“Vampire facials” with platelet rich plasma (PRP)
One of the hottest trends on social media, so-called “Vampire facials” harness your body’s own healing powers to stimulate collagen production, rapid skin rejuvenation, and repair of skin at a cellular level. Platelet rich plasma (PRP)
is harnessed from your own body with a small blood draw, which is then processed in a centrifuge in our office while you relax comfortably. The concentrated materials in your blood that amplify your body’s healing powers are then delivered with a microneedling technique, so they are deposited into the deep layers of skin for maximum effect. The result is up to a 1000-fold increase in collagen and elastin and youthful, fresh skin.
Laser therapies, photofacials, and radiofrequency treatments
Many of the greatest breakthroughs in dermatology in recent years have resulted from harnessing the use of light and radiofrequency energies to treat the skin. Using lasers and other devices, Dr. Khrom and the team at Khrom Dermatology can treat a wide variety of skin conditions, such as:
- Scarring from acne or trauma
- Hyperpigmentation – freckles, age spots, melasma, and birthmarks
- Broken blood vessels
- Visible capillaries (telangiectasia)
- Redness in the skin
- Uneven skin tone or texture
- Stubborn pockets of fat
- Spider veins
- Loose skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
The way that different light and radiofrequency therapies work to treat these conditions varies by the wavelengths of light or energy that are used. For example, some laser therapies
are designed specifically to target redness, whereas others harness the power of light to kill the bacteria that cause acne. In body contouring and sculpting applications, light and energy can be used to either melt fat or destroy fat cells so that they do not return. Lasers can also be used to resurface the skin by stimulating the body’s natural healing response, which reveals younger, fresher skin that is more even in tone and texture. In short, many cosmetic concerns that we see at Khrom Dermatology have a laser or other energy-based treatment option thanks to exciting breakthroughs in technology! Dr. Khrom is an expert at choosing the right therapy options for you, based on your individual skin condition and desired results.
