microneedling services in tampaThe PRP Facial, a.k.a. the Vampire Facial, became widely known when Kim Kardshian posted the dramatic pictures of her procedure back in March, 2013. That is almost four years ago! Since then, the PRP Facial has become a popular service at the spa. This is not just thanks to Kim.  The PRP Facial delivers outstanding results for all skin tones and types.*

For those not familiar with the PRP Facial, it is micro needling with platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) infused into the skin during the procedure. In a PRP facial, the plasma taken from your own blood and infused into the deeper layers of the dermis during a micro needling session. Micro needling creates thousands of micro wounds on the surface of the skin. These micro-wounds cause the body to go into a healing process. Micro needling by itself generates beautiful results. Enhancing it with PRP just increases the benefits.

The PRP Facial has gone from being an exotic facial to one that can be scheduled at many spas. This is a testament to the effectiveness of the facial and micro needling in general. It is truly an effective next generation facial.

Wound Care Origins

For over 20years, PRP has been used in clinical applications for the healing of wounds. When used for healing wounds in a medical setting, PRP enhances the healing process and inhibits infections. When PRP is used in a micro needling session, it enhances the healing process in much the same way. The same properties that help wound healing are also beneficial when trying to heal acne, reduce stretch marks or restore your youthful glow. This is really an ingenious way of taking a medical application and turning it into a cosmetic application. The Wound Research article below goes into greater detail on the properties that make PRP an effective treatment on wounds.
