What is the 'Vampire Facial'?
Microneedling and PRP are two very different treatment. Miconeedling is primarily used to minimize the aging signs, it works by using the find needles to prick the skin to generate new collagen. PRP ( platelet rich plasma) is a type of treatment which uses patient’s own platelets to stimulate new cell growth to improve complexion and skin texture.
When microneedling is combined with PRP, the therapy might be referred to as "vampire facial" The combination makes microneedling more effective and less downtime as platelets can speed up the wound healing and help skin tissue repair itself.
Whats the procedure?
Firstly, numbing cream will be used to minimize the discomfort during the procedure. Then a practitioner will take a blood sample and then use centrifuge to separate the PRP from the rest of the blood particles. The microneedling treatment creates small controlled micropunctures in the skin, PRP solution will then penetrated patient’s skin through the microscopic channels created by micorneedling.
What to expect after the treatment?
The downtime for this procedure is minimal, patient might experience minor redness and irritation, and it will go down in 2-3 days. Patient needs to avoid using skin care products that contains active ingredients such as alcohol, retinol and vitamin c. Proper sun protection is important, too.
Patient can expect to see the results in 2-4 weeks time, the skin will be rejuvenated and smoother the pores appear be smaller. Normally it required 3 or more sessions to achieve better results.
