Have you been searching for a way to rejuvenate your skin and combat the signs of aging? If so, microneedling with PRP is the answer you’ve been waiting for. This revolutionary treatment, offered at Pure Body Health, combines the skin-penetrating technique of microneedling with the healing properties of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to give you the youthful, glowing, and healthy skin you’ve always wanted. 

In this blog, we’ll discuss how PRP with microneedling works, its benefits, and why it’s a game changer for skincare enthusiasts.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves using a specialized device called Amiea Exceed Pen. This device has tiny needles that create microscopic punctures in the skin. 

These controlled injuries stimulate your body’s natural wound-healing process, producing collagen, elastin, and new skin cells. 

The treatment has been proven to improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles, and can even help with pigmentation issues such as melasma.

What Is PRP?

PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a component of your blood that contains a high concentration of platelets, growth factors, and other proteins crucial for healing and cell regeneration. During a PRP treatment, a small amount of your blood is drawn and put into a machine called a centrifuge, separating it into platelet-rich plasma.

At Pure Body Health, we use TruPRP from Magellan to harness the growth factors and stem cells in your blood. The platelet-rich plasma is then applied topically, contributing to the healing process and stimulating growth factors to encourage new skin cell production.

Key Takeaway

PRP with microneedling combines the natural healing and rejuvenating properties of platelet-rich plasma with the collagen and elastin-producing benefits of microneedling. The result is mproved skin texture, and a reduction in the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.

PRP With Microneedling: The Powerful Duo

When microneedling and PRP are combined, they create a synergistic effect that delivers powerful anti-aging and skin-rejuvenating results. Microneedling creates tiny channels in the skin, allowing the PRP to penetrate deep into the dermis, which magnifies the benefits of each treatment. Together, microneedling with PRP can:

  • Stimulate collagen and elastin production: This powerful combination boosts your skin’s natural repair mechanisms, promoting collagen and elastin production, which are essential for keeping the skin firm, plump, and youthful.
  • Reduce the appearance of scars: The treatment has been shown to reduce the appearance of acne scars, surgical scars, and other skin imperfections by promoting the growth of new, healthy skin cells and the breakdown of damaged cells.
  • Improve skin texture and tone: Microneedling with PRP can improve skin texture and even out skin tone by addressing issues like hyperpigmentation, melasma, and sun damage. 
  • Minimize fine lines and wrinkles: By increasing collagen production and promoting the regeneration of new skin cells, microneedling with PRP can help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Microneedling with PRP is a safe and effective treatment for individuals seeking to improve their skin’s appearance, texture, and overall health.

Is Microneedling Painful?

Microneedling is generally well-tolerated by most patients and can be done with minimal discomfort. To minimize any potential discomfort, a topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment area prior to the procedure.

Is PRP and Vampire Facial the Same?

Essentially, yes. Microneedling, with the addition of PRP, was coined ‘vampire facial’ by Kim Kardashian when she received the treatment back in 2013.

How Long Does It Take To Recover From Microneedling With PRP?

Most patients experience redness and mild swelling in the treatment area after the procedure, but this usually subsides within a day or two. You should be able to resume your normal activities immediately after the treatment, although it is recommended that you avoid direct sun exposure and tanning beds for a few days. You may have small scabs and flaking skin on the face and neck, but this should clear up within a week. It is important that you do not itch, rub or pick at your face during this stage of healing.

Is Microneedling With PRP Worth It?

Yes! Microneedling with PRP has been proven to be an effective treatment for improving skin texture, reducing the appearance of scars and wrinkles, and addressing pigmentation issues. Its results are long-lasting and can help you achieve the youthful, glowing complexion you desire.
