VAMPIRE FACIAL ® (MICRONEEDLING)

ABOUT

Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure.

Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves a device containing fine needles. These needles puncture skin and create small dermal injuries. The punctures trigger the skin’s natural recovery process, producing new elastin and collagen to repair the small wounds.

HOW IT WORKS

After a detailed consultation and treatment plan has been developed we will begin your series of treatments. You will be numbed prior to treatment with a special compounded cream. The numbing cream allows for a more comfortable treatment. There are 3 phases to wound healing.

  • Phase 1: Inflammation
    • Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
  • Phase 2: Proliferation
    • The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
  • Phase 3: Remodeling
    • The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.

HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM A SKINPEN TREATMENT:

  • A plan for optimal results. Your physician may recommend a course of procedures based on your individual goals. Maintenance of your procedure might require multiple treatments.
  • A comfortable procedure. Based on your needs, your physician will likely apply a topical numbing agent to the treatment area.
  • A short procedure time. The treatment will likely take about 30 minutes.
  • A mild sensation. Most patients report feeling only the slight vibration of SkinPen during the procedure.
  • Minimal post-procedure effects. The skin will appear slightly pink to red immediately post-procedure, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn. Additionally, the most common treatment responses experienced were dryness, rough skin, tightness, redness, itching, peeling, discomfort, tenderness, and burning. These conditions resolved over time without any further complications.
