What is microneedling with PRP?
Microneedling and PRP injections are two separate treatments that are combined together in this process to help patients achieve maximum results from their sessions:
- Microneedling – microneedling is a procedure that uses a specialized roller with very small, fine needles. The provider rolls these needles over the skin to prick the upper layer and stimulate the patient’s own collagen and elastin production. The formation of collagen and elastin in the skin will reduce the appearance of scarring while turning back time by smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles.
- PRP – PRP stands for platelet rich plasma. This is an element found in the blood that provides proteins and growth factors that help the skin’s tissue repair itself in a natural manner. It is harvested from a sample of the patient’s own blood and is reinjected during the microneedling process. This is done to further improve the results found with this treatment, and is an advanced and reliable method of improving the skin’s texture and tone.
