The Vampire Facial
The vampire facial is microneedling with PRP, also know as a ‘plasma facial’.
Microneedling is the insertion of very fine short needles into the skin. This causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process. The micro-injuries trigger the release of cytokines and growth factors that lead to remodeling of collagen and elastin.
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. Platelets are key factors in hard and soft tissue repair mechanisms. They provide the essential growth factors that are involved in stem cell migration, differentiation and proliferation.
By combining microneedling and PRP into one procedure new collagen, new blood vessels, and new fatty tissue are produced trying to "repair" the skin that was never injured! This results in younger-appearing skin. The effects of the procedure improve for 2 to 3 months and last for at least 1 to 2 years!
