The PRP Facial

Commonly known as the Vampire Facial, a quick, non-surgical procedure that produces collagen growth with rapid recovery. We use your own blood to help promote the healthy activity of your skin cells. The PRP is derived from the serum portion of the blood, which contains platelets. The platelets contain high levels of growth factors, which, when applied to the skin, will stimulate cell turnover.

The DermaCenter™ staff is committed to the highest level of customer service, and wants its clients to be informed of their options.

What is a PRP Facial?

PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma, we draw your blood, spin it to separate the Platelet-Rich Plasma from the RBC’s. We then take this and use it as a serum for our Microneedling treatment with @theskinpen (only FDA microneedling device in the USA). This allows for the serum to penetrate deeper into the skin.

What does PRP do?

PRP has growth factors that help stimulate collagen and elastin production which thickens and tightens thinning skin which then helps with fine lines and wrinkles. It also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties that help the healing process so there is less downtime.

What is Microneedling?

This is a treatment that uses 14 tiny little needles to make micro-controlled injuries to the skin that stimulates collagen. It was originally invented for acne scaring. It also helps with fine lines and wrinkles, skin tone and texture, hyperpigmentation, and can stimulate hair growth for the brows.

Is this treatment instant gratification?

Yes and no. Once your skin has healed (about 4-7 days from treatment) your skin will have a nice glow. However, collagen takes roughly 3 to 12 weeks to remodel so this treatment is done is a series of 3 to 6 treatments (roughly 1 month apart).

Lots of Medical Spas use different Microneedling devices. What Microneedling device should I use?

Only use the Skin Pen Microneedling Device!!! No alternatives. It is the ONLY FDA approved Microneedling Device in the US. That means that other skin pens are not regulated- infections & diseases could be passed from patient to patient.

Does it hurt?!

We numb you for about 15-20 minutes. The forehead is a little tender but tolerable. The cheeks I find to be ticklish and almost feel like a cat licking your face (No? Never had a cat lick your face? You’re missing out… but we can get into that another time). Afterwards it does feel like a moderate sunburn. We do give you products to sooth your skin while it is healing.

Can I wear make up?

I would prefer you to not where any make up for 48 hours.
