Nowadays, we’re all looking for natural ways to enhance the way we look so we can feel our best.

The expert medical spa team at Tampa Surgical Arts offers this service for men and women in Odessa, Florida, and throughout the Tampa Bay area, and we’ll be glad to help you unleash your beauty with this innovative treatment.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive medical spa treatment in which very fine and short needles, as small as 0.5 millimeters, are inserted into the skin to stimulate collagen and promote rejuvenation. It’s these tiny needle pricks that do all the work—they cause injury to the skin, which prompts it to make new, collagen-rich tissue. This new tissue is often firmer, more toned, and more even, helping to transform the skin, removing fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, acne scars, stretch marks, and more.
About an hour before the microneedling treatment, we’ll apply a topical anesthetic cream to ensure you are comfortable throughout the procedure since you will be awake during it. Additionally, after your treatment, we’ll apply a serum or calming treatment to help with the healing process.
Vampire Facials at Tampa Surgical Arts
A vampire facial may sound like a scary procedure that’s performed in a science-fiction novel, but we promise, it’s a safe, effective treatment that can provide incredible results. Also known as microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a vampire facial essentially uses your own blood to energize and hydrate your skin. Here’s how it works:
- First, as with any microneedling procedure, we’ll apply a numbing agent to your face.
- Next, we’ll do a blood draw and separate out the platelets.
- Then, we’ll perform the microneedling treatment as normal.
- After that, we will topically apply the PRP, which will fill into the tiny holes created by the microneedling.
- Lastly, we will apply a calming serum to your face.
You may be wondering about the benefits of a vampire facial over a simple microneedling treatment. The addition of PRP takes the microneedling treatment to the next level. PRP is rich in growth factors and provides an energy boost to the skin. It promotes healthy cell functioning, improves collagen and elastin, and even offers antioxidant and hydration benefits.
