Microneedling is a procedure in which tiny needles are used to create microscopic channels in the skin allowing topical solutions to penetrate deeper into the skin and work more effectively. Microneedling is safe and effective and a great way to smooth and brighten the skin. It can be done at varying depths. Dermal rollers can be bought for home use but the procedure, under a medical professional’s supervision, can also be performed in a medical grade depth, making it much more effective. It stimulates collagen production, creating micro-injuries that push the skin’s healing powers into high gear.
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP for short, is a treatment that utilizes the patient’s own blood to rejuvenate the skin and stimulate collagen production.
When combined, these treatments can help to correct many skin concerns, such as age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and more. In addition, it is a great way to brighten the overall complexion while evening skin tone. Dr. Miller and Shauna McLaughlin, PA-C offer Microneedling with PRP in order to bring out her patients’ natural beauty.
Microneedling with PRP is a relatively painless and quick procedure with little to no downtime. There may be some swelling and redness following the procedure, which should go away on its own in a matter of hours or days, depending on the individual. It’s a great treatment option for people who don’t have a lot of time to spare for lengthy recovery times, and can be done periodically as skin maintenance once the initial sessions are over. Depending on the skin concern to be addressed, multiple treatments may be needed for optimal results. Dr. Miller or Shauna will discuss the appropriate number of treatments during your consultation.
