Minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatments have risen in popularity in recent years, so it’s not surprising that treatments like microneedling are now in the spotlight. In some cases, microneedling is done alongside PRP to achieve even better aesthetic outcomes. But what are the benefits of using PRP with microneedling?
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses a small hand-held device with tiny needles to create indiscernible micro-channels in the skin. The trauma created by the needles initiates the skin’s repair process and stimulates the production of collagen.
What Is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy involves the use of injections of a patient’s own platelets to help with tissue repair. Platelets are present in the blood and contain essential growth factors that stimulate cell regeneration. The platelets are derived from a blood sample taken from the patient which is spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood.
What Are The Benefits Of Using PRP With Microneedling?
Combining PRP with microneedling enhances skin rejuvenation. PRP with microneedling is a wonderful way to revive aging skin and improve skin concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, sun spots, large pores, and uneven skin texture.
Microneedling stimulates the production of collagen but adding PRP supercharges the regenerative effects of the treatment, because PRP helps with tissue repair.
Another great benefit of PRP with microneedling is its ability to rebuild the skin from the inside through cell regeneration. The combination treatment helps to create new, healthy skin cells that improve the tone and texture of the skin.
