenation. The treatment uses fine needles to create tiny puncture wounds in the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production. The microscopic punctures in your skin correct problem areas, including skin quality, wrinkles, fine lines, acne scarring, and more. Microneedling also helps your skin products penetrate the deeper layers of the skin to work more effectively.
This treatment can be done as part of a PRP Facial treatment or on its own. Our aesthetic experts will recommend the right treatment combination for you.
This treatment is ideal for individuals looking to:
- Improve fine lines/wrinkles.
- Improve skin texture/under-eye bags.
- Reduce pore size.
- Soften acne scars.
Initially, we will apply topical lidocaine to numb the skin and ensure you get a comfortable and pain-free treatment. Then, a thin layer of topical gel is applied and the pen is gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.
The Microneedling procedure takes 30-45 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the Dermapen setting used and the number of overlapping passes your skin care professional performs. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Many patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.
Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months after a treatment as collagen production continues.
Some patients only require a single treatment once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 3-4 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals.
