Benefits of Microneedling with PRP

The field of skin rejuvenation has undergone exciting new developments in recent years, allowing men and women to take advantage of treatments like microneedling and platelet rich plasma (PRP). When performed as a standalone procedure, microneedling provides exceptional results for skin rejuvenation. But did you know that PRP can enhance the results of microneedling? To learn more, read on to discover the benefits of having your next microneedling treatment performed with PRP.

How It Works

Before we explore the benefits, let’s take a look at how microneedling and PRP actually work. Microneedling uses a small device that is covered with short, tiny needles. When the device is rolled over the treatment area, it pokes holes into the skin’s surface, which stimulates collagen production as these micro-injuries heal. Gradually, this collagen will fill in fine lines, plump up skin, and produce a more youthful appearance.

PRP stimulates skin rejuvenation as well, but it does so in a much different way. PRP therapy uses your body’s own blood platelets to encourage the growth of new skin cells. Blood is made up of several components, including white and red blood cells, plasma, and platelets. After spinning the blood in a centrifuge, the platelets can be separated. Then, these platelets are re-injected into your skin in the treatment areas, which stimulates collagen and rejuvenates the skin.

Microneedling and PRP: The Perfect Match

When performed together, microneedling and PRP perfectly complement each other. Here’s why: New cell generation is dependent on growth factors for optimal results. Growth factors are special proteins that promote cell differentiation, and our blood platelets are full of them.

When microneedling creates tiny injuries on the skin’s surface, this makes it easy for platelets (full of growth factors) to enter the skin. If applied topically, growth factors would have no use, but when they’re able to penetrate deep into the skin, this is where rejuvenation begins.

As your skin heals from the microneedling treatment, you’ll have an abundance of growth factors working their magic in the meantime. This high concentration of growth factors will stimulate collagen, encourage the growth of skin cells, and produce a completely refreshed look.

While both of these treatments provide excellent results on their own, when combined, patients can take advantage of comprehensive skin rejuvenation. If you’ve been considering either microneedling or PRP, why not try both? Contact Aesthetx today at (408) 559-7177 to schedule a consultation, or to learn more about skin rejuvenation treatments.
