The ultimate facial: microneedling with PRP

Both microneedling and PRP provide amazing results on their own. The power of both comes from stimulating your body’s natural production of collagen, so when putting these together in a two-in-one treatment, your results skyrocket. 

Here’s a look at microneedling and PRP on their own, and then a look at what happens when they’re combined.

All about microneedling

During a microneedling treatment, your Integrative Primary Care provider uses a special tool with miniscule needles to make tiny cuts, or microchannels, in the top layer of your skin. Don’t worry if this sounds painful: The microneedles are too small to cause pain or bleeding. 

Instead, the tiny injuries trigger your body’s natural healing process to produce collagen, elastin, and other key skin proteins. They are produced at higher levels to rebuild and repair your broken skin tissue. 

The result is fresh, youthful-looking skin as your body goes to work healing your skin. 

All about platelet-rich plasma (PRP) 

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses the natural growth factors and healing properties found in the platelets in your blood. These factors encourage the production of collagen and elastin, which is why they’re used in PRP treatments. 

During the procedure, your Integrative Primary Care provider takes a small amount of your blood and puts it in a centrifuge. This device spins the blood, separating the platelets from the rest of your blood to create the PRP solution. Your provider then injects the solution into target areas. 

Your skin naturally sheds its top layer after a PRP treatment. This leaves you with skin with the newer and stronger collagen and elastin fibers generated by this all-natural treatment. The result? Tighter skin and a youthful glow.

Combining microneedling and PRP

When you put microneedling and PRP together, the effects of each other get a boost, and skin turnover happens more quickly. The PRP solution is spread across the microchannels from the microneedling tool, doubling up these powerful treatments. This means that results show faster than if you only did one or the other. 

You can look years younger due to the increased collagen and elastin production. But you can also address other skin issues with benefits such as:

Not only can you experience these great results, but they keep on coming since the increase in collagen triggers your body to continue producing it. In other words, you enjoy your smooth, refreshed skin longer.

How to boost your results even more

You can further boost the results of your microneedling with PRP facial by adding additional aesthetic treatments. This results in even more dramatic rejuvenation. 

Your provider at Integrative Primary Care helps build a personalized aesthetic treatment plan by discussing your goals and analyzing your skin. Your treatments may include:
