Additional Information

Vampire Facial The Vampire Facial is designed to improve the tone and texture of your complexion so it is smooth and rosy. This minimally invasive treatment can also improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The Vampire Facial starts with microneedling, and then PRP serum is massaged into your face. It may take several months before you begin to see the effects of the Vampire Facial as your skin builds new tissue and collagen.

Procedure: 

1. Isolate PRP from your blood. Our staff will draw blood from your arm then use a centrifuge to isolate the platelets.

2. Applying and coating the PRP on the face

3. Microneedling to help the skins cells turnover and to push the PRP deep into the skins layers. 

4. Recovery and maintenance. Depending on your condition and goals you may be sent home with products and therapies to continue. If you have acne or scarring it may be recommended you return for regular facials.

Microneedling

Collagen Induction Therapy

ABOUT MICRONEEDLING

If over-the-counter skin care products are no longer proving effective consider Ohio Stem Cells skin rejuvenation treatments such as micro needling. Microneedling uses many fine needles to effectively and safely make micro-injuries in the skin. The micro-injuries prompt the natural production of elastin and collagen, two nutrients that boost the health and appearance of your complexion. Often performed with other skin treatments, such as vitamin serums or platelet-rich plasma (PRP), microneedling may help minimize pores, stretch marks, and scars. Make an appointment for a consultation at Ohio Stem Cell to learn more about the results of micro needling and how to personalize your procedure for your skin needs and goals.

IDEAL CANDIDATES

It's possible you could be a candidate for micro needling treatments if you experience mild to moderate complexion problems, acne, scarring,  rough skin texture or low elasticity. Collagen induction therapy procedures may also reduce the look of scars, stretch marks, and pores. You should be willing to wait before seeing the results of your microneedling procedure because the elastin and collagen require time to have an impact on the complexion; however, you will have results that look natural and gain better overall skin health.

PROCEDURE TECHNIQUE

Microneedling is performed in a treatment room in around 30 – 60 minutes with numbing cream if requested; however, most patients feel little or no pain and discomfort. The areas of skin being addressed will be cleaned before the handpiece is evenly passed over the treatment area. Once the microneedling is performed, a treatment, such as PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or a serum with a vitamin infusion may be applied so the nutrients can penetrate deeper into the skin. A moisturizer selected for your skin type will be massaged in along with sunscreen because the treated skin will be more sensitive following the procedure.

WHAT TO EXPECT

You may have some redness and swelling for around one day; however, this should subside quickly on its own. It can take around 1 – 2 months as the elastin and collagen supply increases until you notice significant changes in the appearance and health of your skin. You should schedule around 4 – 6 follow-up sessions performed every 4 – 6 weeks for optimal outcomes and lasting skin benefits.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How much does microneedling cost?
The cost for microneedling will depend on what's included in your treatment plan. 


What exactly is microneedling?
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive procedure to tighten and rejuvenate your skin. A natural fibrous protein, collagen helps your skin stay smooth, supple, and firm. Over time, your natural supply of collagen is reduced, and your skin gets thin and loses elasticity. Microneedling creates tiny skin wounds. These micro-injuries prompt your skin to generate new skin cell growth and increase collagen production. After a short recovery period, your complexion appears brighter, firmer, and healthier.


Can I combine other treatments with microneedling?
In the process of microneedling, channels are made that help other treatments reach the lower layers. That's why microneedling is often done before other skin treatment, such as special serums or PRP (platelet-rich plasma). Microneedling plus PRP has become known as the Vampire Facial. In your initial consultation,our staff will discuss which treatments would enhance your micro needling and which would most benefit your skin.


How many treatments are recommended for optimal results?
Most patients get 3 – 6 microneedling treatments to achieve optimal results. Although, how many sessions you require will vary based on the condition of your skin and your goals. Microneedling may be safely done every 4 – 6 weeks. In your initial consultation, we  will be able to estimate the number of sessions you might want after assessing your skin and listening to your goals. When your skin goals are reached, we may suggest scheduling touch-up sessions every six months.


Is microneedling safe for everyone?
For the most part, microneedling is appropriate for all skin tones and types. Skin injuries created by microneedling are so minor that there are very few side effects afterward. Microneedling can be performed on most skin areas, including the face, neck, arms, thighs, chest, and lower legs. Microneedling isn't recommended if you've used Accutane within the last 2 – 3 months, plus if you have an active skin infection, herpes simplex, or open wound. Additionally, you might not be able to get microneedling if you're nursing, pregnant, or getting radiation therapy.

ISOLATING THE MAGIC FROM YOUR BLOOD

First, the physician draws your blood from your arm (just like getting a blood test done).

Then, using a centrifuge, the physician isolates platelets from that blood (platelet-rich plasma or PRP)–all within about 10 minutes in the office!

Coating and Soaking Your Face with Blood-Derived Growth Factors

These growth factors then activate multipotent stem cells already in the skin (tricking them into “thinking” there’s been an injury and new younger tissue should generated).
