Micro-needling is a cosmetic procedure that involves pricking the skin with tiny, sterilized needles to create microscopic wounds which stimulate your body to make more collagen and elastin and heal. Micro-needling is also known as collagen induction therapy.

Micro-needling is used in the treatment of:

  • Acne
  • Hair loss
  • Dark spots or patches on your skin (hyperpigmentation)
  • Large pores
  • Reduced skin elasticity
  • Scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines and wrinkles



A platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial, also known as Vampire Facial, involves applying a sample of the Client’s blood to the face, usually with micro-needling. Rather than using the blood immediately, the medical professional performing the procedure first isolates protein-rich plasma and platelets from the sample to create PRP.

Although PRP facials have recently become popular as a cosmetic treatment, medical professionals began using PRP injections to treat injured joints years ago. It accelerates the body’s growth and healing processes.

PRP improves skin tone, texture, and fine lines by encouraging the body to produce collagen and generate healthy skin cells. In a platelet-rich plasma facial, the growth factors present in PRP work in combination with micro-needling.

benefits include

  • Reduce wrinkles
  • Plump up sagging skin
