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 and healing functions. We can utilize PRP to support and accelerate the body’s natural healing process, they’re considered “liquid gold” for their ability to rejuvenate the skin.

Microneedling with PRP

PRP 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 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 may experience redness, dryness, and flaking skin as your skin processes.

In the medical world, this includes injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. In the cosmetic world, we use the same process to accelerate healing of the face, skin, and hair.
