MICRONEEDLING WITH PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)
Microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is the modern woman’s way to achieve glowing skin. In the expert hands of Dr. Sonny O this powerful and noninvasive treatment is producing beautiful results.
The first FDA-cleared microneedling device, the SkinPen, is Dr. Sonny O Plastic Surgery’s secret weapon against aging, dullness and facial acne scars. SkinPen microneedling is a natural solution for all skin types – light and dark – with little to no downtime. It is safe, comfortable, and cost effective.
Dramatic results are heightened when microneedling is paired with PRP. This innovative treatment is a step beyond traditional topical skincare regimes with long-term results. Microneedling is a treatment that involves the use of tiny needles that produce micro-injuries to the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. Collagen production restores dewy youthfulness and strength to skin and body tissue. To speed the healing process, microneedling is further enhanced by injecting PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) into the treated tissue.
Setting the industry standard for safety, SkinPen Microneedling with ProGen PRP can be used in several different areas of the body, including the face, neck, décolleté, arms, abdomen, back, hands and legs.
HOW PRP THERAPY WORKS
PRP is created from a person’s own blood. It is “spun down” to create a concentrated blend of plasma cells and specific growth factors. When injected into tissue, the platelet rich plasma bathes the cells to naturally stimulate the healing process. This advanced technique is often used by orthopaedic physicians to help reduce professional athletes’ recovery time. The regenerative technique of PRP in conjunction with microneedling restores and rejuvenates for a firmer, more youthful skin texture and flexibility. The results are long-term.
