Microneedling with PRP is the same as traditional microneedling, except at the beginning of the treatment your blood is drawn, and at the end of the treatment your own platelet-rich plasma is applied to your face.
After blood is drawn from your arm by a licensed practitioner, it is placed in a centrifuge machine for preparing the PRP. The centrifuge uses centrifugal force to separate the blood into components based on their weight. The heaviest that rest at the bottom are the red blood cells. The rest is platelet-rich plasma, which is not red in color. These activated platelets are then applied directly to your face after microneedling. The microneedling allows the PRP to penetrate deeper into the skin, releasing growth factors that stimulate your body’s natural reparative cells.
Microneedling with PRP can enhance collagen and elastin production in deeper skin levels and effectively treats acne scars, surgical scars, wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, sun spots, the appearance of large pores, and uneven skin texture.
