PRP Therapy and Microneedling for Scar Reduction in Chicago

If you are a Chicago-area resident who is looking for scar reduction treatment options, you should consider procedures that work with your body to safely and effectively reduce scars caused by acne, surgery, or injury. Non-surgical treatments such as PRP therapy offer the advantage of significant scar reduction, low risk of complications, and no need for downtime in most cases.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

PRP therapy involves the creation of a blood product developed from the patient’s own blood. We extract a certain amount of blood from you and spin it in a centrifuge, which concentrates and separates platelets from your blood. This platelet-rich liquid is used to make a serum. Your blood platelets contain various growth factors that can tremendously speed up the healing process and make other types of treatments more effective.

Microneedling

A form of non-surgical skin rejuvenation called microneedling involves the use of a hand-held device that we pass over your skin repeatedly. This device creates micro-channels in specific areas to trigger a healing response. While these microscopic punctures are a very light form of skin damage, they are enough to trigger a self-repair process that results in the formation of new collagen and fresh skin tissue to help reduce the appearance of scars.

PRP Therapy and Microneedling

PRP therapy and microneedling work together to synergistically treat scars caused by acne or other factors. The growth factors contained in the PRP blood product enhance the skin healing effects of microneedling. In turn, the microscopic punctures created by the microneedling process act as tiny channels, allowing PRP to flow easily under your skin and reach greater depths to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment.

Preparing for Your Treatment

To obtain the best results from your PRP and microneedling treatment, you will need to make certain preparations and follow our instructions carefully. We may instruct you to refrain from prolonged sun exposure before your treatment. You may also be asked to drink plenty of fluids and abstain from certain blood-thinning medications. Avoid wearing makeup or plying moisturizer prior to your PRP and microneedling treatment. After your treatment, we may apply a balm or serum to help soothe any irritation or temporary redness.

Maureen is exceptional at what she does. When I first started lazer, she relaxed me and described the process. Each time I come, she makes me feel at ease and carries on conversation during the process so it is not as painful. I would love to continue seeing her for other services.
