Microneedling with PRP
“What I find most beneficial about microneedling with PRP is that it is the most organic, true restoration of collagen. Your own body does the work of correcting and preventing the loss of elasticity.”

PRP at Arktos Direct Care
Whether you’re seeing Dr. Hampton for prolotherapy injections or Dr. Yavari for aesthetics, you have the confidence of a PRP processing system that is above and beyond.
PRP extraction systems concentrate the elements of your blood that trigger regeneration and repair. It involves extracting your own blood, spinning it down to get rid of the red blood cells and concentrating the remaining plasma, platelets, and other growth factors to create that “liquid gold” to be used. It is important to note that to deliver effective treatment results, the concentration of platelets must reach around five to seven times the patient’s normal baseline levels.
We exclusively use Rebound PRP kits from Enso Doctors. These kits allow us to deliver optimal platelet concentrations that have been scientifically validated. This is what makes our treatments so effective.
What is PRP?
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is the liquid part of blood (plasma) that has been separated from the red blood cells and white blood cells and concentrated with a higher proportion of platelets than would normally be found in blood.
How does PRP work?
The increased concentration of platelets, and therefore growth factors, have been shown to speed up and enhance the bodies natural healing process. Using targeted injections of PRP, we can stimulate healing to occur exactly where it is needed.
How is PRP created?
PRP is made by drawing blood from a patient and then using a centrifuge to separate the different parts of the blood. The plasma and platelets are drawn up and then plasma is removed until the desired concentration of platelets is achieved.
What can PRP treat?
PRP is emerging as an effective treatment for a variety of problems. PRP treatments have been shown to be effective for joint pain due to osteoarthritis or wear and tear injuries that may typically require steroid injections or even surgery as well.
Your Platelet Rich Plasma Kit
Sometimes injuries exceed the body’s natural ability to heal itself sufficiently. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) offers a concentrated injection of growth factors (GF) to help injuries heal faster.
Our FDA registered PRP and PRF Wound Management Kits offer complete solutions that deliver ease of use, sterility, convenience and affordability backed by university science.
Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive dermatologic procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. These needles are used to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture wound creates an area for new collagen to form to repair the injury. This helps reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles and skin blemishes. Adding platelet rich plasma (PRP) introduces cytokines and growth-factors that dramatically enhance the healing response. These growth-factors promote new collagen, elastin, and blood vessel formation. PRP is made from the patients own blood drawn in the office and is incredibly safe and effective. PRP microneedling procedures are spaced approximately 4-6 weeks apart and done in the office. The effects of PRP microneedling are long lasting and typically only require a few touch ups annually.
What should I do before my PRP procedure?
We ask that you drink lots of fluids before the procedure to stay hydrated, it makes it easier for the doctor to draw your blood. Other than that, there are no other preparations needed. You can eat and drink normally. If you are having a prolotherapy with PRP procedure with Dr. Hampton, please discontinue using any NSAIDs like naproxen (Aleve) or Ibuprofen (Motrin) for 2 weeks before your PRP procedure.
