Microneedling is a great alternative to laser skin resurfacing or cosmetic surgery if you are not yet prepared for one of those procedures. Microneedling aids in the production of collagen in order to improve the texture and tone of your skin, as well as rid of surface scars and fine wrinkles. It is highly anti-aging and stimulates your skin to heal itself. This long-lasting solution works with your body in order to naturally rejuvenate your skin.

How the Procedure is Performed
Microneedling involves the use of tiny needles that move at a high speed to make tiny holes in your skin. By penetrating your skin, microneedling stimulates your skin’s ability to heal itself. In that healing process, your body will produce collagen and elastin.

Microneedling is not as painful as it sounds – because the needles are moving at a high speed, penetration to your skin happens quickly, making it feel as if you are having sandpaper rubbed on you rather than feeling like you’re having needles poked into you.

About Vampire Facials & PRP Treatments

Vampire facials have gained a great deal of popularity with major celebrities such as Kim Kardashian who praise the effects of this type of facial. Vampire facials are able to rejuvenate the face entirely, leaving you with firmer and younger-looking skin. A vampire facial is a quick non-surgical procedure that brings together hyaluronic acid fillers and stem cells in order to rid of skin issues such as: wrinkles, loss of volume, texture, and overall complexion issues.

How the Procedure Is Performed
The first step of a vampire facial is to sculpt specific areas of the face using a hyaluronic acid filler. Next, the doctor will withdraw an amount of blood similar to that of a basic lab test. The doctor then places the blood into a centrifuge, where it spins at an extremely fast rate in order to separate the platelets from the other parts of your blood. Next, your separated platelets are activated and then injected back into your skin. Your face will be bloody, hence the name “vampire facial.”
