Combining PRP with microneedling in Charlotte
Dermatologists love microneedling as a skin rejuvenation treatment and combining it with a PRP facial makes it one of the most effective treatments for minimizing fine lines, removing facial scars, and boosting a youthful appearance.
How does microneedling with PRP work?
Microneedling with PRP uses the collagen stimulating therapy of microneedling and the capacity of your blood’s platelets to regenerate skin cells. Our platelets also have the unique ability to stimulate collagen and elastin production; which helps to repair skin issues as varied as uneven skin tone, wrinkles, fine lines, a dull complexion, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars.
To collect PRP, a certified staff member for your dermatologist will draw blood in a test tube and then place it in a centrifuge. This will separate the platelet rich plasma from red blood cells, growth factors and platelets are concentrated in the plasma. Your dermatologist then applies the plasma to the surface of or injects it back into the skin. Then your dermatologist uses a microneedling device to create tiny skin punctures within the skin. This promotes the production of collagen to heal the puncture wounds. Your dermatologist understands that combining PRP therapy with microneedling will provide visible results in a short time period. The results are so astounding that the procedure is reputed to be one of the most popular skin treatments.
Why do we need PRP?
The goal when dealing with aging skin is to counteract the breakdown of collagen. When collagen breaks down, the signs of aging show:
- The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- A loss of volume and facial contour
- Our skin structure weakens; and it loses elasticity and firmness, causing deep wrinkles
Introducing the growth factors present in platelets repairs damaged cells, stimulates the growth of collagen to renew itself. This regeneration of collagen results in tight, evenly toned, and smooth skin.
