PRP Microneedling Facial (Vampire Face Treatment)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a natural product created from your own body that is used to improve facial wrinkles, fine lines, and overall skin texture by inducing your body’s own natural collagen production.
How PRP Works:
PRP is a cutting edge non-surgical treatment that uses your own natural growth factors to promote the formation of collagen.
Platelets contain healing growth factors. Those growth factors are like signaling molecules that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate. PRP has been used medically for years to help regrow muscle and bone, to accelerate wound healing and to repair tendon, ligament and joint damage.
When PRP is placed back into the skin by micro-needling, it initiates a localized stem cell response. Over the weeks and months following treatment, this stem cell response recruits collagen-producing cells called fibroblasts. The fibroblasts replace tissue that has been damaged or lost through the aging process with healthy skin that looks refreshed and rejuvenated.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is an extract of your own blood that contains a high concentration of platelets, growth factors, and active proteins for tissue and injury healing.
This treatment involves the collection and concentration of your body’s own platelets.
First, a special collection tube is used to draw a small sample of your blood. The tube is then placed into a specialized centrifuge. A numbing cream is applied to your face.
After centrifugation, your concentrated platelets are prepared and applied following specialized micro-punctures to the skin.
- Promotes cellular regeneration
- Increases blood supply to the skin
- Acts as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow
- Improves acne scars and pigmentation
- Softens wrinkles and creates a smoother skin texture and tone
- Naturally brightens and tightens skin
- Has little to no down time
PRP Microneedling harnesses the healing power of your platelets and growth factors to stimulate a stem cell response.
These stem cells help you to grow new collagen and blood vessels, repair and regenerate damaged skin, and help slow and reverse the signs of aging.
Growth Factors in PRP:
Collagen Stimulating Growth Factor: Stimulates granulocyte and macrophage proliferation for the growth of healthy tissue and blood cells.
Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF): Attracts macrophages and fibroblasts to the application site. Promotes collagen growth and proteoglycan synthesis and the formation of the extracellular matrix, also known as fibrin mesh.
Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF): Promotes angiogenesis, granulation, and epithelialization.
Transforming Growth Factor (TGF): Promotes angiogenesis, which is the physiological process involving the synthesis of new blood vessels.
Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF): An important signaling protein involved in both angiogenesis and the promotion of blood vessel growth from pre-existing vasculature.
Interleukins, Macrophages, Keratinocytes, Endothelial Cells, Lymphocytes, Fibroblasts, Osteoblasts, Basophils and Mast Cells: Activate fibroblast differentiation. Induce collagen and proteoglycan synthesis for healthy cell production and repair of damaged tissues.
