PRP & Microneedling Facials
Microneedling treatment induces the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating “micro-injuries” in the skin. These micro-injuries trigger collagen synthesis without posing a risk for scarring. The result of the procedure is smoother, firmer and younger-looking skin. The procedure is performed in a safe manner with the use of the FDA approved device SkinPen using a single-use sterile needle head. The procedure is normally completed within 45-70 minutes, depending on the size of area(s) treated.
What to Expect:
Topical anesthetic is applied to the desired areas of treatment about 15-30 minutes prior to the microneedling procedure, with or without the presence of PRP.
The doctor will determine the appropriate amount of treatments for the best results. Often 3-6 treatments are recommended for the maximum results.
After the treatment, your skin may be red and flushed, similar in appearance to a moderate sunburn. There may be redness, tingling, peeling, and slight bruising. This may last for 24 hours to up to 5 days. Keep in mind that this is part of the skin’s normal healing process.
For weeks to months post-treatment, your face will continue to regenerate, rebuild, and form new collagen making your skin healthier and more youthful.
Single vs. Multiple Treatments:
Single Treatment: Reduction in appearance of fine lines, large pore size, uneven skin tone, and minor blemishes.
Multi-Treatment Series (3-6 treatments at 4-6 week intervals): Reduction in appearance of moderate to deep wrinkles, atrophic acne scars, striae/stretch marks, traumatic scars, and non-keloid hypertrophic scars.
