What is Microneedling with PRP?
Microneedling with PRP or simply Microneedling, is a cosmetic treatment that is designed to stimulate the collagen production. This is done by rolling fine needles over the skin while applying platelets or PRP. The platelets is one of the components of blood, so the addition of the PRP from the blood produced by Microneedling makes the treatment much more effective. The liquid component of the blood is plasma which is basically concentrated platelets, is the PRP which stands for Platelet Rich Plasma.
Microneedling with PRP Treatment Procedure
The first step to Microneedling with PRP is that the practitioner with take a sample of your blood and put your blood in a centrifuge machine that separates the red and white blood cells to create a pure plasma rich platelet which stimulates the body’s natural collagen. Once the blood has gone through the centrifuge machine it is time to prepare the skin for treatments. To reduce discomfort as a bunch of tiny needles puncture the skin, a numbing agent is applied and left on the skin for 45 to 60 minutes. Once the skin is numb, the needling tool is applied to the desired areas. Once the microneedling process is completed, the PRP is applied to the skin. The solution is dripped and messaged back into the skin, speeding up recovery and improving the health of the skin. After Microneedling with PRP, the skin will be red, tender, and have some tightness for 2 to 3 days. It is recommended that you stay out of the sun for those first few days and make sure to wear sunscreen when going outside.
