Melissa Dean, MD of Dean Wellness Institute is pleased to offer microneedling with PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma). This natural procedure is used to treat and improve dermatological conditions such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and improve overall texture.

The procedure includes the use of a microneedling tool to prick the skin, making tiny holes in the skin’s surface. PRP is applied to encourage collagen production and cell reproduction.

“The number of treatments that a person receives varies, for example, larger scars or stretchmarks may take longer to respond to treatment,” says Dr. Dean. Patients can expect it to take a few weeks to see results since it takes time for the body to produce collagen. Improvements in the skin will continue in the weeks following treatments and those with acne scars may notice a gradual improvement in the skin in less than nine months.

This “lunch time facial” requires minimal down time, with many returning to work the same day. “This is an effective, non-surgical option for those wanting a more natural approach to skin rejuvenation,” says Dr. Dean.
