Microneedling is becoming very popular since it does not involve much downtown if any. Many people come on their lunch and return to work the same day. They simply look like they have a sunburn.
But, combining it with your body’s own PRP (platelet rich plasma) the regenerative benefits are nothing short of amazing. Plus, it last 12 months to 24 months! Most people get between 3 – 9 treatments.
There are numerous studies that prove the efficacy of microneedling along. Combining microneedling with PRP amplifies the results and speeds skin rejuvenation and recovery. This is because PRP uses stem cell science to enhance healing through its high concentration of growth factors. From orthopedics to aesthetics, PRP is transforming wound healing.
How does it work? When used in conjunction with microneedling, the tiny perforations created during the treatment deliver the platelet rich plasma to the deeper layers of the skin. This stimulates the growth of new, healthy skin cells which help smooth skin, improves skin tone, helps generate collagen and elasticity.
How is PRP obtained? Platelet rich plasma comes from your own blood. Your provider will draw your blood and place it in an automated processing machine called a centrifuge. After this processing, the plasma is separated which is the clear part.
How does the PRP get into the skin? After applying numbing gel to your face, your provider will use a device to make tiny perforations in the skin. New Vitality Centers uses the SkinPen which is the only FDA cleared microneedling device. The SkinPen is a tool that uses sharp needles to create tiny holes in your skin. In response to these micro-injuries, your body produces collagen and elastin to heal the wound naturally. SkinPen does not use chemicals, heat, or toxins to burn or remove layers of your skin or paralyze your facial muscles.
