what is PRP?

We offer platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections for the face, neck, chest, and hands.  These platelets stimulate collagen, elastin, and stem cells to migrate and form new skin. This process takes 1-2 months.

The part of your blood called platelets contains hundreds of growth factor proteins which are very important for healing injury, especially to the surface layers of the skin. For a PRP treatment, your blood is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the platelet rich plasma from the blood cells. The plasma with platelets is injected into your skin and then applied to your skin again during a microneedling treatment. 

Microneedling with PRP can be used for the following:

  • large pores

  • loose skin

  • fine lines and wrinkles

  • acne scars and stretch marks

  • crepey or rough skin texture

By creating tiny punctures in the skin with small needles, your body’s own natural healing process kicks in to repair the skin, stimulating the creation of new collagen.  When we add PRP (platelet rich plasma) into the equation, the healing process gets a boost thanks to the hundreds of human growth factors aiding in recovery.  Results last 12-18 months.
