Skin Pen with PRP
Microneedling with Skin Pen Precision and PRP (Also called a Vampire Facial) can improve your complexion, improve the appearance of wrinkles on the neck, and improve the appearance of acne scars. It will reveal smooth, healthy skin that glows from the inside out! The skin pen creates thousands of micro skin punctures to stimulate the skin’s natural wound healing process to stimulate tissue remolding without causing scar tissue formation. Adding PRP (platelet-rich plasma) uses components from your blood to stimulate new collagen and rejuvenate the skin.

What to expect during treatment:
Topical numbing will be applied for 15 minutes to help with discomfort. While numbing, our medical professionals will draw a small amount of your blood which is then spun to separate the red blood cells from the PRP. The most common sensation during the procedure is a warm, scratching feeling as the device is moved around the face. Your PRP will be applied topically to penetrate into the deep layers of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural healing response. This procedure is very well tolerated by most people. Typically, appointments take one hour
What to expect after treatment:
It is normal for your skin to appear red and flushed for the next 24 hours. On days 1-3 your face may feel like you have a sunburn, be tight, dry, and sensitive to the touch. It is recommended to stay out of the sun for the first week. Avoid cosmetics for the first 24 hours along with strenuous exercises, jacuzzi, sauna, and steam baths. Results typically appear within 4-8 weeks and 3-6 treatments are recommended, spaced one month apart.
