Microneedling in Dallas, TX | Dr. John Burns
Microneedling with PRP
This exciting new technology has rapidly evolved over the past several years to become the preferred method of face and skin rejuvenation for the face and body. Platelet rich plasma has a long history in surgery as it has been used to heal the body after surgery. Platelets are the component of blood involved in wound healing and collagen regeneration.
PRP therapy is a simple office procedure with minimal downtime. Dr. Burns uses the Eclipse PRP system which has been proven to deliver the most pure and highest concentration PRP for superior clinical results. PRP is usually done in conjunction with microneedling which places extremely small holes in the skin where the PRP can penetrate. PPR can also be placed using a microcannula to limit pain, bruising and swelling. The combination of microneedling with PRP provides a double stimulus for collagen regeneration: both from the microneedling collagen induction process and from the PRP growth factors. In places where microneedling will not deliver the PRP; microcannula injection can place the PRP without bruising. Common areas for microcannula technique are lower eyelids, neck, chest and hands.
