Vintage Lashes ™ is pleased to offer our patented Advanced microneedling machine. It separates us from many companies offering this service. We are the only company in SW Florida that owns this patented machine. Training alongside the inventor of this unique machine has been a real honor and we are excited to share that this amazing upgrade to the basic microneedling tool allows for delivery of nutrients in a serum base or your own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) at the time of puncture. In every puncture!
Call (239) 263-1050 to schedule an appointment.
The current, basic microneedling machines on the market puncture via a vibration mechanism that have 12 needles 0.35mm short step puncturing tiny holes into the skin then a serum is applied topically to absorb into the skin through the newly created punctures. In PRP procedures, your platelet rich plasma would be injected by needle in several locations throughout the area.
Our Advanced Microneedling machine was designed to operate using a hammering mechanism (up and down action) with a 0.20mm needle attached to a tube full with serum (or PRP). The U shaped cap at top of needle allows the serum to go deeper into the skin, making the skin more plump. The serum is being delivered into the skin instead of being absorbed like normal microneedling. The serum also acts like a lubricant when being punctured into skin making advanced microneedling less painful and your body heals a lot faster.
Some rare cases you may only need one session , depending on your skin if you need multiple sessions after 3 sessions the 4th session is Free.
Please come with no makeup. Do not book the week of an event you will be red.
The easiest way to describe this treatment is as follows. Blood is extracted from the patient and is spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the red blood cells, and create an incredibly rich plasma. This is injected back into the skin, working with the body’s natural response contracting and producing a new layer of collagen and has been scientifically proven to work 100% on all skin tones. The treatment has been used in cosmetic applications for years. Scientifically proven to work better than laser.

What are Platelets? Human blood is comprised of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. The platelets are small, disk-shaped cell fragments in the plasma portion of the blood that work to facilitate clotting and tissue regeneration. They are known to secrete fundamental growth factors that initiate cell regrowth.
How is Platelet Rich Plasma made? A sample of the patient’s blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cell portion from the platelets and plasma components. Your blood is made up of 93% Red Blood Cells 6% White Blood Cells and 1% Platelets. The separated “solid” portion of the blood, or platelet rich plasma, contains approximately five to seven times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood along with concentrated bioactive proteins that aid in wound healing.
What is a Vampire Facelift? A Vampire Facelift is a term that has become popular, and it describes what we’re doing when we use PRP for facial cosmetic improvement. The reason the term has become popular is because we take a blood sample, and then inject the blood back into the face (even though we remove the red cells which would cause excessive bruising). Blood contains PRP and we inject the PRP into the face, rather than the whole of the blood.
What Can Be Treated With A PRP Facial? The PRP Facial is effective for treating problems that result from a loss of volume in your skin, such as frown lines, wrinkles around your eyes, smile lines and nasolabial folds that extend from your nose to the corners of your mouth. The technology behind PRP Facials has also been proven effective for treating the neck, jaw, mid-face and cheek areas, as well as acne scarring.
How does PRP Vampire Facial differ from dermal filler products? Unlike commercially available dermal fillers like Restylane or Juvederm, PRP Vampire Facial is naturally derived from your own blood rather than foreign sources such as calcium hydroxylapatite, hyaluronic acid gel, poly-L-lactic acid or bovine collagen.
Who is a good candidate for microneedling with PRP? Microneedling with PRP is a very safe and effective treatment for adults with all skin types who wish to improve their skin quality. The depth of the our patented microneedling machine can be adjusted to meet the client’s individual needs and objectives. Due to its low-risk profile, Microneedling with PRP is a good option for people who are not good candidates for lasers, such as those with darker skin types. Our patented machine works better than any other machine on the market with PRP. It is also a very powerful tool for treating scars on the face and body.
Microneedling is proven scientifically to produce the most new layer of collagen more than any other procedure including laser.
Skin contracts 72hrs later with the new layer of collagen making it tighter.
The invention provides a microneedling machine that permits microneedles to be easily inserted into skin with minimal or no damage, pain, or irritation to the tissue. The invention further provides a microneedling machine for the administration of soluble lotions, pharmaceutical agents and cosmetic agents to skin through the site where the microneedle is inserted. The microneedling machine is manipulated by an operator to insert microneedles into a desired site in the skin. Microneedles used in conjunction with the microneedling machine are shaped to be gradually finer from the base to the tip and have sharp tips for insertion into skin. The microneedles may comprise a variety of shapes, for example circular cone or polygonal pyramid such as triangulate pyramid, quadrangular pyramid, hexagonal pyramid and octagonal pyramid. In addition, the microneedling machine comprises a reservoir having an internal cavity that holds lotion, pharmaceutical agents or cosmetic agents. Tubing runs from the base of the reservoir to carry the lotion, pharmaceutical agents or cosmetic agents held therein to the tip of the microneedle at the point of insertion into the skin. The reservoir is made of a deformable material that can be compressed to deliver the lotion, pharmaceutical agent or cosmetic agent stored therein to the tip of the microneedle. The microneedling machine allows for different lotions, pharmaceutical agents or cosmetic agents to be delivered to the skin by the microneedle in a controlled and varied manner by the operator of the machine.
At your scheduled appointment we will do a consult before starting the procedure. Using our advanced microneedling machine with our serum that was specially created is poured into a tube and is directly delivered into your skin at time of puncture. Our serum has the best ingredients for the best end results.
Our serum formulation consists of:
During the procedure you will have a small amount of pain but less painful than tradition normal microneedling. Some areas around the face including forehead, nose, and upper lip will be more painful due to the thinness of skin. We do not use a numbing agent because we have found that the results are better without.
After the procedure it is normal to have redness in the areas that we have microneedled. Redness and very little if any swelling will subside in just a few days. Do not wash your face and areas that were microneedled for 4 hrs, your pores need to close and you want as much absorption of serum as possible in this time frame. Do not apply makeup for 72hrs until your pores are closed. Skin may peel or flake on it’s own do not pull skin off, let your body naturally do it for you. Keep out of the sun until your skin is completely healed.
