Call the office or book an appointment online today to find out how microneedling with PRP can work for you.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a special roller to create micro-wounds on the surface of your skin. These wounds trigger your body’s healing response and stimulate the increased production of collagen.
Collagen is an essential protein necessary for healthy skin. As you age, you lose collagen as your body decreases how much of the protein it creates. This collagen loss causes crepey skin, wrinkles, creases, and fine lines. You also lose volume in your face and hands.
To boost the effectiveness of your microneedling procedure, Dr. Baron offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections and topicals.
PRP enhances the results of a microneedling treatment by further stimulating your body to heal itself. PRP contains special growth factors that promote the growth of new, healthy skin cells to replace damaged cells.
Dr. Baron creates PRP from your blood for the procedure. After drawing a sample of your blood, she prepares it in a centrifuge, which quickly spins the blood and separates PRP from other materials.
You may benefit from a topical application of PRP, or Dr. Baron can inject PRP into specific areas of your face to improve the health and appearance of your skin.
A series of treatments may be necessary to achieve your aesthetic goals. Generally, you schedule two to four treatments six weeks apart. Dr. Baron can also recommend jbSKIN skin care products to nourish your skin and provides a complimentary private label silver ointment post-needling plus a deep-moisturizing face mask take-home kit.
You may be a candidate for microneedling with PRP if your skin is generally healthy, but you are interested in firming loose skin on your face, neck, chest, hands, or forearms.
Microneedling with PRP can also address common skin flaws like:
Microneedling with PRP is a minimally invasive procedure that doesn’t require a long recovery time and has minimal risk for side effects. It’s an effective treatment option if you’re looking to optimize the health and texture of your skin without incisions or extended downtime.
Because Dr. Baron uses your blood for the PRP in your treatment, you don’t have to worry about adverse reactions. She also customizes your microneedling procedure to your specific needs, and her techniques minimize the risk of infection and scarring.
