PRP treatments consistently provide excellent outcomes for our patients!

What is PRP?
PRP helps to stimulate collagen levels and skin growth to help return a youthful volume and glow to the skin.
Our blood is made up of many things, plasma, red cells, white cells, and platelets. Platelets help in the healing process by clotting blood. Platelets are made of proteins which help your injuries heal. PRP is a concentrated serum made up of the plasma and platelets found in your blood.
In order to prepare your PRP for treatment, Dr. Wells will process a sample of your blood through a centrifuge. The blood will be spun for a period of time to separate your platelets from the other compositions. The result is a concentrated formula of growth and healing factors that will significantly improve your skin.
Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling and PRP are often paired together. Together, these treatments allow the maximum benefits to be reaped from PRP serum. Microneedling is a minimally invasive technique used to improve the texture of the skin by reducing pore size, scars, and irregular surfaces.
In a microneedling treatment, a device called a DermaPen uses medical-grade needles to rapidly create micro-channels in the skin. These channels allow for PRP to reach deeply into the dermis layer to effectively treat and improve your skin.
Microneedling is often referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy because it helps to boost collagen levels and help smooth out the skin’s texture. Combined with PRP, this treatment will revitalize your skin and reduce wrinkles, lines, irregular textures, and blemishes.

Consult with Baltimore’s Leading Skin Rejuvenation Expert
In your private meeting with one of our skin experts, you will have the opportunity to discuss your concerns and skin goals. They will examine your skin and determine if a PRP treatment is the perfect solution for you! If PRP will achieve the skin goals you desire, you will walk through the treatment details together and schedule an appointment. Most patients see their best results after about three PRP procedures.

You will need to stop smoking and alter medications for a few weeks before and after treatment to ensure a healthy treatment and outcome. For your best results, follow the instructions provided for you by your skin expert.
In a PRP treatment, you will first receive a blood draw. The sample will be placed in a centrifuge and will be spun softly and then at a harder spin for a total of twenty to thirty minutes. The blood contents will separate and the PRP will be in the lower one-third of the container. The PRP will be removed and combined with plasma.
Dr. Wells recommends administering PRP to the skin following Microneedling to improve the effectiveness of the treatment.
Your face will be cleansed before a topical numbing agent is administered to the treatment areas. At Valley Plastic Surgery and Medi-Spa we use the revolutionary DermaPen to administer impressive results! The DermaPen implements medical-grade needles to reach deep into the skin hygienically and effectively. The needles can be customized to reach a certain depth and will rapidly puncture the skin to create precise channels without strain or tearing. PRP is applied after microneedling. The PRP will either be injected into the dermis with syringe and needle or will be applied topically.
PRP treatment does not require significant downtime and you can return to your regular schedule almost immediately! However, if PRP is combined with microneedling, your skin will be discolored and swollen afterward. The treatment should not hinder your ability to work and you should be able to return to work shortly. Any post-procedure redness will subside within a day, thanks to the healing properties of the PRP.
You will want to avoid direct sunlight, applying makeup, and facial products with active-ingredients for about twenty-four hours after microneedling with PRP, or until the micro-lesions are healed.
Improvements in the quality of your skin may be seen within a few days but your best outcome will be noticed after three treatments. Maintenance appointments will be needed every few months to ensure your skin stays healthy and glowing!
