What is Microneedling with PRP?
Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic is proud to offer microneedling, a treatment that punctures tiny holes in the skin on your face, neck, or torso to stimulate skin repair. As an additional bonus, your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be applied to the same region to further help cells heal and permit the skin to grow new cells. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jean-Denis Boucher performs these two procedures together to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, scars, spots, and other skin problems. The texture of your skin may be significantly enhanced to appear smoother and more even without damaging the skin. If you'd like to learn more about our microneedling with PRP treatment, we invite you to schedule a consultation at one of our locations in San Antonio, TX.
What to Expect with Microneedling with PRP
You could be a great candidate for microneedling with PRP if you wish to address uneven skin tone, dry skin, rough texture, age spots, loose skin, acne, wrinkles, and scarring. Prior to the microneedling part of your session, we will draw your blood for the PRP collection. The drawn blood will then spun through a centrifuge to separate the platelets, growth factors, and stem cells into PRP. For the microneedling therapy, Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic employs state-of-the-art technology to create tiny holes into your skin, helping to stimulate the creation of collagen. Once the microneedling is complete, the PRP serum will be put on the skin to sink in. Afterward, you may have some temporary swelling, redness, and bruising. Most patients see their final outcomes within about a month as the skin works to fix and heal itself.
