We would all like to have perfect skin. However, environmental, genetic, and other factors often cause blemishes and imperfections in our skin. If you are tired of being unhappy with your complexion and are looking for a nonsurgical solution, microneedling with PRP may be able to help.
What is Microneedling with PRP?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment to help address many signs of aging and skin imperfections, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scarring
- Stretch marks
- Uneven skin tone
- Large pores
- Uneven skin texture
During treatment, a special microneedling pan creates micro-injuries in the skin that stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. Treatment takes about 30-60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a procedure that can be done with microneedling to help boost results. It involves drawing a small amount of blood from your arm. This blood is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from red and white blood cells. The plasma is then applied to the skin at the time of the microneedling treatment to help with optimal absorption of the growth factors for great results!
Is it Right for You?
Almost anyone is a good candidate for microneedling with PRP. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your skin and wish to avoid ample downtime, this option may be right for you. Overall, a consultation with Dr. Sabbagh is the best way to determine if this treatment is right for you.
