Microneedling in itself is used to treat a variety of different skin conditions. This technique uses tiny, sterile needles to puncture the skin and cause micro injuries to stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process. This then prompts the deepest layer of skin, the dermis, to rebuild. Microneedling by itself can address many skin complaints such stretch marks, pigmentation problems, acne, scarring, large pores and even wrinkles!

Great question! PRP or Platelet-rich Plasma is created from your own blood. It is a concentrate of plasma cells and very precise growth factors. Microneedling with PRP prompts the cells to naturally stimulate healing and accelerates results with minimal downtime. Microneedling with PRP helps accelerate the body’s natural healing process, which will restore the skin to a firmer, more youthful tone and texture.

Benefits of Microneedling with PRP:
One of the first things we do is apply a numbing gel to the area so the treatment has minimal discomfort. After your treatment, you will notice immediate results, which will continue to improve over a span of 6 months. This is because as your body’s natural collagen production is stimulated, the quality and texture of your skin continues to improve. Recovery is typically only 1-3 days. You will be given post care instructions that will give you all the information you need to care for your skin after your Microneedling with PRP treatment.
