What Is Microneedling, and How Does It Work?
Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation technique that pierces the skin with small needles, allowing new collagen to develop. To decrease the appearance of fine lines, scars, and wrinkles, this process takes advantage of your skin’s inherent healing potential. Microneedling is a simple, minimally invasive technique that may be done in as little as 15 minutes. This technique is ideal for those who want to minimize the appearance of small wrinkles or cure acne scars.
To achieve optimal results, most patients require a series of three to five microneedling treatments scheduled a month apart. Patients experience visible results four to six weeks following the last treatment.
What Is Microneedling Plasma Therapy?
Microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or plasma concentrate therapy is a cosmetic technique that involves rolling tiny needles across the skin and injecting platelets, which are a component of blood, into the treated area. Platelets found in plasma help in blood clotting and are thus necessary for wound and trauma healing. Platelet concentrated plasma is plasma that contains a higher concentration of platelets than other blood components.
Microneedling may be more successful when used in conjunction with PRP therapy. When combined with microneedling, plasma concentrate has been shown to accelerate tissue regeneration and reduce the appearance of pigmentation and acne scars.
What Skin Problems May Benefit from Microneedling with Plasma?
Following a microneedling with plasma treatment, you can expect smoother, healthier, glowing skin as the treatment targets:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Dull, lifeless complexion
- Skin discoloration, including melasma
- Uneven skin tone
- Acne, surgical, or other scarring
- Reduced skin elasticity
- Enlarged pores
What Will Your Treatment Experience Be Like?
A practitioner will take a blood sample and use a centrifuge, a spinning apparatus, to separate the PRP from the rest of the blood. PRP contains growth factors. These growth factors help skin tissue regenerate itself.
A practitioner will next use microneedling equipment to create minute holes in the skin’s surface. They will then employ plasma.
Following your microneedling treatment, your skin may appear slightly pink to red for 24 to 48 hours, then your skin may flake or peel. It’s important to keep your skin moisturized during this time.
When Can I Expect to See the Outcomes of Microneedling Treatment?
When it comes to the outcome of your therapy, the most important thing to remember is to be patient. Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy since it trains your body to produce new, strong collagen. This is a normal procedure that will take some time. As a result, patients should expect their skin to continue to improve in the weeks after their therapy. If your aesthetic goal is facial rejuvenation, it may take at least two months, or two sessions, to achieve the desired results.
How Many Sessions Will Be Required?
An individual will receive a different number of treatments. Microneedling with plasma may take several sessions to be effective. Larger scars may take longer to heal. Keep in mind that, depending on your cosmetic objectives, three to six treatments separated by four weeks may be required. As a result, you may have to wait up to six months to see the final results of scar or stretch mark removal.
