What About Microneedling with PRP?
While traditional microneedling can improve cellular turnover and treat deep complexion issues, microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can do all that and tackle skin sagging.
Microneedling with PRP incorporates the power of your platelets, which play essential roles in reinvigorating sluggish cellular activity. The solution that’s used in a microneedling treatment consists of your platelets plus a special growth-activating serum. The solution is added to a microneedling device and then injected deep into the subdermal layer for maximum effect.
Microneedling with PRP not only helps accelerate cellular turnover; it can also tighten and tone sagging skin, as well as improve skin elasticity, firmness, and texture.
Am I a Good Candidate for Microneedling?
You’re a good candidate for microneedling treatments if you have a variety of skin concerns like:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Acne and trauma scarring
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Sun damage and age spots
- Skin laxity issues
- And more
Microneedling treatments typically take about 45 minutes per session. Before your treatment, a numbing cream or ice will be applied to the surface of your skin to numb the area. This can help keep you comfortable throughout your session.
Once your microneedling session is done, your skin may feel sensitive and tender to the touch. You may also see some mild swelling, redness, and slight bleeding. These side effects usually go away within a week of your microneedling session.
