Have you received one of the most popular treatments in the beauty industry? Microneedling with PRP, also known as the “vampire facial,” is trending throughout the celebrity world. From Kim Kardashian to Angelina Jolie, these celebrities are all about this natural anti-aging treatment for glowing skin. What better treatment to get for Halloween than the spookiest of them all?! RMA is offering a package of 3 microneedling with PRP sessions for $1500 ($450 in savings) until the end of October.
We put our optician at Total Eye Care Centers, Roe Masso, to the microneedling test. She takes us step-by-step through her microneedling with PRP procedure to give you a real-life experience of what an in-office treatment would be like in the video above.
Step 1: Tracy draws blood from Roe’s arm, and then spins it in a machine called a centrifuge, which separates the blood cells and the platelet-rich plasma, more commonly known as PRP.
Step 2: Tracy will then microneedle the platelet-rich plasma back into the Roe’s face to restore volume and elastin. The plasma is essential to this treatment as it acts as a booster to increase the skin’s collagen and elastin. It also helps to promote the penetration from the microneedling process for optimal results.
Step 3: After the treatment, the remainder of the plasma is applied as a topical to enhance the treatment. It also helps prevent inflammation during the post-treatment healing process.
PRP is also a very common practice in sports injury to assist with blood flow to a certain area. PRP can be used for tennis elbow, rotator cuff injury, hamstring injury, and certain types of arthritis. Celebrities like Tiger Woods, Alex Rodriguez, and Kobe Bryant have had PRP injections to aide in the recovery process of injuries.
So, why should you get this treatment? Maybe you are interested in aiding the anti-aging process, or brightening your skin. Some people who have rosacea or acne scarring could be good candidates for microneedling with PRP as well. It also can be used to minimize fine lines, soften wrinkles, improve the appearance of under eye circles, and promote hair growth.
This procedure is safe in that you are not injecting a foreign substance into your body, just your body’s own blood. This is a pure way to boost collagen. It is recommended to wear sunscreen afterwards. There is little to no downtime with microneedling or microneedling with PRP.
