Micro Needling with PRP Platelet-Rich Plasma

PRP the Vampire Facial and combining with CIT therapy for enhanced results

Platelet Rich Plasma as an aesthetics treatment came into the spotlight by celebrities having what was coined as the Vampire Facial. However, the use of Platelet Rich Plasma was already frequent in the treating of sports injuries. It is the speeding up of the healing process in tendon and muscle tears that led to the aesthetic use.

Blood consists of red cells, white cells and platelet cells which are all transported around the body in fluid called plasma. Platelets contain an abundance of growth factors and cytokines that are involved in the healing of all tissues in the body. The platelets are best known for their importance in clotting blood. Although, platelets also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are very important in the healing of injuries. PRP is plasma rich in the concentration of platelets, thereby a much higher density of the growth factors.

Vampire Facial

The Vampire Facial involves injecting the plasma rich in growth factors and stem cells back into areas of the face. A volumising treatment that stimulates collagen production to gain a more youthful complexion.

While the Vampire Facial is a very active therapy to fight off premature ageing, combining PRP with CIT therapy or micro-needling of the skin produces a treatment with greater benefit than just facial injection of PRP.

Combining PRP with CIT is an effective treatment for:

  • Acne scarring
  • Surgical scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Lax skin
  • UV Damage
  • Uneven skin tone and texture

Micro-Needling with PRP

A minimally invasive therapy with quick recovery time and minimal discomfort designed to stimulate the bodies natural collagen production.

A small amount of blood is drawn from your arm and placed into a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the other blood products. Micro-needling is performed with a small mechanical device that creates micro wounds, or channels, on the skin.

The prepared PRP is used in place of a serum directly over the channels created by the micro-needling. This further stimulates the bodies natural wound response, further stimulating the production of collagen.

Recovery time

After the treatment, your skin will be slightly pink and feel slightly sunburned. For most people, your skin will completely recover in 24-72 hours. Your body’s collagen production usually takes about 4-8 weeks, so you will continue to see improvements over this time.

Does micro-needling hurt?

We apply a topical numbing cream so your discomfort is minimal during the procedure.

How long before I see results?

Your skin will continue to improve over a 4-8 week period, although, clients notice a visual plumping and tightening of the skin once the redness has subsided after a day or two.

How often should I have the treatment?

You need a four-week break between treatments and depending on what skin complaints you are having the therapy for will determine how many sessions you should have. We often recommend a treatment plan of 3 sessions, however, it does depend on what we are treating with the therapy.
