PRP and Microneedling

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma is a tool more and more medical experts are using to kickstart the body’s natural healing and regeneration processes. For years, pro athletes like Tiger Woods and celebrities like Kim Kardashian have used PRP to minimize joint pain, rejuvenate skin, and help themselves look and feel their best. 

Now, this groundbreaking treatment is available to you. What’s more, it’s completely natural. 

Dr. Chirino derives the PRP for your treatment from a small sample of your own blood. Using a centrifuge, he separates out the platelets, which are tiny blood cells your body sends to any injury sites to stimulate your body’s healing processes. By separating these platelets into a plasma, Dr. Chirino essentially derives an extremely effective signal he can send your body to start rejuvenation in a targeted area. 

When applied to your skin, PRP treatments stimulate the production of new, healthy skin or hair cells which can:

  • Smooth fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduce unwanted pigmentation, like age spots and hyperpigmentation
  • Support the growth of new, healthy hair
  • Reduce acne, surgical, and injury scars

In addition to PRP, Dr. Chirino also offers regenerative medicine using stem cell therapy. Injecting this stem cell therapy into joints alleviates joint pain, while introducing it alongside skin rejuvenating treatments delivers better, longer-lasting results.  

How do PRP treatments work?

There are a couple of different ways that Dr. Chirino can deliver the PRP to your skin. 

Microneedling

On its own, microneedling is an effective way to transform your skin. By creating harmless micro-injuries with a series of very tiny needles, this treatment kickstarts your body’s natural healing processes, resulting in refreshed and rejuvenated skin. 

Dr. Chirino can make microneedling even more effective by using the tiny channels the treatment creates in your skin to deliver PRP. As the plasma saturates into those channels, it reaches the deeper layers of your skin for even greater transformation. 

PRP fillers

Microneedling is effective if you have large areas of your skin that you want to transform. But what if your issue is a specific problem area? In these cases, targeted injections with PRP fillers can stimulate your skin to eliminate specific wrinkles like frown lines, crow’s feet, and marionette lines. 

What should I expect after a PRP treatment?

Because this treatment is derived from your own body, the risks of side effects are minimal. Your skin may appear red after your appointment, but you’ll be able to drive immediately after and continue on with your usual daily activities.
