Stimulate your skin's natural healing process

Microneedling with PRP is a cosmetic treatment that stimulates collagen production by rolling fine needles over the skin (microneedling) and applying platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which is derived from a small sample of your own blood.  Commonly known as the "vampire facial", PRP is used in this procedure because it contains a variety of growth factors and other beneficial proteins. Platelets help blood clot, so they are vital for healing wounds and injuries. 

On the day of your treatment, a small sample of blood will be drawn and then spun in order to separate out the platelets. After a topical anesthetic is applied to your face, Dr. Jain will use a microneedling pen on your face, then apply the PRP into the treated areas of the skin.  A balm is then applied to your face to reduce redness and irritation. The treatment usually takes less than two hours in total, with little to no downtime. 

Microneedling with PRP can improve a variety of skin conditions - including the ones listed below - as well as rejuvenate the skin.  Call or make an appointment with us to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jain to determine if this procedure is right for you.
