The idea of having tiny needles plunged into your skin might sound scary, but the microneedling procedure is only minimally invasive and can have some fantastic results. As per Meridiem DermSpa, microneedling with PRP can help to improve or manage a number of skin conditions, including fine lines and deeper wrinkles, skin texture, scarring (including surgical scars and acne scars), large pores, sun-damaged skin, stretch marks, and aging skin.
PRP is often used alongside microneedling to help improve and enhance results further. According to Meridiem DermSpa, “studies have shown that PRP can expedite the healing process of tissues and reduce the appearance of pigmentation and acne scarring when used with microneedling.” PRP uses your own blood, which reduces the risk of the plasma being rejected or causing an allergic reaction. What makes PRP so useful is that it contains a combination of proteins that can be used to help activate cell migration and encourage collagen and elastin production.
According to Medical News Today, microneedling with PRP tends to be more expensive than regular microneedling. However, the skin can heal more quickly as a result of using PRP.
