Platelets and associated proteins are rich in growth factors that promote cell replication, regulate normal cell metabolism, enhance blood vessel growth and create an environment of healing and repair in the treated area. Combining PRP with microneedling, also known as a PRP facial, significantly increases the quality of results compared to microneedling alone.

What can I expect from a PRP with microneedling, or PRP facial, treatment?

PRP with microneedling improves skin texture, skin irregularities, acne scars, surgical or traumatic scars, fine lines, pores and mildly tightens the skin by stimulating collagen in the dermal layer similar to CO2 lasers and Retin-A. PRP with microneedling (PRP facial) stimulates more collagen than microneedling alone.

What is PRP? How does it work?

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) comes from your own blood. Platelets contain granules that contain multiple growth factors. These growth factors can attract stem cells to the area of treatment resulting in improved blood flow and an environment of healing that can enhance the results of microneedling.

How many PRP facial treatments do I need?

We recommend 3-6 treatments depending on the desired outcome. Scar improvements, such as acne scarring, can take closer to 6 treatments whereas skin tightening and texture treatments can take as few as 3. The treatments are performed a month apart. During your consultation, we can advise you how many treatments would be right for you!

Am I a candidate?

Any skin type is a candidate for PRP with microneedling, also known as PRP facial. Individuals looking to improve fine lines, skin texture, scars, skin thinning, laxity or pore size are good candidates for the procedure.

Do PRP with microneedling treatments hurt?

Topical anesthetic is applied to the area treated for 15-20 minutes prior to treatment and this eliminates any discomfort associated with the PRP with microneedling or PRP facial treatment. The only other discomfort experienced is that of the needlestick to draw the platelets. This is performed by our experienced medical assistants or registered nurses and not by the aesthetician performing the treatment.

When will I see results?

Improvement in skin texture will be noticed almost immediately after a PRP with microneedling (PRP facial) treatment. Scars and skin tightening results take closer to 3 months since it takes our bodies approximately 3 months to make collagen.

Practice Update re: COVID-19 situation

As a valued member of the Northside Plastic Surgery family, I want to personally update you on steps our practice has taken to protect you and your health in light of the COVID-19 situation.

As it has always been, the safety and health of our patients and team members remains our highest priority. As your physician, I want to thank you for your support and the confidence you have in our practice. In response to the corona virus, we have taken the following additional measures to protect our patients:

  1. Until April 30, 2020, we are waiving our $150 fee for Virtual Consultations for all new patients.
  2. Our teams are receiving ongoing briefings, trainings, and enhanced operating protocols as the COVID-19 situation evolves.
  3. We are introducing the “No ‘waiting’ waiting room”. In general, we are reducing waiting times; but also, as a high-end practice, we are taking advantage of our larger size and multiple VIP waiting areas to maximize social distancing and the number of individuals in each reception area.
  4. We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas (including lobbies, furniture, elevators, door handles, exam chairs, public bathrooms, etc.) and have continued the use of hospital-grade disinfectant.
  5. We are asking all patients and staff members to wash their hands and use hand sanitizer when entering the office and exam rooms.
  6. Since we have our own fully accredited on-site surgery center, we are not subject to actively infected patients using our operating rooms such as in hospitals. This provides a great security blanket for our patients. We are currently performing at full capacity and completely prepared to perform all scheduled surgeries and procedures and are taking all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and well-being.
  7. We are postponing all advanced training sessions for visiting physicians and providers until mid-April.
  8. We are performing regular and careful screening of patients with a bias for suspicion that a patient might have the corona virus
  9. We are instructing staff to welcome our patients with a nod or wave instead of fist bumps, elbow bumps, or handshakes.
  10. We ask that all patients with upper respiratory symptoms such as cough, fever, shortness of breath to please cancel and reschedule your appointments. We advise you to call your family doctor if you have any of these symptoms. Also, if you have recently traveled to a country with high rates of the corona virus or have been on a cruise, please reschedule your visit for at least 14 days from the time of your visit.
  11. For more, you can always find up-to-date and accurate information on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.

Thank you for being a loyal patient. We will remain attentive to this situation and keep you updated on any changes with the practice. We are privileged to serve you and look forward to seeing you soon.
