Medical Micro-Needling with PRP previously known as the Vampire Facial
Medical Micro-Needling is used for the treatment of fine lines and acne scarring, and for the improvement of the skin’s texture, tone and discoloration.
What should I expect during this procedure?
After a topical anesthetic is applied tiny sterilized needles are used to create controlled micro-punctures to the skin in order to better facilitate the production of collagen and elastin. The skin then begins the repair process, which results in a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles. At Advanced Medical Spa & Laser Center, we use the Eclipse Micro-pen, that creates an injury to the skin to encourage it to create its own collagen.
The Vampire Facial is a combination of medical micro needling used in conjunction with platelet rich plasma found in your own blood, which is drawn at the time of the facial. The platelet rich plasma stimulates tissue growth for a completely enhanced appearance.
PRP stands for “Platelet Rich Plasma”, and it is used to help build new collagen. It does this by aiding the body in its healing process. By promoting new collagen production through accelerated healing, the overall appearance of sun spots, wrinkles, and fine lines is greatly reduced.
