Traditional microneedling has been used for decades to treat signs of early aging, such as wrinkles, scarring, age spots and other types of hyperpigmentation. During a microneeding session, the doctor or esthetician uses a special needle roller to prick the skin and stimulate new collagen production (collagen induction therapy). Recently, the trend has been to add platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections to speed healing and create more immediate skin tightening. Our staff will evaluate your medical history to determine if you are a good candidate for a platelet rich plasma facial.

A platelet-rich plasma facial, also known as a vampire facial or blood facial, involves having your blood drawn and spun in a centrifuge to isolate platelets and growth factors from the blood cells. Once the serum is prepared, the liquid is injected or microneedled into areas of facial skin to promote rapid healing and increase the production of new collagen. The benefits of using PRP therapy include everything from healing acne scars to reducing hyperpigmentation. The growth factors in your own blood work like fertilizer for facial tissue as well as attract stem cells to the area. The undifferentiated stem cells then produce new collagen and elastin. Within about ten days, your complexion is glowing.
