What Are the Benefits of Using PRP with Microneedling?

Collagen depletion and sun damage are like a gradual one-two punch that can transform a youthful, resilient complexion into dull, uneven skin marked by signs of aging. 

 Luckily, combining two powerful, all-natural skin-renewing techniques — microneedling and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) — into one “ultimate anti-aging facial” is all it takes to trigger collagen renewal, reverse sun damage, and improve the appearance of: 

Board-certified physician Dr. Nidal Hasan and our team at Cosmetico MedSpa specialize in using microneedling with PRP to address a full scope of skin rejuvenation desires, from minimizing common signs of aging and sun damage to scar reduction

Here, we explore how microneedling revitalizes your skin — and how PRP takes the process to the next level. 

Collagen induction therapy basics 

Microneedling involves rolling a specialized, pen-like device fitting with tiny, sterile needle tips across the surface of your skin to create a series of uniform “microchannels.” 

Also known as collagen induction therapy, this simple yet highly effective skin renewal treatment triggers a cascade of natural healing responses within your epidermal tissues — including a complexion-revitalizing influx of new collagen and elastin proteins.

Collagen is the durable protein that gives your body cells their structure, strength, and stability. As the main building block of healthy, youthful skin, collagen is sometimes called the “cement that holds everything together.” Elastin is the complementary protein building block that gives your skin optimal laxity, keeping it both taut and supple.  

By prompting your epidermal tissues to ramp up their production of collagen and elastin, microneedling helps restore healthier, stronger, smoother, and more resilient skin that forms the foundation of a supple, youthful-looking complexion. 

The power of platelet-rich plasma 

While microneedling can work wonders as a stand-alone treatment, combining it with PRP can elevate your skin renewal results from excellent to extraordinary. 

PRP is a concentrated serum of regenerative platelets made by spinning a small sample of your blood in a high-velocity centrifuge machine. As your blood is processed this way, the platelets separate from the plasma and white and red blood cells, rising to the top of the vial to create a layer of “liquid gold.”  

Platelets are powerful because they contain hundreds of growth factors and other bioactive substances that stimulate rapid cellular proliferation and tissue renewal. When combined with microneedling, these potent growth factors effectively supercharge the collagen and elastin remodeling process.  

We deliver your skin-boosting PRP serum to your deepest dermal layers through the tiny epidermal channels we create through microneedling — we simply smooth your PRP serum across the microchannel openings and allow it to seep down to the foundation of your skin, where it actively stimulates deep collagen growth and enduring elastin renewal.
