PRP and Microneedling: A Winning Combo That Can Naturally Rejuvenate Your Skin

If you've heard about the benefits of microneedling, why not try combining the procedure with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment? Sometimes known as a “vampire facial,” a combination treatment of PRP after a microneedling procedure naturally rejuvenates your skin and triggers your own regenerative healing capabilities. 

At American Beauty Medi Spa, we offer facial rejuvenation treatments, including PRP and microneedling, to male and female patients in the Lake Forest, California area. 

Better together

Microneedling is a popular cosmetic procedure used to minimize visible signs of aging. During a treatment, we use a special device to repeatedly prick the surface of your skin, stimulating the production of new collagen. 

Naturally occurring in your skin, collagen works to plump and smooth the surface of your face, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and returning your skin to a more youthful texture.

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, a groundbreaking treatment based on factors extracted from your own blood, is delivered as a targeted injection for rejuvenating results. We spin your blood in a centrifuge to collect the PRP. First used in surgical wound healing, PRP contains natural healing factors that jump-start your body's regenerative capabilities.

Microneedling, a proven technique for skin improvement, removes visible scars and fine lines. PRP treatments have recently revolutionized regenerative medicine. Combined, the two treatments work together to resurface your skin, leaving you looking years younger. PRP can also help decrease any side effects of redness or swelling that may occur as a result of microneedling treatments. 

What this combination treatment can do for you

While the benefits of PRP are still being studied, combined PRP and microneedling treatments promise to revitalize the outward surface of your skin. PRP and microneedling may also help erase scarring, and the treatment can be performed on any part of your body where it's needed, although facial use is the most popular application. You may need multiple sessions to achieve optimal results.

Your treatment appointment should only last for about one hour. You may have some immediate bruising and inflammation after treatment, but these side effects should be completely cleared in about four to six days. After treatment, let your skin rest and heal, using only gentle cleansers and moisturizers, and avoiding sun exposure.

Microneedling with PRP isn't for everyone. You should try other treatments if you are pregnant, scar easily or have a poor history with wound healing, have recently undergone radiation, or have recently used Accutane for acne.
