MORE YOUTHFUL LOOKING SKIN, LESS FINE LINES & WRINKLES, LESS SCARRING FROM ACNE & OTHER LESIONS?
Microneedling is the use of a tool that has many tiny needles which creates micro punctures or “channels” in the skin to promote a controlled injury that would promote the production of collagen to rejuvenate skin.
Dr. Funk will either use hyaluronic acid (HA) or a combination of HA and PRP to apply during the microneedling process so that the HA or PRP could snuggle in the “channels” and promote a speedy healing process.
The PRP contains growth factors and cytokines that will stimulate more collagen & elastin in the face & skin.
With microneedling there is no down time but patients may have pink, flaky skin for 24-72 hours.
PRP Facials: Dr. Funk will draw several vials of blood & concentrate the platelets. During the microneedling procedure, Dr. Funk will apply the PRP topically, in addition to Hyaluronic Acid.
PRP Facelift: Dr. Funk will initially inject PRP into areas that need rejuvenation. Afterwards, she will microneedle the face & also apply PRP topically.
Typical treatment plan is a series of 3 PRP sessions total, i.e. 1 treatment every 4 weeks. Patients with severe acne scarring may need more treatments.
Dr. Funk provides PRP hair restoration procedures for both men & women with hair loss.
The goal is to induce collagen production by injecting PRP into areas of the scalp with hair loss.
Microneedling is performed on the scalp after pin-point PRP injections are done to promote even more rejuvenation of the scalp. Long-term goal is to promote circulation and new blood vessel growth in & around the hair follicles so the hair can grow long & strong.
It is advised that patients do a complete hair treatment series of at least 3 hair restoration sessions — i.e. 1 treatment every 4 weeks.
Hair takes long to grow so results will be most obvious 6 months + after completing the series of treatments.
