Microneedling with Plasma

Microneedling with plasma is a minimally invasive treatment that combines microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to improve skin texture and reduce signs of aging.

What is Microneedling with Plasma?

Microneedling with plasma is a minimally invasive treatment that combines microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to improve skin texture and reduce signs of aging. The procedure involves using a device with fine needles to create micro-punctures in the skin, stimulating collagen production and enhancing skin texture. Following this, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is applied to the skin to accelerate the healing process and further stimulate collagen induction therapy.

How it combines microneedling with platelet rich plasma (PRP)

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that creates tiny micro-injuries in the skin, which in turn triggers the body’s natural healing process. This process stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, essential proteins that contribute to the skin's firmness and elasticity. By encouraging the skin to heal itself, microneedling helps to improve overall skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a component of blood that is exceptionally rich in growth factors, which play a crucial role in tissue repair and regeneration. When applied to the skin following microneedling, PRP significantly enhances the treatment's effectiveness. The growth factors in PRP further stimulate collagen production, improve skin texture, and promote the healing of acne scars. This combination therapy results in a more youthful, radiant complexion and addresses various skin concerns simultaneously.
