Microneedling & PRP
IT'S TIME TO GIVE BACK TO YOUR SKIN!
There are multiple ways to achieve smooth, healthy skin, and some of the most popular treatments at Cosmetic Lounge are microneedling and microneedling with PRP, also known as The Vampire Facial. These treatments are called mechanical peels and they are designed to remove the surface layers of skin while creating a mild stimulus of collagen, elastin and keratinocyte activity. Both treatments require a highly skilled technique that not only removes dead skin, but helps eliminate sun spots. Cosmetic Lounge will help assess which type of mechanical peel is right for you, your lifestyle and your budget.
Cosmetic Lounge recommends mechanical peels to:
- Improve skin softness
- Refresh skin texture and tone
- Diminish crepey skin
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Decrease appearance of acne scarring
- Restore a youthful glow
- Improve appearance of your face, eyes, mouth, neck, chest, hands
What to expect:
Microneedling and Microneedling with PRP therapy consists of multiple treatment sessions (approximately 45 minutes each) at four to six week intervals. During your procedure, an anesthetic will be applied and/or injected to the treatment area to minimize discomfort and your blood will be drawn.
After your treatment:
Immediately following your platelet-rich plasma skin rejuvenation, you may experience some swelling and tenderness on the treatment area, which will likely also be red. The swelling and redness usually lasts for 12 to 24 hours. Small bruises may also occur but should disappear within two or three days. It is after about three weeks that you will start to see noticeable improvements in your skin. Your skin tone and skin texture will keep improving over the following weeks and months as the treatment helps your skin develop new blood vessels.
