Microneedling with PRP

Microneedling with PRP is “Hollywood’s Hottest Secret” that has become very popular after being credited by Kim Kardashian. Skin rejuvenation with microneedling is a great procedure, and the addition of PRP, Platelet-Rich-Plasma, takes the treatment to the next level. This resurfacing procedure offers benefits to anyone who wants to improve and rejuvenate the overall health of their skin.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling or collagen induction therapy is one of the latest innovations in beauty industry. The treatment causes your own skin to immediately begin to repair itself, build collagen, and become rejuvenated. Microneedling makes the skin look youthfully thicker and reduces signs of aging, large pores, skin laxity and facial scarring from acne. It is a good treatment for non-invasively reducing fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing acne scars , fading dark spots and reducing stretch marks, among other uses.

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been in use for years to help speed recovery from sports injuries. PRP is a concentration of platelets in the blood that are crucial to wound healing. When used for skin rejuvenation, platelet-rich plasma utilizes your body’s own materials to create a serum that increases the growth factors of your skin. This growth factors are important for new cell generation and creating new collagen and elastic fibers.

What are the Benefits of Microneedling with PRP?

Microneedling with PRP uses fine needles to create micro holes in your skin. Microneedling initiates the skin’s natural ability to heal itself, producing collagen and elastin, while PRP represents a way to enhance the healing of your skin cells, increasing the growth factors of your skin. The two therapies work in synergy to create a treatment that brings better results than each part could alone. It is used to improve texture and tone, fine lines and wrinkles, as well as surface scarring.

  • Rejuvenates aged and sun-damaged skin
  • Reduces acne and superficial scars from past injury
  • Reduces age spots
  • Minimizes blotchy skin coloring
  • Improves overall skin appearance

Which Areas of the Body can be Treated with Microneedling and PRP?

What does the Treatment Involve?

First, we apply numbing cream to the area which will be treated. While you are waiting for the cream to start working, we withdraw a small amount of blood from your arm and use the plasma from it to boost the freshness of your skin and improve its tone and texture. After numbing your skin with topical cream, we use a device for microneedling that creates hundreds of tiny channels in the skin. This first step creates macroscopic injuries to the skin in order to provoke a healing process. Then we inject and apply your own processed serum PRP to the skin, to help speed and intensify the repair and rejuvenation of your skin.


How Long is the Treatment, and What can I Expect?

Total treatment time is about one hour. Since we apply a topical numbing cream prior to the treatment, discomfort is significantly lessened. While you are numbing, we draw your blood and centrifuge it to obtain the PRP. The microneedling takes about 30-minutes. The downtime is minimal with only one to three days of mild redness. You’ll notice an immediate “glow” to your skin and it will continue to improve over the next few weeks.
