What is micro-needling with PRP for facial rejuvenation?
Micro-needling (https://prpkits.com/shop/electric-microneedle-pen/) is a cosmetic procedure that has been around for several years where a device with super fine needles is used to create very, very fine channels into the skin in a process that has been described as being akin to aerating a lawn! This process stimulates collagen and results in much improved skin structure, tone and texture. PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma has also been around for several years in use in various medical specialties where a patient’s own blood is processed to extract the platelets with their associated growth factors, and then they are re-injected back into the patient in the relevant area being treated. PRP is also now being used with great results for facial rejuvenation.
Both procedures are ones whose time has come and their use in combination with each other is particularly exciting for cosmetic dermatologists and their patients.
Patients love the results!
