Microneedling Willowbrook ILWhen it comes to buying new products or trying new treatments, we like to do our research first. Are we allergic to any ingredients? Do we already have a product that claims to help with that issue we’re shopping for? Questioning what we buy helps us stay focused in what we’re looking for, and it keeps us from collecting multiple products.

But when we find a treatment that seems to suit our skin issues and we know that we don’t have anything at home that is going to work as quickly, what do we do? We book an appointment! If you’re struggling to find the right treatment to help boost collagen production and give the surface of your skin a much-needed revamp, then keep reading. Microneedling treatments combined with PRP might be the perfect treatment for you.

What is PRP?

Platelet Rich Plasma (also called PRP) is created from a small sample of the patient’s blood that is collected in the office. It is then placed in a centrifuge, spun, and divided into its separate components. PRP is the liquid portion of the blood infused with a high concentration of platelets. These platelets contain a high number of natural growth factors.

PRP usage is incredibly helpful in healing orthopedics and sports medicine patients, and is now an extremely popular cosmetic treatment because of how well it helps skin regenerate itself. We recommend combining PRP with our microneedling and laser treatments to give your skin a boost.

Microneedling

We utilize professional microneedle devices which go deep into the skin, penetrating the dermis layer and stimulating collagen production. This is one of the best reasons to receive a microneedle treatment, because more collagen makes your skin look younger, fuller, and more refreshed. The added benefits of PRP include quicker healing and better results than microneedle treatments alone.

Laser Treatments

We offer laser treatments to help support the beautiful texture and look of your skin. PRP can be added on to any laser treatments to help the tone, texture, and volume of your skin.
