The natural process of aging may lead to a dull, lifeless complexion. If you wish there was a way to rejuvenate your face and add some life back into it, you’re in luck. Microneedling, which involves using a special device with micro-needles to puncture your skin can lead to incredible results, especially when it’s paired with PRP.
PRP with microneedling can be a great way to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots so you look younger and more refreshed. Keep reading to find out why pairing PRP with microneedling is such a good idea.
PRP is a concentration of platelet in the blood. Your platelets are essential for healing wounds and regenerating tissue. When your own PRP is applied over your skin during a microneedling treatment, new collagen and elastin will be produced and leave you with a firmer, more youthful skin tone and texture.
PRP can also expedite the healing process after a microneedling treatment. Essentially, using PRP during microneedling can take microneedling up a notch and lead to more dramatic results.
Benefits of PRP with Microneedling
The greatest benefit of PRP with microneedling is its ability to heal damaged skin. It’s safe and effective because it triggers your body to heal itself by producing more collagen, without placing any foreign substances in your body.
Microneedling with PRP Consultations Available
PRP with microneedling is also minimally invasive so there is no surgery involved and you don’t have to worry about any downtime. While you’ll be asked to avoid makeup, tanning, and exercise for a few days after treatment, you’ll be able to return to work and your daily responsibilities right away.
Good Candidates for PRP with Microneedling
PRP with microneedling is a very versatile treatment as it can rejuvenate and improve a variety of conditions. If you are bothered by fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, age spots, or melasma, it may be a great option for you. However, we do not recommend this treatment if you have deep lines and wrinkles, are pregnant or breastfeeding, or have used Accutane within the last 3 months.
I was always afraid to get any kind of procedure done on my face, but then the staff educated me on the SkinPen which is a microneedling device. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it didn’t hurt like I thought it would! A few days later my skin was a lot smoother and felt healthier. I will be going back for my second treatment soon!
