What Is Microneedling with PRP?
Microneedling with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a stand-alone skin rejuvenation treatment that’s been producing exceptional results without the hassle of extensive side effects or downtime. The procedure is highly-popular amongst Hollywood starlets to the girl next door and everyone in between. Smooth, glowing skin has never been so easily attainable.
How Does It Work?
Microneedling with PRP is a simple 3-step procedure that uses your own stem cells, platelets, and growth factors to boost your skin’s overall health. You’ll undergo a quick blood draw that will be sent to our lab for isolation before your skin care specialist performs your microneedling treatment to open pathways to the deeper layers of skin via tiny pinpricks. Finally, your PRP solution is gently painted on for maximum absorption.
Am I A Good Candidate?
The procedure can correct various complexion conditions such as fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, acne scars, and pigmentation problems. If you’d like to address visible signs of aging without surgery, you may want to enlist the help of microneedling with PRP.
Because microneedling with PRP improves your skin’s health, the treatment also makes a great preventative care solution for men and women who’d like to maintain a youthful appearance.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
Adding PRP to your 30-45 minute microneedling procedure doesn’t take much longer. From the initial blood draw to the final painting on of your topical PRP serum, you can expect to be in office for about 2-hours.
What Results Will I See?*
Many patients report noticeably smoother skin almost immediately. Enhanced collagen and growth factors work synergistically to produce dramatic results in just 2-3 weeks. Maintaining follow-up treatments is essential to lasting youthful-looking skin.
Is There Any Downtime?
Microneedling with PRP requires minimal downtime. Patients can expect their face to be red for 24-48 hours after treatment. The longer you leave your PRP mask on, the better the results will be. In most cases, you’ll be asked to leave the serum on until the following morning when it can gently be washed away.
