What is Microneedling + 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 without damaging the skin further. 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. Khorsandi.
Microneedling with PRP Reviews
"VIP is the best, first class experience all the way. The staff is amazing ~ Jenny, Catherine and Ashley made me feel so special, making my time there truly unforgettable. LOVE my vampire facial, the results are unbelievable, definitely exceeded my expectations! Thank you VIP I'll def be back!!!"- A.G. / Yelp / Apr 04, 2016
"I just wanted to share my experience that I recently had at Vip plastic surgery. I've been going to Dr. Korsandi for a couple of years now for regular maintenance and one of the reasons why I keep going back is because I know that I'll get the results I'm looking for and I know exactly what to expect during my down time and recovery because of Dr. korsandi and his knowledgeable staff. One particular staff member that I believe deserves much more than the five stars recommended here is his resident esthetician, Melanie. I just recently had the fraxel laser done followed by the vampire facial which was all done by Melanie in Dr. Korsandi's office and Melanie really put my anxiety to rest because she told me exactly what to expect after the procedure and explained in such detail about my after care. Everything that she told me to expect happened from day 1 to recovery. Thanks Melanie for taking the time. It's really easy to hand someone a sheet of paper about post care but to share their experiences from previous patients and her own personal treatments is true care. Can't thank you enough Melanie."- S.S. / Yelp / Oct 17, 2017
"Sarah did my 2nd Vampire facial (PRP) yesterday and as always LOVE IT. My skin is like brand new after I see her. Highly recommend seeing her for it. I bought a package they have right now so I'll be back for 2 more! ?"- K.S. / Facebook / Sep 06, 2018
"I have been going to VIP Plastic Surgery now for about four years. At first I just started getting my lips filled with Juvéderm and I loved the outcome. They looked so natural and I was so happy! Dr. Khorsandi is such a pleasure to be around and he is such an amazing doctor I would never go anywhere else. Not only do I feel welcome every time I go in but they take such good care of me. I am now 31 and have started to see a slight change in my face and some minor cellulite. So I decided to go see Melanie who is one of the aestheticians there. I had some concerns about some cellulite under my butt area on my thighs. I went in and had a consultation with her about the Body FX. She told me it was a non-invasive procedure and it pretty much just melted your fat and made your skin tighter and more firm. So I decided to try the procedure out. Not only did I love the procedure but Melanie was such a professional and did such a wonderful job that I started asking about the different kind of facials and non invasive treatments they had for my under eye and face. After having a consultation with both Melanie and Dr. Khorsandi we agreed that the Morpheus which is a micro needling procedure for my under eye would help tighten and smooth my under eyes so I wouldn't have to get fillers. I agreed to the three treatments. The package was a good deal (in my eyes to be honest) other places charge way more. The treatment hurt like hell but I was very pleased with the aftermath. After doing the Morpheus Micro Needling I decided to do a vampire facial, which I literally got today LOL I heard such good things about it and they offer such great packages that I decided what the hell. It didn't hurt half as bad as The Morpheus, so I was totally happy about that and I can't wait to see the results. Every time I have appointment with Melanie I look forward to seeing her. She does such a wonderful job at everything she does for me and I wouldn't dream about seeing anyone else. Not only do I look at her as my talented aesthetician that makes me feel beautiful, but as a friend that I can laugh and feel comfortable with. It's such a crazy feeling to see yourself aging and to start noticing things that you don't really like or that you want to change about your body and VIP Plastic Surgery has not only made me feel so comfortable about going in and talking about my issues but they do such a great job with every procedure I've had done that not only will I go there for everything in the future but I feel like family when I'm there. Thank you Dr. Khorsandi and Melanie for always making me feel so special and beautiful"- V.M. / Yelp / Oct 17, 2019
"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
DO I Qualify ?
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.
The Treatment Techniques
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 concentrated 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 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 absorbed, we will remove the serum and cleanse your skin.
After Your Treatments
Following your microneedling with PRP treatment appointment, 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 powerful PRP serum, the healing process and overall skin rejuvenation will 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 treated skin safe. Final results are usually seen within several weeks as the skin continues to repair and heal itself.
