During the Microneedling process, Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is used in addition to regular the Microneedling procedure. PRP application with Microneedling can speed the healing process while allowing for deeper absorption and a more even distribution of the PRP.
Why Microneedling with PRP?
Combining Microneedling with PRP can provide more anti-aging benefits and promote quicker healing times. 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 & 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 breastfeeding it is not advised to receive this treatment.
Microneedling With PRP Procedure
The procedure begins with cleaning the targeted areas of skin and an application of a local anesthetic. The Microneedling procedure lasts about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treated area. A professional needling device known as a Collagen P.I.N is used to promote new collagen and elastin production. The PRP solution, prepared from a small sample of your blood, is then applied to the treatment area for effective penetration. Most daily activities can be immediately resumed after the procedure is completed, so long is there is no discomfort following the treatment.
