When Can I Return to Work After Microneedling? Santa Monica

When Can I Go Back to Work After Microneedling?

Microneedling with PRP is an innovative rejuvenative treatment that uses platelet-rich plasma and infuses it into the skin using microchannels created by microneedling. The treatment takes about one hour to perform in our Santa Monica plastic surgery office and utilizes dual mode skin stimulation treatments to build collagen and stimulate cellular renewal. More and more plastic surgeons and cosmetic dermatologists are using microneedling with PRP post-surgery to improve scar quality and skin healing. 

After your microneedling treatment at Kare Plastic Surgery + Skin Health Center, you may experience some mild redness along the treated areas. We advise patients to use makeup should they have an important social or work obligation after treatment. Post-care treatment includes the application of retinoid creams and Melarase creams to help further stimulate skin quality. 

Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is an expert in PRP therapy with Microneedling. During your consultation, he will determine your candidacy for treatment and provide you with a protocol-driven treatment regimen.
