One of the most popular ways to keep skin looking young and healthy is through microneedling with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). Microneedling is a popular choice for patients who want to achieve smoother, softer skin without the downtime of ablative lasers. When performed with PRP, this type of treatment is enhanced by delivering your own blood-derived growth factors for healthy cell creation, which increases collagen production.
The automated micro-needling is an innovation in aesthetics that treats the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin’s texture, tone and color. SkinPen® Precision by Bellus Medical, the only Class II, FDA Cleared Microneedling Device, is used. A sterile cartridge containing 12 tiny micro-points is attached to the SkinPen®. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of saline solution to your skin and select the appropriate treatment setting based on your unique needs. The SkinPen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding until the entire treatment area has been covered. In doing this, the microneedling treatment with PRP will cause a release of at least eight essential natural growth factors from your own body. The result is the natural and healthy production of new collagen and elastin, which creates a youthful appearance.
HOW DOES THE PRP (PLATELET-RICH PLASMA) WORK?
The PRP is obtained by drawing a small amount of blood and placing it in a centrifuge to separate out the PRP. The PRP is then applied topically during the microneedling treatment; it may also be injected to accelerate collagen production. PRP has been used for years to heal wounds and for other purposes. Today, PRP therapies are also available for facial rejuvenation and other areas of aesthetic medicine.
