Are you in the battle against scars, fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, acne scarring, and aging in general? If you are, you are definitely not alone. The majority of adults are engaged in this battle, men and women alike. People are trying everything from sunscreen and drugstore anti-aging products to essential oils and other DIY home remedies to try to stay young and healthy-looking. One treatment that we recommend to our clients is called microneedling, and this treatment can be enhanced with the use of platelet-rich plasma, or PRP.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a treatment that stimulates the production of the skin’s own collagen and elastin. It does this through the use of a hand-held device that is applied to your skin by a highly trained professional. This device contains a number of microneedles that will prick your skin at a controlled depth to create tiny, controlled skin injuries. After this, your body will take over in order to heal your skin and will produce new collagen and elastin to heal and fill in those spots. Microneedling alone can treat issues such as acne scars, surgical scars, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, large pores, and uneven skin texture. After a treatment, most patients see redness in the area for 2 to 4 days, and then the redness subsides leaving behind skin that glows and looks more refreshed and smooth. Because new collagen and elastin are being produced, you will notice improvements for the next few weeks and up to 6 months. Moderate acne scarring will usually require 3 to 4 treatments to achieve the best results.
What Are the Benefits of Using PRP with Microneedling?
In a PRP treatment, your physician will draw blood from your arm and spin it in a centrifuge machine to separate out the blood platelets from the plasma. The platelets in the blood contain proteins and other growth factors that will stimulate collagen production. During the treatment, the platelet-rich liquid will be topically applied to your face.
The main benefit of using the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment with microneedling is that the use of PRP magnifies the results of microneedling alone. Patients get more satisfying results in less time because the proteins and the growth factors that the PRP contains revs up collagen and elastin production. In a 2019 review of PRP microneedling for acne scars, studies showed that using PRP with microneedling improved scars by 62.20%.
So, the use of PRP with microneedling will magnify the results of microneedling alone and
- Reduce broken capillaries and spider veins
- Reduce the appearance of large pores
- Reduce the appearance of acne scars
- Even out skin tone
- Lighten sunspots
- Give a firmer and smoother texture
- Diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles
In other words, microneedling with PRP will help you win the anti-aging battle and help you to look and feel your absolute best!
