About Microneedling with PRP
Institute of Plastic Surgery is proud to offer microneedling, a procedure that punctures tiny holes in the skin on your neck, face, or torso to stimulate skin restoration. As an added bonus, your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) may be administered to the same region to further help cells heal and allow the skin to begin growing new cells. Both of these procedures together can reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, scars, spots, large pores, along with other skin issues. The feel of your skin can be significantly enhanced to look smoother and more even in tone without damaging the epidermis. If you'd like to find out more about microneedling with PRP, schedule a private consultation with one of our plastic surgeons at our office in Colorado Springs, CO.
"35 years ago, I had breast implant surgery. Over the course of those years, my breasts had encapsulated causing my breasts to look totally abnormal and very hard to the touch. Fast forward, I needed them removed. Dr Jain was recommended and I couldn't be more pleased. He replaced my implants (both of which had ruptured, but I didn't know it) with the type of implant that much reduces the possibility of encapsulation and no chance of old-school rupture. The results are simply stunning. Soft, normal shaped and just the right size. The surgery was a bit complicated, but Dr. Jain's expertise was key in getting the results I wanted. Dr. Jain is gifted, and very attuned to the needs of the patient. He gave me a realistic description of what to expect and he delivered. His staff is wonderful--very attentive and supportive. Overall, I couldn't be more pleased. Highly recommend."- P.D. / Google / Nov 20, 2018
"Dr. Jain and his staff are very professional as well as friendly and caring. Dr. Jain listens and spends his time with his clients. My surgery for explant and lift went quite well with excellent results. I would highly recommend him for cosmetic and or reconstructive surgery. He is very responsive to questions and calls. I did call him on a Friday evening and he returned my call immediately and saw me after hours in his office. My call turned out to be an easy fix, wait a day and the discomfort will go away, sure enough that is just what happened. Thank you, Dr. Jain."- G.G. / Google / Jun 12, 2020
"Fantastic Experience and Results - Dr. Jain did an awesome job from initial consultation to surgery to follow up. I had saline implants about 14 years ago and one of them ruptured for an unknown reason. I had them replaced with silicone and couldn't be happier with the results. He takes the time to listen and talk with you and really cares about his patients. The whole office staff is wonderful, warm and friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Jain and his practice!"- R. / RealSelf / Jun 03, 2020
"He removed two lesions under my left eye: I Give a 10+ Recommendation for This Wonderful Plastic Surgeon and His Awesome Staff! - I had two lesions under my left eye that were highly concerning to me because of health issues. Because of the proximity to my eye, I was worried about visible permanent scars. I was referred to Dr. Jain by a well-trusted colleague. Dr. Jain was nothing short of amazing and is a genuine professional. He is very kind, understanding, listens carefully and evaluates the issues efficiently and accurately. The removal process was a pain free experience. He expertly removed the lesions in a very short amount of time and made me feel very comfortable during the entire process. He explained exactly what he was going to do and what I could expect. I was so very impressed. 7 days later, the stitches were removed. I was so delighted to see that not only was the healing complete ... I could not see any scars! He is a wonderful plastic surgeon! I am so happy that I decided to choose Dr. Jain and am so delighted with all his staff too. They are all just wonderful. I love them all - and you will too! I highly recommend Dr. Jain and his staff for any of your concerns."- L. / RealSelf / May 29, 2020
"I came in for a consultation with Dr Jain today and he spent nearly an hour with me! No it isnt because im in terrible shape :) It seems to be his approach to skin care and I really appreciate it. He did a full consult to address my long term goals and was clearly very knowledgeable, conservative and professional. On top of that he is incredibly kind and gracious as is him entire staff. I think I have found a partner to work with for years to come!"- M.P. / Yelp / Mar 03, 2020
A great candidate for microneedling with PRP is anyone seeking to change the look or feel of the top layer of their skin. Uneven skin tone, dry skin, rough texture, loose skin, age spots, acne, wrinkles, and scarring are all skin conditions that may benefit from a microneedling with PRP therapy. This treatment may also be used to help fight the effects of sun damage that might have caused your skin to have a rough feel or hyperpigmentation.
Before the microneedling section of your session, a member of our team will take a sample of your blood for your PRP collection. The blood will then be transferred to our laboratory for the separation process during which the platelets, growth factors, and stem cells can be condensed into PRP. For your microneedling therapy, Institute of Plastic Surgery uses state-of-the-art technology to make tiny holes into your skin. The small needles used won't harm your skin, but instead, they will help stimulate the creation of collagen. When the microneedling is complete, the PRP serum will be applied to the epidermis to sink in. Once the PRP is completely absorbed, we'll clear away the serum and cleanse the skin.
What to Expect
After your treatment, you may encounter some normal effects, such as bruising, swelling, and redness. Our team recommends that patients avoid the use of makeup, cleanse with exfoliating face washes, or swim in a swimming pool for approximately three days post-treatment. These activities can expose the treatment area to strong bacteria and chemicals that may cause negative side effects. You should also reduce exposure to the sun or use protective steps when planning to be outdoors. Full results are typically noticed within the first month as the skin works to repair and heal itself.
