Microneedling and PRP
The addition of Plasma Rich Protein (PRP) to microneedling techniques has been shown to improve results and speed the healing of the treatment. This option utilizes your own body’s blood plasma to serve as a concentrated source of growth factors that stimulate collagen, healing, and rejuvenating the skin. Because PRP is from your own blood, there is no risk of an allergic reaction and is a very natural product!
