FORD MD Glow Facial
Dr. Ford pioneered a new “FORD MD Glow Facial" technique second-to-none. (AKA vampire Facial) Excellent for dark under eye circles, fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, discoloration, acne, acne scarring and resurfacing the skin, this customizable facial combines platelet rich plasma treatment, injection of concentrated PRP into “trouble spots" and derma-pen microneedling. The end result is a more clear, tighter and brighter complexion through activation of your dermal stem cells. At the end of each treatment, we use the Ford MD organic Neuro Peptide serum to further promote healing and seal in results.
The first step is the collection of a blood sample, and application of a customized numbing cream to your face. Next, we spin the blood sample in a specialized centrifuge machine for isolation of the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). While the PRP is being carefully extracted, your face will be gently prepped and cleansed with the FORD MD Alpha Beta cleanser. Now you’re set to begin! Each treatment area is first lathered with the newly extracted PRP and then treated with the micro-needling derma-pen. The process is thorough and covers every inch of the treatment area. Though you should plan to be here for an hour, the actual Facial only takes about 10 minutes. At the end of the procedure we apply the FORD MD Neuro Peptide Growth Factor serum and organic aloe vera to both sooth your skin and jumpstart the healing process.
It will take about 24 hrs of downtime before you're ready to hit the streets, depending on how much inflammation was buried in your skin. You'll emerge from treatment a bit red, almost like a sunburn, which means post-procedure sunscreen and vigilant moisturizing is highly recommended, along with staying out of the sun for a few days. Dr. Ford recommends using his skin care with the treatment and after to really give your skin the boost it needs to keep heading in the right direction.
Applying gentle makeup is ok after the first 48 hours.
Are you a candidate?
The answer is probably.. YES.
Do you have premature wrinkles? High levels of solar damage, acne scarring, or just want an even tone and fresher appearance to your skin?
The only time you should not do any PRP treatment is if you have a history of blood diseases, including clotting or bleeding disorders, you should not seek PRP treatment.
As far as risks go, there aren't as many as you might think. In fact the only risk you really run is bruising at the time of the venipuncture (blood draw). Aside from the discomfort of a blood draw and bruising from injection or micro-needling. The glow facial is extremely safe, as it is your body's own blood being recycled.
How much does it cost?
Dr. Ford offers this treatment for a killer price, typically $1000+ at other facilities, we only charge $800 per session, savings right off the bat!
If you purchase our Extreme Glow Up Package you will save even more! This amazing package is $2,100.00. This package includes 3 Glow facials, which is great because Dr. Ford recommends doing three Glow Facials back to back (every two weeks - 1 month) for the maximized results, though you will see a major difference in your skin just after one treatment. This will be good for clients who have acne, acne scarring, melasma, wrinkles, and also overall skin maintenance if you would like to space them out a bit.
This package also Includes 1 FORD MD Neuro Peptide Growth Factor Serum, 1 FORD MD Alpha Beta cleanser, 1 FORD MD Retinol Serum. You can read more information on his skin care products Here.
How many sessions do I need?
It will vary with each patient. Dr. Ford recommends doing a series of three treatments 2 weeks apart for people that have very unfavorable skin, but some patients will get the results they were looking for just after one treatment. It is best to book a consultation with Dr. Ford to better discuss your needs and goals.
