Microneedling With Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Sometimes called a “vampire facial” for its use of the patient’s own blood, microneedling that adds platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a naturally rejuvenating procedure that gives standard microneedling an important boost. Microneedling is a useful non-invasive procedure for treating minor skin imperfections or evidence of aging. When combined with PRP, your microneedling treatment moves to a larger scale of rejuvenation. Dr. Ben Talei and the staff at Beverly Hills Center for Plastic & Laser Surgery offer microneedling with PRP treatments for our patients.
Platelet-rich plasma contains concentrated growth and healing factors that can jump-start the body’s repair processes. A small amount of the patient’s own blood is drawn and then spun in a centrifuge to separate all the various products. The plasma is then injected into the face after your microneedling treatment to add these concentrated growth factors directly into your skin. The healing and repair process already stimulated by microneedling is given a significant boost, as well as provided with new material to aid healing.
Beverly Hills Vampire Facials
PRP vampire facials are popular because of their minimally invasive nature and the negligible risk of rejection of the PRP growth factors since they are from the patient’s own body. The addition of PRP to microneedling is sometimes prescribed for skin with moderate to severe acne, acne scarring or other blemishes. Dr. Talei and the Beverly Hills Center staff can determine which microneedling method will best serve your needs.
Microneedling with platelet-rich plasma treatment can be used as a standalone option or as part of a complete, specialized treatment regimen tailored to your unique skincare needs. As with any cosmetic or other type of procedure, each patient receives a medical evaluation and consultation to consider their exact needs. Dr. Talei will hear your concerns and review your skincare needs before crafting your personal treatment protocol.
