Micro-needling is a cosmetic treatment that stimulates collagen production in the skin by triggering your body’s natural healing process. PRP therapy enhance the results of a micro-needling treatment. PRP therapy with micro-needling is recommended for common skin concerns, such as:
- Acne scars
- Lax or loose skin
- Sun damage
- Enlarged pores
- Poor skin texture
- Fine lines and wrinkles
What is PRP Therapy?
PRP, or platelet rich plasma, is a component of your blood that contains growth factors. Although the exact mechanism of growth factors has yet to be discovered, researchers have proven that this part of the plastic stimulates a regenerative process within the body. PRP therapy has been used for many years to help with healing after injuries. PRP therapy with micro-needling is a treatment that involves creating small channels in the skin through which the platelet-rich plasma is absorbed into the treated layers.
PRP Therapy with Micro-needling Treatment
PRP therapy with micro-needling is a two-step treatment. For the first step, we use a micro-needling device to creates small channels in your skin. The second step involves taking a small sample of your blood and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the PRP. The PRP is then administered into the deep layers through these channels; as the substance is culled from your own blood, there is virtually no risk of adverse reaction. This gives your skin a dual benefit of higher levels of collagen and powerful growth factors.
What to Expect from the Treatment
Collagen production and cell generation from growth factors begins immediately after the treatment. Collagen is always being broken down and replaced within your skin, and this natural process continues after your PRP therapy with micro-needling. The longevity of the treatment varies significantly because each person’s body is different. Fortunately, PRP therapy with micro-needling can be repeated as needed to skin your skin looking young and health. The goal of PRP therapy with micro-needling is to restructure the skin cells to blend consistently with the surrounding skin.
