Dr. Yovino takes skin rejuvenation to the next level by adding Platelet Rich Plasma or “PRP” to the MicroNeedling treatment.
This simple, in-office process involves drawing a small amount of blood from your arm, centrifuging (spinning) the blood to separate out the plasma & platelets from the red blood cells, and then adding the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) back into your skin, either topically and/or through injections.
For patients that aren’t quite ready for surgery, MicroNeedling with PRP can be the next best thing for overall facial and skin rejuvenation with no downtime.
This Treatment is Highly Effective For:
- Reducing fine lines & wrinkles
- Tightening & toning skin
- Replacing lost volume; can either be used alone or in conjunction with fillers, resulting in a much more natural result
- Eliminating crow’s feet & dark circles
- Diminishing acne scars
Science & Data
As part of the body’s healing ability, platelets and other components in human blood migrate to the point of care. Platelets are well known to release numerous growth factors that respond to tissue injury and initiate and promote the conditions for healing. Eclipse PRP™ is an autologous system that allows Dr. Yovino to prepare platelet-rich plasma in-office. The platelet-rich plasma is optimally concentrated with minimal amounts of contaminating red and white blood cells. This system has been safely used in hundreds of thousands of medical procedures worldwide and can now be utilized for advanced aesthetic purposes.
Dr. Sarah Yovino MD demonstrates a safe medical grade facial using microneedling and PRP platelet rich plasma. This procedure reverses the signs of aging and leads to decreased pore size, improved skin texture and tone, and increased collagen production to name some. Performed comfortably in the office with topical numbing cream, there is minimal downtime usually just for the day of the procedure. You will start enjoying the results within days.
