Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that is done to rejuvenate the skin using a MicroPen, a device that has fine needles. The benefits of microneedling are numerous, and it has been proven to be very effective.
In today’s world where there is a new innovation almost every single day, it isn’t a surprise that microneedling treatments have now been made even more effective. This has been achieved with the help of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). A combination of these two treatments is known as a Vampire Facial. Microneedling with PRP can be done on the face as well as the body.
MicroPen Treatment with PRP
The MicroPen is one of the latest innovations in aesthetic science. During a treatment, 12 tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin. They aid in the stimulation of elastin and collagen production, which helps in repairing the skin.
Platelet Rich Plasma contains abundant amounts of platelets with growth factors that are essential for healing wounds. When used to restore the skin, it helps the skin to repair itself naturally while helping to speed up the process.
First, a blood sample is taken from the patient. It is then processed so that Platelet Rich Plasma remains. After a microneedling treatment is completed, the PRP is applied on the surface of the skin. The microneedling creates deep and direct pathways to the skin, allowing the PRP to better absorb into the deep tissues. Thus, an ideal wound-healing scenario is created.
