PRP w/ Microneedling

Posted on July 25, 2018 by:

Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin treatment intended to restore collagen and elastin production and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. This is achieved using a device called the Rejuva-pen, which creates controlled, micro-injuries or channels on the skin. During the body’s natural healing process, collagen and elastin are produced.

When we incorporate your own PRP (platelet rich plasma) to this treatment the results escalate to beautiful proportions. To obtain your plasma, sample of your blood is needed. We spin the sample in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the actual blood. Your body’s plasma is naturally very rich with growth factor and cytokines; both of which are essential in promoting the regeneration of soft tissue. That plasma is used as a lubricant to the Rejuva-Pen so that the plasma is immediately absorbed into the micro-injuries and channels.
For most patients, recovery is very painless and quick. For 72 hours you should refrain from sun exposure and intense exercise.
Collagen production builds over time usually ranging from 4-12 weeks. For best results, 4-6 treatments are recommended.
