Microneedling with PRP

Hello Dayton1186,We recommend microneedling be done using PRP.  Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) utilizes your body’s own materials to create a serum that increases the growth factors of your skin. It can be used by itself to promote the rebuilding of skin.Hope this helps! Dr Faraz

Microneedling Products

Great question!
Microneedling is a fantastic way to get great absorption of your skin care products.  As a glide, I like to use a hyaluronic acid or even more preferably, PRP or platelet rich plasma.  PRP is a component of your own blood, which has concentrated growth factors.  This is combination with a deep microneedling treatment is a killer combination to combat fine lines, wrinkles, unwanted scarring etc.  
Best of luck to you!

Microneedling Treatment

Microneedling is a great way to get specific ingredients deeper into the skin.Typical products that are used during a microneedling treatment include: PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) derived from your own blood. PRP contains Growth Factors that help rejuvenate and heal the skin, We also like to use a serum that contains hyaluronic acid or a Vitamin C Serum during the procedure.
