Microneedling & Vampire Facial In Chicago, IL

Microneedling has quickly become a popular treatment for improving the appearance of the skin. And a vampire facial takes it one step further by applying the patient’s own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to the face and absorbing it into the skin via microneedling.

MICRONEEDLING

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves creating tiny punctures in the skin using a device with fine needles. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing response, leading to increased collagen and elastin production.

Here's an overview of the microneedling process:

Preparation

  • The skin is cleaned and a topical numbing cream may be applied to minimize discomfort during the procedure.

Microneedling Treatment

  • A specialized device with fine needles, either a dermaroller or a motorized pen-like instrument, is gently rolled or pressed onto the skin.
  • The needles create tiny punctures, triggering the skin’s natural healing response.

Collagen and Elastin Production

  • The micro-injuries stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, proteins that contribute to the skin’s structure and elasticity.
  • Increased collagen helps to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars.

Product Penetration

  • Microneedling enhances the absorption of topical skincare products, including PRP, as the micro-channels created during the procedure allow for better penetration.

Post-Treatment Care

  • After the procedure, the skin may appear red, similar to a mild sunburn. Some individuals may experience slight swelling or minor pinpoint bleeding.
  • Patients are advised to follow specific post-treatment care instructions provided by Laser Skin & Wellness Center.

VAMPIRE FACIAL

A vampire facial is a cutting-edge procedure that uses the patient’s own blood to enhance the appearance of the skin, promoting a natural and youthful glow.
During a vampire facial, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and then spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood. The PRP is then applied to the face and absorbed into the skin through tiny micro-injuries created by a microneedling device. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing response, promoting collagen and elastin production, and improving the overall texture and tone of the skin.
The benefits of a vampire facial are numerous. Not only does it improve the skin’s appearance, but it also helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and sun damage. Additionally, the treatment can minimize pore size, improve skin elasticity, and enhance overall skin clarity.
