Microneedling With PRP
in Scottsdale, AZ
Over time, your tissues begin to break down, causing aesthetic concerns like the presence of wrinkles, fine lines, and uneven skin texture. While this can be frustrating, various cosmetic treatments can rejuvenate the quality of your skin. And one of the most effective of these treatments is microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
Microneedling with PRP combines two of the most revolutionary skin rejuvenation therapies to help you achieve results that you can see and feel. This nonsurgical treatment can be used safely on the face and body.
What Should You Expect With PRP Microneedling?
During this appointment, you will discuss your cosmetic concerns, and your skincare specialist will be able to evaluate your condition to develop a treatment plan just for you. You will also be able to ask any questions you may have about the treatment.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure in which dozens of tiny needles puncture the skin to create micro-injuries. These needles can penetrate anywhere from .25 mm to three mm. This process causes cellular regrowth in the body and stimulates collagen and elastin production. Microneedling jump-starts the body into healing itself so that you can enjoy smoother, softer, more blemish-free skin.
Platelet-rich plasma is naturally found in the blood. This plasma contains growth factors to help your cells heal quicker and stronger than they would without the PRP. PRP also helps promote the regeneration process of soft tissues.
Before the microneedling portion of your treatment, blood will be drawn from your body, and the platelet-rich plasma in your blood will be isolated. During your microneedling treatment, the isolated PRP will be injected into your skin to help you heal more fully from the micro-injuries. This PRP also enhances the production of collagen and elastin in the deeper layers so that you can achieve longer-lasting results.
