What is Skin Needling & Vampire Facials?

The concept of Skin Needling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury to the skin our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones. Skin Needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism by creating micro-“injuries” in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis. Skin Needling is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy which is intended to smooth wrinkles, and improve depressed acne scarring.

Micro needling is process carried out with a Dermapen that is covered with numerous tiny needles. These needles penetrate the upper layers of skin to a depth of up to 3 mm (depending on the needle length used). This process has two major benefits. It effectively stimulates collagen formation at the same time as providing a clear channel for topical serums or your PRP Platelet Rich Plasma to be absorbed more effectively through the top layer (epidermis) of skin. Skin needling creates a very minor (almost microscopic) trauma which lasts for a short period of time. Your body perceives this as damage, which triggers the release of growth factors that, in turn, stimulate the production of elastin and collagen. By persistently triggering this healing process, you encourage your body to keep repairing until you have reached your ultimate outcome. When using your own PRP Platelet Rich Plasma AKA “VAMPIRE FACIAL” it is using your own body’s growth proteins to encourage this healing, and collagen and elastin growth at a faster and higher level. Skin needling may be conducted safely on all colours of skin and all types of skin. Topical anesthetic is applied pre treatment for patient comfort. Needling may feel similar to a microdermabrasion. Blood will be taken from vein for PRP Platelet Rich Plasma treatment

You may experience redness, warmth and slight irritation after the treatment. This is normal and will subside after 1 to 2 hours and will normally diminish within the same day or 24 hours post treatment. You may see slight redness after 24 hours but only in minimal areas or spots. You may also experience bruising and swelling, this can last anywhere from 5-14 days. Do not apply makeup to the treated area for 24 hours after the procedure. It is also recommended for at least 3 days post treatment to not use any Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Beta Hydroxy Acid, Retinol (Vitamin A), Vitamin C or anything perceived as “active” skincare, as this may prolong healing or cause more redness and irritation. It is also recommended to avoid any intentional and direct sunlight for 24 hours post treatment or attend gym environments. Sweating and gym environments are harmful, rife with bacteria, and may cause adverse reactions. If any discomfort is experienced post treatment Paracetamol can be taken.
