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.
Microneedling with PRP Ideal Candidates

- 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
"My first time getting a hydra facial and WOW. I am so surprised about how much smoother and clearer my skin is! The staff was super kind to me and the service had no wait with my appointment. I loved how the person who did my facial was explaining the whole process for me. First they did an assessment of my skin with taking photos of the bacteria that there was under my top layer. Boy was I surprised at how much bacteria they was. They recommended the high intensity hydra facial which took about thirty minutes. First they cleaned my face, then steamed it and then applied a sucking type of device that cleaned and pulled all of my gunk and pores from my skin. It did tingle but it was a good tingle. The only place where they tried to put the device on my skin that didn’t work was my forehead because of my nerves the pressure was too strong. But my forehead wasn’t an area where I had acne. Mostly on my cheeks. After that, she recommended some products for my skin that I did buy and I have been using. They work FANTASTICALLY. She also told me to cut milk and dairy as much as possible due to the hormonal acne that I was having. So I did. Now to Oat milk and Coconut milk yogurt both Chobani that I LOVE. After the facial she showed me a mirror in a bright room and wow my acne scars have reduced dramatically and my skin has never been so smooth and clear. Next month I will definitely go back to this magical place. It also has massages and waxing if you’re interested in doing that."- M.I. / Yelp / Jul 09, 2020

"I absolutely love this spa and it’s staff. During my consultation, Jules and I discussed what my skincare goals were and decided on the Hydrafacial and IPL treatments (so thankful for these recommendations!) Melissa, my aesthetician, was the BEST and truly cared about skin and beauty. She helped me figure out a routine I can easily do at home and in the past month I have seen a significant change in my pore size, acne scars and wrinkles. The Hydrafacial leaves my skin feeling fresh and brighter. Sarah did my IPL treatment made a huge difference on broken blood vessels and my acne. Thank you to everyone at Pura Vida, can’t wait for my next appointment!"- S.J. / Google / Jul 08, 2020
What to Expect with Microneedling with PRP
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.
Microneedling with PRP Anticipated Results
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.
