Micro-Needling With PRP/Vampire Facial Birmingham, MI
Our Signature SB Liquid Gold Facial, known to many as the Vampire Facial™, is a revolutionary, minimally invasive, new procedure that utilizes micro-needling while harnessing the power of your own stem cells.
One of the most popular and least invasive methods for skin rejuvenation, the practice of micro-needling has been around since the early ages. Advances in technology and techniques now make micro-needling safer and more effective than ever in gently opening up and resurfacing the skin for subtle, natural improvements that are long-lasting.
The benefits of micro-needling are often paired with various products to optimize results. At Skin Boutique, we offer micro-needling in conjunction with platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, to aid the skin in repairing itself and restore a natural glow to aging skin.
Located in Birmingham, Michigan, our medical team at Skin Boutique is led by RN Aesthetic Nurse Specialist Rhonda Nesbitt, and we are so excited to meet you! Contact us today to schedule a consultation with our medical aesthetic team and find out if you are a candidate for micro-needling with PRP.
What is Micro-Needling?
Also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy, micro-needling utilizes a series of tiny, sterile needles located in the tip of a pen-like medical tool. As these needles are moved over the skin, they penetrate below to the surface to a specific depth and create microchannels that are invisible to the naked eye. This process stimulates the production of new collagen underneath the skin, restoring structure and strength. Micro-needling also helps restructure existing collagen fibers to tighten and lift loose skin.
After the skin is opened up during the micro-needling process, it has an increased ability to absorb skincare products and beneficial topical solutions such as PRP.
What is PRP and How Does it Help the Skin?
Platelet-rich plasma has been utilized in several fields of medicine for its ability to help generate new tissues and heal injured areas. When used along with micro-needling, PRP acts as a catalyst which stimulates collagen regrowth and thus naturally smooths and tightens the skin and increases its flexibility, tone and texture. Additionally, PRP has been shown to help increase circulation within the skin, restoring a natural, youthful glow.
PRP is created using a small sample of the client’s own blood, which is then spun through a sterile centrifuge process and separated into its individual components. This infuses the plasma, the liquid portion of the blood, with a higher number of platelets than normal. While mainly responsible for clotting the blood, platelets also contain several growth factors that aid in the regeneration of skin and tissues. Micro-needling is a safe and effective standalone treatment, but when paired with PRP maximum results are often achieved.
Is Micro-Needling with PRP Safe?
As PRP is derived from your body’s own resources, this is a safe treatment that typically carries no major risks or side effects. Micro-needling is gentle on the skin and may result in a temporary pink or flushed appearance, but this typically subsides after a few hours. Results may vary, and our medical aesthetic team will advise you on how many sessions you may need in order to achieve desired results.
