Free People’s blog, BLDG 25, is the latest in string of news to praise Dr. Devgan’s techniques in plastic surgery. Brigette Muller, a freelance Free People Contributor, came to the office for a micro-needling with platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) treatment (see the video directly below or our full blog post at http://laradevganmd.com/blog/2017/9/20/crafting-clear-complexion-dr-devgan-performs-microneedlingprpv) and a one-on-one interview with Dr. Devgan to answer more in-depth questions regarding micro-needling.
Muller’s experience was documented in her new Free People blog (link to blog) and on her Youtube channel (watch below).
We are thrilled that Muller had an enjoyable experience and cannot wait to see her full results!
There a few things to remember when considering collagen induction therapy (aka micro-needling). Micro-needling can be done with or without platelet rich plasma (PRP). Micro-needling alone has been known to develop collagen and elastin successfully, which in turn allows for damage to skin, such as acne scarring, wrinkles, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation, to be corrected over time. Micro-needling treatments are typically needed more than once as each individual patient has a different skin type along with differences in their desired results.
The next, logical question for most patients is usually, “What is the purpose of the PRP then?” Well, there is a multi-facet reasoning. Platelet rich plasma, typically, enhances your results significantly as it, in a sort, provides nutrients to the skin to heal and stimulate growth. PRP can help reduce the overall redness too and patients tend to see results more quickly and better than if just doing micro-needling alone.
Something we were excited Brigette discussed on the Free People blog and her Youtube channel video was that the process is fairly painless. There are many questions and concerns, especially for those frightened of needles about the use of a Dermapen. The dermapen needles only prior to adding a numbing lidocaine cream. This keeps patients from feeling the needles for the most part, except, perhaps the “bonier areas” as Bridgette Muller put it.
