Microneedling uses tiny needles in the skin to make microscopic channels in the dermis, triggering the body’s healing response to kick start the production of new collagen and elastin, plumping up the skin. When you combine this treatment with PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma), the PRP penetrates through your skin using those microscopic channels and allowing your tissue to heal and produce new cells that will assist aging skin to grow new collagen and elastin for youthful results.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Process
PRP is high concentration of platelets, stem cells, and growth factors, in a small volume of plasma. It is retracted from the patient by drawing a small amount of blood by our Registered Nurse or Medical Assistant. Once the blood is retracted, the blood is placed in a centrifuge that spins the blood at a very high speed causing the platelets to separate from the other components of the blood. Once the platelets are concentrated into the plasma, they can be applied to the patient.
Candidates for Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling with PRP is safe and an effective treatment for most adults with all skin types who wish to improve the quality of skin. Microneedling is perfect for the individuals who are not candidates for lasers. You may be a great candidate if you would:
- Like to improve fine lines and wrinkles
- Bring back the glow for younger looking skin
- Firm and smooth skin texture
- Even skin tone
- Reduce the appearance of pores
- Reduce the appearance of acne scars
Aside from facial benefits, Microneeding with PRP may help also:
- Soften stretch marks
- Restore and stimulate hair growth (to scalp)
Areas of Treatment with PRP
Microneedling with PRP is a great face and body treatment. Treatment areas may include face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, back, and scalp.
Treatment and Results
Treatments vary on each patient depending on the area of concern. Most treatments range approximately 1-2 hours to complete. Patients are recommended a series of at least four treatments to see the best results. Patients will be given topical numbing medication to treatment area for optimal comfort.
The downtime after a Microneedling with PRP treatment is minimal with three to five days, depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment. A post- treatment kit is recommended to speed up your recovery.
An immediate “glow” to your skin will be noticeable within a couple of days after your procedure which will continue to improve within the next couple of weeks. Full results can be seen up to 6 months post treatment as collagen productions grow.
