Microneedling and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
Micro-needling or skin-needling therapy is a minimally invasive procedure where a cluster of needles penetrates the skin creating a controlled skin injury in which channels are opened for your body to produce its own natural collagen and elasticity. It can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, pore size and increase overall skin health. Micro-needling is ideal for every skin type and has minimal recovery time.
Adding (Platelet Rich Plasma) PRP to further stimulate collagen and elastin growth boosts the benefits of the micro-needling treatment. PRP takes a portion of the patient’s own blood having a platelet concentration above baseline. Then the growth factors in your blood cells do their job and promote healing. PRP is commonly known as the “vampire facelift.”
