Microneedling With PRP / Collagen Induction Therapy

Microneedling Target Areas

Micro needling with platelet rich plasma therapy (often referred to as collagen induction therapy) is a combination skin care procedure that can improve skin tone and restore a glowing complexion. Micro needling creates microscopic holes in your skin to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin to enhance skin structure. Platelet rich plasma treatment is often used alongside microneedling to promote quicker, more efficient healing. Together, these two procedures can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scarring, sun damage, and blemishes. Microneedling and PRP are often used on the face, neck, and arms, but can also treat other areas of the body. Together, these skin care treatments can achieve long-lasting, natural-looking results.

What Is Micro Needling And PRP?

Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) utilizes an innovative tool known as the COSMOPen to create tiny punctures in your skin. Your micro needling doctor can apply the COSMOPen evenly around the treatment area to ensure symmetrical results. Your skin immediately begins responding to the small holes made from microneedling by stimulating the growth of new collagen and elastin fibers. Over time, this natural response can result in a firmer, smoother-looking skin texture.

Platelet rich plasma therapy can be used in conjunction with micro needling to further enhance your results. During PRP treatment, a blood sample is taken from your arm and then spun in a centrifuge. The centrifuge separates your platelet rich plasma from your red and white blood cells. Once your PRP is isolated, it is then injected into the skin.

PRP and microneedling work together to achieve substantial results. Micro needling treatment can help your skin absorb PRP injections. Additionally, PRP treatment can enhance your skin’s ability to heal itself following microneedling.

Microneedling Overview

What Can I Expect Before My Micro Needling And PRP Procedure?

Dr. Asaadi will examine you and take your medical history to determine if you are a candidate for microneedling and platelet rich plasma therapy. Ideal candidates for this combination skin care procedure would like to enhance skin tone and reduce wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and blemishes.

Micro needling patients are given pre-care guidelines to follow to best prepare for their treatment. These instructions may include dietary restrictions, as well as restrictions on certain medications or supplements in the weeks before microneedling and PRP therapy.

What Can I Expect After My Microneedling and Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment?

Microneedling and PRP patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, redness, and peeling for a few days following treatment. You can typically resume your daily routine within a few days of your micro needling procedure.

Combining microneedling and platelet rich plasma treatment can yield natural-looking results. Patients can reduce wrinkling, fine lines, acne scars, blemishes, and sun damage. Several treatments may be required for optimal results and patients can expect continuing improvements to their skin texture over the next few months. Once your results are fully achieved, they are long-lasting.
