What is Microneedling with PRP?
Microneedling with PRP is a cosmetic procedure that involves using a microneedling device to create small, controlled injuries on the skin's surface, which stimulates the body's natural healing response. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is then applied to the treated area, which contains a high concentration of growth factors and other healing agents to further enhance skin healing and rejuvenation. This produces greater results than microneedling alone, because the therapeutic benefits of PRP enhance the body’s regenerative processes.
How Much Does Microneedling with PRP Cost in Monroe, LA and Southlake, TX?
The cost of microneedling treatments with PRP varies with each individual depending upon skin condition and treatment goals. During your consultation, the options for your treatment will be discussed and you will be informed of costs associated with each option. We’ll make sure you have a clear understanding of your treatment options and their costs as you make your treatment decisions.
What are the Benefits of Microneedling with PRP?
Microneedling with PRP is an effective treatment for addressing a variety of cosmetic concerns, including:
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars
- Stretch marks
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Enlarged pores
- Uneven skin texture
How Does Microneedling with PRP Work?
Microneedling with PRP works by creating small, controlled injuries to the skin's surface, which stimulates the body's natural healing response. This triggers an increase in collagen production, which helps to rejuvenate the skin and reverse skin damage. The injections of PRP further enhance the process by introducing growth factors to the treatment area that help accelerate the healing process.
What Should I Expect from the PRP Microneedling Treatment?
PRP microneedling treatments begin with drawing a small amount of blood from the patient. This blood is then processed to extract the platelet-rich plasma. Next, the skin is numbed with a topical anesthetic and we’ll use a microneedling device to create small injuries on the skin’s surface. Then, PRP is injected into the treatment area, after which treatment will be complete. This treatment takes approximately one hour to complete.
Is There Any Downtime After Microneedling with PRP?
Patients may experience some redness, swelling, and sensitivity after microneedling with PRP, which typically subsides within a few days. Patients should avoid applying makeup or other topical products to the treated area for at least 24 hours. Otherwise, patients will be able to return to their normal activities immediately after their PRP microneedling treatments.
What Results Can I Expect from Microneedling with PRP?
Results from PRP microneedling will start becoming visible within a few days to a week after the procedure. However, optimal results typically require a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart. Over time, patients will begin to see a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, a more even skin tone, and improved skin texture and elasticity. We may recommend a series of 3 to 6 treatments administered at monthly intervals.
