Microneedling devices have microscopic needles which cannot be seen that rapidly “aerate” the top layer of our scars to allow for PRP to get deep into the lower important layers of our skin so that our own PRP can heal the skin from within and regenerate your own fresh youthful skin thus removing unsightly scars.
The Microneedling device that Dr. Jen uses is Skin Pen® by Bellus Medical and she uses it in combination with your own PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) in a procedure called Vampire Facial®: during this short 45-minute procedure, Dr. Jen will apply a safe compounded painless numbing cream to your scars then will prepare your PRP in front of you. After the PRP is prepared, the Skin Pen will glide along with your scars while microscopic needles “aerate” your skin as our PRP is allowed to soak into all these microscopic puncture holes that the Skin Pen® created.
The patented Altar® cream for post-microneedling routine skincare is strongly recommended for the most beautiful of results. The Altar® cream is available for purchase from our office prior to leaving if you wish.
There is no downtime. There are redness and slight bleeding which is manageable with holding pressure. No bandages or bandaids required.
For 24 hours after Vampire Facial®, avoid strenuous exercise, alcohol intake, and exposure to extensive heat/sun.
