PRP (Platelets Rich Plasma)
Microneedling is a new skin rejuvenation method that delivers patient’s enriched plasma to the thick layers of the skin through microscopic punctures. This procedure is ideal for the treatment of acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks, wrinkles and fine lines, hyperpigmentation, loose skin, sun damaged skin, large pores, and uneven skin texture.
It can be performed either on the face or body and is suitable for all skin types and colors. Combination of microneedling and PRP treatment significantly increases the chances of improving your skin’s appearance.
After a small sample of the patient’s blood is collected, it is processed by special equipment to produce platelet-rich plasma (PRP). PRP is well known for its high healing properties, such as causing increased tissue growth and ability to stimulate the body’s production of collagen. Sufficient collagen amount is important for maintaining elasticity and youthful appearance of the skin. The use of PRP is also beneficial for skin discolorations, acne scars, enlarged pores and certain other skin conditions.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that helps reduce the signs of aging and improve the appearance of acne scars. The SkinPen microneedling device delivers microscopic punctures that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process, trigger the release of growth factors, collagen, and elastin, allowing the contraction of the loose skin, as well as smoothing of the skin’s surface and improving its texture. Numbing cream is applied before the treatment, making the procedure painless. The downtime is quite minimal, allowing immediate return to regular daily activities. Because during the healing period after the procedure the skin is sensitive to the sun, patients are recommended to stay out of the direct sunlight or wear sunscreen for several weeks after the procedure to avoid sunburn and uneven skin pigmentation.
