Micro-needling with PRP: Body, Heal Thyself

Facial Procedures New York, NY

Skin rejuvenation with micro-needling and platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) is a relatively new treatment that can produce youthful, glowing results. You may have questions as there are plenty of myths, misconceptions and misleading information about this procedure. To be sure, a facial treatment that uses your blood and tiny needles to produce results can sound rather gruesome; but in reality, it is not as dramatic as you may imagine.

Micro-needling for Healthier-Looking Skin

Below the surface of the skin is the skin matrix, which is a comprised of collagen and elastin. These elements work together to give skin its volume and firmness. As you age, the production of these substances slows. This affects the way your skin looks.

As it loses its fullness, pores begin to look larger, fine lines and wrinkles begin to develop. Think of an old balloon that has leaked air over time and now looks saggy and wrinkly. When you add air to it, the wrinkles smooth out and the balloon looks normal again. In essence, micro-needling works to restore your skin’s natural appearance by stimulating production of collagen and elastin again.

Adding PRP to the Treatment

PRP uses the platelets in your own blood to rejuvenate your skin. Contained in the PRP are healing and growth factors which aid in stimulating the growth of new, healthier skin cells. PRP also helps repair damaged tissue. When added along with micro-needling, the result is skin that looks healthier and fresher than ever.

The way in which the PRP is used in the micro-needling procedure depends on your specific needs. Before treatment, Dr. Khosh or Michele Rivard, P.A.  will consult with you to determine the best approach. In one method, the PRP is injected into the skin during the micro-needling process. The other method is to apply it to the freshly micro-needled skin. Each method has its advantages.

Micro-needling with PRP can make a significant difference in how your skin looks. For fresher, healthier skin with a rejuvenated glow, schedule an appointment with Creative Facial Aesthetics today.

Stephen P.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

Robin M.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

Scott S.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Melodie D.

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
