Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial
The PRP Facial also known as the Vampire Facial has become popular thanks to celebrities having the procedure to keep their skin looking camera ready and glowing. The PRP Facial is a procedure which combines platelet rich plasma (PRP) with the use of sterile micro needle dermal stimulation.
The PRP Facial involves placement platelet-rich plasma (PRP) with its growth and healing factors into the deeper levels of the skin using micro-needling. The procedure improves cell turnover, skin renewal, and adds an overall glow to facial skin. When done correctly, the procedure is painless without any bleeding.
The medical micro needle procedure is a method of “collagen induction therapy” also referred to as “CIT”. The small entries into the dermis cause the skin to respond with collagen which softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as superficial sun damage.
The platelet rich plasma (PRP) delivery to the dermis further enhances the micro needle treatment so collagen and other skin enhancing support is stimulated by the growth factors in the platelet rich plasma (PRP). The platelet rich plasma (PRP) also has factors which stimulate blood supply to the skin. This creates a look of glow and luster to the skin which is unique to platelet rich plasma.
The benefits of this treatment can be appreciated as soon as 1 week. The skin can continue to improve over several weeks and the benefits can last for months.
The PRP Facial is customized to the needs of the client. The PRP Facial can be used to improve the appearance of:
- Acne scars
- Chicken Pox scars
- Fine lines
- Sun damaged skin
- Brown discolorations
Skin needling, also called microneedling therapy, collagen induction therapy (CIT), and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI), is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. The needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. Through the process of neovascularization and neocollagenesis, there is improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
This is an effective treatment to address the most common skin conditions including, pre-mature aging and acne. In our youth, skin cells naturally turn-over every 18 to 20 days resulting in a healthy, vibrant look. As we age this process slows down giving us a dull, chalky appearance. Chemical Peels stimulate cell turn-over to give back that radiant look we remember. Chemical Peels are one of the most effective and affordable ways to turn back the hands of time. Chemical Peels Are Effective For Treating different skins types including hormonal , acne prone , dull , dry, congested and aging.
Classic medical microdermabrasion uses medical grade crystals that are vacuumed across the outer surface of the skin at high velocity, using a closed loop power system and hand piece. The crystals exfoliate the outermost layer of skin, exposing living skin cells that are soft, smooth and receptive to nutrients. The underlying epidermis is also stimulated by abrasion and vacuum. This promotes generation of new collagen that thickens the dermis and improves resistance to the effects of aging. The benefits of microdermabrasion are the following: non-invasive, painless, no recovery time, treats all skin types, provides instant gratification and an immediate, noticeable effect.
