PRP & Microneedling (also known as the Vampire Facial) is a revolutionary micro-needling treatment that lifts, tightens and rejuvenates the skin. Unlike the traditional dermaroller treatments, PRP & Microneedling is able to deliver treatment at a more controlled depth, which is more comfortable, targetted with less downtime. It effectively targets the dermis (the skin beneath the epidermis) to mainly treat acne scars and uneven skin texture.
Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) works on the basis that the body has healing powers potent enough to improve the signs of ageing and hair growth. We carry out this treatment by taking a small blood sample. This is then spun in a centrifuge machine that separates the blood cells, serum and platelets. The platelet-rich plasma is extracted and injected directly back into the face or scalp. PRP Platelets release growth factors that help the body repair itself by stimulating cells to generate new tissue. When injected into the skin, this treatment promotes healthy skin and hair growth, and has been shown to be effective at improving fine lines, skin tone and dull skin.
Following on from the PRP part of the treatment you will have a session of microneedling. At my clinic we use DermapenTM for our Microneedling treatments. Widely recognised as the gold standard in micro-needling technology, DermapenTM works by stimulating the skin to produce new collagen and elastin. This production enables the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely. The results are smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin. Dr Nicole uses DermapenTM as part of her full face, systematic approach to facial rejuvenation.
We can also combine this treatment with HA (Hyaluronic Acid) to give an extra boost to make your skin look more invigorated.
