rediscover skin that looks and feels refreshed and youthful

As we age, the body’s natural collagen supply depletes, and as a result the skin loses its firmness, smoothness, elasticity and glow. This highly effective youth-boosting treatment helps increase your own collagen production to reduce the look of wrinkles, firm skin and enhance tone–instantly and over time.

platelt rich plasma (prp) with microneedling is a safe and natural solution

This groundbreaking procedure can help reverse years of damage in just one session. Instantly, experience a brighter complexion and dramatically smoother, softer skin. As your own collagen supply rebuilds over time, the look of wrinkles are reduced, elasticity improves, and your skin is able to retain more natural moisture. Results typically last about 9-18 months, depending on individual patients.

The treatment of PRP is relatively simple and can be completed in just one session. We collect the PRP by drawing a small amount of your blood, putting it into an FDA cleared device, placing it in a centrifuge and spinning it until the platelets separate from the blood. The PRP is then injected into the areas of concern to smooth out wrinkles and begin the regeneration of the skin. For even more dramatic results microneedling can be administered and the PRP applied to enhance regenerative results and healing.

platelet rich plasma benefits may include:

  • Fast, safe, non-surgical procedure
  • Minimal downtime
  • Rapid results with long-lasting regenerative benefits
  • Glowing, rejuvenated, more youthful-looking complexion
  • Increased collagen production
  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Firmer, tighter skin
  • Improved moisture retention
  • Enhanced skin tone and texture

how does this revolutionary treatment work?

PRP is actually blood plasma containing a concentrated amount of platelets and other vital growth factors. The platelets are the most important part of this procedure, these are what contain growth factors and bioactive and signaling proteins. The bioactive, or healing proteins, are what begin to repair and regenerate tissue. This is especially effective in stimulating healing, as well as developing new blood vessels and acting as an anti-inflammatory and pain reliever. The signaling proteins actually call stem cells to the desired area to assist in the regeneration of your tissues.

The PRP is highly beneficial for increasing collagen formation, skin tightening, connective tissue regeneration, and skin thickness rejuvenation, and helps correct wrinkling or loss of firmness in the forehead, eye, chin, cheek, neck, chest or hand areas. PRP’s growth factors activate cells in the body to prepare for the healing and generation of new capillaries and collagen in the skin. In addition, the platelets initiate hemostasis (blood clotting) and balance the inflammatory response which is necessary during the healing process.

what to expect

Microneedling is a procedure designed specifically to invoke the healing response in your skin by causing microtrauma in a targeted way. Using a pen with a small head that contains 10+ needles vibrating at a certain depth to pierce the superficial layer of the skin and naturally stimulating your skin to increase collagen and elastin formation. Benefits of this procedure range from reducing scarring, pigmentation, fine lines, improving the texture of your skin and exfoliating. Our practitioner recommends microneedling every 4-6 weeks until desired results are achieved.To avoid discomfort during treatment a topical anesthetic may be applied or a local numbing medication will be injected into or around the treatment areas. Expected treatment time is 15-30 minutes depending on the area being treated. To achieve full results, be sure to keep any follow-up appointments in your treatment series.
