Microneedling with PRP: It’s the Hottest Duo for Younger-Looking Skin

A consistent skin care routine can give you a luminous complexion, but it can’t stop the normal, age-related changes that inevitably show up on your body’s largest and most exposed organ — your gorgeous, resilient epidermis. 

As time goes by, the building blocks that give your skin its structure and shape (collagen and elastin) become weaker and less stable; at the same time, the long-term effects of sun damage (photoaging) begin to appear on the surface of your skin.  

Luckily, you don’t have to live with fine lines, pigmented spots, and a dull, uneven complexion; Tasneem Agha, MD, and the team at Rose Lavande Med Spa can help you achieve total skin renewal with PRP microneedling. Here’s how it works.

Revitalize the skin you’re in

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) microneedling takes a unique approach to skin rejuvenation that unites two potent catalysts for collagen growth and elastin renewal — PRP and microneedling — into one simple yet highly effective treatment.    

PRP microneedling is a minimally invasive facial technique with major anti-aging benefits: by stimulating a drastic increase in the production of the very proteins that keep your skin strong, supple, youthful, and resilient, it revitalizes your complexion from the inside out. 

Each element of a PRP microneedling treatment plays an invaluable role in creating smoother, tighter skin and a more youthful-looking complexion.  

Microneedling  

Microneedling is a gentle skin treatment that uses a special, pen-like device to create a series of tiny punctures (microchannels) across the surface of your skin. These superficial “wounds” trigger your body’s natural corrective mechanisms, causing a skin-transforming influx of fresh collagen and elastin.

Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling offers complete skin renewal from the inside out, or from the underlying substructures of your epidermal tissues to the soft, touchable surface of your face.

PRP serum

PRP is a super-concentrated serum of regenerative platelets derived from your own blood. To create this powerful skin-nourishing serum, Dr. Agha draws a small amount of blood from your arm and spins it in a high-velocity centrifuge machine until the platelets have visibly separated from the plasma. 

Often called “liquid gold,” your unique PRP serum has up to 10 times as many platelets as what’s found in unprocessed blood. Platelets are beneficial because they contain hundreds of bioactive growth factors that stimulate rapid cellular proliferation and tissue regeneration.   

When smoothed across your skin after a microneedling treatment, PRP filters down the fresh microchannels to your deepest epidermal layers, where its potent growth factors take collagen growth and elastin renewal to the next level. 

Safe, effortless, and painless

Your PRP microneedling treatment begins with the application of an anesthetic lotion to ensure optimal comfort from start to finish. As the numbing agent takes effect, Dr. Agha completes the blood draw and prepares your PRP serum. 

Once your skin is desensitized, Dr. Agha gently presses the microneedling device across your face to create the microchannels that will stimulate the collagen remodeling process and carry the PRP serum to your deepest dermal layers.   

The entire process session lasts for about 90 minutes. You can expect to see smoother, more uniform skin, a brighter complexion, and fewer lines, wrinkles, and age spots within a day or two, and ongoing skin improvements as the collagen remodeling process continues to unfold. 

Remarkable results that last

PRP microneedling is considered the ultimate anti-wrinkle facial for good reason: it diminishes the most visible signs of aging as it balances uneven skin tone, smooths irregular skin texture, clears and tightens pores, and brightens your complexion. 

Just one PRP microneedling session can leave you with remarkable skin renewal results and long-lasting facial rejuvenation; quarterly treatments can help you keep your skin looking fresh and youthful as time marches on.
