Micro-Needling with PRP
In addition to the natural side effects of aging, our skin is always under attack from environmental pollutants, the sun’s damaging rays and bacteria and dirt that cause acne. Micro-needling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin resurfacing treatment designed to combat these conditions and restore skin quality.
Micro-needling that uses tiny needles to create small holes in the skin to provoke the body to begin its natural healing response. This healing response repairs skin damage caused by aging, sun exposure, environmental pollutants and acne and produces new, healthy skin cells.
Micro-needling also causes the body to produce collagen, which helps to tighten the skin and improve elasticity.
The benefit of micro-needling with PRP:
For maximum benefits, Dr. Levine combines micro-needling with platelet-rich plasma or PRP. PRP is a potent and powerful healing serum that is derived from your blood’s plasma, stem cells and growth factors. This PRP combination is applied to the areas after micro-needling treatment to promote healing and repair.
The results of a micro-needling with PRP procedure are typically seen within 4-8 weeks. Micro-needling sessions take 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the size of the area being treated and are usually spaced 4-6 weeks apart to maximize results.
