Microneedling with PRP Treatment in Woodland Hills, CA

While the name “microneedling with PRP” sounds a little scary, the results from this innovative beauty treatment are anything but scary. The facial combines two effective procedures: microneedling and PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment. Here’s what you need to know about the procedure.

What is a Microneedling with PRP?

A microneedling with PRP treatment is a non-surgical procedure that uses microneedling in conjunction with PRP treatment. Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves pricking the skin with tiny needles, using either a roller or pin-like device.

For our microneedling procedures in Woodland Hills, CA, we use a device known as the Rejuvapen that allows us to offer precise, customizable microneedling treatments.

PRP treatment refers to the application or injection of PRP from your blood into or onto your skin. With the microneedling with PRP, we apply the PRP to your skin.

How Does a microneedling with PRP Work?

During a microneedling with PRP, we will draw a blood sample that we’ll use for your PRP. We only need a small amount of blood, so this process isn’t overly painful or uncomfortable.

Before the microneedling procedure begins, your medical practitioner applies a topical anesthetic to your skin. This numbs your skin so that you don’t experience any discomfort or pain.

The Rejuvapen lightly pricks your skin, creating small microchannels that will encourage your body to produce more collagen and allow skin treatments (like PRP) to reach deeper layers of your skin. Increased collagen production firms your skin and improves its elasticity.

What is PRP?

PRP refers to plasma rich in platelets that are taken from your blood. After we draw your blood, we use a centrifuge to separate it into platelet-rich plasma, plasma low in platelets, and red blood cells.

The platelets in your blood encourage your body to repair damaged tissues and cells. Enzymes from the platelets attract stem cells to the area that assist with the damage repair.

Medical practitioners have found multiple uses for PRP treatments, including using injections to help injured tendons and other soft tissues heal. The healing process promoted by PRP treatments reduces the appearance of scars (including acne scars), fine lines, and large pores.

What Conditions Does a microneedling with PRP Treat?

One of the main benefits of a microneedling with PRP is that it treats a variety of skin ailments, including:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Scarring
  • Acne
  • Loose skin
  • Dark circles
  • Puffy skin
  • Dull skin
  • Rough skin texture

Whether you have one or all of these ailments, you’re likely to see an improvement in the tone, elasticity, and texture of your skin with a microneedling with PRP.

For the best results, plan on having three to six treatments spaced one month apart. Many patients see a noticeable difference in their skin after a single session, with results becoming even more apparent one to two months after their treatment.

What Happens During a microneedling with PRP?

Most microneedling with PRP last between 30 minutes and an hour. Your session will begin with your medical practitioner drawing a blood sample for your PRP.

After your blood is centrifuged to separate the PRP, the microneedling portion of the facial begins. Once the microneedling treatment is complete, your PRP is applied to your face.

You should leave the PRP in place for a few hours before washing your face to remove any remaining blood or serum. Avoid using makeup or sunscreen for six hours after your facial.

What Should You Expect After Your microneedling with PRP?

When your facial is complete, your skin may be red and sore, though this should go away within a few days. It’s also normal to have bruising and swelling afterward that may last for up to five days.

There’s no downtime associated with a microneedling with PRP; you can usually resume your normal activities the day of your appointment. To aid the healing process, make sure to drink plenty of water and wear sunscreen to protect your skin.

Who Can Get a microneedling with PRP?

Most people with skin woes or who want to enhance the appearance of their skin are good candidates for the microneedling with PRP.

If you have anemia, blood or bone cancer, or a blood disorder, you should avoid the microneedling with PRP and consider other skin care procedures.
