Known amongst the beauty community as the “Vampire facial” PRP microneedling involves using a medical grade microneedling pen to inject PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) below the surface of the skin causing an increase in collagen production. This is great in reducing the signs of aging as well as a treatment for acne, acne scarring and rosacea.
Injected just below the surface of the skin, PRP Injections can help reverse the signs of aging in the skin, including eliminating or improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Best results are seen through consistency, treatments are recommended monthly for the first three to four months. For maintenance twice yearly is recommended.
PRP is a much safer alternative to other facial injections and possibly more effective. While other fillers fill in “empty” areas under the skin over time this can lead to reduction in skin elasticity and eventually sagging of the skin. PRP injections actually go beneath the skin and increase collagen production which allows for a firmer and more youthful appearance.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a promising treatment for hair restoration in patients with hair loss including androgenic alopecia (male and female pattern baldness). For best results, consistency is key. Treatments are typically performed once a month for the first four to five months. Then twice yearly following hair growth. Initial results usually involve decreased hair shedding and it is typical for patients to start seeing hair growth following the first two to three treatments.
