What is it? Do I need it? What will it do for me? Cost. Time. Sessions.



Unlock Your Inner Glow with PRP Microneedling: The Secret to Youthful Skin


As the years pass by, our skin naturally loses its elasticity and firmness, leading to wrinkles, fine lines, and more prominent-looking scars. The good news is that there are many treatments out there to help your skin look and feel its best. One of the best is microneedling, a minimally invasive procedure that uses tiny needles to trigger collagen and elastin production for a more youthful look.


Have you heard of PRP microneedling? Also known as the "vampire facial". Yes, even the Kardashians have tried it! This variation of microneedling uses your own platelet-rich plasma (your own healthy elixir – your blood) to further enhance the results, leading to even more impressive outcomes. Don't let the name scare you – you won't turn into a creature of the night. In fact, if needles make you queasy, you can still try PRP. You won’t see and will barely feel the device on your skin thanks to our numbing cream. Honestly, we've used loofahs that were more uncomfortable.


At VITAFLOW WELLNESS, our microneedling costs vary depending on whether you're seeking skin care and repair or hair restoration. But let's talk about the benefits of PRP microneedling – this treatment may produce more dramatic results than microneedling alone. And while it may cost a little more, your investment pays off.



Are you wondering what is used on your face during both processes? In standard microneedling, we use hyaluronic acid as “the glide.” That’s the liquid we slowly release on the skin to allow the device to easily slide across the skin and increase hydration and nutrient absorption deeper into the lower dermis of the skin.


With PRP, “the glide” is derived from your own blood. Platelet Rich Plasma is part of your blood that helps to clot a cut. These little “powerhouses” release proteins called growth factors which stimulate new collagen more effectively than just using a hyaluronic serum.


The combined treatment of platelet growth factors and skin needling triggers and activates the body’s natural healing process to improve connective tissue regeneration, tighten the skin, improve texture & laxity, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, stretch marks, and acne scars.


PRP microneedling doesn’t cause any more downtime than standard microneedling and the rewards are worth the price for most people. Your skin will thank you for the extra care and attention. So, if you're looking to unlock your inner glow, contact us at VITAFLOW WELLNESS. After a brief consultation, we'll help you decide which microneedling treatment is best for your skin. Say goodbye to dull, lifeless skin and hello to radiance!
