What is a microneedling with PRP?

Microneedling with PRP is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure combining platelet rich plasma (PRP) with microneedling to penetrate the skin and have a greater impact on your face. Anyone who desires to add fullness and have your skin look tighter benefits from this with just one treatment.

The seasoned team at Eternal Hair and Esthetics offer this exclusive treatment to help with the following:

  • Tired or dull skin
  • Skin discoloration
  • Pigmentation issues
  • Rough skin
  • Facial wrinkles and fine lines

The PRP therapy enhances your skin’s appearance because of the development of elastin and collagen. This helps your skin to feel tighter and smoother, and breaks up existing scar tissue.

How is microneedling with PRP performed?

An experienced team member begins by drawing blood from your arm. Afterward, they put your blood in a centrifuge where the platelets are separated from the rest of your blood. Platelets are rich in growth factor proteins, which are crucial to healing injuries, recruiting stem cells, and promoting healthy blood flow. Platelets and your blood plasma are combined to create PRP.

The skilled team applies a numbing cream onto your face to eliminate any discomfort and ensure a pleasurable experience prior to treating your skin with microneedling. Microneedling utilizes a pen-like device, which has extremely tiny needles that perforate the surface of your skin. This is done to induce your body’s healing response, which helps promote an increase in collagen and elastin production.

The last step is to inject the PRP around the needle pinpricks created by microneedling so it can be easily absorbed into the skin.

What can I expect after microneedling with PRP?

The best part about microneedling with PRP is the small time investment that yields significant and immediate results. The treatment lasts less than one hour, requires no downtime, and you’ll see results instantaneously. Because your skin will be sensitive and need time to heal, it’s recommended that you stay out of the sun and wear sunblock as an extra precaution.

Some side effects you may experience include itching, swelling, or bruising, yet these conditions resolve themselves within two days.
