Micro injuries are used to stimulate the skin to produce its own natural collagen and elastin helping fine lines, acne scaring, and evens skin tone while leaving a youthful glow. FDA approved treatment for acne scars.
This therapy utilizes the micro channels created by the SkinPen treatment and allows the platelet rich plasma to penetrate the dermis to accelerate healing and the regeneration of cells. See Results >>

What is PRP?
Your blood is made up of four primary components: red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma and platelets. When the platelets in the plasma are concentrated, magic happens. To achieve concentrated levels of platelets in plasma, all four components of your blood are separated by density. Then, the platelets are injected into the plasma, excluding the red and white blood cells. PRP therapy is used to describe any application of PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, to benefit the body. In the context of anti-aging, platelet-rich plasma is either injected into your skin at specific depths according to your aesthetic needs or the “blood” is spread on top of your face during treatment. Eventually, the PRP is absorbed by your skin. This cuts the recovery time from microneedling down to nothing while speeding along the collagen production process.
Benefits of PRP With SkinPen
Around the age of 25, your body’s collagen production rate drops drastically. It continues to decline at a significant rate for the rest of your life unless you do something to stimulate its production rate. Moreover, the quality of the collagen produced drops. All of this results in visibly unhealthy skin.
Whether you’re dismayed by fine lines, moderate wrinkles or severe folds or you have other visible skin issues, there’s an excellent chance that a vampire facial will enhance the quality of your skin through increased collagen production. Collagen production is stimulated when skin cell trauma occurs. This occurs during a microneedling treatment when the minuscule needles penetrate the upper layers of your skin and the PRP is absorbed during the microneedling portion of your treatment.
As soon as your skin is penetrated, existing collagen starts to heal the skin. At the same time, your body starts to grow new, stronger, healthier collagen. This higher quality collagen takes a couple weeks to grow. However, you will notice immediate skin tightening. You’ll just notice that the results of your treatment continue to improve for several weeks after treatment.
Reduced Fine Lines and Wrinkle
Lines and wrinkles are among the most common reasons people seek a vampire facial. These common signs of aging are treated as cellular turnover is promoted. Old skin cells are recycled and new skin cells, collagen and elastin are formed. Fine lines and wrinkles are eliminated in part as your facial skin tightens naturally in response to the micro-injuries produced by treatment. The appearance of deeper folds is also diminished as hollow areas of your face are plumped up.
Tightens and Firms Skin
As you age, your skin starts to sag, but wrinkles and lines don’t always form. Facial skin often thins with age, and certain parts of the face, like the lips and cheeks, are likely to become noticeably thin and gaunt. Collagen plumps up the skin. Some people may use PRP to plump up their lips. Others use it to re-contour their cheeks without the need for an invasive medical procedure. Regardless of your skin insecurities, be sure to ask how PRP can help you achieve your ideal aesthetic goal.
Stregthens and Protects Skin
The stronger and thicker your skin is, the better protected the deeper layers of your skin are from outside irritants. A strong skin barrier also helps to retain moisture. Moreover, it helps to unclog your pores, making your skin more receptive to prescription moisturizers. The effects of PRP on pores are a little confusing because treatment can actually reduce the appearance of pores. However, you can actually benefit from the reduced appearance of pores and unclogged pores, making it easier to absorb prescription medications for the purpose of beauty enhancement.
Enhanced Skin Tone
If you have acne scars, surgical scars, scars from traumatic injury, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation and other forms of poor skin tone or texture, you can benefit from a facial enhanced with PRP. With old skin cells giving birth to new, healthy ones, you will be astounded by the mind-blowing improvement in the appearance of your skin just a few short days after one micro needling treatment with the use of PRP.
Fewer Treatments and Long Lasting Results
Some anti-aging treatments last only a week or two before you need to receive them again. Contrastingly, you only need to get a microneedling with PRP treatment every year or two to retain your youthful look. Even better, you need fewer treatments when PRP is used in conjunction with microneedling versus a traditional microneedling treatment to achieve your ideal aesthetic.
Skin rejuvenation typically takes four treatments, and each of these treatment sessions needs to be spaced six weeks apart. Acne scars can typically be healed in three to six treatment sessions. The number of treatments depends upon the severity of the acne.
PRP with microneedling is very beneficial for hair restoration in men and women experiencing hair loss.
