What is PRP?
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. Platelets are naturally present in your blood are essential for healing. Platelets contain proteins called growth factors. When your body needs to heal or regenerate tissue, growth factors stimulate new cell growth, producing all the different types of tissues needed to restore health.
PRP involves concentrated platelets, rich in bioactive proteins, which release growth factors to stimulate cellular regeneration and accelerate tissue repair. The platelets and plasma are separated using a centrifuge and are then carefully prepared for reinjection.
As a technique that accelerates the body’s natural healing processes, used alongside microneedling, the treated area of skin can restore and rejuvenate for a firmer, more youthful texture and flexibility.
How does Microneedling with PRP work?
The treatment involves the use of microneedling and PRP consecutively. First, the microneedling device is used to create micro-wounds on the skin, triggering the body’s healing process,producing both collagen and elastin. Then, the PRP is applied directly to the channels that were created from the micro-needling to further stimulate the natural healing process and creation of collagen.
After your treatment, you will notice immediate results, which will continue to improve over the next few days and weeks. You should see the texture and quality of your skin continue to improve.
What are the benefits of microneedling with PRP?
PRP supercharges the microneedling benefits. Microneedling with PRP can restore volume and the healthy glow of your skin without surgery or other invasive treatments and is extremely effective for difficult to treat areas, such as the under-eye area. PRP is particularly good for reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Since PRP is derived from your own blood, the side effects are virtually eliminated.
