Revitalize with PRP Microneedling

PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, has long been used by doctors for its curative properties. PRP helps the body regenerate healthy tissue and heal itself, using the platelets contained in a patient’s own blood. PRP has also been shown as an effective tool for hair loss. We combine PRP with microneedling to improve skin texture and tone, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and add volume to the face.

How Does PRP Treatment Work?

You may have heard of ‘vampire facials,’ made popular by social media and reality tv. Thankfully, PRP microneedling is a lot less dramatic than it may seem. A small amount of blood is taken from the patient and then purified in a centrifuge. 

After the purification process, the blood is applied to the target area through tiny entry points in the skin created by microneedling. The microneedling process triggers the body’s natural healing process, and the PRP further helps with healing as well as tissue regeneration. For best results, most patients require a series of PRP microneedling sessions.

Recovery From PRP Therapy

For most patients, PRP microneedling does not require a recovery process, and it is normal for patients to return to normal activity the next day. For some, two to three days of rest may be advised. Redness and mild skin irritation are common side effects, but these disappear quickly. 

In some cases, it is recommended that patients reduce the frequency of facial washing and avoid skin care products with alcohol until fully healed. Your expert aesthetic provider will provide detailed aftercare instructions to you, and answer any questions you may have.

What Exactly is Plasma?

Plasma is a key part of blood that transports nutrients, oxygen, and other essentials to the body’s cells and tissues. Plasma also regulates pH balance, blood pressure, and the immune system.  It has high levels of platelets and growth factors, which are necessary for tissue regeneration and wound healing. Plasma contains growth factors, anti-inflammatory properties, and other components that make it a powerhouse rejuvenator. 

Does PRP Microneedling Hurt?

PRP Microneedling is not painful, though some discomfort may be felt. Our experienced aesthetic nurses can apply numbing agents to make the process as smooth as possible. Some areas of the face, neck, and chest are more sensitive than others, and our nurses are careful to always perform the procedure with the utmost gentleness. Most patients report that the procedure feels like sandpaper lightly rubbing across the face. 

What Results Can I Expect?

After a session of PRP microneedling in Austin with our team, you will have a radiant, hydrated, and younger-looking skin texture and tone. Fine lines will be noticeably reduced, and in some cases, gone entirely. Acne scars, big pores, and age spots will diminish. Some will notice changes within a few days, while others may require multiple treatments to see optimal results, as mentioned previously.
