Microneedling, or “collagen induction therapy” can significantly improve your facial skin quality with a regenerative technique. When microneedling is performed with the addition of platelet rich plasma (PRP), you are calling upon the natural healing powers of your body to rejuvenate your skin. Microneedling with PRP can repair and tone your skin, smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles, and leave you with more youthful, supple facial skin.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that can improve the look of scars, boost collagen and elastin production, and significantly refresh your skin’s appearance. The idea of a microneedling treatment is to encourage natural healing for firmer, healthier skin. Our microneedling device is FDA-approved and safe for treatment. Our expert aesthetician will apply PRP to your skin as the first step in your treatment. The microneedling handheld device is passed carefully over your face so the very fine needles can create micro-channels, allowing the PRP to enter the deeper skin layers to stimulate natural healing.

How does PRP add to microneedling treatments?

When you combine the benefits of PRP to a microneedling treatment, you are greatly enhancing your results. Microneedling works to stimulate healing, and when combined with PRP, you are taking your treatment to a higher level. PRP helps your skin regenerate from within, and may also reduce the number of microneedling treatments you will need. Adding PRP to your microneedling treatment can smooth and firm scarred facial skin by increasing collagen and elastin production.

Benefits of Micrnoneedling With PRP

In addition to sending a signal to the skin to heal, the PRP increases the quantity of natural collagen and elastin produced within your skin. PRP gives traditional microneedling a boost, as it contains growth hormones, stem cells, and white blood cells. The benefits of adding PRP to your microneedling treatment include:

  • Non-invasive
  • Improves the skin’s tone and texture
  • Can be used on all skin types
  • Minimal recovery
  • No downtime
  • Long-lasting
  • Minimal no pain

Microneedling with PRP for scar removal treatment after surgery

Scars are formed by an uneven buildup of collagen, leaving an incision site looking rough, sunken, or raised. Dr. Sajan offers effective surgical scar removal treatments to improve the appearance of sunken, uneven, or discolored surgical scars. Microneedling with PRP triggers natural healing within the skin structure so unsightly surgical scars fade, causing the damaged skin to regenerate from within.

How does it work and how many treatments are needed?

Microneedling with PRP stimulates natural collagen production uniformly across scarred skin tissue. The micro-injuries created by needles triggers healing within the skin to fade visible surgical scars. The addition of PRP (platelet rich plasma), makes the process even more effective, smoothing away scars as your skin regenerates, with healing enhanced by the natural growth factors in PRP. Six treatments are often necessary for the best results, with four weeks between each treatment.

Who is a candidate?

Microneedling can treat a wide range of skin conditions and imperfections. It is an excellent treatment for minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, restoring skin firmness, tightening skin, and reducing the appearance of facial scars from acne, a previous surgery, or an injury. Microneedling with PRP is not only safe, but it is minimally invasive, making it an excellent option for almost anyone who would like to enhance the facial skin in appearance, firmness, and natural glow.

In some rare cases, microneedling with PRP is not a good option. Because the procedure requires a blood draw, it is essential to talk with us about any health concerns you may have and if you are currently taking any medications such as Accutane or other similar drugs.

What should I expect after treatment?

PRP with microneedling skin enhancement continues to improve your skin quality over the weeks and months following your treatment as your skin regenerates. To see a truly remarkable increase in skin quality, you will need some time for your skin produce more natural collagen and elastin. For optimal results, Dr. Sajan may recommend that you undergo a series of treatments.

How long is the recovery?

You can return to your usual activities immediately following your PRP microneedling treatment. Although the procedure is not painful, you might experience some redness or minor swelling, which typically resolves within a few hours.
