Tired of looking at the fine lines on your face? Ever heard of a “vampire facial”? Do not be startled! It is actually a fancy name given to microneedling with PRP. A treatment that uses your own blood to help your skin look younger. Haven’t heard much about it? Well, we have you covered.

What Does Microneedling With PRP Do?

Microneedling and PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) are well researched to improve your skin’s tone and texture. Usually, they are combined to further stimulate new skin cells and collagen growth.

Microneedling involves puncturing the skin with tiny needles that create microscopic tubes or inlets, triggering your body’s natural healing mechanism, resulting in new skin growth. It successfully can combat issues such as:

  • Acne scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Enlarged pores
  • Burn scars
  • Alopecia

On the other hand, PRP is a concentrated serum extracted from your own blood that is a mix of natural platelets that instruct the body to create new collagen for tighter, smoother, and even-toned skin.

PRP functions by setting a goal at the “injured” area caused by the micro-needling. This aids in repairing damaged tissues, and accentuating the results of the micro-needling treatment for faster, and better results.

When both treatments, microneedling with PRP are combined, they can achieve healthier skin at a faster rate. This action is owed to the boost of plasma proteins working with the collagen and elastin. However, the results and recovery time may vary depending on your skin type.

How Useful Is This Procedure?

Microneedling with PRP is a cosmetic procedure that enhances the physical appearance of your skin by improving its tone and texture. More often than not, it is often recommended for those who have severe concerns like deep scarring, worsened lines and wrinkles, or significant sun damage. It involves using a mechanical device that resembles a pen. It contains fine needles to create microscopic holes in the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing response for elastin and collagen growth.

Closing Note

In a nutshell, microneedling and PRP are both effective treatments when standing alone but they work better together. Although combined, both have different methods and results.
