Microneedling with PRP Q & A
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment the Estea Medspa team has used for years because it’s safe and effective. During this treatment, your Estea Medspa provider moves a specialized device over the surface of your skin. This device has a series of microneedles. As it moves, those microneedles create tiny pinpricks on the surface of your skin.
Your body registers these pinpricks as injuries and goes to work healing them. Specifically, it starts to produce new, healthy skin cells, and more collagen, the protein that keeps your skin tight and smooth.
As a result, microneedling can:
- Even your skin tone
- Reduce the appearance of acne scars
- Shrink pores
- Improve skin elasticity
- Reduce the appearance of age spots
- Minimize fine lines and wrinkles
What’s more, there’s no downtime with this treatment.
But the team at Estea Medspa doesn’t stop there. For better results, they combine microneedling with PRP.
What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a solution that your Estea Medspa provider gets by taking a very small sample of your blood and placing it in a centrifuge. With this process, they’re able to separate the platelets from the other components of your blood, creating PRP.
Your platelets are rich in growth factors, which your body uses to trigger regeneration whenever you get hurt. The PRP has an extremely high concentration of these growth factors, making it ideal for stimulating and supporting the creation of new, healthy tissue.
Why combine microneedling with PRP?
By applying PRP after microneedling, your Estea Medspa provider allows the growth factors to penetrate into the deeper layers of your skin through the tiny channels the microneedling creates. As the growth factors arrive, they support the regenerative work the microneedling started, helping you get better results from your treatment.
In addition to microneedling with PRP, the Estea Medspa team also offers microneedling with stem cells from Regeneris Medical®. Stem cells also contain growth factors and can deliver similarly dramatic skin rejuvenation. Talk with your Estea Medspa provider to determine if PRP, stem cells, or a combination of the two with microneedling is best to help you reach your skin goals.
