The micro-injury that is created with this process allows for skin rejuvenation, especially with this treatment is further enhanced by applying the client's own platelet rich plasma (PRP) to the skin. It is referred to commonly as the "Vampire" facial. This helps the tissue repair itself with peptides and growth factors native to the client from the natural healing process. This procedure aids with collagen stimulation, improved fine lines, decreased pore size, improved tone and texture of the skin, and reduced acne scarring. This is not like using dermal rollers at home because these tools are not sterile and they create larger injury to the skin, leaving areas of tearing and damage.
Patients can expect noticeable results immediately after a treatment and ongoing for up to a year (especially with maintenance in between). Redness, like a mild sunburn, can be expected for up to 24 hours post procedure with some skin tightness as well.
