Microneedling with PRP is a safe procedure to boost the body’s natural healing process and improve the appearance of the skin. It can help reduce wrinkles, even out the skin tone, improve acne scars, and create a smoother, firmer skin texture with a healthier glow.
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, a concentration made from a small sample of the patient’s own blood which contains special growth factors that boost healing. During the procedure, we use tiny needles to prick the skin, then apply PRP to encourage increased collagen production and cell reproduction. The PRP speeds up healing from the microneedling and stimulates skin renewal, producing better results than from microneedling alone. Since the treatment uses the patient’s own blood, it is usually very safe as long as it’s done by a qualified clinician.
Some patients need multiple treatments to see results from microneedling with PRP, especially if they wish to treat larger scars or aging skin. In the first few days following treatment, you may experience some soreness, tenderness, or mild bruising, but recovery tends to be quick. Results appear gradually and begin to appear a few weeks after the procedure. To find out if microneedling is a good option for your body and expectations, make an appointment with us today.
