PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy and Dermaroller (microneedling) are both popular choices when it comes to skin rejuvenation. The remarkable results of the treatments are often seen throughout the beauty world as well as among ‘A listers’. Not only do these treatments create fantastic results on their own but once combined the results from working together are phenomenal. Here we look at each procedure in PRP vs Dermaroller and the benefits of combining the two into your patients treatment plan.
First things first, lets understand them a bit better…
What is PRP and how does it work?
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy otherwise known as PRP is a natural treatment used to rejuvenate the skin. The results show a fresher, brighter appearance.
The treatment uses the bodies own growth factors to promote healthier younger skin. Using the Cellenis system, blood is drawn and then spun in the centrifuge machine which separates the platelet-poor plasma and platelet-rich plasma.
The clear (good) plasma is re-injected back into the skin which stimulates soft tissue rejuvenation. This wakes up the bodies own repair process which stimulates new elastin and collagen.
Platelet rich plasma therapy is suitable for all skin types and recovery time is little. Due to the nature of the treatment, no chemicals are used, only the bodies own repair system to promote healthier skin with long lasting results.
What is Microneedling and how does it work?
Microneedling therapy is a treatment that stimulates the skin to repair itself safely and naturally. The roller contains clinically proven micro needles which when rolled over the skin cause minimally invasive puncturing and pin point bleeding, The body is then alerted and begins it’s healing process by sending collagen to the surface of the skin to repair the ‘damage’.
This influx of collagen begins to fix certain problems in that area;
- Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Minimising acne scarring
- Refreshing the skin
The benefits of combining
Both of the treatments work wonders on the skin by using a natural approach to skin rejuvenation. Although they may sound similar they work in different ways to achieve maximum results. Combining both therapies allows them to work hand in hand together to achieve maximum effect.
Both treatments work by controlled wounding of the skin which in turn stimulates collagen, elastin and fibroblast activity. The added growth factors from the PRP then intensify when combined with Dermaroller.
Dermaroller and PRP also carry great benefits when combined with other skin therapies. Making them a great component in your skin care regime.
Patients undergoing these treatments can see results such as:
- Reduction of fine lines & wrinkles
- Smoother skin appearance
- Reduction of scars
- Skin rejuvenation
- Even skin tones
- Lightening of hyper-pigmentation & skin tone
- Pore appearance reduction
- Glowing, fresher skin
