Microneedling Q & A
What is microneedling?
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive treatment used to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars.
Collagen is a substance made by your body that provides suppleness to the skin, so you look youthful with firm, smooth, and pliable skin.
As you age, your production of collagen and elastin naturally decreases. Microneedling uses tiny needles to create controlled puncture wounds in the skin.
The puncture wounds stimulate the body to increase its own collagen and elastin production. The healing process increases the plumpness of your skin, which reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars.
What are the benefits of microneedling?
Microneedling is safe for most people, and it has proven to be an effective way to rejuvenate your skin. There is no downtime to the treatment, and it is a quick in-office procedure.
Microneedling can provide long-lasting results when performed by trained and experienced providers.
What is PRP?
Platelets are specialized cells found in your blood that release growth factors when they break down. Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is the part of blood that does not contain red or white blood cells.
PRP can be rubbed into the skin to treat hair loss, high inflammation, and tissue damage to improve the look and feel of your body.
At SWFL Dermatology Plastic Surgery & Laser Center, the providers recommend PRP treatments alongside microneedling. The PRP is injected into the same holes created during the microneedling, and the high concentration of platelets increases healing and reduces inflammation.
Who is a good candidate for microneedling with PRP treatment?
Microneedling with PRP is appropriate for all skin types and may be an option for you if you experience any of the following:
- Premature aging
- Lines and wrinkles
- Large pores
- Stretch marks
- Loose skin
- Hair loss
- Uneven skin tone
Your microneedling with PRP treatment takes 30-45 minutes. Before undergoing any cosmetic procedure, you should have a conversation with your provider to discuss your expectations and goals.
