Microneedling with PRP in Bethesda: Have You Heard of the Vampire Facial?

Here’s what to expect during your Bethesda microneedling with PRP procedure.

Microneedling with PRP is a non-invasive procedure that reduces the signs of aging and minimizes the appearance of age spots and scars.


What is Microneedling with PRP?Microneedling with PRP

Your Bethesda Microneedling with PRP procedure, also popularly known as the vampire facial, is a non-invasive procedure involving a mechanical pen creating tiny channels at a specific depth in the skin to trigger the body’s healing process which fills these channels with new collagen and elastin and forms new capillaries. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons further discusses the microneedling process used for this treatment.

The ‘vampire’ part of this treatment comes after these channels are formed when your own PRP supercharges the procedure’s benefits. PRP is obtained by drawing a small amount of your blood to use topically on the skin, to speed up recovery and virtually eliminate side effects.

This procedure can take as little as twenty minutes with a recovery time of just four to six days, where you’ll experience some redness and mild peeling.

Microneedling with PRP will consistently trigger the bodies repair process until your desired level of skin rejuvenation is achieved.  While this procedure does penetrate the top layer of the skin, it does not cause damage and results can last up to one year.


Some benefits of this procedure can include:

  • Improvement in skin tone and texture
  • Reduction of scars
  • Firmer, more even skin
  • New collagen and elastin produced
  • Reduced hyperpigmentation
  • Pore size shrunken
  • Treated stretch marks
  • Minimized appearance of age spots
  • Reduced signs of premature aging
  • Improved appearance of rosacea
