Microneedling is a forefront solution in the treatment of many dermatological problems, particularly those associated with acne scarring and aging. At LaserSkin MedSpa, this innovative approach joins the rejuvenating capacities of microneedling with the healing powers of PRP, derived from one’s blood. In synergy, these two powerhouses interdependently work to improve the texture and appearance of the skin, enhancing the natural processes of skin healing.

Understanding Micro-Needling and PRP

What is Micro-Needling?

Micro-needling, also called collagen induction therapy, is performed using a device that creates micro-pores on the very top of one’s skin using tiny needles. It is a minimally invasive treatment that aims to deceive the body into the wound-healing process, hence bringing about the synthesis of new cell turnover and collagen and elastin.

What is PRP?

PRP is a procedure in which a little blood is drawn and then centrifuged to concentrate the platelets. Platelets have growth factors responsible for the repair of injured tissues or, in this case, the rejuvenation of the skin. When applied on the skin after micro-needling, PRP has been shown to degranulate and release growth factors, hence further facilitating the natural healing process following micro-needling.

The Dual Benefits of Micro-Needling with PRP

Combining micro-needling with PRP creates a treatment greater than the sum of its parts. Here’s how this duo works together to combat acne scars and signs of aging:

Enhanced Collagen Production

Micro-needling on its own is effective in causing the production of collagen, but when combined with PRP, it supercharges that benefit. The growth factors in PRP stimulate the production of collagen to a greater degree, which causes a more intense reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity.

Reduction in Acne Scars

Acne scars, especially the pitted or depressed type, might not get well with treatment. Micro-needling with PRP not only elevates the indented scars—because it stimulates the production of collagen located beneath the indented scars—but also normalizes the skin texture and color.

Improvement in Skin Tone and Texture

This treatment does not only help with scars and wrinkles but improves the overall texture and tone of your skin. It can reduce large pores, smooth out uneven skin tone, and improve skin brilliance.

What to Expect During a Micro-Needling with PRP Treatment

Initial Consultation

At LaserSkin MedSpa, your treatment begins with a detailed consultation to discuss your skin concerns, medical history, and suitability for the treatment. This is essential to customize the treatment to best fit your needs and ensure safety throughout the procedure.

The Procedure

On the day of the treatment, blood is drawn and prepared to extract PRP. Meanwhile, the skin is cleansed and numbed to ensure comfort. The micro-needling device is then used over the treatment area, followed by the application of PRP. The entire process typically takes about an hour to complete.

Post-Treatment Care

Immediately following the treatment, you may notice redness and feel a bit of tightness or soreness in the treated area, similar to a mild sunburn. These symptoms are temporary and generally subside within a few days. Post-treatment care includes avoiding sun exposure and using gentle skincare products.

Long-Term Benefits and Maintenance

Sustained Improvement

Results begin to appear in the weeks following the treatment as the skin starts to heal itself. Optimal results typically require multiple sessions, depending on the severity of the skin concerns and the desired outcome.

Maintenance Treatments

While micro-needling with PRP offers durable results, maintenance sessions can be beneficial. Periodic treatments can help sustain the rejuvenated appearance of the skin and combat any new signs of aging.
