Microneedling with PRP

How Is Microneedling with PRP Done?

Microneedling Braselton GA | Loganville GA | Snellville GAThis therapy is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment with quick recovery time and is designed to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. The treatment
actually involves the use of two procedures, microneedling and PRP (platelet rich plasma) done consecutively.

How does microneedling work?

The first procedure is called microneedling. A small handheld, automatic device that contains tiny micro-needles is passed over the skin creating tiny micro-wounds, or channels, on the skin. During the body’s natural wound-healing process of these channels, collagen and elastin are automatically produced.

How does PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) work?

PRP The second procedure is called PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). Platelet Rich Plasma is produced from an individual’s own blood. After a blood sample is obtained from a patient, the blood is put into a centrifuge, which is a tool that separates the PRP from the blood. The blood is spun for approximately 15 minutes.

PRP contains highly concentrated amounts of natural growth factors and other cytokines that promote the regeneration process of soft tissues. The PRP is applied directly to the channels that were created from the microneedling to further stimulate the natural healing process and the creation of collagen. Utilization of PRP during microneedling increases tissue response 5 times more versus microneedling alone.

What Is Recovery Like After Microneedling With PRP?

After the treatment, your skin will be slightly pink and feel slightly sunburned. For most people, your skin will completely recover in 24-72 hours. Your body’s collagen production usually takes about 4-8 weeks, so you will continue to see improvements over this time.
