What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is the process of introducing hundreds of micro injuries into the skin in order to induce the body’s natural healing response to achieve a plumper and more rejuvenated appearance. Microneedling improves collagen production and also creates tiny channels in the skin that allow topical treatments to penetrate more deeply and be as effective as possible.
What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?
Platelet-rich plasma is a naturally occurring substance found in human blood. By drawing blood from your arm and putting it through a centrifuge, we are able to separate the growth-hormone rich PRP from its other components. The PRP can then be injected into injured tissue or smoothed over the face and chest to improve elasticity and skin tone while reducing the appearance of scars and common signs of aging.
What Are the Benefits of Microneedling with PRP?
While both microneedling and platelet-rich plasma are exceptional treatments that can offer dramatic results on their own, combining them into one treatment can maximize your potential results. The channels created in the upper layers of the skin by your microneedling procedure provide the PRP created from your blood with deeper access to subdermal tissue. By optimizing the absorption of platelet-rich plasma, we can ensure you achieve the best possible outcome from your procedure. Microneedling induces collagen production immediately following your session, while the PRP can help support your body’s natural production of elastin and collagen for up to 2 years.
What to Expect with Microneedling with PRP?
Your session is designed to be as comfortable as possible. First, your blood will be drawn from your arm and a topical anesthetic will be applied to your face. Your provider will separate the PRP while you wait for the numbing cream to work. Once your facial skin has been desensitized, you will undergo the microneedling portion of your treatment. Finally, the PRP will be smoothed over your face and you will wait for it to penetrate. You should avoid washing your face for as long as you can following your treatment, so the PRP can continue working.
What Is the Downtime for Microneedling with PRP?
There is no downtime required to heal from your microneedling with PRP treatment. You may experience some superficial redness or swelling immediately following your appointment, but this typically dissipates within a few hours. You may also feel a tightness in your skin or a stinging sensation that feels like you have sustained a sunburn, but this also typically goes away within a few hours. For the first few days following your session, support your skin’s healing by using only gentle cleansers and moisturizers, as well as a high-quality SPF to protect it from UVA and UVB rays when you are out in the sun.
Am I a Good Candidate for Microneedling with PRP?
Almost everyone can benefit from microneedling with PRP. Because it is a minimally invasive procedure, and it uses PRP created from your own blood, there is virtually zero risk of complication or negative side effects. Our microneedling and PRP can help address acne scars, aging concerns like fine lines and wrinkles, as well as texture issues and hyperpigmentation.
What Is the Cost of Microneedling with PRP?
The cost of microneedling with PRP vary depending on your exact needs and the number of treatments you may require to achieve your desired results. At Entre Nous Aesthetics in Menlo Park, our microneedling treatments start at $400, with PRP microneedling starting at $950. Rather than focusing only on cost, it is most important to find an experienced provider who can deliver the best results.
