PRP microneedling is a cosmetic skin treatment that combines two popular skin rejuvenation methods for enhanced results. During a typical microneedling procedure, your Luminance Laser Spa provider uses a specialized device with tiny needles to make holes in your skin. Your skin responds to these pinpricks as injuries and produces collagen to heal them quickly.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a substance derived from your own body. Your doctor draws some of your blood and places it into a machine that spins quickly to separate its components. One of those components, your platelets, jump in to help your body heal each time you get an injury. They’re responsible for clotting your blood to help it form scabs and promote new cell regeneration to replace cells that are damaged or missing.
PRP injections after microneedling boost the effects of the microneedling by speeding up the healing process. The combined treatments work together to rejuvenate your skin and even continue the healing of old scars.
