What is microneedling with PRP?
Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, has quickly become our most popular service. It is an anti-aging facial that stimulates collagen.* Collagen induction therapy reduces acne scars, wrinkles, enlarged pores, stretch marks and improves tone and texture.* An automated microneedling pen is used to make micro-injuries into the skin to produce collagen and elastin.*
PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, is a cutting-edge form of regenerative medicine that is being used more and more in cosmetic treatments. PRP is performed by drawing a small vial of your own blood. The blood is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the growth factors, platelets and stem cells from the rest of the blood. Once this unique mixture is obtained, the enriched plasma is applied to the desired treatment areas. The enriched plasma contains proteins and molecules that provide nutrients to the skin’s cells, making it a natural, healthy way to improve aging skin.*
What are the benefits?
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapies promote the induction of collagen when used in an aesthetic treatment. The process uses the patientʼs own blood and a microneedling device (Eclipse Micropen or Morpheus 8) to create a controlled wound, then inject the platelet rich plasma into treatment areas, releasing growth factors that increase the proliferation of cells.
What does Vermont Med Spa provide?
Vermont Med Spa offers 3 levels of treatment:
- Level 1: Eclipse MicroPen using hyaluronic acid serum
- Level 2: Eclipse MicroPen using growth factors
- Level 3: “Microneedling Facelift” – MicroPen or Morpheus 8 RF Microneedling Laser using PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
We recommend a minimum of 3 treatments and use of recommended home care products. We also offer discount packages.
How does the Microneedling Facelift (aka VampireTM) work?
First, the RN will draw blood with a small needle and separate the red blood cells from the platelet rich plasma (PRP). We then take that plasma and apply it topically to the patientʼs face. The skin is aerated by the Eclipse MicroPen, or RF Microneedling Laser- Morpheus 8, which produces microscopic holes that allows the PRP to enter the skin.
What should I expect during my treatment?
Treatments usually take around 60 minutes or less, with very little downtime afterward. Side effects are rare, but patients report noticing slight puffiness in their face that dissipates after a couple of days. There are no risks involved during the Microneedling Facelift.
