About PRP Skin/Facial Rejuvination using SkinPen Precision and microneedling
Dr Danielle Waxman will collect a small sample of your blood (which contains over 300 active growth factors) in a special collection tube which is then spun down using a centrifuge to separate the Platelet Rich Plasma(PRP) (also known as “liquid gold” )from the rest of your blood.
This PRP which contains 10 times the concentration of platelets than of normal blood is then microneedled into your skin using the latest SkinPen microneedling device. Targeted treatments may also be performed to certain areas of particular concern by direct injection of the PRP using either a needle or a cannula.
This procedure takes approximately an hour and any discomfort is minimized with the application of a Medical grade topical anesthetic .
A course of 3 to 6 treatments is recommended with additional maintenance treatments every 6 to 12 months.
PRP Rejuvenation treatment is suitable for:
- dark under-eye circles
- tired and dry skin, uneven pigmentation
- fine lines and wrinkles
- treatment of scars
- sun damage
- creepy looking skin in neck, chest and eye areas as well as the back of hands
- overall texture and tone improvement, reducing the appearance of enlarged pores and redness.
- people who may experience risk of allergic reactions from other treatments
- people looking for a natural treatment using the body’s own natural healing process.
Down-time is minimal, the initial redness produced, similar to mild sunburn disappears on the day after treatment, but some patients experience slight swelling and dryness of the skin which usually settles over the next few days.
Make up can be worn the day after treatment if desired and use of a sunblock factor 30+ is essential along with a quality moisturizer.
When PRP is coupled with microneedling, the PRP Therapy is boosted to even higher levels.
Firstly, the PRP treatment releases growth factors into the skin in order to expedite the body’s own repair process.
Secondly, the PRP treatment stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin.
Finally, PRP paired with microneedling reduces inflammation, and redness – as well as scars, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, minimizes pores, and evens complexion leaving you looking radiant. This procedure has minimal down time and aftercare skincare is recommended.
You should start to see results within a week of your treatment which then further increase over time due to new collagen production in the areas treated.
Usually it is recommended that the first 3 treatments be done 4 weeks apart and then once or twice yearly thereafter to help maintain the results .

-Cellular Matrix-Hyaluronic Acid + Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Rejuvenation Therapy.
This is another treatment option available whereby a combination of your own PRP and Hyaluronic acid is Microneedled into the skin using the SkinPen microneedling device , providing your skin with immediate hydration from the Hyaluronic Acid added. In the months following your treatment, growth factors which are released from your platelets will then stimulate new collagen and elastin to help improve tone ,texture ,elasticity ,thickness and overall appearance.
– Microneedling with Hyaluronic Acid Skin Rejuvenation Therapy.
With this treatment ,Dr Danielle Waxman will microneedle the skin without PRP but with Hyaluronic Acid alone using the latest SkinPen microneedling device.
This is another method available which stimulates your own collagen induction by the creation of tiny holes in the skin which then encourages the body’s own production of new collagen. This process kick-starts the body’s natural wound healing response underneath the skin and helps to make wrinkles, scars or stretch marks less noticeable. The addition of Hyaluronic Acid which is a natural substance in our bodies which gradually depletes as we age , gives more immediate hydrated results.
A course of 3 to 6 treatments is usually recommended with a maintenance treatment every 6 to 12 months to achieve the best results .
