Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today – Micro-needling & PRP – What Is It & Why It’s GREAT for your skin: Dr Lycka & Dr Marotta

Micro-needling and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) are an excellent combination of procedures which really help your skin look better than it ever has done before. Micro-needling can sound off-putting but after hearing how it is done, how it feels and the results you can get you will be very eager to find out more! Same goes for PRP – it is natural, it is yours as it comes from your own blood, and it stimulates collagen growth and puts growth factors back into your skin. It is great used in combination with many other procedures as it stimulates and speeds up the healing processes in the skin. So this week on Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today we welcome Dr James Marotta, dual Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon, from Smithtown, Long Island, NY, as he discusses micro-needling and PRP with your show host, Edmonton cosmetic dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka. The two doctors discuss how micro-needling has developed, how it is used in cosmetic procedures and what the experience is like from a patient’s perspective. They also talk about PRP, the development of the science and the many ways it benefits the skin, its well-being and healing.
