Use the body’s natural substances to improve collagen production in the face.
PRP Microneedling is an FDA approved facial treatment that improves collagen production in the face. It utilizes two separate treatments: PRP (platelet rich plasma) Therapy and Microneedling. PRP Therapy uses the body’s natural substances i.e: the platelets in the blood; which contain growth hormones and other beneficial components. Once re-injected into the face, it revives the production of collagen. Microneedling, on the other hand, uses a specialized ‘machine pen’ that contains several tiny needles which make superficial puncture wounds to trigger the healing process. The light grazes trigger the bodies healing reaction.
Opulent Aesthetics now offers Vivace Microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to enhance your skin care regimen. Vivace Microneedling uses RF energy which supercharges the healing process deep within your skin, prompting the production of even more collagen and increasing the moisture level in your skin. PRP uses your own blood to rejuvenate your skin. After drawing some of your blood, we will place it into a centrifuge in order to separate its different parts. From there, we will take the platelet-rich parts and create a special serum, which will be used to target specific areas of your skin.

This procedure works by combining both the PRP treatment and Microneedling. First blood is drawn from the patient’s arm and then placed into a centrifuge, separating the blood from the plasma. Afterwards, the face is prepped and the doctor uses the microneedling instrument to graze across the face. Plasma or PRP, is dripped onto the face during the microneedling to help it penetrate deeper into the skin.
The benefits of PRP Microneedling treatment is that it penetrates the skin through the tiny channels that microneedling creates. Plus, the enriched platelets enhance the benefits of microneedling alone. Because of the emphasis on collagen regeneration, which keeps the skin looking firm and plump, it gives you a youthful appearance. Plus, it’s a natural treatment since PRP is derived from your own blood. Meaning that potential side effects are greatly diminished!
