How to Embrace Your Inner Vampire This Halloween
- Posted on: Oct 30 2018
When it comes to anti aging, nothing is quite as popular right now as Platelet Rich Plasma with microneedling for our patients. And although this isn’t the vampire facial, it may make you look like a vampire while you’re getting it done. Let’s take a closer look at what you can expect from this practically Halloween inspired treatment.
To start out, we will perform a procedure called microneedling on your skin. Here at our office we use a tool called the Eclipse MicroPen which uses fine, sterile needles to create a controlled puncture ranging from .5 to 2.5 millimeters into the skin. Once the skin has been punctured, it encourages the body to send an influx of vascularization and collagen to the area to help it heal.
Platelet rich plasma is used to treat a variety of health and cosmetic conditions. Because the plasma in our own blood is so protein and nutrient dense, it helps to heal the skin. So, when we combine it with microneedling, it helps the skin to heal faster and gives patients even better results because of all of the nutrients that are going back into your skin from your own plasma.
This combination of procedures is really effective at helping patients treat sun damaged skin, fine lines and wrinkles, or just an uneven complexion.
