PRP and Microneedling: The Ultimate Rejuvenating Combination

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy combined with microneedling is a cutting-edge and effective combination for skin rejuvenation and addressing various cosmetic concerns. This synergistic approach involves the use of the body’s natural healing mechanisms and innovative techniques to enhance skin texture, tone and overall appearance.

Understanding PRP

PRP involves extracting a patient’s blood, processing it to isolate a concentrated solution of platelets and growth factors, and then applying this plasma to the skin. Platelets play a crucial role in tissue repair and regeneration, stimulating collagen production and promoting cell turnover, making PRP an excellent tool for rejuvenating the skin.

Microneedling Process

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), utilizes a device equipped with fine needles to create microscopic punctures into the skin’s surface. These controlled micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing response, prompting the production of collagen and elastin, essential proteins for healthy, youthful skin.

Combining PRP and Microneedling for Optimal Results

When PRP is combined with microneedling, the two techniques complement each other, enhancing the overall rejuvenating effects. Some of the benefits of this combination include:

  • Enhanced Collagen Production: Microneedling creates micro-injuries, allowing better penetration and absorption of the PRP solution into the deeper layers of the skin. The growth factors in PRP further stimulate collagen production, amplifying the skin’s natural regenerative processes. This synergy results in improved skin elasticity, texture and firmness.
  • Improved Skin Tone and Texture: The combination of PRP and microneedling helps address a range of skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone. The increased collagen and elastin production contribute to smoother, more even-textured skin with reduced signs of aging and scarring.
  • Reduced Downtime and Enhanced Healing: The micro-injuries created by microneedling, when coupled with the application of PRP, accelerate the skin’s healing process. Patients often experience reduced downtime and faster recovery compared to traditional treatments, with minimal discomfort or side effects.
  • Customized Treatment: The PRP used in combination with microneedling is derived from the patient’s blood, minimizing the risk of adverse reactions or complications. The treatment can be tailored to address specific skin concerns and individual needs, ensuring a personalized approach to skin rejuvenation.
  • Long-lasting Results: The rejuvenating effects of PRP combined with microneedling are gradual and continue to improve over time as collagen production increases. While multiple sessions may be recommended for optimal results, patients can enjoy long-lasting improvements in skin quality and appearance.

It is important to note that while PRP and microneedling offer numerous benefits, results may vary depending on individual skin types, concerns, and the professional that completes the procedure. It is vital that this combo procedure is performed by a qualified medical professional – Creative Facial Aesthetics was founded by a dual board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Maurice Khosh and Michele Rivard, DMSc, MS, PA, with extensive experience performing complex facial enhancement procedures.

PRP therapy combined with microneedling presents a promising and innovative approach to skin rejuvenation, offering a non-invasive, natural method for achieving smoother, firmer and more radiant skin, making it a popular choice for individuals seeking comprehensive skin rejuvenation.

Stephen P.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

Robin M.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

Scott S.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Melodie D.

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
