What is PRP?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is derived from the patient’s own blood using a multi-step process:
- A small sample of blood is collected from the patient
- The sample is then spun through a sterile centrifuge, separating it into its individual components
- During this process, the plasma, or liquid portion of the blood, is infused with platelets, which contain beneficial growth factors, creating PRP
- The PRP is extracted from the rest of the blood sample
How Does PRP Work with Micro-Needling?
Although PRP and micro-needling are effective standalone treatments, they are often combined for optimal skin rejuvenation results. The micro-needling process involves a handheld tool with several tiny needles at the tip that is moved over the skin, gently penetrating the surface at a specific depth to trigger what is known as Collagen Induction Therapy. By stimulating fresh, new collagen production beneath the surface, skin can regain strength and structure. Micro-Needling also opens up the skin, allowing better penetration of skincare products and the topical application of PRP.
Once the PRP is absorbed into the skin, the growth factors aid in the generation of new tissues and have multiple benefits for the skin, including:
- Smoothing and tightening visible signs of aging
- Reducing the appearance of skin imperfections
- Restoring a more youthful by increasing circulation
What are the Benefits of PRP?
As this treatment option is derived from your body’s natural resources, it is completely biocompatible and carries less risk of adverse reactions than other skin rejuvenation treatments. It is completely non-surgical, safe and effective for both women and men, and most patients are able to return to work and normal activities with only minor pinkness or flushing from the Collagen Induction Therapy process.
Men and women with a variety of skin concerns can see visible results from micro-needling and PRP, but the best way to find out if this is the most beneficial treatment for you and how many treatment sessions you may need to achieve your desired aesthetic is to schedule a consultation.
