Adding PRP to Microneedling
Microneedling and PRP therapy have gained a lot of popularity separately over the past few years; but have you tried them together? When the two are combined, their individual benefits are accelerated for twice the skin rejuvenation. The results? A younger, glowing complexion that is firm with an even texture.
PRP & Microneedling Procedure
Platelet-rich plasma therapy, or PRP therapy in Beverly Hills, is a treatment used to rejuvenate the skin using growth factors found in your own plasma. PRP therapy can help to address signs of aging in the face such as volume loss, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin texture, and scars for a more youthful-looking complexion.
To harvest the PRP, a few vials of your own blood will be taken, just as if you were in the lab for a blood test. Then, the blood will be spun in a centrifuge to separate the blood plasma from the platelets. The plasma rich platelets are then used topically during your microneedling session.
What are the Benefits of Doing Both?
Following treatment, you may experience mild redness at the treatment sites. Results are usually visible within a few weeks and will continue to improve for up to six months. The benefits of combining both treatments are:
- PRP reaches a deeper level of the skin using microneedling
- Regenerate’s tissue on multiple levels for a more dramatic result
- Promotes collagen production for thicker, firmer skin
- Stimulates the body’s repair process by using natural growth factors and creating “micro-injuries”
- Heals scars faster with a physical and topical healing methods
