Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a substance that promotes healing. Plasma is a component of your blood, that when removed and concentrated, contains special proteins that support cell growth called growth factors. Using PRP on damaged tissues should stimulate your body to grow new, healthy cells and promote healing.
Using PRP with a MicroPen microneedling device allows for penetration of PRP into the skin. The micro channels created by the MicroPen allow even distribution of PRP across the treatment area as well as absorption into deeper layers of the skin. PRP’s growth factors penetrate these deeper skin layers, encouraging collagen growth and rejuvenation of collagen cells.
Benefits of Microneedling with PRP:
- Scar reduction
- Facial rejuvenation
- Treats fine lines and wrinkles
- Minimal downtime
- Long-lasting effects
Microneedling alone and MicroPen with PRP are both great treatments for facial rejuvenation. However, when PRP and microneedling are used together, the results are intensified and the healing time is reduced. It is a great way to refresh the face without the downtime of surgery or a chemical peel.
