PRP Micro-Needling Q&A

What is PRP?

PRP or platelet-rich plasma is a compound derived from your blood. After a conventional blood draw, the technicians at Rose Lavande Med Spa use a special centrifuge to spin down the sample and concentrate the platelets. Platelets, a component of your blood responsible for clotting, contain numerous growth factors and healing properties that can help you heal from injuries, stimulate hair follicles, and rejuvenate skin cells.

PRP may help:

  • Improve acne scars and stretch marks
  • Erase uneven pigmentation
  • Diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • Enhance skin tone and texture

Combining PRP with microneedling makes for a revolutionary rejuvenating treatment that significantly improves the look and tone of your skin.

What is microneedling?

During a microneedling session, your provider rolls the FDA-cleared SkinPen® - a specialized device affixed with dozens of tiny needles - over your skin. These needles create micro-wounds that aren’t visible to the eye but stimulate your body’s healing capacity. Your body creates more collagen and elastin in response to the wounds.

The mini-punctures also create channels through which topical serums and creams can reach the deeper layers of your skin, such as PRP.

What is the benefit of PRP microneedling?

Combining PRP with microneedling gives you maximum healing benefits. The microneedling boosts your body’s healing capabilities to bolster up tired, aging skin. When injected or placed on your skin, the healing properties of PRP further stimulate the production of collagen.

As you get older, your production of collagen decreases, and, as a result, your skin loses elasticity, thins, and sags. When you stimulate healing and collagen production, you reverse these aging effects and achieve stronger, smoother, healthier skin.

PRP microneedling is entirely natural and involves no chemicals. It uses your blood, so there’s no risk of rejection or reaction.

When do I see the results of PRP microneedling?

In the day or two after treatment, you notice your complexion has an enhanced glow. Your results continue to improve in the weeks following treatment as your body continues to build more collagen.
