PRP Microneedling

What Is Microneedling With Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that is used at deRMA Skin Institute in Guelph and Burlington, ON, primarily to minimize the signs of aging.

At deRMA Skin Institute in Guelph and Burlington, our microneedling and platelet rich plasma treatments use the microneedling device to stimulate increased collagen production while improving skin tone and texture. Call [pone] or request a consultation today to find out how microneedling with PRP can erase blemishes and repair skin damage!

During a standard session, your dermatologist uses a roller or special device with needles to puncture the skin and stimulate the production of new collagen. Because of this, microneedling is also known as “collagen induction therapy” or “percutaneous collagen induction.”

The platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which can be used as an injection or applied topically, is added to the microneedling treatment. It can improve healing and decrease the duration of the redness and swelling seen after microneedling.

Microneedling with PRP has been shown to improve results in those undergoing treatment for acne scars, fine wrinkles, and stretch marks.

How Does PRP Microneedling Work?

The PRP microneedling technique is done first with the extraction of blood from the patient from which we will extract the plasma, which is rich in platelets and growth factors.

Once the autologous plasma has been obtained, it will be reintroduced into the area that the patient wishes to improve, using a series of small punctures (microneedling), with a technique similar to that used in facial mesotherapy.

The PRP, or platelet rich plasma, and growth factors regenerate tissues and are responsible for skin rejuvenation.

What Does PRP Microneeding Treat?

Traditional microneedling is used to treat everything from age spots and wrinkles to scars and certain forms of hyperpigmentation. Although microneedling can be used to treat scars and stretch marks on other areas of the body, most of the studies with PRP and microneedling deal with acne scars on the face.

PRP may increase these effects and help you achieve the desired results faster.

The PRP Microneedling Treatment

The actual procedure consists of two steps.

  • The microneedling part lasts approximately 30 minutes, depending on the areas treated. During this time, Dr. Sajic will place a professional-grade dermis roller or approved other device on the desired areas of your face.
  • A syringe of blood will be drawn, usually from your arm, while your face is numb. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge, which separates the PRP from other components of the blood.
  • The PRP solution is then massaged into the treatment area, usually after microneedling. The microneedling treatment creates small, controlled micro-punctures in the skin, allowing the PRP to penetrate.

In the past, PRP was injected into the skin, but it is becoming more and more common to use it in conjunction with microneedling.

How Long Is The Recovery Period?

Recovery for this procedure is relatively quick. You can go back to school or work the next day if you want. There may still be some redness and other signs of minor irritation, and avoid applying too many products to your skin. You should avoid alcohol-based products and scrubs during the recovery stage.

Simply cleanse once a day and hydrate as needed. If desired, follow with a light foundation or powder to minimize redness. We at deRMA Skin Institute may also recommend or provide products to help your skin heal.

Note: Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) microneedling combines three treatments in one. If you want to reduce wrinkles, firm skin, or reduce acne scars, you will see exceptional results with this treatment, no matter your skin type!
