PRP & Micro-Needling Treatments
What is Micro-Needling and why does it work for Anti-Aging?
At New Youth Medical Spa we use innovative methods to turn back the clock of time and offer treatments that are non-surgical, yet aggressive enough to help restore the aging skin. When aging occurs, the skin begins to lose volume, the pores increase in size and often hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines and even old acne scars are also an issue. Micro-Needling Pens are really multiple microneedles, that create thousands of microscopic channels (holes) through the skin. The body quickly rushes to repair these infinitely small holes– this causes an increase in the production of collagen and elastin. The treatment also improves blood flow to the area– and in the process restores our skin to a youthful appearance. The skin plumps, pore size is reduced and often acne scars are minimized. So what does Platelet-Rich Plasma have to do with it? Let us explain!
The Magic of Platelet Rich Plasma
In simple terms, our blood contains platelet-rich plasma that is a yellow substance and is the “Healing Agent” within our body. PRP contains 8 identifiable Growth Factors that are responsible for repairing and regenerating tissue when wounds of any kind are created.
Platelet-Rich Plasma has been used in orthopedics and the dental industry for many years, and famous athletes, such as Colby Bryant have been known to get PRP injections to speed up joint and ligament healing. Within the last two decades, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy has gained popularity for the use in Anti-Aging, Skin Rejuvenation, and Hair Restoration.

How do you get the PRP from the Patient’s own Blood?
Dr. Finger or one of his registered Nurses draws blood from the patient and use a centrifuge to separate the Platelet Rich Plasma from the rest of the blood. The process of spinning the blood takes about 30-45 minutes. We then re-infuse the PRP into the micro-holes created with the Micro-Pen. PRP can also be injected into the scalp to stimulate hair follicles and can aid in hair regrowth by causing weak hair follicles to go into an active growth cycle. Of course only certain types of hair loss respond to PRP Therapy. Book your appointment with Dr. Finger if you are concerned about hair loss and to find out if you are the right candidate for PRP therapy.
The beauty of the PRP treatment is that it doesn’t break down the outer layer of the skin, so there is no scarring and no down time. The body’s immune system simply goes to work repairing the perceived damage. All you see is fresher, younger, and healthier skin. Often the patients experience redness and mild irritation for a few days, and for 12 hours after the treatment, no skin-care or even washing the face is recommended. The PRP is applied on the face during the procedure and after the procedure and creates a light coat of protection as well as starts the healing process.

Who can benefit the most when it comes to Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy & Micro-Needling?
The answer to that question depends on you. Most of us are concerned with aging in the face, neck and chest area, PRP for “Anti-Aging Purpose” is not limited to those areas, but most easily addressed. Other areas of concern such as hair loss or chronic joint pain might require injections with PRP. Platelet Rich Plasma can also be injected under the eyes to minimize fine lines, dark circles and to plump the skin in that area. Because PRP comes from the patient’s own body allergic reactions have not been noted. The treatment without PRP can also be effective, particularly in younger patients seeking skin improvement and preventative care. Acne scar reduction is another reason to seek this treatment. At New Youth Medical Spa our “Skin Expert” Dr. E. Ronald Finger, as well as our experienced aesthetician Anna Van Winkle, can help answer questions and make appropriate recommendations for Skin Rejuvenation and Anti-Aging.
