Microneedling has always been one of the most effective ways to stimulate collagen production in the skin. With added platelet-rich plasma (PRP), microneedling becomes even more effective in regenerating and rebuilding the skin. PRP microneedling maximizes the benefits of a microneedling treatment.
What is PRP Microneedling?
By harnessing natural healing and growth signals found in your own blood, PRP microneedling accelerates and enhances the results of ordinary microneedling. Rejuve Med Spa experts use the SkinPen®, the only FDA-cleared microneedling device. The SkinPen® creates tiny micro-channels into the skin. This triggers a process of healing and regeneration, beginning with bringing fresh blood flow and nourishment to the area. The skin cells start to produce collagen, a structural protein that gives the skin strength, support, and firmness.
PRP improves this process by adding a flood of healing and growth factors as well as stem cells. Your Rejuve Med Spa expert will extract PRP from a small amount of your own blood and then inject it into the skin. The platelets and other healing proteins immediately start repairing the micro-channels. As the cells initiate collagen production, stem cells in the PRP will also become collagen-producing cells, improving your overall results.
What are the Benefits of PRP Microneedling?
Microneedling has many benefits to offer, but with PRP microneedling, people see enhanced results and improved skin health. This procedure can provide benefits including:
- Firmer, more resilient skin
- More even skin tone and texture
- Decrease in hyperpigmentation
- Improvement in signs of sun damage
- Reduction in lines and wrinkles
- Decreased appearance of acne scars
- Smaller, less visible pores
PRP enhances the healing process, so you have less downtime, but it also enhances collagen production, so your skin looks even firmer, more youthful, and healthier. PRP speeds up the results of treatment, so you begin to see improvements more quickly and see your full results sooner.
Is There Any Downtime with PRP Microneedling?
After your PRP microneedling session, you will have up to four days of redness and sensitivity that feel somewhat like a sunburn. Your skin needs sun protection while it heals, so avoid exposure as much as possible.
What Results Can I Expect From PRP Microneedling?
Most people need three sessions of PRP microneedling with the SkinPen® to achieve full results, although more significant issues may require six to eight sessions. You will begin to see results more quickly as a result of the PRP treatment, with results appearing within a few months. Your results will become most noticeable after about six months. Once desired results have been achieved, you can maintain your healthy-looking, rejuvenated skin with annual maintenance treatments.
