Microneedling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy. It is the process of creating microscopic tears in your epidermis (top layer of skin that everyone sees). These “micro” abrasions allow for the skin surface to be sloughed off so that brand new skin layers can begin forming. Microneedling is a very simple, safe, effective, and minimally invasive therapeutic technique.
Platelet Rich Plasma, also known as “PRP,” is a volume of fractionated plasma taken from your own blood. We draw a few tubes of blood, spin it with a centrifuge, and separate the portion which contains concentrated platelets. These are then injected into your diseased joints to promote tissue repair and accelerated healing.
