How Platelet-Rich Plasma Enhances Your Microneedling Treatment

How Platelet-Rich Plasma Enhances Your Microneedling Treatment

Microneedling is an increasingly popular treatment option if you’re dealing with rough, dull, or scarred skin. This cosmetic procedure is effective against wrinkles, stretch marks, scars, acne, and large pores. Microneedling combined with regenerative medicine may be able to give you the clear, smooth, and healthy skin you've always wanted. 

Jordan Valley Dermatology Center in South Jordan, Utah, offers a wide range of dermatological services. Douglass Forsha, MD, and his team can improve the way your skin looks and feels with microneedling, either with or without regenerative medicine boosts. 

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment recommended for those dealing with problem skin, including:

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, stimulates the production of collagen in your skin. Throughout life, your skin produces collagen, a structural protein that keeps skin firm and glowing. However, as you age, collagen production slows way down, which results in wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin.

At Jordan Valley Dermatology Center, Dr. Forsha and his staff use the Eclipse MicroPen® system to make tiny, evenly distributed punctures across your skin's damaged surface. Because your skin creates an extra amount of collagen to heal itself when it gets cut or scraped, microneedling forces this healing reaction deep within your skin. 

What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment?

Your blood is made of lots of parts like red and white blood cells and platelets. Platelets provide your body with growth factors that help you heal. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy intensifies your body’s natural healing ability. Extracted platelets from your blood are then injected back into areas that need healing.

When Dr. Forsha injects a new supply of your platelets into your body, those specific areas get a boost of new tissue growth and repair. The blood plasma contains, among other things, platelets and growth hormones. These are gently inserted into the skin with fine needles. This enables the formation of new connective tissue and cell structure. Overall, your complexion becomes more fresh, youthful and firm. 

How do PRP and microneedling work together?

PRP and microneedling therapies in dermatology are important treatment techniques, especially in the areas of skin rejuvenation, reduction of acne scars and of pore size. In addition, the combination of PRP treatment with laser therapies, microneedling, and dermal fillers leads to additive effects, which lead to radical and advanced aesthetic results. 

The PRP procedure can be performed on the entire body, and the effect is extraordinary. Your skin becomes plumper and younger-looking, fine lines and wrinkles are reduced and the skin’s contours are reshaped for a youthful glow.
