Facial Rejuvenation with Micro-Needling & PRP Reviewed by Dr Barry Lycka & Dr James Marotta

Latest techniques & results from micro-needling with PRP are discussed by experts in facial rejuvenation.


Edmonton, AB -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/10/2015 -- Micro-needling is a cosmetic procedure that has been around for several years where a device with super fine needles is used to create very, very fine channels into the skin in a process that has been described as being akin to aerating a lawn! This process stimulates collagen and results in much improved skin structure, tone and texture. PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma has also been around for several years in use in various medical specialties where a patient's own blood is processed to extract the platelets with their associated growth factors, and then they are re-injected back into the patient in the relevant area being treated. PRP is also now being used with great results for facial rejuvenation.

Both procedures are ones whose time has come and their use in combination with each other is particularly exciting for cosmetic dermatologists and their patients. These are the subjects under discussion on this week's (09Nov15) episode of Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today on webtalkradio.net, when repeat guest, board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr James Marotta from Smithtown, Long Island, NY talks with show host, Edmonton cosmetic dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka.

In this in-depth interview, Dr Lycka & Dr Marotta begin with a discussion about the development of micro-needling and their experience with it. They explain how it is used in cosmetic procedures and what the experience is like from a patient's perspective. Moving on to Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) – they describe what it is and how it is used, and how the science behind it has developed. Both doctors highlight the many ways it benefits the skin, its well-being and healing ability and share the typical results patients can achieve from combining micro-needling with PRP.
