Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Micro-needling Facials, (often referred to as a “Vampire” Facial), first gained popularity with celebs like Kim Kardashian, before becoming mainstream.
The treatment earned the nickname of “Vampire” because it uses Platelet-rich plasma (the client’s own blood plasma), during the treatment. Since then, all jokes aside, this needling treatment has become recognized as an all-natural approach to anti-aging.
PRP Facial Treatments are great for overall skin maintenance as well as helping to restore facial fullness, decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and diminish acne scarring and melasma.
What to Expect during a PRP Micro-needling Facial
At Institut’ DERMed Spa the client’s blood is drawn by Nurse Practitioner, Sabrina Peoples APRN, FNP-c, and placed inside a centrifuge device that will separate the red blood cells from the plasma. The plasma is the part that is used in the treatment. It is rich with platelets and growth factors and applied like a serum to the skin then micro-needled in. (Clients are given a topical anesthetic to help minimize any discomfort).
The PRP growth factors, along with other bioactive proteins in the plasma, work to stimulate and rejuvenate skin cells. New cells are produced, and collagen begins to form adding volume to the treated area. PRP uses your own body’s natural healing system to restore a more youthful look, which is unlike any other fillers that use synthetic substances. PRP can also be done on the hands, neck and chest for rejuvenation. Best results are achieved with a series of 3-4 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart with a maintenance treatment every 6-12 months afterwards.

P.R.P. HAIR RESTORATION TREATMENTS
PRP has also shown great success with hair restoration. The Integrity Hair Treatment program offered at Institut’ DERMed Spa combines an array of components to help battle hair loss, (for men and women), including amniotic fluid, PRP with biotin, micro needling and aftercare hair solution. Amniotic fluids contain natural proteins, nutrients and other growth factors that work with your PRP to stimulate hair follicles helping the growth of new healthy hair.
What to Expect during a PRP Hair Restoration Treatment:
During a session, your scalp will be cleansed, and you will be given a topical anesthetic to help minimize any discomfort. A small amount of blood is drawn and placed inside the centrifuge device that separates the red blood cells from the plasma. The Platelet Rich Plasma, plus biotin and amniotic fluid solution is then injected, and or micro needled into the scalp. These substances help to stimulate hair re-growth.
Consultation is required to determine if you are a likely candidate for hair restoration treatments, and the number of treatments required will vary based on the patient’s current status.
Typically 2-3 treatments every 3-6 months is the standard recommendation with a maintenance treatment every 6-12 months thereafter.
