PRP Therapy with Microneedling at Elite Plastic Surgery

Microneedling with PRP—sometimes also known as a “vampire facial”—can have a dramatically positive impact on your skin. Also known medically as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy with microneedling, this nonsurgical treatment utilizes a compound extracted from your own blood, as is positively loaded with platelets, growth factors, and active proteins that help with tissue regeneration and injury healing.

PRP microneedling represents just one of many advanced aesthetic and wellness treatment options we offer, and we invite you to visit our Chandler or Phoenix locations, where you can explore the ways we can help you both look and feel your very best. To learn more about what PRP microneedling can do for you, reach out to Elite Plastic Surgery and set up your consultation with a team member today.

Customizing Your Treatment

To get even more impressive results, you can combine microneedling with the MicroPen® Elite with your PRP therapy treatment and create what is called the “vampire facial.” During this procedure, the microneedling process helps the PRP serum reach deeper into the skin for maximum impact. 

At Elite Plastic Surgery in Phoenix, our aesthetic team offers the vampire facial to help your skin produce healthier collagen, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, assist in tightening and toning your skin, and plump some of your facial skin loss. To learn more, reach out to Elite Plastic Surgery at our Phoenix or Chandler offices and set up your initial consultation with a helpful member of our aesthetics team today.

How PRP Therapy Works

Originally used in orthopedic medicine, reconstructive surgery, and dentistry, the principles of PRP therapy have been applied to plastic surgery for skin rejuvenation. A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and then spun in a special centrifuge until the stem cells, platelets, and growth factors are concentrated, which turns it into platelet-rich plasma (PRP). 

This prepared PRP is then applied to the face for 15 to 20 minutes as it stimulates the growth of new collagen and tissue in tandem with the microneedling treatment. The result will be a naturally youthful look with reduced fine lines, fewer wrinkles, and a generally more pronounced glow.

After Your PRP Microneedling Treatment

PRP microneedling stimulates collagen growth for facial rejuvenation and helps to effectively improve wrinkles and puffiness under the eyes while also enhancing the overall skin tone, texture, and elasticity.

For the first one to three days after your procedure, you may have some mild swelling, redness, and bruising. You’ll begin to see improvements in your skin about three to four weeks after your treatment. Results usually last for about six to 18 months. For better results, you can have multiple treatments scheduled every one to two months.

Your Natural Fountain of Youth

PRP therapy with microneedling is a great way to use your body’s natural regenerative abilities to rejuvenate your appearance and resolve issues like dark circles and puffiness under the eyes; reduce the presence of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, cheeks, and eyes; and leave your skin healthier, brighter, and firmer. Consider combining the vampire facial with another professional facial service, like a chemical peel or injectable wrinkle filler, for faster, more dramatic results.
