Microneedling with PRP: Kourtney Kardashian’s blog shares the process

microneedling with PRP in Washington DCmicroneedling with PRP before and after Washington DCLove them or hate them, one thing we can agree on is that the Kardashians have really good skin. Kim and Kourtney swear by the virtues of the Vampire Facial (aka Microneedling with PRP) for flawless skin.

Microneedling is a non-invasive procedure that reduces the signs of aging, minimizes scarring, boosts collagen production, reduces hyperpigmentation and pore size, prevents premature aging, treats stretch marks, minimizes the appearance of age spots, helps improve texture and improves the appearance of rosacea.

Combining micro-needling with the body’s own PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma derived from your own blood) is used to kick-start the healing process. The rejuvenation action that is started by the micro-channels is dramatically enhanced by the growth factors contained in the PRP.

The Difference Choosing a Top-Rated DC Plastic Surgeon Can Make

Choosing a top-rated DC plastic surgeon can be difficult, but don’t be fooled by all the choices out there.

With the increasing demand for plastic surgery, there has also been an increase in doctors, dentists and cosmetic surgeons entering the field of plastic surgery despite lacking the experience of top-rated plastic surgeons. We hope this article will help you choose.

Many believe that due to the rapid rise in demand, regulations haven’t caught up to industry practices. After all, there are extremely strict standards for surgeons

performing procedures such as joint replacement, yet there is virtually no oversight when it comes to cosmetic surgical procedures.

Questions are being raised about whether these procedures are properly supervised, as plastic surgeons are being called on to fix others’ shoddy work. There are countless examples of practitioners performing outside of their areas of expertise resulting in botched plastic surgeries and medical emergencies. You can read more about this subject here.

One Illinois woman, a mother of six, died after a complication arose during her surgery that her doctor was not prepared to handle. Prior to this incident, two of this doctor’s previous patients had been hospitalized with life threatening circumstances following their surgeries.

Some doctors, nurses or cosmetic surgeons will perform procedures at unlicensed facilities or spas- like the European Tanning Club in Michigan- where there have even been reports of lip injections resulting in extreme medical emergencies.

Not only are the practitioners who perform these procedures ill-equipped to handle emergencies, but patients who experience a botched or poorly performed surgery will face additional costs and additional surgical procedures. This points to the importance of finding a board certified top-rated DC plastic surgeon for your upcoming procedure.
