How Does Microneedling with PRP Work? A Simple Guide
Your provider will draw a small amount of blood from your body and spin the blood at a high speed to separate its components. Afterward, your provider will apply a topical anesthetic to your face to numb your face. A microneedling pen or derma-roller will be used to create tiny holes or micro-injuries in your skin.
The PRP will be massaged onto the skin so it can penetrate into the skin for a better rejuvenating effect. The injuries act as channels for the PRP to easily get into the skin and also stimulate your body’s natural healing response, which increases collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin.
PRP contains influential growth factors that help to rejuvenate the skin from the inside out. The combination of micro-needling and PRP further promotes facial rejuvenation and minimizes the appearance of facial wrinkles and scars, which smoothens your face and makes your face look younger.
The treatment typically takes less than two hours. You don’t need any downtime and you can resume your normal activities immediately after your treatment.
