What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a skin rejuvenation therapy that is gaining popularity worldwide for its ability to heal the skin and aid in the generation of new tissues. It is currently utilized in several fields of medicine and is created through a multi-step process:
- A small sample of blood is taken from the patient and is spun through a sterile centrifuge
- The blood is separated into its individual components, infusing the plasma, or liquid portion of the blood, with more platelets than normal
- The platelets contain several growth factors that can aid in the generation of fresh, new skin cells and supportive facial structures.
How Does PRP Work with Micro-Needling?
During micro-needling, a pen-like device with several tiny needles in the tip is moved over the skin of the face and neck, stimulating a process known as Collagen Induction Therapy. The needles create microchannels in the skin that are nearly invisible to the naked eye, penetrating to a specific depth below the surface. Micro-needling can help tighten existing collagen as well as promote the production of new collagen for continuous skin improvements.
While micro-needling is an effective standalone facial treatment, there has been a high level of success when it is paired with PRP. The gentle exfoliation of micro-needling opens up the skin for optimal absorption, and when the PRP is applied to treated areas, it begins working underneath the skin to aid in the generation of new cells and tissues. PRP has also been shown to improve circulation underneath the skin, restoring a youthful glow to dull, aging skin.
Is There Any Recovery?
Some slight redness may develop in the skin after micro-needling, but this treatment is typically well-tolerated by patients with minimal to no downtime. As PRP uses your body’s own resources to heal the skin, it is typically easily recognized and processed. All relevant safety information will be discussed with you during your consultation.
