Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a treatment using a 12-pin needle head device that can deeply penetrate and stimulate your skin to produce collagen and elastin that is accompanied by an application of your own platelet-rich plasma, which can ultimately reverse sun damage and promote anti-aging. Since the PRP treatment is made from your own cells, there are essentially no negative effects. By creating a serum (from your own growth factors, active proteins, and platelets) alongside a microneedling procedure, our Aesthetic Technician can rejuvenate your skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and enhance the softness and glow of your facial features with this quick, easy treatment in our office. If you have skin conditions such as acne, surgical scars, melasma, keloids, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, large pores, or stretch marks, microneedling with PRP would provide you with results comparable to fractional laser treatments with minimal downtime. If you would like to learn more about microneedling with PRP, please call our office, and schedule your consultation today.
Areas of Treatment
At Line Plastic Surgery, we can treat the following areas with microneedling and PRP therapy.
Wrinkles and fine lines
Skin (texture and tone)
The results of this treatment can be visible in the reduction of your pore size, visibility of stretch marks and surgical scars, and the increase of firmness in your skin from the enhanced collagen production.
The process for PRP therapy begins with a small draw of blood so that it can be spun in a unique centrifuge until the stem cells, platelets, and growth factors are condensed into a platelet-rich plasma. The PRP is then applied to a clean face. The Aesthetic Technician will then use a hand-held microneedling device on the facial skin for about 15 – 20 minutes, and it will then start to stimulate collagen production in the skin. Your face will be cleansed again before leaving our office.
What to Expect after Microneedling with PRP
After your first microneedling and PRP therapy appointment at our plastic surgery office, you will see some mild swelling, redness, and slight bruising for the first 1 – 3 days in the treatment areas. You will not see the full benefit of this treatment until about week 3 or 4. The skin will need time to heal and repair, and will reveal renewed skin for 6 – 18 months. To maximize results, we recommend having treatments every 1 – 2 months.
