PRP injections are a non-invasive, natural alternative treatment for anti-aging, anti-wrinkle treatments and skin rejuvenation using your own blood. PRP is commonly referred to as “True Blood Therapy” involving the use of blood plasma, enriched through a special process to increase the concentration of platelets. These platelets contain bioactive proteins and growth factors that serve to accelerate tissue repair, regeneration, and to re-activate stem cells.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure for your skin. Your healthcare provider uses thin needles to make tiny holes in the top layer of your skin. This damage helps to stimulate your skin’s healing process, so that it will produce more collagen and elastin. These proteins keep your skin firm and smooth.
Microneedling with PRP is able to target the hair follicle directly, which will stimulate and repair your cells and encourage regrowth of your hair. While you may notice an improvement in hair thickness and texture in only a few weeks after microneedling with PRP, it generally takes three to six months to see noticeable hair regrowth.
Microneedling with PRP is a cosmetic treatment that stimulates collagen production by fine needle penetration over the skin and applying platelets, which are one of the components of your blood.
The addition of PRP from the blood helps to make the microneedling process more effective. The liquid in blood is plasma, while platelets are solid. Platelets help to clot the blood, so they are vital for healing wounds and injuries. PRP is plasma with a high concentration of platelets that is higher than that of other components of your blood.
A phlebotomist will take a blood sample and use a centrifuge to separate the PRP from the rest of the blood.
PRP contains proteins, including growth factors and cytokines. These proteins help skin tissue repair itself.
First, a practitioner will use a microneedling tool to prick the skin, making tiny holes in the skin’s surface. Then, they will then apply PRP to these tiny holes to encourage collagen production and cellular reproduction.
