An Alternative to the Vampire Facial – Microneedling
Similar to laser skincare treatments, microneedling stimulates new collagen growth for smoother, younger-looking skin by safely and precisely creating “micro-injuries” to the skin using a sterile dermaroller. A dermaroller is a beauty device comprised of numerous micro-needles that roll over the skin to generate superficial wounds. When the dermaroller creates tiny pinpricks on the skin, the body will trigger new collagen synthesis to heal the wounds, therefore invigorating the skin and reducing unsightly imperfections.
At Wrinklesaway, we aim to provide the most comfortable experience for all of our aesthetic procedures. Prior to microneedling, we might suggest a dermaplane exfoliation to cleanse the skin of all makeup, dirt, or oil build-up and provide our trained technicians a flawless surface to work with. We will then apply a numbing cream to ease any discomfort created by the dermaroller. The microneedling procedure itself lasts about 30-60 minutes, depending on the anatomical area, using state-of-the-art micro-sized needle tip pens.
Men and women who are looking to improve their appearance should give dermarolling a try. This non-invasive cosmetic procedure has been proven effective for all the following skin
- Acne scars
- Discoloration or hyperpigmentation
- Large pores
- Sun damage
- Reduced skin elasticity
- Stretch marks
Why Choose a Dermaroller for Acne Scars?
Dermarolling is especially useful for acne scar reduction. Topical ointments, such as salicylic acid or deep chemical peels, can be too harsh for sensitive skin types, causing dryness and flaking. Home remedies that employ natural ingredients are a great alternative, but require months of routine application to show results. Microneedling is a gentle treatment for acne scars because it uses your body’s own immune system to reduce blemishes. The superficial trauma created by the dermaroller prompts the skin’s self-repair mechanism to produce new collagen and rejuvenate the skin. The results are reduced acne scarring, smaller pores, tighter skin, even skin tone, and much more.
What is a Vampire Facial?
A platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial, better known as the infamous vampire facial, is a minimally-invasive, non-surgical cosmetic procedure that stimulates collagen growth in the skin through the use of the client’s own plasma. Performed by certified aesthetic physicians or dermatologists, vampire facials involve the extraction of the client’s blood, which is centrifuged to separate the plasma. Plasma is what’s injected back into the client’s skin to promote new collagen growth.
Microneedling provides the same results as a PRP facial by pricking the skin to trigger the wound-healing process. Both cosmetic procedures are great for eliminating acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and other superficial imperfections. For deep wrinkles or loss of skin elasticity, we recommend Botox injections or hand rejuvenation treatments. These aesthetic treatments are more beneficial for targeting stubborn flaws due to the natural aging process.
