Chances are you’ve heard of microneedling. Big Hollywood names like Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston, Kim Kardashian, and Brad Pitt love this cosmetic treatment because of the way it makes their skin look and feel. Essentially, microneedling uses a special device with micro-needles to puncture your skin. This creates micro-injuries which leads to an increase in collagen production as your skin heals. It leads to smoother, firmer, more youthful skin.
While microneedling can do wonders for your face, it can lead to incredible results when paired with PRP. So what exactly is PRP and why should you combine it with your microneedling treatment? Let’s dive deeper into the answers to these questions.
PRP is an acronym for platelet-rich plasma. It’s a component of your blood that is made up of proteins that allow it to clot. When injected into the skin, PRP has been proven to cause healing which regenerates tissue. During a microneedling treatment, one of our expert providers can apply your own PRP over your skin.
This will stimulate new collagen and elastin, leaving you with the beautiful skin tone and texture you’ve been longing for. In addition, PRP expedites the healing process after a microneedling treatment. You can add PRP to a traditional microneedling treatment in order to enjoy more dramatic results.
Benefits of PRP with Microneedling
Microneedling with PRP can immensely improve your skin’s condition, especially if you’re struggling with fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, melasma, and other common skin concerns. Through the skin’s healing process, your body will produce more collagen meaning it’s a completely safe and natural treatment.
If you lead a busy life, you’ll love PRP with microneedling because it’s non-invasive. Immediately after treatment, you can resume work and your daily activities. You can expect redness, mild swelling or red patches on your skin, but these will fade away in just a few hours.
