Combining PRP with Microneedling for Your Best Skin Ever
By now, you’ve probably heard about microneedling and the magic it can work on your complexion – but if not, you’ve come to the right place. We’re doing a deep dive into microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a powerhouse pairing that’s become the go-to treatment for celebrities, beauty influencers, and just about anybody and everybody that wants to beautify their skin.
Here’s everything you need to know about the skin rejuvenation treatment that has everyone talking: microneedling treatments with PRP.
Microneedling and PRP: A Treatment Match Made in Skin Care Heaven
If you’re constantly in pursuit of perfect skin, you aren’t alone. But instead of spending your monthly self-care budget on drugstore face creams and at-home treatments, what if you invested in a professional procedure that you actually know will work?
A professional microneedling procedure can uncover the skin you’ve always wanted, beautifully clear, smooth, and glowing. And even though there are plenty of at-home microneedling kits that swear they’ll give you spa-quality skin, nothing can measure up to the microneedling results a trained aesthetician can provide.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling (sometimes called collagen induction therapy) uses a micro-pen device containing microscopic needles to treat the surface of the skin. Each needle is narrower than a single hair, and with the assistance of light numbing cream, makes for a completely comfortable treatment experience. Even if you can’t stand needles, these are so tiny that you won’t sweat for a second.
Your provider gently applies the device to your face to create invisible “micro-injuries,” which your body takes as the sign to rev up elastin and collagen production. These tiny channels are also an ideal route for deep absorption of skincare products, maximizing the effects of serums, moisturizers, and more.
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?
Platelet-rich plasma, otherwise known as PRP, might sound like some sort of exotic ingredient, but it’s actually something that you already have in your own body. Your blood contains plasma, which is rich in platelets and contains a high concentration of growth factors.
The Benefits of Microneedling with PRP
PRP and microneedling can each work wonders on your biggest skin frustrations, but together, they are a combined treatment that will elevate your complexion to star status.
Here’s how microneedling with PRP works: we’ve talked about how microneedling sets your skin up with invisible “channels” that make it possible for your skin to absorb products on a deeper level, right? Well, consider PRP the ultimate skincare serum, made expressly for your skin and your skin only.
PRP for skin treatments is a concept that comes from stem cell science, enhancing your body’s natural ability to heal and restore itself. Even the world’s most expensive and exclusive serums can’t match the rapid results and dramatic difference after using PRP. When used in conjunction with professional microneedling, PRP significantly smooths your skin and erases scar tissue, basically giving you the baby-soft skin you thought you’d never see again.
Microneedling with PRP can be an ideal treatment option if you want to:
- Reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Shrink your pores
- Fade acne scarring, burn scars, and stretch marks
- Improve the noticeability of hyperpigmentation and sunspots
- Tighten your skin
- Have a youthful glow
- Confidently go makeup-free
Microneedling for Men
If you’re a guy that’s ever wondered how your favorite male celebrities and sports stars always seem to have flawless skin, here’s a little secret: they’re not skipping out on professional skin care.
Microneedling, PRP, and other professional treatments aren’t just for the ladies; in fact, guys can score the same winning results. Quit wasting your cash on cheap products and care for your skin like the pros do: with microneedling and PRP.
PRP with Microneedling: What to Expect During the Procedure
The microneedling and PRP procedure is non-invasive and an excellent fit for many different skin types – it’s so safe that even our pregnant or breastfeeding guests can get it!
Your provider will draw a tiny blood sample and then place it in the processing machine, where the plasma will be separated. After applying a light numbing cream to the treatment area, they will begin the microneedling procedure. Once that part of the treatment is complete, the PRP will be applied to your skin, along with any additional products to support your skincare goals. You’ll walk out with a noticeable glow, and your results will only continue to intensify over the next several weeks.
You can expect your appointment to take anywhere from 45 to 60 minutes, making it the perfect option for a quick lunch break or after-work appointment.
The Focal Point Microneedling Method – and Why It Matters
