DALLAS, Dec. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dallas plastic surgeon, Dr. Rod
Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is an elective cosmetic procedure that allows for controlled stimulation of the skin's natural healing and repair mechanism, which in turn, triggers new collagen production.
The key that makes microneedling especially effective in the newly offered treatment is the combined use of platelet rich plasma (PRP), which has been in use for over 20 years for its wound healing properties. Platelet rich plasma is collected from your own blood and is able to further stimulate collagen production.
The process results in smoother, firmer, and brighter skin. The treatment typically takes place in sessions of 60 to 90 minutes, although multiple sessions may be required, depending on the treatment area and exact application.
"I've followed the development of this microneedling for years, and with the release of the FDA approved SkinPen device, I am thrilled to finally make these treatments available to my patients," says Dr. Rohrich. "I've been very impressed by the results of this procedure and its wide range of applications."
Microneedling treats various skin conditions by improving the overall skin tone and texture. Applications include the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, the reduction of pore size, improvement in the appearance of scars and stretch marks, and reduction in hyperpigmentation. As it uses your own cells, microneedling with PRP can treat all skin types.
"The greatest advantage of microneedling's is that it can be used on all skin types for improved pigmentation and texture," says Dr. Rohrich.
