Wrinkles, Microneedling and PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma)
This is the case of a 57-year-old female who came to the clinic with a desire to improve the quality of her facial skin and reduce some of the wrinkling. She was offered PRP and microneedling. She underwent 5 treatments approximately 6 weeks apart.
We took her own plasma, PRP and used it as a gliding mechanism while using the sterile microneedling device on her face. We used a needle depth of 0.75mm for the forehead and 1-2 mm for the cheeks chin and rest of the face and neck. She was given a topical anesthetic cream to the face to numb the area and so the patient experienced minimal to no discomfort. Her results are depicted in the pictures below showing an improvement in skin tone, color and more smoothness. The patient was pleased with the results.
