Microneedling with Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP), also known as collagen-induction therapy or the “Vampire Facial.”
On the face, this treatment is excellent for reducing the appearance of scars, acne, sun spots, or large pores, and for increasing skin elasticity and tone.
We also use PRP microneedling on the scalp to stimulate hair growth — it’s pretty amazing!
Here’s how it works:
We draw a tube of blood from your arm and spin it in our centrifuge to isolate and concentrate your plasma. Plasma is rich in platelets, a formed element of your blood which is filled to the brim with growth factors (medical term: magical healing thingies)!
A special microneedling device (we use SkinPen) is pressed gently into your face, neck, or décolletage to create small microinjuries on the surface of your skin, into which your own plasma is absorbed to speed recovery and induce collagen production.
Microneedling with SkinFuse
Skip the blood draw, and opt for microneedling with SkinFuse, a lightweight, water-based gel that hydrates and balances yours skin’s PH during and after the procedure.
A series of three microneedling treatments is recommended for optimal outcome.
