Blood facials are a great way to boost collagen production and help with volume loss in
areas that might otherwise be difficult to inject with filler, like under eyes and neck lines. Microneedling procedures take about 60 minutes, depending on the area treated and the desired results.
Benefits of blood facials from Grace + Beauty:
Blood facials, also known as microneedling with PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is a cosmetic procedure that combines microneedling and the use of PRP to improve the appearance and texture of the skin. It is also known by other names such as "vampire facial" or "vampire therapy."
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure in which a device called a dermaroller or a dermapen with tiny needles is used to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body's natural healing response, promoting the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for maintaining healthy and youthful-looking skin. The procedure is typically performed on the face, but it can also be done on other areas of the body.
PRP, on the other hand, is a substance derived from the patient's own blood. Blood is drawn from the patient and then processed to separate the platelet-rich plasma from other components. Platelets contain growth factors that are thought to enhance tissue regeneration and healing.
During a microneedling with PRP treatment, after the micro-injuries are created on the skin, the PRP is applied topically or injected into the treated area. The tiny channels created by the microneedling allow the PRP to penetrate deeper into the skin, where it can further stimulate collagen and elastin production.
The combination of microneedling and PRP is believed to have several benefits for the skin, including:
Improved skin texture and tone: Microneedling stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, leading to smoother, firmer, and more even-toned skin.
Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles: The increased collagen production can help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Scar improvement: Microneedling with PRP can help improve the appearance of certain types of scars, such as acne scars or surgical scars.
Enhanced skin rejuvenation: The growth factors present in PRP can further enhance the rejuvenation process by promoting cellular repair and regeneration.
Overall skin improvement: The procedure can help with various skin concerns, including hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and enlarged pores.
The number of sessions required depends on individual needs and desired results, but multiple treatments are often recommended to achieve optimal outcomes.
