Facial Microneedling with PRP
Facial microneedling treatments can be done with or without PRP. Platelet-rich plasma has been shown through several dermatological studies to significantly improve cosmetic results, especially when compounded over several treatments. The biggest benefit of microneedling treatments using PRP is seen when it is used to treat severe acne scarring or even facial burns.
PRP is obtained through a simple venipuncture, or blood draw. Then, your blood it is placed in a centrifuge, which will cause the various parts of the blood to separate. While the platelet-poor blood and erythrocytes are not needed for the facial treatment, the PRP is saved.
There are two ways to use the platelet-rich plasma during your minimally invasive, facial microneedling treatment. It can be injected into the skin during the microneedling of your skin, or it can be applied to the skin immediately after. There are benefits to each method, and the best choice for you should be discussed during a consultation appointment.
Facial Microneedling Without PRP
While there are many reasons why facial microneedling with PRP is beneficial, there may be some circumstances in which it may not provide the best results. The only way to know is to meet with Dr. Khosh or Michele Rivard, PA, personally to go over the reasons for the procedure and answer some questions. You can also learn more about the procedure in general during your consultation.
Benefits of Microneedling With or Without PRP
While the insertion of the small needles into the skin stimulates the production of natural collagen, which can provide benefits on its own, adding PRP can further stimulate the growth of new cells. This reduces the appearance of scars and helps the skin fill in fine wrinkles on its own. PRP is taken from your own blood sample, so you are not exposed to any additional risks. Find out if this is the best option for you by meeting with either Dr. Khosh or Michele Rivard, PA. For a consultation, contact Creative Facial Aesthetics today.
