Are you tired of dull-looking skin that may have scarring or marks? Do you want to improve your skin’s texture and appearance to restore that youthful glow? PRP microneedling could be the solution. This is an innovative treatment that combines micro-needling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to rejuvenate your complexion.
This process utilizes a roller with tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries in your skin. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, helps heal scars, and reduces the signs of aging. The result? Better skin texture and tone. The results are even better when you combine microneedling with PRP, which is applied topically to your skin prior to and after microneedling to stimulate the healing process and promote a youthful glow.
How it Works
Microneedling with PRP is essentially a cosmetic treatment that rolls fine needles all over the skin while applying platelets — one of the main components of blood. Plasma is the liquid in blood, and platelets are the solid. Platelets are what will help blood to clot and are important in healing wounds. PRP is plasma with a higher concentration of platelets.
The specialist will take a blood sample and then use a centrifuge to separate the PRP from the rest of your blood. PRP is rich in proteins, including cytokines and growth factors designed to help skin tissue self-repair. The specialist will then prick your skin with a microneedling tool to create tiny holes in the surface of your skin. After that, PRP will be applied to those tiny holes to encourage cell reproduction as well as collagen production.
What Are the Benefits of PRP Microneedling?
Many people opt for microneedling with PRP to treat marks or blemishes on their body or face. Microneedling with PRP can treat:
- Acne scars
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Large pores
- Surgical scars
- Uneven skin texture
- Sun damage
Microneedling, in combination with PRP, has been known to speed up the healing process while stimulating skin renewal to produce more promising results than microneedling alone.
One study revealed that PRP microneedling for acne scars improved scarring, led to higher patient satisfaction, and decreased downtime after the procedure.
How many treatments you will need will depend on your unique circumstances and why you are having the procedure done. For example, you may need repeat treatments of PRP microneedling to repair aging skin.
Key benefits of this procedure include:
- Improved skin texture: Patients can experience a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, and wrinkles to result in smoother skin.
- Enhanced collagen production: PRP accelerates collagen production to ensure your skin maintains its firmness and elasticity.
- Safety and effectiveness: This non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure is suitable for all skin types.
