What is microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic procedure that uses a device with fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin’s surface. These tiny punctures stimulate the body’s natural healing process, promoting collagen and elastin production.

Microneedling treatments improve skin texture, reduce wrinkles, scars, and hyperpigmentation, and enhance overall skin quality.

How does PRP therapy enhance microneedling?

PRP therapy involves the extraction and concentration of a patient’s own platelets, which are rich in growth factors. Platelets are present in your blood and easily extracted through processing a sample of blood from your arm.

The growth factors in platelets play a pivotal role in tissue repair and regeneration. In the context of microneedling, the team applies PRP topically or injects it into the skin after the microneedling procedure.

What are the benefits of combining microneedling with PRP?

PRP and microneedling together enhance collagen production. PRP contains growth factors that may stimulate collagen and elastin production, improving skin texture and elasticity. Collagen and elastin are important skin compounds that boost elasticity and resilience.

PRP can also accelerate the skin's healing process, potentially reducing downtime and discomfort associated with microneedling. Many individuals report more significant improvements in skin tone, texture, and overall quality when microneedling and PRP are paired together.

What happens during a microneedling with a PRP session?

During the procedure, your provider cleanses your skin and applies a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort. A microneedling device gently rolls over the treatment area. You’ll feel some tingling and pressure. This is followed by the application of PRP.

After the session, you may notice some redness and mild swelling. Your skin may also feel temporarily more sensitive. Over the following days, the skin may peel or flake as it undergoes the natural rejuvenation process.

You’ll start to notice results in the weeks following the treatment. Dr. Buttar customizes your treatment plan, but usually, he recommends multiple sessions for the best results.
