LGR (Liquid Gold Rejuvenation)in New Orleans, LA | Audubon Dermatology

What is LGR?

Liquid Gold Rejuvenation (LGR) is a gold-standard combination therapy treatment where platelet rich plasma (PRP) is placed topically onto microchannels made in the skin during a microneedling treatment.

Am I a candidate for LGR?

A candidate for LGR is someone who wants to improve their appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, and or overall texture with half of the downtime that is usually associated with microneedling without the addition of PRP.

How is LGR performed?

Our nurse will draw a small amount of blood from your arm, which will then be spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from other blood components. After topically numbing the treatment area for 30 minutes, an ample amount of your own PRP is applied to the surface of your skin and acts as a glide for the microneedle pen. After the PRP has been microneedled into the skin, another layer of PRP is applied topically into the channels that were just opened.

What is recovery like after LGR?

After LGR, patients can expect to feel slightly sunburnt and tight. The downtime of regular microneedling without PRP is anywhere between 2-4 days. With the addition of PRP, downtime is cut in half to 1-2 days. Patients are given a PCA post care kit to use for the week following LGR to ensure proper healing and care. Patients are strongly advised to prohibit sun exposure for at least 2 weeks following LGR.
