Microneedling is a skin resurfacing treatment that naturally reduces lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Your PrudentMD specialist offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) with microneedling, using platelets from your own blood to enhance new cell generation. These two treatments combined offer dramatic anti-aging results.
The benefits you can expect when choosing microneedling with PRP at PrudentMD include:
Microneedling with PRP is highly effective and safe for all skin colors and types. Your specialist might use it on your face or other areas of your body. It reduces the loss of collagen and elastin that often begins after 30. And microneedling with PRP produces no heat.
Your PrudentMD specialist will determine if you’re a candidate for microneedling with PRP or other aesthetic treatments. They will review your medical history, discuss your desired outcome with you, and examine your skin in the areas you’re concerned about. They’ll let you know what to expect during the procedure and tailor a cosmetic treatment that offers exceptional results.
During microneedling with PRP, you relax in a comfortable, padded treatment table. Your PrudentMD specialist takes a blood sample from your arm and spins it in a centrifuge. This separates the cells and plasma from the rest of your blood.
They numb the treatment area and apply a hand-held device that contains tiny needles to your skin. It makes micro, invisible punctures in the treated skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Your specialist then applies the PRP to the treatment area, where it seeps into the targeted tissues to enhance cell regeneration.
After microneedling with PRP, there are a few days of downtime where your skin looks like it has attained sun rash. You can resume your routine after a few days. You can expect redness, tenderness, or swelling for a short time. Keep treated skin clean and protect it from the sun during and after microneedling with PRP. Avoid wearing makeup or using skin care products until your specialist gives you the OK to do so. Use cold water and moisturize the skin often for a few weeks after the treatment.
Periodic microneedling treatments with PRP help you maintain long-lasting, younger-looking, revitalized skin. Your provider lets you know when to schedule your next microneedling treatment, along with other cosmetic procedures, if necessary.
