PRP Microneedling

What Is PRP Microneedling?

PRP microneedling, also known as a “vampire facial” or “blood facial,” is the latest innovation in skin rejuvenation. This treatment combines two of the best skin rejuvenation techniques available, microneedling and PRP therapy, to address all your skin concerns, such as wrinkles, skin laxity, pigmentation problems, and more.

Microneedling involves making tiny micro-punctures on the skin’s surface, and PRP involves drawing a small sample of your blood and injecting it into your skin. However, both treatments activate your body’s innate healing processes, such as skin cell regeneration and collagen production, to improve your overall skin health.

How Does PRP Microneedling Work?

PRP microneedling is a non-surgical and non-invasive skin rejuvenation technique. It involves making micro-punctures on the skin’s surface with a microneedling device. Meanwhile, a small sample of your blood is harvested, purified in a centrifuge device, and applied as a facial to your post-microneedling skin. Combining the benefits of PRP and microneedling has incredible potential. However, to understand how PRP microneedling works, you must understand its individual components.

PRP

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy involves healing your skin concerns using PRPs drawn from a sample of your blood. PRP is the part of the blood with a high concentration of growth factors, the components responsible for most of your body’s healing and growth properties. PRP therapy involves harvesting a small sample of your blood, isolating the PRPs, and applying it to the skin. This concentrates your body’s healing properties on the treatment areas, thereby healing most skin concerns.

Microneedling

Microneedling involves making micro-injuries on the skin’s surface using a specialized device. Your body responds to the micro-punctures by activating collagen production and skin cell regeneration. Collagen is a fibrous protein that makes your skin look firm, taut, and voluminous, and its age-related loss is the primary reason for sagging skin and wrinkles. Microneedling encourages collagen production, thereby reversing the signs of aging, and replaces the damaged skin cells with new, firm, and even-textured skin.
