How is the Procedure Performed?

During your session, a small amount of blood is drawn and inserted into the centrifuge, which extracts the protein-rich PRP. One of our skilled, precision-minded practitioners will then use a microneedling pen to create micro-wounds within the pores. This helps drive the growth factors deep into the dermis while also stimulating the renewal of collagen for a tighter, firmer complexion, through microneedling in Redwood City.

What Concerns Can Be Addressed with PRP Microneedling?

  • Poor skin tone and texture
  • Loss of volume in the face, neck, and hands
  • Fine lines and wrinkles beneath the eyes
  • Under-eye grooves
  • Creases around the mouth
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks

What is PRP?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a blood product rich in growth factors and nutrients. The patient’s blood is placed in a centrifuge, which separates out the plasma and platelets. PRP boosts stem cells in the skin, triggering them to regenerate healthier, more youthful tissue. Collagen reserves are also boosted, creating a more supple and hydrated complexion from within.

What is PRP Microneedling?

PRP microneedling pairs traditional collagen induction therapy with the application of growth factor-rich platelet-rich plasma for exponentially more youthful results. The process can not only provide firmer, softer skin but can also improve skin texture, color, and tone. With minimal downtime or discomfort, PRP microneedling in Redwood City has quickly become a go-to solution for patients seeking top-tier facial rejuvenation.

PRP microneedling is an ideal solution for almost every skin type, regardless of texture and tone. It is even an option for those with sensitive skin. Patients who are currently suffering from an active skin infection, lesions, or an acne breakout should postpone their treatment, as should those with a history of psoriasis or eczema. As with any cosmetic treatment, patients should be: 

  • Mentally and physically healthy
  • And have realistic, positive expectations for their results based on a private consultation with our caring and knowledgeable team.

What Can I Expect After My Session?

Recovery after PRP microneedling will depend on the extent of the treatment, and the areas addressed.

Some patients only need 24 hours of downtime, while others may need 2-3 days.

You may experience some minor signs of irritation or redness at the treatment sites, but these symptoms tend to fade quickly. While your skin is recovering, you should stay away from alcohol-based skincare products and only wash your face twice a day.

Until your complexion has healed, it’s a good idea to avoid vigorous exercise and other activities that will make you sweat. Within a few weeks of your treatment, you will begin to notice firmer, softer, and more luminous skin after microneedling in Redwood City
