Feeling beautiful means feeling confident, and feeling confident allows you to be your best and most productive self. Wrinkles, lines, sunspots, and the like draw your eyes when you look in the mirror, distracting you from your natural beauty. Savvy Aesthetics offers microneedling treatments, including the Instagram-worthy vampire facial, to eliminate these imperfections and restore your natural flawlessness. If you’re in the Bell, California, area, call or schedule an appointment online at Savvy Aesthetics to find out more about microneedling treatments.

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a method of eliminating the gaping pores, lines, spots, and other blemishes that come with age. In short, it’s a miracle treatment for your skin. You deserve to see your natural allure, and many of these imperfections can distract you.


Microneedling treatments involve tiny needles that lightly puncture your skin after your Savvy aesthetician applies a topical numbing cream to prevent discomfort. When it is injured, even slightly, your skin produces a protein called collagen that gives your complexion vibrancy and elasticity. As you age, you don’t produce as much, making your skin prone to wrinkles, spots, and lines. Incisions from microneedling remind your skin to produce collagen for healing and rejuvenation.


What can microneedling do?

Microneedling is incredibly versatile in the imperfections that it can treat. It can improve the appearance of or fully eliminate*:


  • Scars

  • Lines

  • Wrinkles

  • Acne scars

  • Large pores

  • Sun spots

  • Sagging skin

  • Uneven skin tone

  • Alopecia (Hair Loss)


If you have other skin blemishes that you think could benefit from microneedling, the Savvy team can help you determine if microneedling is the right choice for treatment or direct you to a better fit. 

What is a vampire facial?

Remember those bloody-faced celebrity selfies on Instagram? They’re usually accompanied by a caption raving about vampire facials. A vampire facial involves microneedling followed by a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) mask. 


Plasma is the part of your blood that contains platelets, which promote healing and regeneration in your tissues and skin. You can have a PRP application without an accompanying microneedling treatment, but the small incisions from microneedling combined with the rejuvenating qualities of PRP enhance and accelerate your results. During a vampire facial, your own blood will be used to obtain the platelet-rich plasma, so your body won’t reject the plasma or respond to it negatively.

What are the risks of microneedling?

Any treatment that results in bloody selfie-taking and has the word “needle” in its title is sure to prompt a few questions about risks and side effects. Despite the scary names for the treatments and nightmarish pictures of the processes, microneedling and vampire facials are generally safe with benefits that far outweigh the risks. Risks of microneedling treatments include:


  • Minor redness and irritation

  • Bleeding

  • Bruising

  • Peeling

  • Increased sun sensitivity

  • Infection


While infections from microneedling are serious, they are rare. Some conditions and diseases put you at a higher risk of developing an infection, and the Savvy team will inform you of any reasons why you may be at a higher risk. You shouldn’t get the treatment if you are pregnant, have a skin condition, or have recently had radiation therapy.
