What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma, referred to as PRP, is considered liquid gold in the cosmetic world. Platelets are blood cells that come from plasma, the liquid portion of whole blood. These blood cells play a key role in our body’s necessary growth healing functions. We are able to utilize PRP to support and accelerate the body’s natural healing process.
Microneedling with PRP benefits
Microneedling is a skin care treatment mainly focusing on the face and neck that uses tiny needles to prick your skin, encouraging collagen production. This treatment improves fine lines, wrinkles, pores, scars, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, and “tech neck,” leaving your skin smoother and younger looking.
We use your own platelet-rich plasma to expedite healing and stimulate even more collagen and elastin for firmer, plumper skin. PRP’s healing benefits pair beautifully with the rejuvenating elements of microneedling. Microneedling with PRP recovery time may vary for each patient, but most patients recover within 5 days of the treatment. During this recovery time, you make experience redness, dryness, and flaking skin as your skin processes.
