MICRONEEDLING AND PRP

WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?


Microneedling is a procedure that uses an automated pen device with a sterile needle cartridge to create thousands of microinjuries to the skin. These microinjuries initiate the healing cascade and over time, have been shown to induce collagen and elastin production thus improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, and scarring.

WHAT IS PRP?


PRP is a cosmetic treatment that uses a person’s own blood to stimulate growth factors that help further promote collagen and elastin production. Platelets are very small cells in the blood that the body uses for clotting.

HOW DOES THE PROCEDURE WORK?


The treatment area is numbed with anesthetic cream prior to treatment and a small quantity of blood is then drawn from the patient’s vein. The blood is then spun down in a special centrifuge to separate its components which includes red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. The platelet rich plasma is then separated from the rest of the blood and drawn up to be microneedled into the skin.
