Also known as the Vampire Facial, this combination treatment
offers SkinPen® Microneedling and Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) with little-to-no downtime.

What is SkinPen® microneedling with PRP?

Also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy, or the Vampire Facial, this non-surgical treatment combines two medical procedures – Skinpen™ Microneedling to stimulate collagen and elastin production, and platelet rich plasma (PRP) to naturally stimulate growth of healthy tissue.


How does Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) work?

Before the treatment begins, our medical professional draws a small sample of the patient’s blood. The blood is then spun in a centrifuge to create a product that is rich in plasma and platelets, known as platelet rich plasma (PRP). This PRP, contains concentrated amounts of growth factors and other elements that promote and support tissue regeneration, can be applied where it is needed with the SkinPen®. The SkinPen® uses a microneedling process that creates mini injuries.

PRP has many applications in medicine and has been used for years to support the body’s healing process. PRP is used in aesthetic medicine to stimulate the production of collagen and new tissue growth. As the skin heals with SkinPen® aftercare, the result is better-looking, youthful and smooth skin.

Benefits of SkinPen® with PRP:

  • Little Downtime: It is a perfect treatment for patients with a busy schedule.

  • Natural Recovery: SkinPen’s mechanical process is versatile and usable year-round.

  • Safe for all Skin Types: Clinically proven effective on all skin types, Fitzpatrick 1 – 6.

  • Safe and Sound: The First FDA-cleared microneedling device on the market

  • Comfortable: A light numbing cream may be used to minimize discomfort

Is it safe?

Yes, by design. SkinPen’s patent-pending – and single-use – sterile needle cartridge is built with safety in mind. SkinPen is also surrounded by a proprietary BioSheath that acts as a barrier to prevent cross contamination between procedures. That’s part of the reason SkinPen by Bellus Medical is the world’s first FDA-cleared microneedling device. 

When will I see results? 

Patients typically begin to notice results within a week, with the most dramatic results appearing within 4 to 8 weeks. Impressive results can be achieved with the recommended 3 to 6 sessions, spaced at monthly intervals. If you’re looking for a non-surgical treatment that provides overall skin rejuvenation, Skinpen ™Microneedling and PRP may be an ideal solution for you.
