Microneedling with PRP is a cutting-edge aesthetics treatment that has become increasingly popular in the world of dermatology. If you are among the millions of people looking to slow or reverse the signs of aging, then you should consider Microneedling with PRP.
Unlike plastic surgery, facelifts, and Botox, this minimally invasive, natural treatment is free from chemicals and stimulates collagen production.
It works wonders on a variety of skin conditions, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Dull complexion
- Uneven skin tone
- Acne scarring
How Does PRP Microneedling Work?
As we get older, collagen production slows, and fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear. Microneedling with PRP is a natural way to use your body’s own ability to boost new cell growth, reducing the visible lines. So, how does it work?
The first step is to determine with your doctor that Microneedling is the right procedure for your desired outcome. Once this is established, you will have a blood sample drawn. This sample goes through a process in a centrifuge to separate the plasma into a serum (Platelet-Rich Plasma) that is rich in growth factors, cytokines, and peptides.
Once the PRP is obtained, the process of microneedling can begin. Tiny needles on a derma roller are then used to create micro-injuries to the surface of the skin, allowing the platelets to penetrate the surface, triggering the body’s healing process and jumpstarting new elastin and collagen production.
The procedure typically lasts less than an hour and will likely require a serum to help soothe any redness or irritation that may follow.
Unlike surgery, you can get back to your daily routine within 24 hours. You may see some mild swelling, redness or bruising a few days after the treatment, this is common. It takes the body time to heal so it could take anywhere from 4-6 weeks to see the full results of the treatment.
Microneedling with PRP is a great option for rejuvenating your appearance, refreshing that youthful glow, without undergoing risky surgical procedures or achieving a more natural-looking result. It is important to consult with your doctor to find out if you are a good candidate and if the treatment is right for achieving your aesthetic goals.
