Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling with PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma)
Microneedling (Collagen Induction Therapy) is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a medical device that contains fine needles. These needles are used to create micro-punctures to the skin at various depths to create a controlled and safe skin injury. Each microscopic puncture creates a channel that stimulates neovascularization (new blood supply) and neocollagenesis (new collagen growth) to fill in these microscopic wounds. A variety of microneedling devices exist with needle depth ranging from 0.5 to 2 mm. Microneedling with the serum portion of your blood; Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) contains high level of growth factors and growth activating molecules to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is prepared by taking a small sample of the patient’s own blood, then separating platelets from the Red Blood Cells. Next, the PRP is collected and may be applied to the treated site during Microneedling procedure.
