Microneedling with PRP (or Platelet-rich Plasma) is a safe and effective aesthetic procedure that helps to even the skin tone, improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, give a firmer and smoother texture, and reduce sun spots and acne scars.
Microneedling with PRP rejuvenates the skin by:
- Evening the skin tone
- Improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Gives a firmer and smoother texture
- Reduces sun spots and acne scars
The procedure is simple, and many experience minimal pain. The process begins with blood being drawn from the patient. Next, this blood is put into a centrifuge and spun to isolate the Platelet-rich Plasma.
This Platelet-rich Plasma is rich in growth factors that can trigger cell reproduction and stimulate tissue regeneration or healing in the treated area. Next, the PRP is put aside while a microneedling pen is used to create tiny micro-punctures to the skin. Our patients usually describe this sensation as similar to sandpaper moving across the skin.
The Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is then painted onto the skin in the areas where the skin was microneedled. The body’s natural collagen is stimulated through this process. Over the next few weeks, the condition of the skin will continue to improve and tighten.
Recovery time is usually 1-3 days, depending on how aggressive the treatment is. The quality of the skin will continue to improve up to 6 months after the procedure.
