PRP and Microneedling

Boronia Medical Centre offers PRP and microneedling, both of which can improve a multitude of skin issues and help achieve more youthful looking skin.

What is PRP

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment is used for both cosmetic and medical reasons.

Your blood is collected on the day, spun at high speed in a centrifuge, then the platelet rich plasma (which is loaded with a much higher concentration of growth factors than your normal blood) is reinjected into the area of concern. Dr Katey uses a topical compounded anaesthetic cream to make this more comfortable.

The growth factors aid in tissue repair and rejuvenation.

PRP can be used to treat a number of issues including: 

-Osteoarthritis of the knee (evidence to support this), muscle, ligament and tendon injuries - including golfers and tennis elbow and Achilles tendonitis (not greatly supported by the evidence but works well for some people)
-Skin rejuvenation


It is recommended to have at least 3 treatments to get the maximal effect.

For skin rejuvenation we recommended to combine this with microneedling for the best results. One of the best non-surgical treatments for loose sagging skin under the chin and on the neck.

What is Microneedling

The Dermapen 4 is an award winning, revolutionary digitalised microneedling device. It is the world’s only microneedling system designed to treat all skin types and conditions using a range of dermaceuticals and meso-glide serums that deliver bio-compatible actives via a target delivery vehicle for amazing skin results. It can tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin and can be used for a number of skin conditions, including:

Sun damaged and ageing skin

Fine lines and wrinkles

Acne

Acne scarring

Pigmentation

Melasma

Stretch marks

Rosacea

Scarring – post surgical

Enlarged pores/ Sebaceous hyperplasia

Skin sagging – (combine with PRP for best results)

A dermapen treatment, targeting your area of concern will be performed. The device delivers multiple tiny punctures to the surface of the skin, both oxygenating and producing an immune response and formation of new collagen. The punctures produced during treatment act as channels to deliver nourishing active ingredients deep within your skin to correct you concerns. This leaves tighter and firmer skin and will visibly reduce the appearance of scarring and pigmentation. This treatment can be performed safely on nearly every part of the body and can be performed on all skin types and tones, without the risk of side effects associated with fractional laser or heat inducing treatments.

A cooling mask infused with super hydrating ingredients is placed over the skin post needling then finishing off with a tinted cover recover means skin is glowing with minimal downtime.
