Don’t Be Afraid of PRP Microneedling

Ghosts, zombies, bumps in the night … there are plenty of things to be afraid of, but PRP microneedling isn’t one of them. This revolutionary aesthetic treatment can smooth and perfect your skin without surgery or downtime. If you’re looking for a minimally invasive option to improve your skin, ask us about PRP with microneedling.

What Is PRP?

PRP (platelet rich plasma) is a concentration of platelets and growth factors found within your own blood. A vial of blood is extracted and sent through a centrifuge to concentrate and separate the PRP from the rest of the blood. The PRP is packed with powerful growth factors (like FGF and PDGF) known for promoting cell growth, tissue repair, and collagen production. PRP has been a favorite treatment in sports medicine for years (helping athletes to heal quickly) and is one of the latest innovations in the world of aesthetic medicine. Use your body’s own healing response to rejuvenate and regenerate your skin from within.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling uses a state-of-the-art device to systematically create micro-perforations in the skin’s dermis. This stimulates the healing response to increase the collagen matrix and revitalize the skin. It is safe for all skin types and colors.

If the term microneedling scares you off, you should know that the treatment is touted as practically painless. The pricks made with the microneedling device are very small. They are simply opening up channels so the PRP can penetrate more deeply to promote your body’s healing response. Many patients find the treatment quite enjoyable, even pampering.

Why Should I Combine PRP with Microneedling?

PRP and microneedling are powerful treatments alone but, when paired together, results are even better. PRP with microneedling treatments are a celebrity favorite, and have been used by leading ladies Gwyneth Paltrow and Naomi Watts. Stunning results without downtime—what could be better for red carpet prep?

PRP with microneedling can:

  • Increase collagen production for tighter, smoother, firmer skin.
  • Treat fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Improve the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks.
  • Rejuvenate the skin without downtime.
