Microneedling with PRP

Microneedling with PRP is a cosmetic treatment that stimulates collagen production by

rolling fine needles over the skin and applying platelets, which are one of the

components of blood.

The addition of PRP from the blood may make microneedling more effective. The liquid

in blood is plasma, while platelets are solid. Platelets help blood clot, so they are vital

for healing wounds and injuries. PRP is plasma in which the concentration of platelets is

higher than that of other components of the blood.

What to expect 

A practitioner will take a blood sample and then use a spinning tool called a centrifuge

to separate the PRP from the rest of the blood.

PRP contains proteins, including growth factors and cytokines. These proteins help skin

tissue repair itself.

First, a practitioner will use a microneedling tool to prick the skin, making tiny holes in

the skin’s surface. They will then apply PRP to these tiny holes to encourage collagen

production and cell reproduction.
