PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Microneedling is a non-surgical procedure for rejuvenating the skin. With this treatment patients receive infusion of their own blood components, PRP through multiple tiny openings made with a special device.
A tube of the blood is drawn and then processed to harvest PRP with growth factors. A thin layer a numbing cream is applied to the face to ensure comfort during the procedure. The PRP is applied topically followed by micro-needling of the skin with a microneedling device, a process in which the skin is perforated with near microscopic holes, which allows for a transdermal delivery of the PRP. The growth factors in the PRP re-energize cells to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving the skin's tone and texture. Following the micro-needling, a second layer of PRP is applied allowing for maximum benefit.
Many skin issues can be improved with PRP microneedling:
Skin texture, color and tone inconsistencies
Broken capillaries and large pores
Scars, such as acne, burn or surgical scars
Aging and skin discoloration resulting from sun damage
Fine wrinkles and skin thinning.
The treatment can be repeated three times over the course of several months. Patients may choose to repeat this type of skin rejuvenation from time to time in order to maintain ideal skin health.
