About Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling is an off-label treatment that punctures small holes into the skin on your face, neck, or chest to help stimulate skin repair. As an additional off-label benefit, your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be applied to the same area to help tissue heal and permit the skin to grow new cells, though current FDA Approval is only limited to orthopedic surgery at this time. These two treatments together can decrease the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, large pores, scars, fine lines, and other skin conditions. The texture of your skin may be greatly improved to appear smoother and more even without damaging the skin. If you would like to learn more about the microneedling with PRP treatment, contact Look Younger MD in the Las Vegas, NV area to schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Garry Lee.
Microneedling with PRP Reviews
The perfect candidate for microneedling with PRP would be any individual looking to alter the appearance or texture of the surface of their face. Dry skin, uneven skin tone, coarse texture, age spots, loose skin, wrinkles, acne and scarring are skin conditions that could benefit from a microneedling with PRP treatment. This procedure can also be utilized to combat the effects of sun damage that may have caused skin to have a rough texture or hyperpigmentation.
Prior to the microneedling portion of your treatment, someone from our medical staff will draw your blood for the PRP collection. The drawn blood will then be taken to our lab for the separation process where your stem cells, platelets, and growth factors will be turned into PRP. Look Younger MD first applies PRP topically then uses microneedling technology to create tiny holes in your skin to help PRP absorption and to stimulate the production of collagen. Additionally, PRP is actively dripped onto your skin during microneedling , then allowed to sink to remain on for a while after treatment to maximize effect. Finally, we will remove the serum and cleanse your skin upon completion of the process.
What to Expect
Following your microneedling with PRP procedure, you could experience some regular effects such as swelling, bruising, and redness. We recommend that you do not wear makeup, use abrasive skin cleansers or submerge in pools for around 72 hours following the session. Activities like this could expose your skin to harsh chemicals and bacteria which could lead to adverse reactions. You also need to intentionally avoid sun exposure or use protective measures when going outside. Final results are usually seen within several weeks as the skin works to repair and heal itself.
