What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a technique that uses many microscopic needles to pierce the surface of your skin, promoting your body’s natural healing response, cell regeneration, and the production of collagen and elastin (proteins that significantly improve your skin’s elasticity).

What are the benefits of microneedling with PRP?

Microneedling with PRP therapy uses a sample of your blood, which is processed to extract the platelets and create a platelet-rich serum. When your PRP serum is ready, Dr. Caitlin Fanning, ND injects it into your skin for a regenerative boost. When PRP is injected or infused into your skin, it promotes the production of collagen and other tissues that rejuvenate your appearance.

Your skin becomes tighter and better toned, while lines are diminished.
Incorporating PRP with microneedling boosts your body’s natural healing response. The micro-punctures allow the PRP to reach into your skin’s layers where it works to stimulate healing and cell regeneration. This enhances the results of your treatment, helping your body produce new elastin and collagen.

Microneedling with PRP is minimally invasive and doesn’t require time off to recover. You should start to notice a change in your appearance within a week or so. Every patient has different needs, and Dr. Caitlin Fanning, ND provides customized advice to let you know what to expect during and after treatment.
