Microneedling with PRP has the following benefits:
Microneedling with PRF is a powerhouse treatment combination. Microneedling will stimulate collagen and elastin production, while PRF will accelerate the healing process and further enhance collagen synthesis. This treatment combination will effectively address brown spots, under-eye bags, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and rejuvenate dull-looking skin. All skin types and skin tones may be able to benefit from this treatment.
Microneedling is typically well-tolerated. Before beginning the microneedling procedure, you will be given a topical numbing cream to ensure that you are comfortable during the treatment. The wounds caused by the needles are not deep and heal quickly.
Treatments are generally performed every 4-6 weeks for a total of 3 treatments. Additional treatments may be needed, depending on your goals and skin condition.
Some patients will actually notice results as soon as one week after their first treatment as the skin begins to look tighter and smoother. Full results are typically seen 4-6 weeks after treatment as it takes roughly this long for the body to create new, robust, healthy collagen. Results may continue to improve even up to 6 months from the last microneedling session.
There is no downtime after microneedling therapy. Skin will most likely be slightly red, similar to a mild sunburn for approximately 24-48 hours. You will need to follow specific post-procedure skincare instructions and protect your delicate skin from direct sun exposure for the next three days. You should also avoid any activities that cause flushing and sweating, such as strenuous exercise, hot tubs, and saunas for the next three days.
