At Bellava Westchester Plastic Surgery Center, we offer the latest state-of-the-art solutions for both gorgeous, glowing skin and wrinkle reduction: microneedling and PRP.

Microneedling and PRP for Gorgeous Skin

This amazing treatment, once known as “Collagen Induction Therapy,” can help address issues such as enlarged pores, redness, sun damage, hyperpigmentation and surface scarring. Micro needling refers to using tiny needles that work to stimulate your skin to produce collagen and elastin, the proteins that give skin its youthful vitality—keeping it smooth and firm. This basic microneedling procedure is to improve the skin is carried out by one of our highly trained aestheticians under the supervision of our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. C.S. Kim. For best results, MicroPen microneedling is usually combined with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), or Synthetic Growth Factor, known as the Vampire Facelift.

The number of microneedling sessions needed depends on your specific skin condition. Typically, we recommend 3-5 treatments in 4-6 week intervals with maintenance treatments every 6-9 months.
