About Microneedling with PRP
Cosmetic Surgery Specialists is proud to offer microneedling, a treatment that punctures small holes in the skin on your face and neck 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, schedule a private consult with our experienced team of skin care specialists.
"My search was over after being referred to Dr. Brackup!!!. My son's wedding was coming up in August, 2016. My eyes were horrible .When I smiled you saw know eye's. I met one surgeon that was scared to remove the lower bags. How would that look? Didn't make sense. With Time running out by chance I when to a new hairdresser, that had her eyes done and look beautiful. Even though Dr. had a busy schedule,he made it a point to fit me in for June 28th. I was assured my eye's would look beautiful by August 20th. Dr. Brackup was right. I had Upper and lower procedures done. Dr. sculpted my eyes to compliment my high cheek bones. They are beautiful. At 60 years old I look twenty years younger!! Dr. Brackup and his entire staff were kind and honestly the best experience I ever had. He is gifted with hands of gold. He only works from the neck up and is a oculoplastic surgeon. My confident's is through the roof. I walk with my head high for the first time in a very long time. Thank you, Dr. Brackup for setting this butterfly free!! Before pictures click on Rosemarie P. Thanks"- R.P. / Yelp / Apr 06, 2017

"Dr Brackup and Staff Are First Rate! - I'm now about seven weeks post surgery and I am thrilled with the results of my deep plane facelift. After turning 60, it became clear that fillers were an ineffective waste of money to treat worsening jowls and sagging. Tired of a losing battle with gravity, and feeling much younger than I was looking, I turned to Dr. Brackup after research on this site and others, and after meeting the doc and his team. I was looking for three things in my cosmetic surgery provider: (1) confidence in their caring and competency, including board certification; (2) assurance that the results would be natural; (3) transparency and expected accuracy in what to expect before, during and after the procedure. I can say that Dr. Brackup and his staff have scored high on all three counts. During the initial consultation, I never had the feeling that Dr Brackup or his staff tried to sell or suggest anything that needed "fixing," rather they responded in their professional judgment with the best treatment recommendations for what was bothering me. Once I selected Dr. Brackup, his office and surgery center provided the appropriate level of pre-op instruction. Care the day of and following surgery was first rate, and I thought his affiliated surgery center and staff were terrific, too. Best of all, I'm simply delighted with my new look (and the friends in whom I've confided have been effusively positive in their comments). If you think you're ready to take the plunge, I can confidently recommend Dr. Brackup and his practice."- G. / RealSelf / Oct 02, 2023
"Dr. Brackup and the staff are great. Everyone is very kind in the office and they make you feel comfortable about discussing whatever it is you’re looking for. He will be very straight forward with you on your concerns of getting something done and not just agree to everything you want. This shows that he cares!"- K.G. / Yelp / Sep 15, 2023
"I had upper/lower eyelid blepharoplasty with lower lid laser skin resurfacing. Everyone in the office is very professional and friendly. They are very prompt with your appointments, no unnecessary waiting. I just had my last follow up appointment yesterday and I am completely amazed and happy with results. The took the final picture and placed it next to the before picture and I was surprised how much of a difference there was. It was hard for me to honestly see it because I have been dealing with being told how tired I look, how unattractive I look and how angry I look due to the circles under my eyes since I was 15. I am 61 now so my brain is so conditioned to believe I look a certain way. Recovery was not bad and Dr Brackup and the staff were always available if I had any questions or needed to see them. Highly recommend. Also, they are truthful with you about the results you can expect based on you, your skin, your circumstances and expectations. "- L.H. / Healthgrades / Aug 18, 2023
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.
Before the microneedling portion of your session, our Registered Nurse 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 and growth factors 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.
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.
