What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure which involves pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles. The small wounds cause your body to make more collagen and elastin, which heal your skin and help you look younger. You might also hear it called collagen induction therapy. During this procedure we infuse those small wounds with peptides and growth factors which can amplify your bodys ability to stimulate collagen thus providing incredible results.
What is microneedling with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)?
Similar to the above treatment, however it begins with a blood draw to create your own growth factors from your platelets (which are one of the components of blood). A practitioner will take a blood sample and then use a spinning tool called a centrifuge to separate the PRP from the rest of the blood. PRP contains proteins, including growth factors and cytokines. These proteins help skin tissue repair itself. The addition of PRP from the blood may make microneedling more effective. Once your PRP is ready the traditional Microneedling procedure will resume and the PRP will be infused into the small wounds to encourage collagen production and cell reproduction.
People may consider having Microneedling or Microneedling with PRP if they want to treat certain marks or blemishes on the body or face for the following cosmetic reasons.
- acne scars
- surgical scars
- wrinkles and fine lines
- sun damage
- large pores
- uneven skin texture
The addition of PRP to microneedling may speed up the healing process and stimulate skin renewal, potentially producing better results than microneedling alone.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What types of results can I expect?
Your skin will become smoother and more radiant in a week. Your pore sizes will reduce and any stretch marks or acne scars will be reduced.
How does it work?
A device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments depends on the severity of your skin condition. Many people see noticeable improvements after 1-4 treatments.
Does it hurt?
If you have sensitive skin, you can apply a numbing cream to minimize pain during the treatment.
How often can I repeat the procedure?
You can perform a new treatment safely every 4-6 weeks.
What can I expect following the treatment?
You will experience some redness and mild swelling for 2-4 days. You may even notice slight bruising or several tiny blood spots that will disappear in 24-48 hours. Do not use a chemical peel, put on makeup or spend time in the sun for several days after your treatment. This allows your skin to heal completely. A complete list of post care directions will be provided to you.
