About Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling is a treatment that punctures small holes into the skin on your face, neck, or chest to stimulate skin repair. As an additional benefit, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be applied to the same area to help tissue heal and permit the skin to grow new cells. These two treatments together are often referred to as the vampire facial and can diminish the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, large pores, scars, fine lines, and other skin conditions. The texture of your skin may be greatly improved to appear smoother and more without damaging the skin. If you would like to learn more about the microneedling with PRP treatment, contact VIP Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV to schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Christopher Khorsandi.
Microneedling with PRP Reviews
"I went in for a consultation for fraxel and PRP. The front desk was very pleasant and professional and the front desk receptionist made me feel very welcome. My consultation was with Melanie who was amazing! She went over the procedures and what to expect and answered all my questions. I actually got a few other consultations but came back to VIP because I wanted the best service and treatment and I knew I would get it there. Melanie did my fraxel treatment and PRP and I went back again for a clear & brilliant treatment as well. She did an amazing job and so happy with the results! Melanie is very thorough and makes sure the client is comfortable. Melanie is the best in town for any aesthetic procedure!"- J.J. / Yelp / Mar 22, 2018
A good candidate for microneedling with PRP would be any individual looking to alter the appearance or texture of the surface of their face. Dry skin, uneven skin tone, coarse texture, age spots, loose skin, wrinkles, acne and scarring are skin conditions that could benefit from a microneedling with PRP treatment. This procedure can also be utilized to combat the effects of sun damage that may have caused skin to have a rough texture or hyperpigmentation.
Prior to the microneedling portion of your treatment, someone from our medical staff will draw your blood for the PRP collection. The drawn blood will then be taken to our in-house lab for the separation process where your stem cells, platelets, and growth factors will be turned into PRP. For the microneedling treatment, VIP Plastic Surgery employs innovative technology to create small holes in your skin. The little needles used will not damage your skin but will instead help stimulate the production of collagen. Once the microneedling is done, the PRP serum will be placed on the skin and massaged in to sink into the punctured holes. After the PRP is fully absorbed, we will remove the serum and cleanse your skin.
What to Expect
Following your microneedling with PRP procedure, you could experience some side effects such as swelling, bruising, and redness. The puncture marks made on the skin will be noticeable, but they are tiny and heal rather quickly, and most patients are able to return to work within the same week. This procedure stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which help to create a younger-looking appearance. With the help of the powerful PRP serum, the healing process and overall skin rejuvenation begin to take shape and a beautiful, younger glow will appear. It is important to avoid sun exposure or if outdoors, use protective measures to keep the new skin safe. Final results are usually seen within several weeks as the skin continues to repair and heal itself.
