Microneedling is a treatment that uses a collection of very fine needles to shallowly penetrate your skin. Microneedling can improve your skin’s health and appearance when using it on your face, chest, hands, and other areas. You can also apply it to your scalp for increased hair growth.
The team at Micari Aesthetics often uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) with microneedling to enhance the effect. PRP is created using a sample of your own blood collected via a blood draw. The team can isolate blood platelets from other components like red and white cells by processing the blood in a centrifuge.
Blood platelets release growth factors to aid in healing, so microneedling with PRP is an excellent treatment choice for scars and other blemishes on your skin. During treatment, the team carefully needles your skin using a handheld device and applies PRP over your skin’s surface.
Microneedling improves your skin by promoting the growth of a protein called collagen. Collagen keeps your skin firm and taut, but you lose some of it as you age. This leads to wrinkles, scars, and sagging.
Collagen takes time to develop after a microneedling treatment, so the results aren’t visible immediately. However, over time, you’ll see fewer:
You can consult with the team at Micari Aesthetics about the areas of skin you want to target and the frequency of your treatments. They can also help you decide if you want to get standard microneedling or if you would prefer a PRP facial.
Aside from collagen stimulation, microneedling has a few other abilities, too. One of them is increasing hair growth in areas where your hair is thinning or falling out. While it’s not an effective treatment for every type of hair loss, microneedling with PRP can stimulate dormant hair follicles to promote hair restoration.
Microneedling with PRP may also increase hair growth by bringing more blood circulation to the targeted area to nourish your follicles.
