Men and women who’d like to improve their overall skin quality and reverse visible signs of aging throughout the face and body are in luck. Microneedling with PRP is a safe and effective procedure for patients with all skin types and tones. The minimally-invasive treatment produces dramatic results without the downtime associated with other procedures that offer similar outcomes.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling, also commonly referred to as collagen induction therapy, uses a professional device to bore microchannels below the surface of the skin. These devices create channels much deeper and more effective than your typical at-home roller. Your body’s natural healing process is jump-started causing an influx of beneficial collagen and elastin production. Fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, acne scars, and lax skin can all be addressed in a short in-office visit. And we use the most powerful topical anesthetic available to ensure your comfort.
Why Add PRP?
PRP (Platelet-Rich-Plasma) is packed with powerful growth factors, stem cells, and other messenger cells to stimulate a faster, more effective healing response. Combining Microneedling with PRP allows those beneficial goodies to penetrate deep below the surface of the skin and stimulate new cellular turnover. Adding PRP to your microneedling treatment creates healthy, happy skin.
How Does Microneedling with PRP Work?
Microneedling with PRP is done in a simple 3-step process. First, your practitioner will perform a blood draw. While your skin is numbing, the blood is cleansed, processed, and prepared for re-insertion. Afterward, your practitioner will use the handheld microneedling device to deliver the PRP to predetermined problem areas. The entire process usually takes about an hour.
You will have significant redness when you leave and can not apply makeup for the first 12 hours. Beyond that, there is no real down time, though it takes about 48 hrs for the redness to completely dissipate. You can cover this up after the first 12 hrs.
So this is a great Thursday or Friday afternoon treatment, as you should be back to normal by Monday morning.
You’ll begin to see noticeably younger-looking skin starting in just a few weeks post-treatment. Microneedling with PRP produces long-lasting results. Continued improvement will occur up to 6-months thanks to enhanced collagen production. A series of treatments may be necessary to achieve an optimal outcome.
Microneedling with PRP for Hair Restoration
Patients who suffer from hair loss or thinning can now enlist the help of Microneedling with PRP to take their lives back. The treatment is safe, effective, and less-invasive than traditional hair restoration methods for both men and women. The procedure is performed similarly to that of skin rejuvenation microneedling. However, your PRP sample will be mixed with a compound known as A Cell Matristem which is an FDA-approved product used for years in plastic surgery to regenerate skin in burn patients and in orthopedic surgery to stimulate bone regeneration. It is also full of growth factors, and more importantly provides a matrix to which the PRP can adhere. This produces faster, better, longer lasting results, regenerating and enhancing the growth of weakened hair follicles. Visibly thicker and more luxurious hair can be seen in just 60-days.
We also have an at-home microneedling program, combining custom compounded prescription hair loss medications… an awesome way to maintain and even enhance results.
