The Vampire Facial vs. The Vampire Facelift (Injections)
Instead of application through injections as in the Vampire Facelift, we utilize Micro Needling to create tiny channels along the skin surface. Then, your doctor applies PRP directly to the skin, allowing the full penetration of PRP deep down into the dermis and epidermis layers of the skin. Topically applying PRP enables it to get into more planes in the skin, compared to injections where the PRP is isolated to the injected area. Thus the micro needling allows PRP to get into the skin more evenly affecting the total face rather than secluded sections.
The treatment method is completely safe and ideal for all skin types.
PRP to minimize scars and stretch marks
The micro needling and PRP procedure also works well in minimizing the appearance of both scarring and stretch marks:
- Scarring: The micro needling is used to break up the fibrous tissues of the scar and the PRP stimulates the growth of healthy tissue.
- Stretch Marks: Micro needling creates damage over the thinned skin of the stretch mark. PRP then promotes growth of thicker skin.
Enhancing other treatments
PRP can also enhance the results other kinds of facial rejuvenation treatments such as Exilis Ultra Skin Tightening and Pixel Skin Resurfacing. The growth factors in PRP increase the effectiveness of these procedures by further helping to tighten the skin.
