Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery offers microneedling with PRP therapy, a treatment that removes old and damaged skin cells on the face, neck, and chest to stimulate skin repair. As an additional benefit, your very own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be applied to the same area to help tissue heal and permit the skin to grow new cells.
Microneeding with PRP Treatment Details
Prior to the microneedling portion of your treatment, someone from our medical staff will draw your blood for the PRP collection. The drawn blood will then be taken to our lab for the separation process, where your platelets and growth factors will be turned into PRP.
Next, your skin will be numbed. This takes 10-15 minutes, and then the microneedling will begin (which takes 20-25 minutes). For the microneedling treatment, Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery employs innovative technology (SkinPen®) to create small holes in your skin. The little needles used will not damage your skin, but will instead help stimulate the production of collagen. Once the microneedling is done, the PRP serum will be placed on the skin to sink in. The PRP serum will remain on the skin to be fully absorbed, but you’ll be able to cleanse later in the day.
This treatment can also be combined with a filler or wrinkle relaxer for even better results. Total treatment time is about 45 minutes.
