PRP with Microneedling - Full Face
Microneedling is a noninvasive procedure whereby micro needles are used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and tighten skin. The micro needle stimulates collagen production in the skin without damaging the skin. When microneedling is combined with PRP, the therapy may then be referred to as a "PRP" or "collagen induction therapy".
The process for microneedling with PRP begins with the collection of blood to make the PRP. First, blood will be drawn (certified phlebotomist) from a vein in the arm, typically 10-15ml. The blood sample is then placed in a centrifuge which isolates the platelets, forming the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) concentration. This step in the process typically takes 10 minutes. While the centrifuge is distilling the PRP, the client's skin will be cleansed in preparation for the treatment. A light numbing agent will be applied to the treatment area to help prevent discomfort during the procedure. The practitioner will gently glide the microneedling device (DERMAPEN) over the area to be treated, creating tiny holes in the skin penetrating approximately .5 to 1mm in depth. The microneedling device is a hand held machine that will have between 12-80 sterile, stainless needles that penetrate the skin. Once the area has been thoroughly treated, the Esthetician will then apply the now developed PRP concentration. Skin could begin to feel taut shortly after the session. Following treatment it is advised to not wash off any residual residue so as to allow the PRP to continue to penetrate the skin. Skin might progressively improve in the weeks to come in tone and texture.
