At Olansky Dermatology & Aesthetics, we offer PRP Microneedling to help rejuvenate your skin using the natural, proven method of distributing platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to increase cellular growth in conjunction with the process of microneedling, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the treatment areas. This combination can drastically improve the look and tone of skin, and is often used to treat (but is not limited to):
- acne scars
- surgical scars
- wrinkles and fine lines
- sun damage
- large pores
- uneven skin texture
PRP Microneedling is a nonsurgical treatment with zero downtime, allowing our patients to receive service without any interruption to their schedules.
The Power of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet-Rich Plasma has been used in medical procedures utilizing the body’s own blood to regenerate new cellular growth and assist with healing for years, but not until recently was it discovered to have cosmetic benefits as well. The human body has the natural capability to heal itself. Regeneration of the new tissue is accomplished by utilizing your own natural production of stem cells. PRP introduces concentrated platelets rich in bioactive proteins, which release growth factors to stimulate cellular regeneration and accelerate tissue repair.
