What Is Microneedling with PRP?
Microneedling with PRP is a powerful skin rejuvenation treatment. This non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment involves jumpstarting the natural tissue and growth process of your skin and enhancing the process with the help of your body’s growth factors via PRP.
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a golden yellow substance. It is packed with growth factors, and it is obtained from your own blood. Your PRP is entirely unique to you!
Microneedling with PRP may be used to enhance the appearance of:
- Enlarged pores
- Fine lines
- Skin texture
- Skin laxity
- Stretch marks
- Volume loss
Microneedling is an effective choice for promoting the production of important fibers, such as collagen and elastin. This fibers are important for supporting skin, but their presence naturally declines over time.
What Does the Treatment Process Involve?
This combination treatment process begins with collecting PRP. To begin this process, a blood draw is performed. This blood is placed in a centrifuge. As this device spins at a rapid rate, it separates the powerful growth factors from the rest of the blood. Once the separation is complete, the golden growth factors are collected so they may be purified and prepared for treatment.
The PRP is used during the treatment as it is needled into the skin and placed post treatment. Following treatment, you may experience some redness and peeling. However, this usually subsides within 72 hours. It is important to refrain from exercise for 48 hours after treatment, but you should be able to return to work the next day.
As microneedling with PRP involves the growth processes of your skin and body, it is important to allow plenty of time to see the results of treatment. While you may experience some initial results shortly after treatment, the best results gradually develop over time. A series of treatments may be recommended for the best results.
Could This Treatment Be Right for Me?
As this treatment triggers your healing processes and utilizes your own growth factors, it is a good treatment for most individuals. It may be performed on most skin tones and types. Most generally healthy adults seeking a more natural approach to skin rejuvenation may qualify as candidates.
