WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING WITH PRP?
Microneedling is a treatment that involves the use of tiny needles that produce micro-injuries to the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural collagen production – that substance that provides flexibility and strength to the skin and body tissue.
To speed the healing process, microneedling is further enhanced by injecting or brushing small amount of your own blood, from which the plasma is separated to concentrate healing properties.
Microneedling with PRP can be used in several different areas of the body, including the face, neck, arms, abdomen, back, hands and legs.
Some of the things that we can treat with PRP microneedling include:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars
- Large pores
- Uneven skin texture
- Sun damage
- And more
How Does Microneedling Work?
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a product we use to help create more youthful-looking skin. It is made from your own blood. To create PRP, we place a small blood sample in a centrifuge. Then it spins to separate the red blood cells from the platelets. The result is highly concentrated PRP, which we use for the microneedling treatment.
Here’s a quick breakdown of how PRP with microneedling works:
- Step 1: A hyaluronic-based filler is injected into certain areas of your face to plump up the skin and make it look more youthful. We want to maintain a natural contour and shape, so it doesn’t look like you’ve had “work done”, while still reaching your aesthetics goals.
- Step 2: Platelet-rich plasma is created for the microneedling treatment, as described above.
- Step 3: Tiny needles are used to inject the PRP into specific areas of your face that have been targeted as the best options for a more youthful-looking appearance. From there, new tissue will be generated from the platelet-rich plasma. This enhances your appearance and creating the look you want.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure. Especially compared to many conventional aesthetics treatments. There’s also very little downtime, if any. Since the treatment is completed using your own blood, the likelihood of side effects or similar issues is virtually non-existent.
You don’t have to worry about chemical burns, scarring, or any of the other potential problems that can occur with conventional treatments for youthful skin.
WHEN DO I SEE RESULTS?
The benefits of the procedure are almost immediate. Once micro-injuries are created, your natural healing responses start. It may take a few weeks after micro-needling with Platelet-Rich Plasma to see visible improvement. Several treatments spaced a few weeks apart may be needed to achieve desired results.
