Microneedling and PRP: The All-Natural Winning Combination for Younger-Looking Skin

In the case of scarred, dry, or rough skin, microneedling is becoming increasingly popular. Cosmetic procedures, such as this, effectively treat wrinkles, stretch marks, scars, acne, and large pores. You may be able to achieve the clear, smooth, and healthy skin you’ve always wanted through microneedling combined with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). 

By activating your skin’s natural healing process, microneedling can boost your appearance. Dr. Jamie Mcmorris and Gifty Aidoo, FNP-C in Modesto, California, provide microneedling treatments to soften wrinkles, reduce hyperpigmentation, and heal scars. Microneedling and PRP treatments are offered together at the Aesthetic Lab to enhance results.

How does PRP work?

Red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets are components that make up your blood. Platelets contain growth factors and growth hormones that aid in healing your body when you’re injured. 

During PRP therapy, platelets are extracted from your blood and then injected back into the areas that need healing, which is how PRP treatments enhance your body’s natural ability to heal. Your provider uses very tiny needles to inject your platelets back into your body. With a new supply of your platelets, your tissue experiences growth and repair in the needed areas. As a result, new connective tissue and cells are formed, and your complexion appears more youthful and firm. 

What does microneedling entail?

Microneedling, also known as collagen-induction therapy, stimulates the production of collagen in the skin. Collagen, a structural protein that keeps your skin firm and glowing, is produced by your skin throughout your lifetime. However, collagen production decreases with age, resulting in wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin.

Anyone with problem skin can benefit from microneedling, including those with the following conditions:

  • Stretch marks
  • Wrinkles
  • Rough skin
  • Fine lines
  • Large pores
  • Acne scars
  • Hyperpigmentation

Microneedling may cause your skin to be red afterward, but these side effects will disappear within a few days. During the healing process, your skin may tighten and peel. Your appearance should improve within a week. To get the best results, The Aesthetic Lab recommends a series of 4-6 microneedling sessions spread out about a month apart.

What are the benefits of PRP and microneedling together?

Combining PRP and microneedling therapies is ideal for skin rejuvenation, acne scar reduction, and pore reduction. Additionally, the combination of PRP treatment with laser treatments, microneedling, and dermal fillers leads to even more beneficial effects, which result in radical and advanced cosmetic results. 

You can have your entire body treated with PRP, and the results are amazing. The skin becomes plumper and younger-looking, fine lines and wrinkles are reduced, and the contours of the skin are reshaped to create a youthful glow.
