How PRP Microneedling Works
During microneedling treatments a clinical grade instrument penetrates the skin with dozens of ultra-fine needles. These microscopic needle “pricks” act as invisible wounds that “trick” the skin into repairing itself. The healing process stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, rebuilding the skin cells for renewed plumpness, tone, and elasticity.
The microneedling treatment is accompanied by the injection of PRP, which has been extracted from the patient’s own blood. After a routine blood draw, the patient’s blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate out just the “Platelet Rich Plasma” (PRP). This plasma contain up to 8 times the “growth factor” found in whole blood.
Combined with microneedling, the “PRP” helps the body build new skin cells – improving skin tightness, tone and elasticity. The result is visibly smoother and more youthful skin! As the skin naturally rejuvenates itself, patients generally see results within a few weeks after just one treatment. And multiple treatments – spaced a month or so apart – lead to even greater benefits.
