PRP, or “Liquid Gold” as we like to call it, is the perfect solution to stimulate cell growth within the body. The patient’s blood is drawn, processed, and then used for treatment. The amazing benefits of PRP can be used to stimulate hair growth, diminish the appearance of scarring, encourage the body’s production of collagen, and much more.
PRP is produced from your blood. It is a concentration of platelets, which circulate through your blood and are critical for blood clotting and repairing damaged tissue. Platelets and the liquid plasma portion of the blood contain many factors that are essential for cell recruitment, multiplication, and specialization.
Microneedling is a controlled treatment that creates micro-injuries to the skin using a medical needling device. This stimulates the skin’s natural repair process to produce collagen and elastin. The benefits of microneedling include:
Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
Decreased acne scars and other scars
Evens skin tone
Improves skin texture and laxity
Shrinks pore size
Stimulates hair growth
Minimizes stretch marks
Results after microneedling facial:
3-6 days – glowing skin
3-6 weeks – new blood vessels form and collagen begins to form
3-6 months – overall improvement of skin tone, texture, and reduction in fine lines and wrinkles

Plasma is a component of our blood and contains proteins which help the blood to clot and support cell growth. Platelets are found within the blood and are responsible for recognizing and repairing damaged cells by forming a plug, or clot. PRP Treatments use the body’s own healing processes to rejuvenate the skin and promote new cell growth.
During treatment, Ashley will draw blood from your arm. The tubes of blood will be placed and spun in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the plasma. This process concentrates the platelet count to about 4x the normal amount. The platelet rich plasma is then applied topically or injected into the skin for treatment. PRP has been shown to help fade darkness under eyes, provide natural facial volume restoration, and even help with hair loss when injected in to the scalp.
For injections, bruising and swelling is possible, plan 2-3 weeks ahead of any events/vacations.
For microneedling with PRP, recovery lasts from 1-2 days with reddened skin, but no peeling.
