(Micro-Needling With PRP Or PRF)
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or Platelet Rich fibrin (PRF) therapy aka the “Vampire Facial ®” is used to improve texture, fine lines, deep wrinkles, and scars. PRP or PRF treatment involves a simple blood draw which is then Centrifuged (spun down) to separate the plasma and platelet rich portion (PRP) or platelet rich fibrin (PRF)which is rich in growth factors from the red blood cells. The PRP is then infused back into the skin by micro-needling to stimulate collagen and regenerate new tissue growth.
Platelets play a role in stopping bleeding and in repairing damaged blood vessels and cells in the body. Platelets also contain substances called “growth factors” that activate and rejuvenate cells in our body.
PRP or PRF treatment is combined with Micro-Needling treatments. Using PRP or PRF to treat the under eye area aka “tear troughs” is a very safe and effective way to correct fine lines, dark circles, hollowing, and dryness.
Results often include a more youthful glowing complexion with improvements to the appearance of hyperpigmentation and acne scarring.
Your skin is evaluated very carefully to determine if PRP treatment is ideal for achieving your unique skin goals
