PRP / MICRONEEDLING

What is Microneedling with PRP?

PRP and Microneedling is a procedure for both men and women of all ages and skin types who are interested in reducing signs of aging, reducing acne scars or other scars on the face and achieving smoother and brighter skin. This treatment, also known as collagen induction therapy, uses microneedle tools to pierce the skin in targeted areas, creating micro-injuries without damaging the skin. This stimulates the skin to produce collagen and remedial proteins to heal the micro-injuries across the face, resulting in a reduction of hyperpigmentation, scarring, wrinkles and an overall smoother and brighter skin.

Microneedling is a cosmetic non-invasive and low-risk treatment that uses microneedles to help tighten the skin and reduce fine lines, wrinkles, scars, sunspots, and more. This treatment, also known as collagen induction therapy, uses microneedle tools to pierce the skin in targeted areas, creating micro-injuries without damaging the skin. This stimulates the skin to produce collagen and remedial proteins to heal the micro-injuries across the face, resulting in reduction of hyperpigmentation, scarring wrinkles and overall smoother and brighter skin. When Microneedling is paired with PRP, also known as a vampire facial or collagen induction therapy, this helps improve the overall results of the procedure, improves the healing process and reduces swelling after the Microneedling session. Using PRP with Microneedling is known to especially help with acne or other scarring on the skin and helps reap maximum anti-aging benefits.

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a form of regenerative medicine that uses a patient’s own blood platelets to accelerate the healing process. When Microneedling is paired with PRP this is also known as a vampire facial or collagen induction therapy. After the microneedling portion of the procedure, the patient’s own PRP is massaged into the skin. This helps improve the overall results of the procedure, improves the healing process and reduces swelling after the Microneedling session.

Microneedling with PRP has many benefits and is great for anti-aging, smoothing and brightening the skin and more.

What is the healing process like?

Patients can return to work the next day, and many patients have been known to return to work after a lunchtime procedure with just slight skin redness. The skin will begin to feel tighter shortly after the session. Within the next four to eight weeks as the skin heals and collagen is produced, the skin will also improve in tone &
texture.
