What Is Micro-needling Plus PRP?

PRP is an innovative treatment that uses the power of your blood’s platelets to unlock your youngest skin ever. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, and it’s a unique compound that triggers increased circulation and stimulates collagen production. production within the treatment area. With this procedure, the platelet-rich plasma is applied topically, immediately following a micro-needle treatment, Doing so helps the PRP solution reach deeper layers of the dermis for a greater impact.

How Does It Work?

This procedure takes about an hour and a half and it begins with the withdrawal of a few teaspoons of blood from the arm. The blood is prepared and placed in a centrifuge, which separates the platelets. These platelets are added to a special formula that activates their growth factors. The serum is applied topically to the skin following the use of a micro-needle device, which ablates the surface of the skin. Overall, this procedure is designed to stimulate long-term collagen production, all while encouraging a smooth and radiant complexion.

Is It Painful?*

Micro-needling, as the name suggests, does involve the use of tiny needles, which are gently pressed into the skin, at varying depths. Some patients may find it uncomfortable. That’s why your Derma-Tech specialist will use a topical numbing agent and/or ice to make the procedure more comfortable for you. Side effects may include skin sensitivity, redness, and minor swelling, so you’ll need to wear sunscreen to protect your skin from UVA/UVB rays. Micro-needling may require 2-3 days of recovery time. In most cases, you may wear makeup after 24-48 hours, however some redness and/or tenderness may persist for a few more days. You’ll notice a definite improvement in appearance in a week to 10 days, however you may need more than one treatment to experience optimal results; your Derma Tech specialist can work with you to determine how many sessions you might need.
