Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Plasma
PRP contains special growth factors that attract stem cells to the specific treatment area. From here, the stem cells can copy into the relevant cells, becoming brand new cells for the body. As an example, let’s say you wanted to make your skin look more full and have added elasticity. PRP targets collagen fibers to replicate these cells and increase collagen production.
How does this combine with microneedling treatment? Well, our microneedling service uses the state-of-the-art SkinPen to provide minute punctures in your skin. These penetrations encourage the stimulation of collagen and elastin, urging your skin to recover and regrow. On its own, this treatment is highly effective, but we can also add a PRP injection to speed things along. In turn, this fast-tracks the healing process and can also reduce some of the side effects seen through microneedling. It also boosts the body’s ability to grow new cells, which is why this is often called collagen induction therapy.
Benefits of PRP Microneedling
The main benefits are that you see faster results from your microneedling. As a result, this means you can have fewer microneedling treatments before seeing the desired effects. Some of these effects include:
- A reduction of wrinkles and fine lines
- Clearer skin by removing scars and blemishes
- Firmer and softer skin thanks to increased collagen fiber strength
- Reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation
Both PRP and microneedling exist as treatments on their own. Here, they can have completely different uses and benefits. Together, they form an excellent team at treating many common skin issues on your face. You can add PRP to microneedling for an extra fee if you want to improve the overall effectiveness.
