WHAT IS PRP MICRONEEDLING?

Microneedling with PRP is a powerful technique to rejuvenate skin’s texture and glow,while reducing fine lines and scars. Microneedling, popularized as the ‘vampire facial’is an essential to keeping your skin healthy and youthful.  

ABOUT THE DEVICE:

The microneedling device is built with a wheel of tiny needles at the tip. As the needles penetrate the outer layer of skin, itstimulates growth factors and the growth of collagen, the scaffolding under the skin,which then improves the overall texture, elasticity, and complexion of the skin.

ABOUT PRP:

At Seaside Medical Practice, we utilize PRP (platelet-rich plasma), your own natural plasma, rich in growth factor and stem cells to enrich the deeper layers of skin with fresh collagen and fibroblasts. It’s completely safe, well tolerated and superior to serums which can cause allergic reactions.
