Microneedling with PRP in Jupiter and Palm Beach, FL
Dr. Jason Cooper and his skilled Medspa team design optimal skincare treatments for a safe, comfortable, and successful patient experience. The entire staff strives to offer cosmetic improvements that rise to the highest standards in aesthetics and plastic surgery. It’s because of this commitment that we are pleased to offer what has become known as the “Vampire Facial.” This advanced treatment delivers exceptional skin rejuvenation through non-surgical Microneedling and your body’s natural healing process.
Microneedling with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treats an array of skin issues, including the eventual signs of facial aging. If you are looking to age gracefully without the hassle of over-the-counter facial remedies, you may want to consider our Vampire Facial to promote youthful, radiant facial skin.
A "Vampire" Facial for Facial Rejuvenation
A Vampire Facial is the common name for combining PRP therapy with Microneedling. Although each treatment has widespread applications on their own, when done together they can:
- Improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation
- Reduce the appearance of age spots
- Decrease the severity of crow’s feet
- Improve the effects of sun-damaged skin
- Treat dark circles under the eyes
- Reduce acne scarring
- Smooth out and add volume to wrinkles
- Tighten and lift the skin
- Smooth skin surface
Also known as collagen induction therapy, Microneedling is a transformative tool in cosmetic skincare. Our Medspa staff in Jupiter and Palm Beach performs Vampire Facial with a handheld device that resembles a pen. At the end of this wand-like apparatus, there are superfine needles that will create tiny wounds at optimal depths, just below the second layer of skin (dermis). These controlled injuries help stimulate healthy, structural protein production. Increases in elastin and collagen production will tighten skin to youthful textures, making you look younger and radiant.
Once the Microneedling application is complete, PRP therapy will boost its effect with the incredible healing properties of your own blood. Our staff will draw a small amount of blood, then separate platelets via a specialized centrifuge, and apply the platelet-rich plasma to the treatment site. This process will trigger powerful blood-derived healing factors that will promote the growth of healthy new skin tissue. This results in beautiful skin that is tighter, fuller, and smoother.
A Comfortable, Convenient Process
Our patients tell us that the procedure is highly tolerable. We carefully use a syringe which we use to extract the PRP. A topical anesthesia cream is applied on your face to alleviate any distress you may experience with the Microneedling and PRP. We can discuss other options to make your experience as comfortable as possible if you prefer.
Vampire Facial Recovery
Although there may be some minimal swelling and bruising after the procedure, a Vampire Facial offers little downtime. Most patients return to work or their daily routine after treatment. Any inflammation or bruising will clear up within a week.
We ask you to avoid direct sunlight, harsh soaps or cleansers and refrain from sweat-producing activities for a few days.
We will give you post-treatment instructions to help you heal quickly. Each patient responds to treatment differently, with some requiring additional treatments for optimal results. We will instruct you of our treatment plan designed to conform to your cosmetic goals during your consultation.
Vampire Facial FAQs with Dr. Jason Cooper
These facials are helpful for individuals with acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. They also help patients with sun-damaged skin. Most people who need help with their skin can safely have the procedure. However, if you have a blood disorder or require blood thinners, a Vampire Facial may not be right for you. If you have any health-related questions, be sure to let us know during your consultation.
We will follow a proven protocol during your Vampire Facial. First, we apply a numbing cream on the treatment site. Then, we will draw a small amount of blood from your arm and process it through a specialized centrifuge to separate the platelets. Once your face is numb, we initiate the Microneedling phase which causes micro-wounds through tiny punctures into your skin. Next, we apply the PRP to the treatment area of micro-wounds causing the prepared PRP to absorb into the skin. Lastly, we will clean your face and possibly apply cold compresses to minimze any swelling.
Although the best results often take about three weeks to become fully visible, you may experience immediate improvement that will continue to develop. Some patients may wait up to six months to experience their best results, as every patients’ healing process is different.
Unfortunately, no. Although a vampire facial can improve skin texture and tone, it does not stop the aging process. However, you can schedule additional treatments to continue having healthy, fresh skin.
We understand that there are a plethora of skin care treatments in the marketplace, both clinical and over the counter. Since Bar Refaeli and Kim Kardashian brought attention to this treatment, there is a lot of information available online about the Vampire facial. However, nothing can take the place of an in-person consultation with a skincare specialist.
