PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, contains growth factors and stem cells that are essential to the natural healing process and tissue regeneration. Microneedling with PRP is an advanced skin rejuvenation treatment that is recommended for men and women in Chattanooga and surrounding areas in Tennessee, including the community of Cleveland.
For more than two decades, PRP has been used in a variety of medical treatments around the world. Because of the unique properties of PRP, the power of the growth factors and stem cells are being harnessed for uses in aesthetic treatments and plastic surgery as well as sports medicine, oral health, orthopedics and many other fields of medicine.
Natural Injections for a Natural Look
Microneedling with PRP is especially beneficial for patients with wrinkles around the mouth, dark under-eye circles, thin skin, and other age-related skin problems. The procedure stimulates the natural healing process to give you smoother, younger skin.
How Do We Stimulate Natural Skin Rejuvenation and Regeneration
Microneedling is a medical treatment that uses the body’s natural healing process to rejuvenate the skin. When combined with PRP, the treatment gives men and women incredible results. Microneedling introduces very small micro-injuries into the skin. PRP is then applied to the surface of the skin or directly into the micro-injuries. The micro-injuries trigger the body’s natural immune and healing response, and PRP gives your skin the essential elements it needs to develop healthier, natural skin.
What Is Microneedling And How Is It Performed?
The microneedling device is designed with very tiny needles that create minute channel-like injuries to the skin. Once the micro-injuries are created, the skin responds by producing elastin and collagen, two substances that are essential to skin health. Dr. Jack Rowland applies a topical anesthesia to numb the skin. The microneedling device is then used to puncture the skin, and a serum that contains PRP is injected into the area. The micro-injuries are created in the upper-most layer of skin, and the depth is 2mm or less. Most patients remain quite comfortable during the treatment. The combination of micro-injuries and PRP accelerates and enhances healing.
How Is The Serum Obtained And Processed?
The PRP serum for microneedling is obtained from your own blood, so you can feel confident about the safety of the procedure. A small blood sample is drawn just before the microneedling procedure. A specialized machine is used to separate the platelets from the red blood cells, and a secondary process concentrates the platelet volume in the serum. The end result is a serum that is high in stem cells and growth factors that enhance skin rejuvenation.

Can The Procedure Be Repeated For A Better Result?
The initial treatment plan for microneedling with PRP typically involves three treatments that are performed at one-month intervals. You see exceptional results when the treatments are combined with our recommended at-home skin care regimen. After the initial treatment, we recommend periodic maintenance treatments to address aging at the earliest stages.
How Much Time Does The Procedure Take?
For most patients, microneedling with PRP takes approximately 60 minutes. Your treatment may take more or less time depending on the extent of microneedling that is required. Recovery generally lasts three to four days. Your skin may appear slightly swollen and red. Some patients equate the experience as being similar to a mild sunburn. Symptoms should last only one or two days. You may also notice minimal bleeding from the micro-injuries as well as bruising and tenderness.
