24 Aug Benefits of Microneedling with PRP
RealSelf.com has called microneedling the hottest skin care trend, and complementing it with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections maximizes the results. Spectrum Dermatology is a leading specialist in microneedling with PRP, and the combined procedures have helped the clinic to rank as Top Doc for 2017 and 2018.
How Microneedling Works
Microneedling works by using tiny needles that create hundreds of microscopic punctures in the top layer of skin. These Lilliputian wounds are painless and stimulate the body’s organic healing process. This leads to increased cell turnover rates and a collagen and elastin boost. PRP uses the client’s own blood, concentrates the platelets, and injects them directly back into the treated areas. PRP optimizes the body’s healing process, ensuring the microneedling is even more effective, and that healing results are faster.
Adding PRP To Microneedling Treatment
Microneedling with PRP can treat a number of skin care complaints. The most common treatment is for fine lines and wrinkles. The combined procedure can reduce the visibility of existing wrinkles and even prevent new ones from forming, thanks to the generation of new skin cells. Microneedling with PRP comes with virtually no downtime.
The procedures are also very effective in treating scar tissue. A 2009 study revealed that almost every client treating acne scars with microneedling noticed an improvement in the scars. In fact, another study found that microneedling was equally as effective as the much more expensive fractional laser treatments that often come with downtime.
Sun damage and hyperpigmentation can also be treated with microneedling with PRP. According to a study in 2015, microneedling is effective for treating brown facial pigmentation caused by sun damage. Some patients, such as beauty expert Rachel Zoldan, reports that sun damage completely disappears from view after just a few microneedling sessions.
