Enjoy the benefits of microneedling at the ZO Skin Centre® San Gabriel/Pasadena, CA. Microneedling is an excellent collagen-inducing treatment for men and women of all skin types. Our experienced nurse practitioner can also extract your blood for a microneedling treatment with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to further rejuvenate your skin. To perform our microneedling treatments, we use the EndyMed's Instensif Radio-Frequency (RF) Microneedling Technology. You can go deeper into the skin with microneedling and the application of PRP.
As an anti-aging treatment for wrinkles and lax skin or for help with the appearance of scars, microneedling is a versatile and therapeutic aesthetic skin care treatment. Schedule your skin analysis and consultation today to get started.
Instead of the term microneedling, you may have heard of the vampire facial treatment or vampire facelift. Sounds intimidating, right? Some say that this treatment gets its name due to the appearance the blotted PRP will give your skin. Coined by patients as a "vampire" facial treatment, this is mainly because some are shocked to see the blood on their face in the mirror. Rest assured that we will remove the PRP serum, cleanse your skin, and have you looking your best before leaving our office. We also have a suite for you to freshen up and/or reapply your makeup before departure.
Dry skin, uneven skin tone, rough texture, age spots, loose skin, wrinkles on the face, neck, and chest are all characteristics of skin that would benefit from a microneedling treatment with PRP. Candidates with sun damage and acne scars will find that the microneedling process is very rewarding to the skin as well.
What to Expect@headingTag>
In a private treatment room, we will draw your blood for the PRP collection to take place while you receive your microneedling session. One of our medical staff will take the vial of blood to our lab so it can begin the separation process in a centrifuge. Your stem cells, platelets, and growth factors will then be condensed into a platelet-rich plasma. Meanwhile, you will be relaxing in the treatment chair receiving your microneedling treatment on your skin. The microneedling device (a state-of-the-art, handheld technology) will produce minuscule holes in your skin, which opens pores up just enough to start the cell regeneration process. Starting at your forehead and working all the way around your face, we will glide it across your skin in a back-and-forth motion. The tiny needles will not damage your skin. It will instead brilliantly bolster your ability to produce skin-firming collagen. Once the PRP is ready, it will be applied to your face. You can expect to see some bruising, swelling, and redness in your skin after the treatment normal reactions. It may take several weeks for you to see the end result. Your skin will need time to repair itself and heal.
