The Magic of Microneedling With PRP: 5 Awesome Benefits

The Magic of Microneedling With PRP: 5 Awesome Benefits

If you’re not entirely pleased with your complexion lately but you aren’t interested in cosmetic surgery, you may want to consider microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

Each session requires only a short, in-office visit, and while you notice a difference right away, you can expect to see more benefits unfolding for weeks or even months after treatment, which relies on natural processes within your skin and body — no chemicals or medications required.

At Dutch Hollow Medical Day Spa in Godfrey, Illinois, our team of aesthetic specialists offers advanced microneedling treatments to enhance your skin. Take a few moments to learn more about them, including five awesome perks you can anticipate.

How microneedling with PRP works

During microneedling, your provider uses a dermaroller with hundreds of tiny needles that prick your skin, triggering your body’s natural healing processes. Blood rushes to the surface, bringing healing cells and nutrients. And in the following days and weeks, you shed old skin cells, revealing a more vibrant complexion.

This process also aims to improve your skin elasticity by spurring production of collagen and elastin — substances that make your skin supple and plump but which your body produces less of as you age.

While you might get the results you’re hoping for from microneedling alone, we strive to bring you even greater results by incorporating platelet-rich plasma. For this treatment, we take a tiny sample of your blood and separate out the platelets in a centrifuge to concentrate them in a plasma solution. We then inject that PRP into target areas. 

5 awesome benefits of microneedling with PRP

Platelet-rich plasma brings even more benefits to microneedling, given that plasma plays a key role in healing. While individual results vary, microneedling and PRP combined can benefit your skin in these amazing ways:

  1. Reducing acne scars
  2. Diminishing dark spots from aging or sun damage
  3. Smoothing out fine lines
  4. Refreshing lackluster skin
  5. Shrinking large pores 

In other words, microneedling with PRP is designed to stimulate and support your body’s ability to create new, healthier, and more youthful-looking skin.

As an added perk, this treatment is only minimally invasive. You don’t require much downtime after the procedure or have to deal with the risks and lengthy recovery of surgery. Any side effects, such as redness, bruising, and swelling, tend to be relatively mild and short-lived.

You can also pair microneedling with PRP with additional rejuvenating treatments, such as Botox® and Juvéderm® dermal fillers, for even more pronounced results. These injectable wrinkle treatments can minimize deeper lines, such as crow’s feet and frown lines, while your microneedling treatment improves the overall tone and consistency of your skin.
