The Vampire Facial and Micro Needling: A Perfect Match
Perhaps you’ve already heard of PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy and micro needling. Both of these procedures have proven to be some of the most advanced and effective ways to radiant, youthful, smooth skin.
PRP therapy, also known as the vampire facial, has been making headlines for being a great way to get younger, glowing skin. The before and after results of several celebrities speak for themselves! And micro needling has established itself a proven procedure that corrects skin issues and promotes healthier, more youthful skin.
Though both of these treatments offer their own benefits separately, putting them together creates an anti-aging and skin perfecting powerhouse that can address a variety of skin concerns. Let’s break down why this combination is so effective, and why Dr. Siegel recommends it to many of his patients.
The Power of Micro Needling
We know the skin has an amazing ability to heal itself after injury. It also renews itself each day, shedding old cells and producing new ones. Micro needling takes advantage of both of these natural processes to make the skin look, feel, and act younger.
The Dermapen® micro needling device used by Dr. Siegel is an industry leader in this advanced treatment. It uses tiny, disposable, acupuncture-like needles to make hundreds of tiny injuries to the skin. This stimulates the skin’s own collagen and elastin production, which tends to slow down as we age. It also allows treatments to further penetrate and work below the surface of the skin.
Micro needling makes skin more plump, smooth, and youthful with time. In fact, micro needling has been shown to improve acne scars and wrinkles while providing a youthful glow.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP Therapy), or the Vampire Facial
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an amazing substance found naturally in your blood. It contains growth factors that tell cells to renew themselves. When applied in a PRP therapy session, it can erase wrinkles, smooth texture, correct uneven color, and minimize scars.
When PRP is applied to the face in conjunction with a micro needling session, you get the benefits of both procedures in a minimally invasive way. The microneedles allow the PRP to penetrate below the surface in hundreds of different points, providing their remarkable benefits of collagen production and smoother, more flawless skin. And because it’s your body’s own natural plasma, there’s virtually no risk of allergic reactions or side effects.
If you have acne scars, wrinkles, dullness, or other skin problems, the vampire facial and micro needling may be the combination you need to address these concerns while improving your skin’s overall look and feel.
