This treatment is popular for its skin rejuvenating results
The Atlanta Institute for Facial Aesthetic Surgery is proud to offer microneedling with platelet rich plasma (PRP). Sometimes referred to as a vampire facial, the microneedling with PRP treatment is popular for its skin rejuvenating result. The innovative procedure is a popular cosmetic technique used to aid in treating facial skin imperfections and help give you a radiant complexion.
But how does it work, exactly?
Below we will answer the most frequently asked questions about microneedling with PRP. Keep reading to learn more about what INFINI microneedling is, how it works and how it can help improve your complexion through non-invasive means!
What is INFINI Microneedling?
By combining microneedling, sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy, with platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, the benefits of each are significantly boosted to give you a refreshed and youthful appearance.
Microneedling alone is often used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, acne scarring, wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, acne, enlarged pores, and many other skin imperfections. PRP is a new technique that is used to stimulate the body's healing process, most popularly in sports medicine to heal injuries.
The two methods of rejuvenation joined into one office session make it a powerhouse skincare treatment — hence why it has become so popular among everyday patients and celebrities alike.
How does INFINI Radio Frequency Microneedling work?
To understand how microneedling with PRP works, it is important to first understand how each procedure works on its own. Microneedling is a treatment performed in office to help treat various skin conditions (such as including fine lines, scarring and hyper-pigmentations) by triggering your body to create more collagen.
The microneedling tool creates small sticks, almost like pinholes, in the outer layer of the skin. This is the method that stimulates your body's natural healing process, causing you to produce more collagen.
Collagen is the "secret" to aiding in the reduction of skin impurities. It is an essential part of your skin's structure and it supports the production of other age defying essentials, such as hyaluronic acid and elastin. Hyaluronic acid helps your skin to retain moisture, and elastin keeps your skin firm.
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is used for many different regenerative
purposes such as regenerating muscles, skin tissue, and nerves.
Recently, it has been used to give patients renewed and radiant
PRP works by submerging cells in a plasma with a concentrated blend
of platelets that are taken from your own blood. The mixture of
platelets is specially created by drawing blood from the patient and
then having it go through a machine known as a centrifuge. This machine
separates the blood by layers, so the platelets can be easily
concentrated and removed.
The plasma is then applied topically to increase healing time and
rejuvenate the skin. Radiofrequency energy (RF) allows for heat to be
delivered in the fraction of a second that the needle is at its deepest
depth, further stimulating collagen.
Microneedling with PRP - with or without RF - uses skin revitalizing techniques to help give you the complexion that you desire. After the microneedling slightly injures the skin, the PRP helps to increase the speed of the healing process as your body naturally produces more collagen and elastin.
What makes INFINI Microneedling unique?
At the Atlanta Institute for Facial Aesthetic Surgery, we offer
INFINI microneedling near you. What makes INFINI's approach so unique?
INFINI combines fractional radiofrequency (RF) technology with
microneedling. As opposed to other RF platforms that treat the skin from
the outside in, INFINI's unique technology delivers RF directly to the
The dermis, the second layer of your skin, is rich in collagen - the supporting structure of your skin. By delivering heat energy from RF to the dermis, INFINI encourages collagen growth and tissue tightening precisely at predetermined depths in the skin. The result is a nearly painless procedure that can greatly improve wrinkling, scars, and skin laxity with no recovery time.
What is RF Technology?
Although RF energy occurs at the same frequency as radio waves, it is
basically electrical energy. When RF technology is used in the skin, it
delivers electrical energy into collagen, heating it to stimulate new
production. The result is skin contraction, which leads to firmer and
Because it causes the skin to tighten, INFINI is an ideal treatment for patients who have begun to worry about sagging skin, particularly in their necks and the lower half of their faces. Patients with facial scarring, especially acne scars, usually see a significant improvement as well.
How is the treatment performed?
Microneedling with PRP is usually a quick treatment that is performed
in the office. The first step is the application of a topical
anesthetic to keep you comfortable during the procedure. It takes a few
minutes for the anesthetic to sink in and begin to work, so at this time
your blood will be drawn.
Your blood will then be taken and spun in the centrifuge to separate
the platelets and the plasma will be created. After this, your own
platelet rich plasma, or as some call it your "liquid gold", will be
ready to be applied to your face. Once you are numbed the microneedling
A small device with a lot of very small needles will go over your skin multiple times. This is the device that will create the small pinholes, or injuries. These tiny pinholes will allow the PRP solution to absorb into your skin deeper.
What are the benefits of INFINI compared to traditional microneedling?
The benefits of adding PRP to microneedling is that it helps to boost
the results of a traditional microneedling session. It also increases
the speed of your body's healing process and the amount of collagen that
Being able to enhance the results of microneedling, without making the treatment more invasive is part of what makes this technique so innovative.

Healthy individuals who are looking to reduce the appearance of mild
to moderate fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, hyper pigmentation, and

PRP. Those with more severe skin imperfections may want to consider
more intensive cosmetic procedures.
This treatment is not recommended for patients that have any blood
related conditions such as anemia. Additionally, if you are taking blood
thinners or NSAIDS, consult your doctor, as these should be
discontinued before and after treatment.
