One of our most popular services at Blue Seas Med Spa is PRP Micro-Needling. You may have heard this called, Collage Induction Therapy (CIT) or the "Vampire Facial" and have seen celebrities posting their before and after photos on social media once having it done. Is it right for you?

Let's break it down.

Micro-Needling is an innovation in aesthetics for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin's texture, tone and color. The skin's repair process results in improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles. We do this by creating micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. The skin's repair process results in a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles. Another benefit, is the once the micro-injuries are created on the skin, this creates channels for serums, gels and creams to effectively enter into the deeper layers of the skin.

Some of the incredible benefits of this procedure is reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture. Once you start treatment, you will start to see your skin looking softer and younger with fewer signs of aging. We have a lot of people who ask what can be expected at your first appointment. After a consultation with one of our providers, you will be able to relax while topical anesthetic cream is applied for your comfort. We will then take a sterile applicator containing 12 tiny micro-points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen®. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of saline solution to your skin and select the appropriate treatment setting based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding until the entire treatment area has been covered.

From start to finish, you can expect your treatment to last one hour. Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin.

The total healing time depends on the Eclipse MicroPen® setting used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Many patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours. We highly recommend a series of 6 treatments, spaced 1 month apart to achieve optimal results.
