Micro-Needling & Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

Contact Kami Parsa, M.D. today to schedule a consultation about this medical spa treatment.

What is Micro-Needling Therapy?

Micro-Needling is a collagen induction therapy that involves puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles in effort to boost the skin’s natural elastin and collagen production. Ideal candidates for this type of therapy include those looking to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, heal acne scars, address stretch marks, and more. Micro-Needling is a popular choice among patients looking to rejuvenate their appearance.

What does it feel like? Is it painful?

At first thought, Micro-Needling may sound like a painful experience. However, the tiny needles used in this type of therapy are only inserted skin-deep. The pain, if any, is very minimal and has been compared to the feeling of light sandpaper. A topical numbing agent may be applied prior to the procedure but is often not necessary.

What expectations should I have after a Micro-Needling procedure?

Immediately following the procedure, skin may appear pink and flushed similar to mild sunburn. There may be some tightness or swelling that gives the skin a more radiant appearance, but all side effects tend to resolve themselves anywhere from 12 hours to 3 days depending upon the specific treatment received, skin type, and skin condition.

When will I see the results?

It’s very common to see results immediately following the initial procedure. Results continue to improve over the course of 6 months with a significant increase in collagen and elastin production.

How many treatments are necessary?

Most patients achieve desired results within a series of 3-6 treatments spaced throughout 4-6 weeks. If Micro-Needling treatments are being used to treat more severe conditions such as deep wrinkles, acne scars, or stretch marks, 6-8 treatments may be necessary.

What is PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy?

Platelet Rich Plasma is a concentration of platelets in the blood containing protein that expedites healing. When used in conjunction with rejuvenation therapies, PRP enhances the natural healing process of the body helping results appear quicker while boosting the production of collagen and elastin.

What does the procedure entail?

From a patient’s blood sample, the PRP is separated from the blood and used immediately following the Micro-Needling procedure. After a Micro-Needling treatment, the PRP is applied to the skin topically where the newly created channels accept the protein and kick-start the natural healing process. Together, both therapies enhance the overall appearance of the skin leaving patients looking younger and brighter than before.

Words cannot express how thankful and appreciative I am to have found you. I am deeply grateful for you, for your generosity and caring nature as pertaining to my medical condition. As you know, I was apprehensive about having further surgery, but you are and have been reassuring and confident in the type of procedure you would perform in order to fix my eyelid from the beginning. The fact that you are not pushy and gave me the time and space to make the decision on my own allowed me to prepare myself mentally and emotionally, that really made a difference. Besides from that, your continuous generosity made me confident that you were the right doctor for the task at hand. You will never know how appreciative I am of that. I would also like to let you know how pleased I am with the results of the surgery. I have not felt this comfortable in years. My parents are also very grateful since this was my 14th surgery. You have a true gift. Thank you again for your patience, time, concern, and overall care. I pray that God continues to give you strength to help people who truly need life-changing medical procedures.

Dr. Parsa is an amazing doctor. Warm and very caring. I had my eyes done a couple years ago and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Parsa likes to take the conservative approach which I greatly appreciate in a doctor when it comes to cosmetic surgery. I also go to Dr. Parsa for Botox and he always knows just the right amount. The staff in Dr. Parsa's office are all terrific!

I found Dr. Kami Parsa on RealSelf a couple of years ago. He was one of the top doctors I found. I read many of the reviews patients left and they were all great. So, I decided to go ahead and set up a consultation with Dr. Parsa. He is very smart and truly knows what he is talking about. After consulting with a couple of other doctors, I knew Dr. Parsa was the one. I chose Dr. Parsa to perform the surgery. I had a great expericence with the surgery it's self, everything went very well. I am so happy with the final results. I would 100% recommend Dr. Parsa to anyone who is looking for a upper/ lower Blepharoplasty doctor. Dr. Parsa really knows what he is doing.

I have been bothered for years by my left eye feeling "tired", manifesting in a a "droop". My ophthalmologist diagnosed it as "ptosis" (drooping eyelid), and referred me to Dr Parsa for a consult. From the beginning, my experience has been exemplary. First, his assistant, Marie, is amazing-warm, compassionate, knowledgeable. After a comprehensive examination and paying close attention to my explanation of what I have been experiencing, Dr Parsa concluded I am NOT a candidate for the ptosis surgery. Rather, a corrective procedure is actually an eyebrow lift-much simpler, less invasive, far less costly. What a breath of fresh air to find a doctor who is is patient- centered and willing to not "sell" a more expensive job. His professionalism and apparent expertise were evident throughout. This is what healthcare in America should be all about.

Dr. Parsa just has that something extra. That something extra I believe, is that rare combination of skill and artistry. He possesses both in great measure. I had Botox and filler and I am very satisfied with a most natural appearance. He was confident and did not let me experience any pain while he was working. He knows exactly what is needed. His prices are competitive, the office is gorgeous and his staff are accommodating. I simply relax in Dr. Parsa's capable hands. You are getting top notch with Dr. Parsa!
