PRP with Microneedling
Collagen Is All That Stands Between You & Your Wrinkles
Microneedling is a procedure that is used to create tiny micro-channels in the skin. These microchannels then stimulate collagen production, retexturize imperfections, and allow skincare products to penetrate at a deeper level, therefore working more effectively. Adding PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) can help your skin heal even deeper and more quickly. PRP contains certain proteins, including growth factors, that help skin tissue repair itself.
PRP and microneedling can be used on all areas of the body including face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, abdomen, and back. It is often used for retexturizing acne scars, stretch marks, brown spots, and fine lines.
Adding Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment uses your own cells to promote and speed up the skin’s healing process. During PRP, we are able to infuse these plasma rich cells into the skin with careful precision. By utilizing your own cells, the PRP treatment will enhance the microneedling treatment. This is essential for a quick recovery and better results following the procedure.
Why it works
Microneedling essentially kick starts your skin’s natural healing process, forcing it to produce more collagen. This collagen works toward improving your skin’s texture and things like pore size, acne, hyperpigmentation, scars, wrinkles, and more! At Ooh La La, we perform medical grade microneedling, which goes deeper into skin than microneedling through a non medical office. This allows us to treat your skin even more comprehensively, leading to better results. Adding Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) helps even the deepest layers of your skin heal and repair to give you the best results possible.
