Microneedling is a minimally-invasive procedure designed to tackle a wide range of aesthetic concerns. Whether you’re bothered by sun-damaged skin, acne scars, or simply want to reverse the effects of aging, microneedling can help. Patients can achieve exceptional results with a simple in-office visit at Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.
What Is PRP & Why Add It?
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is a unique serum that’s derived from your own blood. After a simple blood draw, the blood is sent to our lab for preparation. Skin-nourishing platelets, stem cells, and other growth factors are isolated for optimal efficacy. After your microneedling session, the PRP solution will be applied topically. By adding PRP to your microneedling treatment, you’ll see various benefits including the following.
#1: Address A Variety of Skin Concerns
Whether you’re looking to combat a single concern or achieve total facial rejuvenation, microneedling with PRP can help. While you’ll likely see an immediate improvement to overall skin tone and texture, regular sessions can visibly reduce the appearance of;
- Fine Lines & Wrinkles
- Acne & Acne Scars
- Skin Laxity
- Poor Texture & Tone
Microneedling with PRP may not be suitable for patients who are currently experiencing an acne breakout or have a psoriasis flare-up. Dr. Craig will customize a treatment based on your specific needs.
#2: Enjoy Deep Dermal Rejuvenation
PRP is packed with skin-healthy nutrients. Microneedling gives the PRP solution access to the deeper layers of tissue by creating tiny micro-wounds on the surface of the skin. Once applied, the PRP encourages faster cellular turnover resulting in more noticeable results right away.
#3: Facilitate A Speedy Recovery
When you add PRP topically after your microneedling session, the platelets immediately go to work. The PRP enhances your body’s natural wound-healing process allowing you to get back to your life more quickly. Most men and women that undergo microneedling with PRP are able to return to normal activities the very next day with minimal restrictions.
Is Microneedling with PRP Right for Me?
You may be able to benefit from the procedure if you’re looking to improve your skin’s overall health. Because the procedure enlists the help of your own PRP and doesn’t involve any harsh chemicals or laser energy, microneedling is a safe and effective treatment for nearly anyone. However, the best way to determine what’s right for you is through an in-person consultation with a skincare specialist such as Dr. Mark Craig.
I saw Dr. Craig and his staff. From the time that I walked in the door they were friendly and informative. I didn’t have a long wait time. Dr. Craig came in the room talked with me like I was his only patient that day. I would recommend him and his sweet staff to anyone.
