What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy, and that’s because it rejuvenates the skin by prompting the body to produce new, fresh collagen for stronger, healthier skin. Microneedling uses microscopic needles that puncture the skin at different depths to trick the body into thinking it has experienced an injury. The body then rushes collagen to the area to rebuild. The needles themselves are so fine that they are difficult to see with the naked eye, and the depth can be adjusted for your unique needs and treatment area.
What Is PRP?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, has been around for a while, but its power to make beauty and cosmetic treatments more effective is only recently being fully understood. Your blood contains a number of elements, and one of the most important parts of the blood is the platelets that rush to heal wounds whenever you have an injury.
By taking a small amount of your blood and isolating and concentrating those platelets, we can harness your body’s own natural healing powers and put them to work wherever you need. Best of all, since this powerful treatment comes from your own body, there’s no risk of an allergic reaction or rejection.
Combining Microneedling With PRP
Both of these treatments can be effective on their own, but when you add PRP to a microneedling session, the results could be truly fantastic. PRP is rich in human growth factors and vascular endothelial growth factors, both of which induce cells to regenerate quickly.
Microneedling with PRP is powerful because the microneedling creates thousands of microscopic channels in the skin, allowing the potent platelets to go right where you need them most: the lower dermal layer of the skin. Best of all, combining microneedling with PRP makes the entire rejuvenation process speed up, meaning you should see your results more quickly than with microneedling alone.
What Can Be Treated?
This powerful combination of treatments stimulates the body’s own growth and renewal cycle to dramatically refresh the skin. It may be used to:
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Minimize the size of pores
- Tighten the skin
- Improve the texture and tone of the skin
- Improve spots of hyperpigmentation
- Reduce the appearance of scars and sunspots
- Improve acne scarring
It’s important to note that results vary from patient to patient, and more than one treatment session may be necessary for optimal results to be achieved.
