Micro-Needling with PRP
Microneedling with PRP has become very popular after being endorsed by celebrities such as Kim Kardashian. There is a reason celebrities love this treatment – it is a great way to rejuvenate the skin painlessly. Microneedling on its own works well to brighten and refresh the skin, and the addition of PRP, or platelet-rich-plasma, takes the treatment to the next level. Aging skin becomes tighter and smoother, acne scars can be reduced, and skin becomes brighter and younger-looking. At North Dallas Dermatology Associates, our board-certified dermatologists recommend microneedling with PRP for patients who want visible results without any pain or necessary recovery time.
What is PRP?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, has been in use for years to help speed recovery from sports injuries, as it helps wounds heal faster by encouraging the growth of new tissue. When used in conjunction with microneedling for cosmetic purposes, PRP helps to promote collagen production and kick-start the skin’s wound-healing capabilities, resulting in new, healthy skin tissue that looks smoother and younger.
PRP is created using the patient’s own blood, so there is no risk of an allergic or adverse reaction. A small vial of blood is drawn, then a centrifuge is used to separate the red blood cells from the platelets. The platelet-rich plasma is then refined and can be used on the skin. It is especially effective with microneedling because the tiny channels created by the micro-needles allow the PRP to reach the dermis, thus allowing for more efficient absorption and better results.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a popular treatment that involves multiple tiny needles creating microscopic channels in the skin, thus stimulating the skin’s natural healing abilities and collagen production. It is a good treatment for non-invasively reducing fine lines and wrinkles, fading dark spots, smoothing acne scars, and reducing stretch marks, among other uses. Talk to your NDDA dermatologist to see if you are a good candidate!
Microneedling is great for men and women looking for subtle, gradual rejuvenation. Side effects of microneedling may include redness or swelling, but these effects generally subside within three days. For some people, they fade within 24 hours.
