About Microneedling with PRP
Plastic surgeons Drs. Francisco Canales and Heather Furnas are proud to offer microneedling, a process that punctures little holes in the skin on your neck, face, or torso to stimulate skin restoration. As an extra bonus, your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) may be administered to the same region to help cells heal and enable the skin to begin growing new cells. Both of these procedures together are usually known as the vampire facial and can lessen the appearance of lines, wrinkles, scars, spots, large pores, along with other skin problems. The feel of your skin could be significantly enhanced to look smoother and more even in tone without damaging the epidermis. If you'd like to find out more on microneedling with PRP, schedule a private consult with Allegro MedSpa of Novato in Novato, CA.
"I get the Signature Peel with aesthetician Ashley and could not recommend her more highly. LOVE HER. She is so knowledgeable, sweet and calming...even though I’m getting a chemical peel she has me feel so relaxed like I’m getting a full massage. I’ve had peels at other high-end medspas but have never received better results than with Ashley. Based on her knowledge, skill and beautiful energy, I wholeheartedly give Ashley 5+ stars. She’s the best."- N.B. / Google / Jun 21, 2019

"Breast Augmentation - Outstanding results! I still look in the mirror and say, “wow, these are my breasts!” Dr. Furnas made me feel safe and answered all my questions!

A great candidate for microneedling with PRP is anybody seeking to modify the look or feel of the top layer of their skin. Uneven skin tone, dry skin, harsh texture, loose skin, age spots, acne, wrinkles, and scarring are dermal conditions which may benefit from a microneedling with PRP therapy. This therapy may also be employed to fight the effects of sun damage that might have caused your complexion to have a rough feel or hyperpigmentation.
Before the microneedling part of your session, a member of our team will take a sample of your blood for your PRP collection. The blood will then be transferred to our laboratory for the separation process during which the platelets, growth factors, and stem cells can be made into PRP. For your microneedling therapy, Allegro MedSpa of Novato utilizes modern technology to create micro-injuries on the surface of your skin. The tiny needles used won't harm your skin but instead, will help stimulate the creation of collagen. When the microneedling is finished, the PRP serum will be put on the epidermis to sink in. Once the PRP is completely absorbed, we'll clear away the serum and cleanse the skin.
What to Expect
After your therapy, you might encounter some ordinary effects, such as swelling, redness, and bruising. We recommend that patients avoid the use of makeup, exfoliating face washes, or swimming in chlorinated pools for about three days after treatment. Activities, such as these, may expose the treatment area to strong bacteria and chemicals, which may cause negative side effects. You also should reduce exposure to the sun or use protective steps when planning to be outdoors. Full results are generally noticed within the first month as the skin works to fix and heal itself.
Restore and Revitalize
This innovative procedure can be quite helpful for people seeking to get back the original appearance and texture of the skin. Microneedling can help make skin appear smoother, younger, more luminous, and firmer. We urge patients to find out more about this therapy by speaking to a member of our skilled team or by setting up an appointment at our Novato, CA practice today.
