About Microneedling with PRP
The microneedling with PRP facial is a unique, nonsurgical, minimally invasive procedure utilizing microneedling with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) to help erase wrinkles and improve skin texture, tone, and acne scars. This technique is also commonly known as the "Vampire Facial." At Pura Vida Body & Mind Spa, the PRP is taken from your own blood and can either be applied topically or injected to rejuvenate and improve your skin or scars. Microneedling causes minor trauma to the skin, allowing for the topically applied PRP to be absorbed over the treated areas. PRP activates growth factors that stimulate improved blood flow and angiogenesis (new blood vessel formation), and promotes collagen and elastin production that leaves a fresher and younger glow to your skin. Our Fleming Island and Jacksonville, FL patients love the benefits they get from receiving this treatment.
You may benefit from a microneedling with PRP facial if you have mild to moderate skin issues, such as the following:
- Dark circles under the eyes
- Forehead and smile lines
- Areas with deeper, more severe wrinkles such as the neck, décolleté, and backs of the hands
- Stretch marks
- Acne scars and pitting

"This was the spa day I never knew I needed. Everything was perfect. I had so much stress and tension on my shoulders and neck but it was all released by amazing hands. The salt cave was a first for me and definitely an experience. Dressing and lounge rooms were beautiful and extremely clean. I made a return appointment before my visit ended and receive a great discount on my next massage. I can’t wait to bring my sister from out of town here for some much needed girl time."- I.G. / Facebook / Nov 03, 2019

What to Expect
Microneedling is completed in a private treatment room in about 30 – 60 minutes with numbing cream or a local anesthesia if preferred, but patients generally report mild or no discomfort. The skin being treated will be cleansed before the handpiece is passed evenly over the chosen areas. After the microneedling is complete, the topical PRP treatment will be applied to the treated area for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin. A protective moisturizer will be applied, along with UV protection since your skin will be sensitive after the treatment.
You may experience mild swelling and redness for about a day after the treatment, but this should fade naturally. It may take about 1 – 2 months as the collagen and elastin levels increase before you see visible improvements in the health and appearance of your complexion. You should plan to get about 4 – 6 maintenance treatments every 4 – 6 weeks for ideal results and long-lasting skin health.
