What is Microneedling with PRP?
Glow Aesthetics + Wellness offers microneedling, a process that punctures small holes in the skin on your face, neck, or torso to stimulate skin repair. As an extra benefit, your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be administered to the same region to help cells heal and enable the skin to grow new cells. These two procedures can reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, scars, dark spots, large pores, and other skin problems. The feel of your skin can be greatly improved to appear smoother and more even in tone without damaging the skin. If you'd like to learn more about the microneedling with PRP procedure, schedule a one-on-one consultation at our office in Wapello, IA.
what can I expect from Microneedling with PRP?
Prior to the microneedling section of your session, a member of our team will take a sample of your blood for your PRP collection. The blood will then be taken to our laboratory for the separation process where your platelets, growth factors, and stem cells will be made into PRP. For the microneedling therapy, Glow Aesthetics + Wellness uses state-of-the-art technology to make minuscule holes in your skin. The little needles used won't harm your skin but will instead help stimulate the production of collagen. Once the microneedling is complete, the PRP serum will be put on the epidermis to sink in. After the PRP is fully absorbed, we'll clear away the serum and clean your skin.
Following your microneedling with PRP therapy, you might encounter some normal effects, such as bruising, swelling, and redness. Our Glow Aesthetic team recommends that patients do not wear makeup, use abrasive face washes, or swim in a swimming pool for about 72 hours following the session. Activities like this can expose your skin to harsh bacteria and chemicals, which could cause adverse side effects. You also need to intentionally avoid sun exposure or use protective measures when planning to be outdoors. Final results are generally seen within the first month as the skin works to repair and heal itself.
