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.
The goal is to induce collagen production by injecting PRP into areas of the scalp with hair loss.
Dr. Funk provides PRP hair restoration procedures for both men & women 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.
