What is Microneedling?
This advanced skin care treatment utilizes the rejuvenating benefits of your own cells natural healing processes. During treatment, a specialized tool is used on the skin that contains a series of tiny microneedles on the tip. The microneedles work to create tiny micro-punctures in the dermis layer of skin. These tiny punctures activate the body’s natural healing response on a cellular level. It successfully activates the promotion of collagen production in the skin to the damaged treatment area. This effectively works to renew and restore the skin. Through your cells natural function, you can restore a vibrant and youthful appearance to your skin.
What is Microneedling with PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, involves collecting a small amount of the patient’s own blood. It is then spun in order to collect the platelet rich cells that are responsible for the body’s healing functions. When combining microneedling with PRP, microneedling is done first in order to create channels in the skin and to begin the restoration process. Then, the PRP blood can be topically, or injected, into the treatment area where the skin can more effectively absorb the platelet rich blood for enhanced rejuvenating results.

What is PRP hair restoration Therapy?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a treatment that uses platelets found in your own blood to help naturally stimulate hair growth. During your appointment, a small blood sample is withdrawn through a very fine needle and spun in a centrifuge for several minutes. As it spins, blood plasma will bond with other reparative factors within the sample to create PRP. The PRP solution is then re-administered into the scalp to stimulate the development of new hair follicles. PRP is one of the most natural solutions to safely and effectively promote healthy hair growth.
