PRP Therapy

What is PRP Therapy?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a preparation of platelets and the associated growth factors into a plasma solution. This PRP serum is extracted from the patient’s blood and is activated to release at least eight essential growth factors. Since PRP is derived from the patient, there is virtually no risk of an allergy or intolerance. Consider it the “High Octane Fuel” to force significant production of collagen. We can utilize PRP to treat many issues: anti-aging facial rejuvenation, acne and other scarring, chronic redness, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks and even thinning of hair!

What Does Microneedling Do?

Microneedling is a non-surgical facial rejuvenation technique that uses fine needles to puncture the skin at precise depths ranging from .5 to 2.5 millimeters. Each tiny puncture signals the body to sends a signal to generate collagen to the area, activating the body’s healing and restoration processes.

Dermapen4 microneedler is for physician-use only. 12 micro-needles that rapidly applied across the entire treatment area with an oscillating head on our specialized Dermapen4 state of the art exclusive platform. Patients report that they feel hardly any discomfort as we numb your skin prior to treatment. Healing time is relatively quick, with the only side effects being minor irritation and redness for 24 to 48 hours.

When microneedling is combined with PRP, the addition of growth factors means that collagen production is increased and the skin heals more quickly.
