Microneedling with PRP is also known as the “Vampire Facial”. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a highly concentrated autologous serum that is rich in growth factors and cytokines. These growth factors regulate and induce cell migration, attachment proliferation, and differentiation as well as promote extracellular matrix accumulation. The preparation of PRP begins with whole blood obtained peripherally from the patient by venipuncture. The blood sample is placed into the centrifuge where it is separated and PRP is obtained. The PRP is then used with microneedling. PRP promotes the regeneration process of soft tissue further stimulating the natural healing process and creation of collagen. Before treatment, the face is cleansed and a mild, topical numbing cream is applied. After allowing enough time to penetrate and numb the skin, the numbing cream is removed and microneedling can begin using the collected PRP. Immediately after treatment, a cool mask is applied to help sooth any redness and irritation. The skin will be slightly pink and may feel slightly sunburned. For most people, recovery is approximately 24-72 hours. The body’s collagen production usually takes about 4-8 weeks, so improvements will continue over time. In the days following your treatment, continue to drink plenty of water, avoid exfoliants and acid based skincare products for 72 hours and always use a sunscreen that is SPF30 or greater.
