About Microneedling with PRP

Cosmetic Surgery Specialists is proud to offer microneedling, a treatment that punctures small holes in the skin on your neck, face, or torso to stimulate skin restoration. As an additional bonus, your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) may be administered to the same region to help cells heal and permit the skin to begin growing new cells. Both of these procedures together are usually known as the vampire facial and can decrease the appearance of wrinkles, scars, spots, large pores, along with other skin conditions. The feel of your skin may be significantly enhanced to look smoother and more even in tone without damaging the epidermis. If you'd like to find out more on microneedling with PRP procedure, schedule a private consult with board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Alan Brackup at his office in Langhorne, PA.

Ideal Candidates

The perfect candidate for microneedling with PRP is any individual seeking to alter the look or feel of the top layer of their skin. Uneven skin tone, dry skin, coarse texture, loose skin, age spots, acne, wrinkles, and scarring are skin conditions which may benefit from a microneedling with PRP therapy. This procedure may also be utilized to fight the effects of sun damage that might have caused the skin to have a rough feel or hyperpigmentation.

Procedure Technique

Before the microneedling portion of your session, a member of our team will take a sample of your blood for your PRP collection. The blood will then be transferred to our laboratory for the separation process during which the platelets, growth factors, and stem cells can be turned into PRP. For your microneedling therapy, Cosmetic Surgery Specialists employs innovative technology to create small micro-injuries in your skin. The tiny needles used won't harm your skin but instead, will help stimulate the creation of collagen. When the microneedling is done, the PRP serum will be placed on the epidermis to sink in. Once the PRP is completely absorbed, we'll clear away the serum and cleanse the skin.

What to Expect

After your procedure, you could encounter some normal side effects, such as swelling, bruising, and redness. Dr. Brackup recommends that patients avoid the use of makeup, do not cleanse with exfoliating face washes, or swim in pools for around three days following the session. Activities like this could expose the treatment area to strong bacteria and chemicals which may cause negative side effects. You also need to avoid exposure to the sun or use protective measures when planning to be outdoors. Full results are usually noticed within the first month as the skin works to repair and heal itself.
