Your skin, only better.
Treat yourself to the latest regenerative facial, and transform your skin from dull and tired to vibrant, youthful and glowing.
The PRP facial is an incredible anti-aging treatment, extremely beneficial for acne breakouts, and for reducing facial scarring.
What is a PRP Microneedling Facial?
Facial Rejuvenation with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is sometimes called the Vampire Facial, because it uses your own growth factors to enhance your skin. It amplifies your body’s own healing power, triggered by platelets and growth factors borrowed from your own blood. This medical-grade cosmetic facial stimulates your stem cells to help you to grow new collagen and blood vessels, repair and regenerate damaged skin, and give your skin a healthy, firmer and youthful-looking appearance.
What are the Benefits?
The treatment uses your own platelets to trigger new collagen production, resulting in tighter, smoother and younger-looking skin.
Over the next weeks and months, your stem cells and fibroblasts respond by producing new collagen.
You can expect to see a brighter more even complexion, smaller pores, reduced hyperpigmentation and dark spots, and minimized fine lines. If you are interested in the treatment of acne, you should see a reduced lesion number and severity, as well as diminished scarring.
How does the PRP Microneedling Facial work?
The first phase of the procedure involves drawing a small amount of your own blood and isolating the platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a procedure that only takes a few minutes.
Then after cleaning and numbing your skin, we use a microneedling device to create many tiny porous channels in the skin. The PRP is applied to the skin during the microneedling process, where it is delivered deep into the dermal layer of the skin — activating your body’s own healing mechanisms to lay down new healthy collagen and elastin.
The microneedling procedure tricks the skin into thinking that it has received an injury. Your stem cells respond to repair and heal the “injury” by growing new collagen, blood vessels and fatty tissue, which results in younger-looking skin. The results last about nine months to two years, and can be enhanced by further treatments.
What is the experience like?
Immediately after your procedure, your face will contain a slight amount of blood and may appear “sunburned” for 24-72 hours. After 2-3 days, the outer layer of your skin will start to peel. Similar to a chemical peel, this procedure allows for the removal of old dead cells and reveals fresh glowing new skin beneath. The best results, however, are yet to come! The effects of this procedure grow over the next 2-3 months as your body lays down new tissue.

No, the amount of blood drawn is too small to cause any physical distress.
You can be planning pregnancy, but it is not recommended if you are actively pregnant or breastfeeding.
Immediately after your procedure, your face will contain a slight amount of blood and may appear “sunburned” for 24-72 hours. After 2-3 days, the outer layer of your skin will start to peel. Most people find they can resume their normal skincare routine after 3 days.
Use only gentle cleansers. Do not use makeup for 2-3 days. You may use a gentle moisturizer, but nothing with AHA/BHA acids or vitamin C until the peeling has subsided. Bring a hat with you, and wear a hat (for sun protection) during your recovery time.
Unprotected sun exposure damages skin and collagen, which is exactly what we are rebuilding. So you should avoid the sun completely for 3-4 days after the treatment, and use high-quality sunscreen whenever you are outdoors to maximize your results.
We recommend you bring a hat to the treatment, so that you can wear it home for sun protection. Continue to wear a hat while your skin recovers from the procedure, and continue to use high-quality sunscreen to maximize your results.
