What Are The Benefits Of Microneedling With PRP?


Microneedling is a surgical procedure that involves pricking the skin with a roller that contains fine needles. This system encourages the development of more collagen, which will aid in the healing of scars and the reduction of aging symptoms. 

  • Traditional Microneedling

Traditional micro-needling is used to treat a variety of conditions, including age marks, wrinkles, scarring, and hyperpigmentation. A dermatologist uses a special roller or device with needles to poke the skin and induce new collagen formation during a normal session. Microneedling is also known as collagen induction treatment or percutaneous collagen induction as a result of this.

  • Microneedling with PRP

Microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a cosmetic procedure that promotes collagen formation by rolling fine needles over the skin and injecting platelets, which are a component of blood. Microneedling can be more successful if PRP from the blood is added. Plasma is a liquid of blood, whereas platelets are solid. Platelets aid in the clotting of blood and are also important for the healing of wounds and injuries. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is plasma with a greater abundance of platelets than most blood products. Microneedling of plasma-rich platelets (PRP) rejuvenates the skin by using a portion of the patient's blood. 

A doctor will take a blood sample and remove the PRP from the rest of the blood using a centrifuge, a rotating instrument. Proteins, such as growth factors and cytokines, are found in PRP. These proteins aid in the self-repair of skin tissue. PRP will help you accomplish your goals quicker by enhancing these benefits. 

For an extra fee, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) may be injected or applied topically to the session. It can help to speed up the healing process and reduce the amount of redness and swelling that occurs after microneedling.

  • Benefits of Microneedling with PRP

If people choose to treat such bruises or blemishes on their body or face for aesthetic purposes, they may want to try micro needling with PRP. Microneedling with PRP can be used to treat the following conditions:

  • Skin texture that is uneven
  • Scars from acne
  • Skin damage caused by the sun
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Scars from surgery
  • Large pores

When PRP is combined with micro-needling, it has the ability to speed up the healing process and promote skin regeneration, resulting in improved outcomes than microneedling alone.

While scars and stretch marks on other parts of the body may be treated with microneedling, most research of PRP and scars seem to be based on the face. The word "vampire facial" usually refers to microneedling followed by the application of PRP topically. The majority of patients are suitable candidates for this operation, and there are few contraindications to therapy. 

  • Cheaper Alternative to Laser Treatment

Laser injections, which can cost up to four times as much as micro-needling, are more costly. Microneedling may be more effective for those with darker skin tones than laser treatments because it does not require fire, which may change the skin's pigmentation or color. Inquire with your dermatologist on the right options for your skin and your budget.

  • Things to Consider

Caution must be undertaken by people who are easily scared, pregnant, with skin conditions like eczema, who usually has a wound that takes a long time to heal, and who have undergone skin radiation treatment. If you fall into one of these groups, you can talk to your doctor about whether micro needling with PRP therapy is appropriate for you.
