Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Dr. Berg now offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) at her dermatology practice in Wilmington, Delaware. PRP is plasma taken from the patient’s blood that contains a high concentration of platelets. The plasma contains growth factors which can help rejuvenate skin. In conjunction with microneedling, a treatment that uses tiny needles to create small punctures in the top layer of the skin, PRP helps tighten the skin and speed up the healing process after treatment. Microneedling with PRP has become popular among influencers and celebrities and has commonly been referred to as the “vampire facial.”

What does Microneedling with PRP treat?
Microneedling with PRP treats the following conditions:
  • Pigmentation marks
  • Facial pores
  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Hair loss and androgenic alopecia

What can I expect during treatment?
Twenty to thirty minutes prior to treatment, Dr. Berg will apply a topic anesthetic in order to provide maximum comfort during the treatment. Dr. Berg will then begin the process by applying the microneedling pen against the skin and moving it across the treatments area in a continuous gliding motion. After each pass, a thin layer of PRP is applied to help tighten the skin and promote the healing process.

When will I see results?
After treatments, results can be seen in the following weeks. Because PRP is used for promoting healing and growth, results are seen gradually rather than immediately.
