PRP therapy is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment with quick recovery time, and is designed to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. The treatment actually involves the use of two procedures, micro-needling and PRP done consecutively.
Microneedling works by stamping the skin with multiple micro-needles that are contained in a sterile disposable head. The needles create micro injuries, which trigger the stimulation of collagen and creates mirochannels that allow active ingredients to penetrate into the skin.
The second procedure is PRP. Platelet Rich Plasma is produced from an individual’s own blood. After a blood sample is obtained from your arm like a normal blood test, the blood is spun in a centrifuge, which separates the platelet rich plasma from the blood.
PRP contains highly concentrated amounts of natural growth factors and other cytokines that promote the regeneration process of soft tissues. The PRP is applied directly to the skin following the microneedling to further stimulate the natural healing process and creation of collagen.
After the treatment, your skin will be slightly pink and feel slightly sunburned. For most people, your skin will completely recover in 24-72 hours. Your body’s collagen production usually takes about 4-8 weeks, so you will continue to see improvements over this time.
