What is Microneedling with PRP?
Automated microneedling (also known as epidermal collagen induction therapy, or ECIT) is one of the latest innovations in aesthetic medicine. The treatment uses the tiny needles in the MicroPen to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate collagen and elastin production. This procedure uses the MicroPen, the most advanced medical-grade automated microneedling device on the market. Microneedling with PRP can be performed on the face as well as the body.
First, we apply a topical numbing gel to the treatment area for optimal comfort. Then we insert a new sterile cartridge containing 12 microneedles into the Microneedling Pen and select the appropriate depth setting based on your skin’s unique needs. While you are numbing, we take a syringe of your own blood, put through a centrifuge that separates out the good platelets.
We apply your prepared PRP solution to the treatment area before and after the microneedling procedure to ensure that the PRP gets fully absorbed. We can also apply other therapeutic serums to further address your specific skin condition, such as melasma or hyperpigmentation.
Since we have applied numbing cream prior to treatment, there is no pain involved. It feels like little prickles as the pen glides over your face. Treatment time is about 30 minutes. Afterward, you will probably be red which may last 2 or 3 days but is usually not to the degree that you can’t go to work or out on errands. A post-treatment kit will help speed you recovery.
Results You Can Expect
You will notice results immediately after treatments and your glowing, smooth skin will continue to improve for months. It is recommended that you have at least three microneedling with PRP procedures but 6 over a year’s time span can result in absolutely amazing results. Again, if you are serious about anti-aging, this is the procedure you will want to continue on-going.
Microneedling with PRP is the go-to procedure of celebrities. If you’ve heard of the Kim Kardashian’s blood facial or facelift, this is the same process her doctor used on her. Dr. Slomon also uses PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy in treating hair loss on men and women.
