About Microneedling with PRP
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Timothy Katzen offers microneedling, a treatment that safely creates micro-injuries on the skin, to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. As an additional benefit, your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be applied to the same area to help tissue heal and permit the skin to grow new cells. When paired together, these two treatments can decrease the appearance of wrinkles, scars, spots, and other skin conditions. With this treatment, the texture of your skin can improve greatly even appearing smoother and softer without makeup. If you would like to learn more about the microneedling with PRP treatment, schedule a one-on-one consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Katzen at his office in Beverly Hills, CA.

"I had arms that flapped after I lost a significant amount of weight. I went to Dr. Katzen for an arm lift and you would never be able to tell I had anything done. Dr. Katzen placed the incisions carefully where you wouldn't see them unless I raised my arms. My scars are healing very well. I can't wait for my incisions to fade like many of his post ops that I met."- H.C. / Google / Oct 18, 2019

The perfect candidate for microneedling with PRP would be any woman or man looking to alter the appearance or texture of the surface of their skin. Dry skin, uneven tone, rough texture, age spots, loose skin, wrinkles, acne, and scarring are skin conditions that could benefit from a microneedling with PRP treatment. This procedure can also be utilized to combat the effects of sun damage. Please inform Dr. Katzen or a member of his team if you suffer from any skin conditions, anemia, or blood disorders so we can determine if this combined treatment is a safe option for you.
Prior to the microneedling portion of your treatment, a member of our team will draw some of your blood for the PRP collection. This blood will then be taken to our lab for the separation process, wherein your stem cells, platelets, and growth factors will be turned into PRP. For the microneedling treatment, our Beverly Hills, CA office uses the innovative Eclipse MicroPen to create micro-sized injuries on your skin. The tiny needles used will not damage your skin, rather, they will help stimulate your body's production of collagen. Once your microneedling treatment is done, the PRP serum will be placed on the skin and given time to be absorbed. After the PRP is fully received, we will remove the leftover serum and cleanse your skin.
What to Expect
Following your microneedling with PRP procedure, you could experience some normal side effects, such as swelling, bruising, and redness. We recommend that you do not wear makeup, use abrasive skin cleansers, or submerge in pools for around 72 hours following the session. Activities like this could expose your skin to harsh chemicals and bacteria, which could lead to adverse reactions. You also need to intentionally avoid sun exposure and use protective measures when going outside. Your final results will be seen within several weeks as the skin works to repair and heal itself.
Restore and Revitalize
Combining microneedling with a naturally derived PRP treatment can be very effective for men and women looking to restore a youthful look and feel to their skin. It can help your complexion appear younger, smoother, firmer, and luminous all at once. Our skilled team of medical professionals invites you to learn more about this personalized service by arranging a consultation at our Beverly Hills, CA facility.
