One of the hottest and most attention-grabbing skin improvement treatments around is PRP Microneedling, which uses the tiny needles of the Eclipse Micropen to cause micro-injuries to the face followed by topically applying the patient’s Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) on the skin. Denver plastic surgeon, Dr. Manish Shah, offers the treatment since the premise is that the damage caused by microneedling spurs elastin and collagen growth to repair the skin and when wound-healing blood platelets are applied to the skin, growth factors are released which speeds up the process. Dr. Shah recommends this treatment for patients with lines and wrinkles, scars and uneven texture.
PRP Therapy + Microneedling Reviews
"Hi Dr. Shah. This is **** from yesterday morning's micro-needling. I just wanted to say thank you for working with me! Everything has been great - I'm no redder than usual, no peeling, not even dry. I feel like I can already even notice a small difference. I look forward to seeing you again in a few more weeks!"- IS / Office Visit / Nov 11, 2016
"I live in northern Colorado and have been to a couple of plastic surgeons in my area. My first ps did my first BA in 1999 and the second BA for replacements 17 years later. I was never completely happy with either procedure/result.My second ps does my coolsculpt and botox, both very minor procedures. When I asked him about a lower facelift he said "too early for you, wait about 10 years" so I took my saggy jawline and baby jowls and got a second opinion from Dr. Shah after researching on Realself. So glad I did! Dr. Shah agreed with the other doc that my situation was not dire enough for a lower facelift but recommended lipo of the jawline and microneedling for mild wrinkles. The procedure was an hour and was a piece of cake. Recovery was a breeze, but my bruising was noticable. Glad I took two weeks off of work. I do still have a little numb and a little sore here and there. I am 4 weeks post and could not be happier. The entire experience is what good plastic surgery should be: comfortable, informed, and done by a master plastic surgeon!"- T. / RealSelf / Jun 19, 2017
"My initial meeting with Dr. Manish Shah was for a consult with my wife who eventually completed facial procedures. She is thoroughly satisfied and enjoys the results every day. The relationship with Dr. Shah continued as I elected to begin Microneedling with PRP for hair restoration treatment. I have completed my fourth and final treatment, and although the full results may not be realized until year's end I am already seeing results. I am encouraged as I see new hair growth. Our confidence in Dr. Shah is borne out of his conservative approach and recommendations. His explanations of procedures and expected outcomes build trust. AB"- S.C. / RealSelf / Jun 19, 2017
"PS my treatment was awesome. I can absolutely see results. It feels tighter and fine lines are gone. And... I love Rebecca. You both make it a great experience! See you Monday for Botox :) Have a great weekend."- RA / Office Visit / Nov 17, 2016
"Dr. Shah, Elizabeth and I appreciate the personal and professional manner that you demonstrate to us. Elizabeth remarked after her most recent appointment, "Dr. Shah treats me as I am his only patient." Thank you for what and how you do! Sincerely, Elizabeth and AB"- AB / Office Visit / Feb 20, 2014
