Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment
Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP, is a process in which a small amount of blood is drawn from your arm into a sterile tube. The sample is centrifuged to separate your plasma, which we use for the treatment, from your red and white blood cells. Plasma contains high concentration of platelets, stem cells and growth factors. Platelets help your tissue heal and grow new cells.
Benefits of the Microneedling with PRP treatment
Microneedling with PRP not only enhances your skin but also triggers the healing process. It can treat skin imperfections including freckles, blemishes, acne scars, sunburn spots, stretch marks and other skin imperfections.
Microneedling only pierces on the dermal (upper-most) layer of your skin so you will feel a slight pinching or tingling sensation. A numbing cream is applied about 30 minutes before starting the treatment so it becomes less painful. The most sensitive areas are upper lips and forehead.
This treatment takes minimal time for the patient’s skin to get back to its normal condition. The redness typically decreases within 24-48 hours. Doctors suggest not using any kind of makeup and staying out of the sun for nearly 24 hours.
The PRP treatment along with microneedling starts the body’s healing process. This treatment stimulates the body’ natural collagen production, which boosts the damage repair on skin imperfections.

Microneedling with PRP delivers long lasting results – the full results can be seen up to 6 months post treatment.
