Vampire PRP Facial with Eclipse Micropen for CIT (collagen induction therapy)
Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance. During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with the appearance of softer wrinkles. Eclipse Micropen™ also creates superficial micro-channels which allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin.
Patient may experience redness for a couple days following the procedure. Patients should avoid the sun and wear SPF (SPF50 or higher) at all times.
When micro needling is paired with PRP application, MicroPen enhances the outcome, increases total collagen production, and accelerates healing. This procedure has been widely known as the “blood facial or vampire facial.” JOLI Medispa uses the Micropen to microneedle the skin ( injure the tissue) then apply PRP topically to the skin to help it heal and stimulate collagen production. A “blood facial” or “vampire facial” is a cosmetic procedure during which a doctor draws a couple vials of blood from your arm, centrifuges the blood to separate out the plasma and platelets from the red blood cells, and then adds the platelet-rich plasma back into your face. This process separates the blood into its different components. The plasma portion that contains platelets is drawn into a syringe and injected back into your face. Platelets are cells involved in forming clots to stop bleeding after injury, but they also contain growth factors and proteins that are known to assist in healing. These growth factors are released after the platelets are injected into the face and are the presumed entities that induce the purported rejuvenation effects. No incisions are required and only topical anesthesia is required!
Patients who are great candidates for the Micropen and Micropen with PRP have the following:

Vampire Facelift offers a way of both restoring shape, and improving tone and texture, as well as literally rejuvenating new and younger tissue! The “Vampire Facelift” is a procedure that involves withdrawing a patient’s blood, processing it to isolate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP), then re-injecting it to erase wrinkles and create a more youthful look. This is most often done in combination with the Juvederm Family of Fillers.
“Organic filler” Facelift – Vampire Facelift with only PRP (combination of Juvederm fillers removed)
Vampire Facelift or Filler without the combination of Juvederm Fillers. Provides less of an Instant fill, but provides long term results by both restoring shape, and improving tone and texture, as well as literally rejuvenating new and younger tissue.
