How to enhance your natural beauty? We know that it can be frustrating trying to find the best aesthetic procedure since there are so many options to choose from! At Butterfly Medical Spa we offer a variety of procedures including Laser treatments to Botox injections. However, we are incorporating to our practice the latest trend that has been used successfully for years to improve the appearance of fine wrinkles, scars, sun damage, and to help treat dark circles under the eyes. The treatment, Platelet-Rich Plasma is gaining popularity, due to its great results and organic nature. We use Plasma taken from the patient’s own blood, which means side effects are practically nonexistent because the body will not reject its own blood. It has also become popularly known as the “Vampire facial” thanks to many celebrities, including Kim Kardashian.
How does this procedure work? After drawing a small amount of blood, we place the drawn blood in a sterile tube, which is centrifuged to separate the different components of the blood (red and white cells) where the Plasma now contains a high concentrate of platelets, which is called Platelet Rich in Plasma (PRP). Platelets are the cells in our body that help tissue heal and grow new cells. When injected into specific areas of the skin, it boosts collagen, and regenerates tissue, creating tighter and smoother skin.
Combining PRP and Microneedling Microneedling, uses micro-needles to puncture the skin creating a controlled destruction of certain cells deep within the skin, this procedure triggers the body’s natural process to stimulate the collagen, another benefit of this procedure is how it prepares the skin to absorb topical treatments. Combined with the PRP these two therapies work in synergy to accelerate results.
What to expect after the treatment? Side effects after both procedures tend to be minimal, there might be some redness, swelling, slight bruising, or mild peeling. These side effects tend to disappear within the next few days after the treatment.
How many treatments will you need? Patients may need several treatments depending on their skin type. Advanced issues (scars or deep lines) may require additional treatments. The only way to determine how many treatment(s) you will need is by consulting with one of our specialists. Call us today to schedule your next appointment!
