Microneedling uses needles to rejuvenate the skin. Combining Microneedling with PRP can promote a more conspicuous rejuvenation experience with a quicker healing time.Book Now
Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation procedure that uses needle penetration to creates dermal injury. The hundreds of microscopic needle punctures stimulate wound repair and promote neocollagenesis, the production of collagen. During this process, Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is injected into the microscopic needle pricks as an adjunct to regular Microneedling. PRP application with Microneedling can speed the healing process while allowing for deeper absorption and more even distribution of the PRP.
Why Microneedling with PRP?
Combining Microneedling with PRP can promote a more conspicuous rejuvenation experience with a quicker healing time. The procedure is still non-invasive and delivers amazing results without injecting any foreign substances into your body. Microneedling with PRP provides a deeper treatment for patients struggling with acne, age spots, fine wrinkles, thinning skin, large pores, uneven skin texture, stretch marks, and hair loss.
Benefits And Risks
Microneedling offers the same benefits of fractional lasers but is much more cost- and time-efficient. The small wounds caused by Microneedling will allow your skin to continuously improve and heal, strengthening your epidermis overtime. Side effects for this procedure are very uncommon, allowing you to not have to worry while being provided with glowing results.
There are still some risks involved with Microneedling; however, they are much lower and less common than other aggressive skin treatments. When administered incorrectly, Microneedling may pose minor health risks. In order to avoid these complications, contact the clinicians at Elume Medspa to discuss your eligibility of receiving Microneedling with PRP.
Who Should Avoid Microneedling?
If you suffer from skin conditions such as deep scars, eczema, rosacea or similar conditions, Microneedling may not be advised as it may lead to further irritation. It is also very important to take proper precautions if you have an autoimmune disorder or untreated diabetes, or if you have bleeding complications. If you are pregnant or have gone skin radiation, you should wait at least 12 months before receiving treatment.
Microneedling With PRP Procedure
The procedure begins with the clinician cleaning the targeted areas of skin and applying a local anesthetic to it. The Microneedling procedure should last upwards of 30 minutes depending on the size of the targeted area as well as the amount of units required. A professional needling device known as a Collagen P.I.N is used to produce new layers of collagen and elastin. The PRP solution, prepared from a small sample of your blood, is then massaged into the treatment area for effective penetration. After the treatment is completed, the physician will gently rub a smoothing serum to the area in order to minimize inflammation. Daily activities can be immediately resumed after the procedure is completed, so long is there is no discomfort following the treatment.
