PRP forms a natural and effective glide for microneedling. In microneedling, the medical provider will create micro injuries through micro punctures on the skin using the FDA approved SkinPen. Safety of the microneedling device is key in the prevention of infections. At MarSha MedSpa, we only use SkinPen, the first FDA approved microneelding device, during this procedure.
Microneedling with PRP will help soak in the growth factors into the skin for tightening and rejuvenation of the collagen in the face. The growth factors activate multi potent stem cells already in the skin into behaving how they would be expected to after an injury – leading to generation of new and younger tissue. This leads to development of new collagen, new blood vessels, and new fatty tissue to repair the skin, resulting in younger appearing skin. The addition of PRP from the blood enhances the effects of microneedling.
Microneedling with PRP has shown beneficial results of tightening and improved texture of skin on face, neck, decolletage, and hands. The full effects of the procedure take 2-3 months to reflect fully and last for up to 2 years.
