Microneedling with PRP

Microneedling with PRP is an advanced technique that induces collagen production and helps you feel young again. Microneedling is a non-invasive procedure that creates small wounds in the skin without causing pain or invasive treatment. As a result of the needle punctures, our natural wound healing process and collagen and elastin production are stimulated. The stimulation of collagen helps to rejuvenate the skin and reduce wrinkles. A variety of problems such as acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage can be treated using micro needling. When platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is injected into the treated tissues, microneedling is enhanced. This technology is widely used by patients looking to accelerate their rejuvenation process. PRP microneedling is accomplished by spinning a small sample of your blood in a centrifuge, which separates the plasma from the platelets. PRP with microneedling treatments can help with fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, and sunspots for skin rejuvenation and results.
