Microneedling with PRP Hair Restoration

Microneedling with PRP Hair Restoration

Are you discomforted by how common skin flaws such as age lines or acne scars are affecting your image? Our team at Torrey Pines Dermatology & Laser Center in San Diego is committed to ensuring you look and feel like the best version of yourself. We offer microneedling through the cutting-edge COSMOPen device to help you achieve a look you’ll love.

PRP has been used for years with orthopedic and dental procedures. The most common conditions, in dermatology, for PRP therapy include: fine wrinkles around the eyes, lips, forehead and neck, nasolabial grooves, acne marks, bags and dark circles under the eyes and loose and saggy skin. The newest application is to assist with hair restoration by applying PRP after a microneedling procedure on the scalp.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is an advanced non-surgical treatment that utilizes a series of microneedles to reduce certain signs of aging in the skin. The COSMOPen device works to create a series of microchannels in the superficial layer of skin, stimulating the production of collagen to repair the skin on a cellular level. Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), microneedling with the COSMOPen is a non-surgical means of tightening the skin for a younger complexion.

Microneedling with COSMOPen can address a variety of cosmetic concerns including:

  • Acne
  • Wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Enlarged pores
  • And more

We also offer COSMOPen microneedling in conjunction with PRP hair restoration therapy to achieve ultimate revitalization!

What is PRR Hair Restoration Therapy?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a treatment that uses platelets found in your own blood to help naturally stimulate hair growth. During your appointment, a small blood sample is withdrawn through a very fine needle and spun in a centrifuge for several minutes. As it spins, blood plasma will bond with other reparative factors within the sample to create PRP. The PRP solution is then re-administered into the scalp to stimulate the development of new hair follicles. PRP is one of the most natural solutions to safely and effectively promote healthy hair growth.

What Happens After The Microneedling Treatment?

Following the microneedling procedure, we often take advantage of the opportunity to use various rejuvenating solutions that will directly enter the dermis following creation of the tiny channels in the skin. One of these solutions is PRP or platelet-rich plasma. PRP is derived from the patient by a simple blood draw and spun down to extract the part of the blood containing the growth factors. Following creation of the micro-channels in the skin, these growth factors directly enter the dermis and cause immediate stimulation of the collagen making factory in the skin, ultimately leading to a tighter, more youthful bouncy and glowing skin. Another solution is tranexamic acid, a solution known to very effectively disperse pigmentation in the skin over a series of treatments.
