A glowing, refreshed complexion can provide a wonderful sense of pride in one’s appearance and create a positive first impression, both socially and professionally. While topical products can help improve the skin in the short term, over time, the body’s production of collagen and elastin slows, and a deeper commitment to one’s skincare regimen may be in order.
Microneedling with PRP is an innovative anti-aging treatment that provides stellar results. The natural growth factors contained in platelet-rich plasma help revive and repair compromised skin cells. Dr. Shafa is excited to offer microneedling with PRP as part of his cutting-edge arsenal of world-class skincare solutions.
What is microneedling with PRP?
During microneedling, the skin undergoes tiny micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s collagen production response. Renewed collagen improves the skin’s underlying structural support, giving way to a more youthful appearance and a smoother complexion. The benefits of microneedling are enhanced by PRP (platelet-rich plasma), which injects healing, reparative growth factors into the skin. The PRP comes from the client’s own blood.
Microneedling with PRP can be used to treat:
