How does PRP work?
A small volume of blood, no more than what is required for a basic lab test, is drawn by your practitioner. This vial of blood will be placed in a centrifuge, a device that spins the blood at a rapid rate in order to separate the platelets from the red and white blood cells. By doing so, the platelet-rich plasma is optimally concentrated with minimal amounts of contaminating red and white blood cells.
The use of PRP can be combined with microneedling, or filler to further enhance the results of your treatment. Our highly-skilled medical team will create a customized treatment based on your skin type and individualized needs.
Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling has proven to be a highly effective non-laser treatment to induce natural collagen production and aid in the reduction fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, and acne scars. Adding topically-applied PRP to your microneedling treatment will amplify its effects by encouraging your own skin to make collagen and remodel damaged tissue. The microscopic punctures created by microneedling serve as channels for this highly-concentrated plasma to penetrate into the dermis of the skin, delivering these potent growth factors where they need to be. We can safely treat the face, neck and décolletage using this technique all with minimal downtime!
PRP can also be injected to stimulate collagen and enhance the volumizing effect of your dermal fillers. PRP injections can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and even dark undereye circles.
