Learn why celebrities love microneedling with PRP, and you will too. Microneedling with PRP, the lowdown.
This breakthrough procedure renews your skin from the inside out, igniting collagen and elastin renewal. Microneedling and PRP therapy is a minimally invasive treatment that promotes optimal facial rejuvenation and skin revitalization by harnessing your body’s own natural repair mechanisms.
Microneedling optimizes collagen and elastin production while simultaneously encouraging rapid healing and tissue regeneration from the cellular level up. In doing so, your skin texture is transformed. Your skin will be stronger, tighter, and smoother, with more youthful vibrancy.
Sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy, microneedling uses an innovative device that resembles a pen with an automated tip that contains at least a dozen ultra-fine needles.
When this specialized tool is gently and systematically pressed across the surface of your skin, superficial microchannels are created. These microchannels trigger your internal healing mechanisms. That means your body radically escalates its production of collagen and elastin from your deepest dermal layer all the way through to the surface of your skin.
On its own, microneedling delivers incredible results, and many clients opt for it as a stand-alone treatment. For even more dramatic results, microneedling is combined with PRP.
PRP therapy is a form of regenerative medicine that uses a concentrated preparation of platelets derived from your own blood. Your platelets contain hundreds of special growth factors, many of which stimulate cellular proliferation and encourage accelerated tissue regeneration.
Here’s how it works: To start, a small amount of your blood is drawn. Your blood is then spun in a special machine to separate and concentrate the platelets; your personal PRP serum has 5-10 times as many platelets — and growth factors — as what’s found in normal, circulating blood.
The PRP serum is then carefully applied to the fresh microchannels in your skin. With its powerful growth factors, the PRP elevates collagen growth and elastin renewal to the next level.
Whether you’re looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, or correct other textural skin flaws, microneedling with PRP can help.
The microneedling process itself is comfortable from start to finish, as your skin is first covered with a fast-acting topical numbing cream. As the numbing agent takes effect, we draw a small amount of blood from your arm to prepare your personal PRP serum.
Once your skin is fully desensitized, the microneedling portion of the treatment is performed, followed by the careful application of the PRP serum across the entire area. The entire treatment takes about an hour and a half.
Within about 24 hours, after any mild redness and minor inflammation subside, you should notice a healthy glow, improved skin tone, and texture. You may also notice restored facial volume. Expect continued improvement in the following weeks and months.
