PRP Micro-Needling or “The Vampire Facial”
No stakes or garlic required! Micro-needling with PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, is a cosmetic treatment that uses your own blood to help promote the healthy activity of your skin cells. During the treatment, a practitioner will roll tiny needles over the skin and while applying platelets, which are one of the components of blood. These platelets contains proteins, including growth factors and cytokines. These proteins help skin tissue actually repair itself by encouraging both cell reproduction and the production of collagen. Practitioners may use micro-needling with PRP to treat scars, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, large pores, and uneven skin texture.
