Understanding Microneedling with PRP

On their own, microneedling and PRP are powerful treatments that can restore your skin, but when paired together, their benefits are amplified. During a consultation, we can help you better understand these two treatments.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a beauty treatment that has been around for years and years! And the reason for its longevity is that it has been proven to reduce the signs of aging while also improving the overall tone and texture of your skin. This treatment is non-surgical, making it convenient and easy.

Microneedling works by creating small microscopic channels in your skin through the use of a special device. And yes, at first, that might sound like the exact opposite of what you want. But in reality, these tiny channels can’t be seen with the human eye. Your skin will recognize them as microtraumas and will initiate the healing process. Fresh blood, white blood cells, and collagen will flood the area and renew your skin.

What is PRP?

PRP is a treatment that uses your own blood to naturally heal your skin. For this step in the process, we will need to draw a small amount of your blood. It will then be placed in a centrifuge, where it will be divided into its different parts. Taking your PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, which is full of proteins called growth factors and white blood cells, we will then create a usable serum. Since PRP contains the healing parts of your blood, once injected, those concentrated parts of your blood will get to work healing your skin while also prompting new collagen production.

Benefits Microneedling with PRP

Microneedling and PRP both have amazing benefits! But when paired with each other, those benefits are doubled. Because microneedling creates those microscopic channels, the PRP can go deeper, thus maximizing its benefits.

Paired together, these two treatments can completely rejuvenate your skin so that you look younger and more refreshed.
