Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

Micro-Needling

What is Micro-Needling?

The micro pen is a sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro needles to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin. This initiates the skin’s repair process to naturally produce collagen and elastin, ideal for smoothing fine lines, winkles, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks. Micro-channels created by the treatment allow for optimal absorption of topical products and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), enhancing their effects in the deeper layers of the skin.

What is PRP?

PRP is a concentration of platelets in the blood that are crucial to wound healing. When used for skin rejuvenation PRP releases growth factors into the skin to expedite the body’s own repair process and stimulate new collagen and elastin.

What does the procedure entail?

A small blood sample is taken from your own body and the PRP is separated from the other components. The PRP is then topically applied to the skin immediately following a Micro-Needling procedure. The micro channels created by micro-needling provide a direct pathways to the deeper layers of the skin for optimal wound healing. Micro-needling with PRP application is an ideal treatment for smoothing fine lines, wrinkles and scars or even increasing plumpness and overall rejuvenation of the skin.

When will I see results?
