What are the benefits of combining microneedling with PRP?

Are you looking for a remedy for your aging or sun damaged skin? PRP and microneedling are excellent skin enhancement treatments that can boost the tone and texture of the skin. Both treatments can work well on their own, but what are the benefits of combining microneedling with PRP.

What is microneedling?
Microneedling (collagen induction therapy), is a skin rejuvenation procedure in which a device with numerous tiny needles is used to revive the skin’s regenerative process. The needles create miniscule pin-holes in the skin that trigger the production of new collagen and elastin within the dermal layer of the skin. Microneedling treats skin imperfections such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven texture, and acne scars.

What is PRP?
PRP or platelet-rich plasma therapy is a procedure that can be used to repair damage to the skin. It is done by drawing blood from the patient, which is then processed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets. The platelets, which are rich in growth factors, are then applied to the skin and promote tissue remodeling. PRP reduces wrinkles and fine lines and treats acne scars and stretch marks.

What are the benefits of combining microneedling with PRP?
When combined with microneedling, the PRP is able to penetrate deeper into the skin through the micro-channels that were created. This allows the growth factors to reach into more components of the skin. PRP can therefore affect the skin in a more uniform way, and deliver long lasting skin rejuvenation results.

Combining microneedling with PRP provides superior skin rejuvenation benefits, and enriches the overall quality of the skin.
