Skin rejuvenation with microneedling is a good treatment option and has many benefits for Skin Rejuvenation. This being said, the results can be vastly improved with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment. Microneedling alone works by increasing your skin’s natural production of new collagen scars and wrinkles. Poorly aligned collagen is associated with wrinkles, acne scarring and stretch marks. Micro-needling is used to treat the superficial surface of the skin and reduces the signs of ageing by stimulating new collagen via micro-trauma.
Nowadays, microneedling is commonly used in conjunction with Platelet Rich Plasma (aka “Vampire Lift”). This is because platelet rich plasma releases by active growth factors which are important for new tissue regeneration and cellular functions. This again involves the stimulation of new tissue collagen which is ultimately needed for improve skin health and condition.
Growth factors come in many different varieties and are extremely present in platelets, which are the small cellular particles in our blood that clot up small blood vessels when we get cut. When platelets are activated they release many important ingredients which have a wide release of growth factors. It is these growth factors that attract stem cells to the area of tissue damage.
Although microneedling is good for superficial skin rejuvenation, for platelets to be affective - they need to be injected into the skin, at which point, they will become activated and release their bio active ingredients. Platelets growth factors would be of no benefit if just rubbed on the skin.
The growth factors in high concentrations induce collagen stimulation, new cell regeneration and increased normal vascularity of the skin. This has a profound effect of the look of our skin. Typically a course a microneedling and PRP treatment sessions are required to achieve the results you want. Each is performed every 3-4 weeks, and downtime is minimal. Usually results can continue to improve for 8 to 12 weeks and beyond, remembering that this is a biological treatment with a biological process. Maintenance treatment can then be performed as and when.
