Aging is inevitable, but looking old doesn’t have to be. As far as facial aesthetics and youthfulness, the common signs of aging appear here so early on because we quite literally face the world, the sun, and environmental pollutants day in and day out with this most prominent part of our body. And we often do so without protection or covering our face and head. In addition to the elements, gravity is constantly at work in pulling our facial skin downward.
What is Microneedling with PRP?
Microneedling with PRP is a rejuvenating cosmetic procedure designed to enhance your face's youthful and healthy appearance. This non-surgical treatment involves using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from your body to stimulate natural collagen production and tissue regeneration. The PRP is carefully applied to the skin through microneedling, creating micro-injuries that trigger the body's natural healing processes. This results in improved skin texture, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, and a rejuvenated complexion. Using PRP in conjunction with microneedling amplifies the effectiveness and longevity of the treatment, allowing for enhanced skin rejuvenation and a more youthful, radiant appearance.

What does Microneedling with PRP Treat?
Our Bay Area microneedling with PRP treatment offers a solution to address natural facial volume loss over time. As we naturally lose healthy fat from our mid and lower face, the result can lead to an aged, tired, or displeased appearance, which may not reflect how we truly feel. Dr. Sheena Kong's expertise in microneedling with PRP aims to address and correct these concerns effectively, helping to restore a more youthful and rejuvenated facial appearance.
Why Does my Face Look Aged, Hollow, or Gaunt?
This occurs due to a loss of collagen and a weakening of the underlying connective tissues of the face. Collagen is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that gives it structure, firmness, and form. As we age, the amount of collagen in our skin decreases yearly, and our body’s ability to produce it tapers off, causing the skin to sag, droop, and lose form. Gravity also contributes heavily to the aged look of the face.
Microneedling with PRP Vs. Facial Fillers
Numerous dermal fillers are available for injection into the skin of the face to enhance volume and achieve a more youthful, smoother appearance. While many of these fillers are designed to appear and feel as natural as possible, Microneedling with PRP represents an even more natural option. It promotes vascularity and collagen synthesis within the skin, providing regenerative benefits essential for long-term volume restoration and a youthful appearance.
Your Most Natural Option for Facial Enhancement
Additionally, dermal fillers are not permanent and are gradually reabsorbed by the body after injection. Moreover, the initial cost and ongoing maintenance treatments can be expensive for patients requiring a significant volume of filler. Given all of this, it’s clear that Dr. Kong's microneedling with PRP procedure offers an excellent option for patients seeking a long-term solution to restore their youthful appearance.
