Microneedling with PRP

In San Antonio

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is an effective and non-surgical way to improve your skin’s quality by smoothing wrinkles and lines, enhancing its volume, and reducing the look of acne scars. When coupled with PRP (platelet-rich plasma), the skin’s regenerative response is dramatically improved. 

If you are considering a non-surgical skin enhancement that produces a visible improvement in skin quality, microneedling with PRP is a patient favorite at The Skin Elite, thanks to its consistently remarkable results.

The Magic of PRP

PRP is a serum created from your own blood that offers a concentrated quantity of platelets, which contain more than thirty bioactive substances to stimulate skin regeneration. When the PRP is applied in conjunction with microneedling, it enables the natural healing serum to flow more deeply into the structure of your skin.

PRP also contains three proteins that help the cells adhere to each other, further enhancing its regenerative healing effect. This procedure boosts natural collagen and elastin production to create firmer, more supple skin – no surgery required.


How Is Microneedling with PRP performed?

Microneedling with PRP utilizes the healing benefits of two innovative procedures. First, microneedling is performed to create the micro-channels on the skin's surface that are known to initiate collagen and elastin production.

What to expect during Microneedling with PRP treatment?

A small sample of your blood will be drawn and placed in a centrifuge to separate it and draw out the PRP for your treatment. The growth factors, proteins, and healing elements in the PRP are applied to your skin before the microneedling, which allows the serum to penetrate more deeply and create more impressive results. In the days and weeks ahead, the increased collagen and elastin produced by your body will result in smoother, brighter skin. The procedure is reasonably easy to experience, as the needles on the device are ultra-fine, and a numbing gel will be applied before your procedure to ensure that the treatment is as comfortable as possible.

What does Microneedling with PRP feel like?

This treatment starts with your practitioner numbing your skin using a topical cream. A sample of your blood is drawn to create the PRP, which will then be spun in a centrifuge. The PRP is then applied to your skin, and the microneedling begins. The device is passed over your skin for about 15 minutes, focusing on a series of specific treatment areas. You will feel the needles, but our patients find the treatment relatively comfortable to experience.

How many treatments do I need?

The number of treatments you may choose to undergo will depend upon your skin quality and cosmetic goals. A series of treatments may be advisable, and our skincare experts will perform a thorough skin evaluation before any treatments. We’ll let you know precisely what you can expect from your procedure and how many microneedling with PRP sessions you'll need before you can enjoy your ideal results.

What is the recovery like?

After your treatment, your skin will be a little reddened and may feel tight or slightly warm. You may experience some minor peeling. Any after-effect typically disappears completely within three to four days, leaving your skin feeling smoother and healthier. As the days and weeks pass, your skin will continue to regenerate from within, and you’ll go on noticing an improvement in your overall look.
