Microneedling with PRP will take your anti-aging regimen to the next level.
Your typical Microneedling procedure will stimulate collagen production and reduce the signs of aging, such as the appearance of wrinkles and lines, hyperpigmentation, sunspot and acne scar, and bring back the skin’s laxity and elasticity. PRP will speed up the healing process and stimulate tissue regeneration for more immediate, evident, and long-lasting results.
Combat the signs of aging with the combination of these treatments. They go hand in hand in complementing each other to provide a more effective outcome for the skin.
What is a Microneedling treatment?
Microneedling or Micro channeling is a non-surgical and pain-free procedure that offers notable and remarkable results. It uses micro “needles” to create micro “wounds,” which initiates and triggers collagen production in revitalizing and rejuvenating the skin.
Microneedling is known for its anti-aging benefits which includes reducing acne scarring, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. This treatment became even more prevalent because of its compatibility as a combined treatment with other services such as PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). The tiny wounds from Microneedling allow more absorption and deeper penetration of PRP in the skin.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma?
Our blood consists of different components where the large portion is plasma (mainly liquid), and the smaller percentage is made up of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
These components of blood have a significant role in your body. Platelets, for instance, are preeminent for their importance in blood clotting. It also comprises several proteins named growth factors which are essential in the healing of wounds and injuries. These extraordinary abilities of blood are made more concentrated in a centrifuge where the PRP is separated from other components.
Because of this, PRP therapy started working in the orthopedic field for treating various bone-related problems and later on in skin rejuvenation. It became mainstream in cosmetics because of artist Kim Kardashian West who tried this therapy and proved its efficacy and safety.
Moreover, PRP is used to treat numerous skin conditions such as acne, alopecia, and skin ulcers.
How is Microneedling with PRP an effective anti-aging therapy?
Although traditional Microneedling is already regarded as safe and effective in treating skin-related problems, adding PRP to the treatment intensifies its result. Microneedling with PRP maximizes the skin collagen production that boosts and speeds up the healing process—making the entire journey more manageable, faster, and effective, resulting in more radiant, youthful, and glowing skin. Moreover, adding PRP with Microneedling treatment facilitates growth hormones by linking cells, making the old, broken, or matured skin supplanted with healthy and restored skin.
Clinical studies have revealed that skin needling can be a very effective anti-aging therapy. A 2018 study established the efficacy of Microneedling. The 48 patients who participated in the study received 4 Microneedling sessions every month in five months have highly improved wrinkles, fine lines, and skin texture.
Other than combating the signs of aging, Microneedling with PRP also has the ability to:
- Smoothen rough skin texture
- Minimize pores
- Eliminate acne scars
- Reduce sun damage
- Removing age spots
- Reduce hyperpigmentation
- Soften fine lines and wrinkle
- Reduce the appearance of stretch marks
- Improve dull complexion
- Stimulates hair growth
- Increases collagen production
What is the procedure of Microneedling with PRP?
If you plan for Microneedling with PRP treatment and wonder what the procedure will be, these are the steps that we usually do with our clients.
- The first is consultation. We will evaluate and check your skin type and ask about your specific concerns. After the assessment, we will suggest the right treatment that best suits your skin.
- After your skin examination, we will collect samples of your blood for the centrifugation process. This is done to separate the particles of your blood, leaving the platelet-rich samples needed for the treatment.
- We will proceed with Microneedling that will create tiny wounds that will stimulate collagen production on the treated area.
- Lastly, we will apply PRP as topical in the treated area.
However, you may feel slight redness and inflammation after the treatment, which should be gone after a couple of days. You’ll also need to avoid sun exposure, rub, or pick at your face after the treatment because your skin is susceptible during this time. Apply sunscreen whenever you go outside to protect your skin.
Does Microneedling with PRP hurt?
It is easy for patients to suspect that the procedure includes pain because of the needles used in the treatment. You may feel a tiny puncture and prickling during Microneedling, but it is totally manageable. We will apply a topical anesthetic cream to numb the treatment area.
How many treatments do I need to take?
To get the desired and utmost result of Microneedling with PRP, you should undergo three to six treatments that will give you long-term results. We will help you create a perfect treatment plan during your consultation.
What most clients like best about this treatment is that it causes minimal or no damage to your skin compared to lasers and other ablative procedures. It is more convenient because you are not required to put so much effort into the aftercare treatment. You can already go back to your work or daily routine right after the treatment!
Microneedling with PRP treatment is becoming more popular due to its remarkable results when dealing with different aging skin problems. However, every treatment has its side effects and complications if not properly conducted by certified beauty enthusiasts.
