PRP is obtained by performing a small blood draw from the patient. The blood is drawn from the patient in their arm at the time the procedure is being performed. The blood is then centrifuged with a focus on concentrating the platelets. Platelets have been shown to release growth factors that offer many benefits to the patients, including helping the patient heal, new tissue growth, and collagen regeneration.
Historically, PRP has been used in a variety of specialties including Plastics, OB/GYN, Orthopedics, Dentistry, and General surgery for its ability to help accelerate healing, minimize blood loss, decrease pain, eliminate drains, and help decrease the risk of infection. Currently, PRP is being utilized in the field of cosmetic dermatology to help damaged and aging skin grow new collagen and elastin for beautiful, more youthful results.
What are the benefits of using PRP with microneedling?
When PRP is used during a microneedling treatment, the PRP penetrates the tiny channels the microneedles create. The PRP increases the benefits of the microneedling treatment by bringing in the healing abilities of concentrated growth factors. Since PRP is derived from your own blood, the side effects are virtually eliminated.
