Microneedling vs. Microneedling with PRP

August 13, 2018

Countless patients enjoy many of Microneedling’s age-diminishing benefits, including thickening the skin, filling deep wrinkles, smoothing out acne scars, and erasing stretch marks. During the microneedling procedure, thousands of microscopic, painless injuries are applied via a pen or roller, calling upon the body’s own collagen-filled healing system to come out in full force, resulting in a noticeably youthful complexion that increases with passing months. And now, patients are thrilled with forceful boosts of microneedling with PRP, observing faster, longer-lasting, more powerful results.

What is Different about Microneedling with PRP?

In opting for a PRP facial, a quick blood draw will be performed while your face is numbing for the microneedling procedure.  Your blood is then spun in a centrifuge, separating out the platelets, which are spun once more to bring about the platelet-rich plasma, a translucent-looking concoction. The platelets are then massaged into the face.

Benefits of PRP

The thousands of tiny injuries create generative channels for healing-rich PRP to sink into the skin and begin its work.  In numerous medical studies, PRP has been shown to speed healing, reverse hair loss, and act similarly to stem cells, promoting cell growth to both thicken and tighten the skin.  

Final Thoughts

Microneedling by itself is an authoritative anti-aging regimen, but using microneedling in combination with PRP is the most potent and effective way to provoke a more youthful appearance. With little to no downtime and superior results, microneedling with PRP is an effortless and more competent way to count back the years.
