More about PRP Microneedling
How does microneedling work?
Microneedling allows for controlled stimulation of the skin’s self-repair process by creating precise, micro-injuries in the skin, which automatically triggers new collagen formation without causing scar tissue or any damage to the skin. These micro-injuries create channels that allow products to penetrate deeper into the skin resulting in better efficacy.
PRP + Microneedling
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is typically combined with microneedling treatments to act as a “booster” or “fertilizer” for even more dramatic results. This liquid gold substance is extremely potent in growth factors taken from your own blood, and then massaged over the open micro-channels from microneedling. This kickstarts a huge amount of collagen production in the skin, which repairs damaged skin resulting from acne scarring, breaks up sun spots and hyperpigmentation, tightens lax skin, plumps out fine lines and wrinkles, reduces pore size, and refines texture.
Once PRP is in the skin, it essentially plants itself in the deepest layers to continuously produce collagen over time for extended results. It is considered a natural filler and can be injected to plump out areas that have experienced volume loss.
What does Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy do?
Platelet Rich Plasma is relatively simple to obtain and the entire process can be done in-office in less than a half-hour. A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and then spun in a centrifuge. This separates the platelets – which comprise just a tiny percentage of the blood – from red and white blood cells. By isolating the platelets, you’re able to produce a highly-concentrated plasma. This is then injected into the area of skin being treated, releasing growth factors that recruit and increase reparative cells. Since platelet rich plasma is produced from the patient’s own blood, it is the ultimate in “natural” healing.
