You may have heard of the popular bloody facial that Kim Kardashian helped make famous.

And while you might think this is a procedure to make you look like one of the gorgeous Cullens from Twilight, it’s actually a fast-growing trend that has to do with Microneedling and… well, blood.

The Microneedling Experience

You’re noticing a bit of loose skin on your face. Of course, you’re getting older. You’re a bit past the age of 30 and, as is natural to all who walk this earth, your face has not only stopped producing collagen, but the volume of it is actually decreasing.

That means wrinkles, maybe. Looser skin. And overall, less glow and radiance. It’s not a huge deal, but it is a deal. You’d like to do something about it, but you don’t want to commit to an expensive procedure with a long recovery time.

That’s where many skin rejuvenation techniques come in, but especially Microneedling. Using small needles to puncture your face and stimulate collagen and elastin production, you’re in and out of the office within the time it takes to get lunch.

And the best part is you recover so fast–the only downtime is a day with redness in the face.

Make It Even Better With PRP

PRP and Microneedling is a thing? Yes, and it’s amazing. PRP takes the Microneedling process up to 11, by introducing Platelet Rich Plasma–that magic stuff that’s filled with growth factors that some are even using to turn back the clock on their hairline.

By puncturing your skin, Microneedling creates channels for the PRP to be absorbed by the body. Meanwhile, the PRP hastens and makes more effective the already fast and effective healing process that makes your face look so great after a Microneedling treatment.

The two go perfect together, like peanut butter and jelly.
