What is PRP Therapy?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment 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 therapy for many issues: anti-aging facial rejuvenation, acne, and any other scarring, chronic redness, hyper pigmentation, stretch marks and even thinning of hair! It is also known as the “vampire facial”, however with our physician-performed procedures, we use all medical-grade technology for our in-house PRP Treatment.
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 microneedle 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 micro-needling therapy is combined with Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment, the addition of growth factors means that collagen production is increased and the skin heals more quickly.
