How Microneedling Works
Microneedling is a proven treatment that has been used for years to achieve amazing results. This treatment uses a pen-like device that contains many fine medical-grade needles. When this pen is moved over your skin, it leaves behind microscopic channels. But don’t worry, these channels are so small that you can even see them with the human eye. The purpose of these channels is to prompt the body to start the healing process—and that’s where the power of this treatment comes from.
Microneedling can help your body to begin producing more collagen, which is an important building block of healthy skin. This treatment also breaks down old collagen that is the cause of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles while it encourages your skin to create new cells and increase blood circulation.
How PRP Works
PRP therapy is another treatment that has been used for years to help heal the body in different ways. When it comes to facial rejuvenation, PRP therapy can completely transform your skin. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is the part of your blood that is responsible for helping to the heal body. PRP contains white bloods cells, stems cells, and proteins called growth factors. The procedure requires nothing more than a routine blood draw. After separating your PRP from the rest of your blood through the use of a centrifuge, we will create a serum of concentrated PRP that can be used during the microneedling treatment.
Combining the Two
The PRP serum is used as a topical lubricant during the microneedling treatment. This way, as the dermapen creates channels in your skin, the PRP serum will be able use those channels to travel deep into your skin. This is a minimally-invasive and non-surgical treatment. There is no down time and no ill side effects. You may experience some redness and tenderness, but that should fade quickly.
