Microneedling is a procedure that is meant to rejuvenate and revitalize your skin, giving you youthful and vibrant skin. The procedure consists of inserting tiny needles into the skin, making hundreds of minute punctures on the outermost layer of skin. Once the skin is punctured, the body will work to heal the “wounds,” providing collagen and elastin to the skin. The collagen and elastin, combined with new cell generation, can work to reverse the signs of aging.
Microneedling has a plethora of skincare benefits and provides lasting and immediate results. Here are some of the amazing benefits of microneedling:

Microneedling, ACP Therapy and the Vampire Facial
In most cases, microneedling will be used in conjunction with Autologous-Conditioned Plasma (ACP) therapy as part of the Vampire Facial, one of the most popular treatments at Prime Med Spa. The Vampire Facial uses ACP therapy and microneedling to maximize the efficiency of the two treatments, as they work together to beat up father time and reverse signs of aging
The average number of laser sessions for a standard removal protocol at Prime Med Spa is 10. Nationally, this is 15-20. If you are medically cleared as a candidate for an accelerated treatment protocol, you will have well under 10 treatments to clear your tattoo. The length of time between treatments is usually 4-6 weeks, but varies per patient and skin response.
The best option is our Tattoo Removal Club pricing, whereby you are quoted a price for unlimited tattoo removal sessions until the tattoo is clear or faded to your satisfaction. The Prime Med Spa medical staff will determine your treatment intervals, and the Medical Director reserves the right to clinically conclude your treatments once it has been determined that you have achieved a maximum potential outcome.
In most cases, the entire procedure will not last longer than an hour. The entire procedure is done in house and will only require one visit, although sometimes it requires a few sessions to get the desired effects.
No! You can use microneedling on a variety of other body parts in order to reduce the signs of aging. However, microneedling cannot effectively treat cellulite.
