PRP and Microneedling: A Winning Combo That Can Naturally Rejuvenate Your Skin

If your facial skin has begun to show signs of aging, fear not - all hope is not lost. Thanks to an advanced procedure that combines microneedling with PRP therapy, you can take years off your appearance with just a few treatments.

The expert team at Plateroti Dermatology in Templeton, California, knows how to put these two procedures to work for your best benefit. Whether your skin is dull, you have general scarring, or you just need some rejuvenation, here’s how this treatment can benefit your appearance.

What is microneedling?

A professional skin care regimen can work wonders to keep your skin young, vibrant, and glowing, but eventually, enough time passes that topical treatments are no longer enough because your collagen production has slowed down. Collagen is an essential skin building block that helps give your skin substance and strength. Without it, your skin will begin to collapse and look much more aged.

Micro-needling uses a series of tiny needles to cause actual small injuries to your skin. These micro-injuries then stimulate your body’s natural collagen production. The new skin that emerges is younger, smoother, stronger, and more vibrant, giving your face that youthful glow you crave.

What is PRP therapy?

PRP therapy stands for platelet-rich plasma therapy. Platelets are a type of blood cell that help repair damaged areas of your body by regenerating new tissue that is young and strong. This is especially effective at the site of injuries to your body and for general rejuvenation of your skin. 

To produce PRP, the medical team will draw your blood and insert it into a centrifuge, where gravity helps separate the platelets from the rest of the blood. These platelets are then injected into more blood, thus increasing the concentration of platelets. This new super-healing blood can then be injected into the body wherever rejuvenation is desired, and it will help accelerate the body’s natural healing process.

What are the benefits of microneedling and PRP?

When PRP is used along with microneedling, the tiny holes allow the PRP to travel deeper into the skin than it would otherwise be able to do, which is a benefit to the healing process. You should start seeing results soon after your microneedling and PRP appointment, and the texture and quality of your skin should continue to improve for about six months after each treatment as your body’s collagen production increases. Wrinkles will be smoothed out, firmness will improve, and your skin will have a fresh glow.

Microneedling with PRP therapy can work wonders for your skin. Although it is most often done on the face, it also works well on the neck, arms, back, and more. Even if you’re skeptical that this treatment can live up to its claims, Plateroti Dermatology in Templeton wants to talk to you. It doesn’t hurt to call for an appointment or book one online. You might just be surprised and come home with a new youthful glow!
