Microneedling with PRP Overview
Microneedling with PRP is a non-invasive treatment that renews the skin and minimizes signs of aging. It stimulates collagen production and improves skin conditions such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone and texture.
Let’s take a closer look at Microneedling with PRP and the benefits it provides.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling or collagen induction therapy (CIT) is a skin rejuvenation treatment that transforms the health and appearance of the skin. It works by stimulating the production of collagen.
During microneedling, a hand-held device with tiny needles is used to make microscopic microchannels in the skin that promote your body’s natural repair response. In turn, you produce more collagen and elastin, which are structural proteins that make the skin firm and elastic.
Microneedling is an incredibly effective skin rejuvenation treatment on its own. However, when PRP is added to microneedling, the skin regenerating benefits are multiplied because PRP kickstarts the healing of skin and soft tissues.
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?
PRP is a serum that contains a high concentration of blood platelets, growth factors, and stem cells.
To produce PRP, our Registered Nurse or Medical Assistant will first draw a small sample of blood from your arm. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge and spun at high speed to isolate the platelets from the other components. This process yields a high concentration of platelets that releases growth factors and encourages tissue healing. The regenerating serum is injected into the facial areas where rejuvenation is required.
PRP is applied topically after microneedling and spreads smoothly and evenly. The concentrated serum penetrates deep into the dermis through the microchannels created during the microneedling treatment and promotes cell turnover.
You will see a noticeable improvement in the health and appearance of your skin after about four treatments.
Microneedling with PRP is a low-risk procedure that is suitable for all skin types. The treatment leaves your skin healthy and glowing, and the effects last up to 6 months.
