Micro Needling With PRP in Hackensack, NJ

Micro-needling is a cosmetic dermatological treatment that implements a roller with ultra-fine needles to prick the facial skin. This process helps heal scars and reduce the signs of aging by stimulating extra collagen production. Micro-needling combined with plasma-rich platelets (PRP) uses part of the patient’s own blood to rejuvenate their skin. Right after rolling the fine needles over the skin, platelets are applied to the area.   In dermatology, PRP is offered as a possible hair loss treatment and also to help promote younger looking skin. PRP can also help speed up wound healing. Reintroduction of PRP back into the skin encourages cell turnover, which increases collagen and elastin production. Your skin will look smoother, tighter and fuller. PRP can help reduce wrinkles and deep creases, plump sagging skin, enhance complexion, and diminish acne and other scarring. The procedure takes about 45 minutes to one hour, with little to no downtime.
