Microneedling with PRFM

Posted February 12th, 2020 by Social Media and filed in Mirconeedling PRP, PRP

Microneedling is my FAVORITE minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment available right now!!  I can’t say enough about it! This procedure uses several very small “micro” needles to create tiny injuries over the surface of the treated area.  When your body has an injury its natural response is to heal. The body triggers your collagen production to repair the skin. Increased collagen means smaller pores, better skin tone/texture and fewer fine lines and wrinkles.  

The only thing better than Microneedling, in my opinion, is adding the power of PRFM to the procedure.  Microneedling with PRFM uses your own PRP (platelet rich plasma). We apply the plasma over the surface of the area to be treated and with the microneedling pen it is driven into dermis.  This is very effective because it drives your own healthy platelets below the skin’s surface to promote healing and stimulate collagen production.  

Our practice takes your plasma to the next level.  Similar to the procedure for getting PRP, we collect a small amount of your blood using sterile technique, and spin it down in a centrifuge to  separate your platelets and growth factors from your red and white blood cells. We take it one step further by using specialized tubes that are designed for maximum filtering and coated with calcium chloride so that the platelets remain viable longer and offer a controlled growth factor release from hours to days!  By concentrating platelets at the site of injury we have the potential to enhance the body’s natural capacity for healing. This procedure is most commonly done on the face, neck and chest but is also very effective in reducing the appearance of scars on the face or body from acne or surgery.  

Most people hear “needles” and think this is a painful procedure but that is not the case at all.  It is very comfortable and almost feels like an aggressive facial. We do offer a topical numbing cream to make it comfortable.  The downtime is minimal. You may look and feel like you have a mild sunburn for the first day. You can use makeup just 12 hours after the procedure.  

For the best results we recommend a series of 3 treatments scheduled 4 weeks apart.
