Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, has been around for quite some time—and those who are interested in skin rejuvenation may be familiar with its ability to treat imperfections. But there’s a new addition to the traditional microneedling procedure that may interest you, and it’s available at Tri Valley Health & Aesthetics! Read on to learn more about microneedling with PRP.
What Is PRP?
PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma, and can be used in conjunction with a microneedling treatment for optimal results. PRP is a concentration of platelets in your blood that are essential to healing your body’s wounds. When using PRP for rejuvenation, it helps stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. More collagen and elastin results in strong and healthy skin!
How Is PRP Used with Microneedling?
During a microneedling treatment, tiny needles puncture the skin and create micro-injuries. The purpose of creating these small injuries is to force your skin into “repair mode,” triggering it to produce more collagen and rejuvenate itself.
If you are receiving a microneedling treatment with PRP, a small blood sample will be taken from your body and the Platelet-Rich Plasma will be separated. After your microneedling procedure, the newly separated PRP will be applied to your skin, allowing it to reach the deepest layers of skin and heal the micro-injuries.
So, what’s the result of microneedling with PRP? After the procedure, your skin will have an overall improved appearance and naturally work to improve fine lines, acne scars, wrinkles and other imperfections. Using your own Platelet-Rich Plasma further improves these results, also helping provide you with plump, glowing skin.
