About Microneedling with PRP Therapy

What is microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive treatment that uses fine (micro) needles to help boost the skin’s natural collagen and elastin production.

More recently, microneedling has been used in conjunction with platelet-rich plasma – the body’s “fountain of youth” which has been shown to enhance the results and overall effectiveness of microneedling.

This treatment helps improve skin texture and firmness, reduces scarring and pigmentation, improves circulation, and helps promote collagen production.

Does microneedling hurt?

Microneedling is slightly uncomfortable, but is not extremely painful. At The Skinsmith Clinic, we use Dermapens and micro-needling devices which have been specially designed to reduce skin tearing and damage and cause the least amount of discomfort to the patient.

We do, however, apply a topical numbing cream for sensitive areas.

What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP)?

Platelet-rich plasma – the body’s “fountain of youth” - is created using a patient’s own blood cells. A small amount of blood is withdrawn from the patient and spun in a centrifuge which extracts the plasma (containing platelets and critical growth factors).

In microneedling with PRP therapy, the concentrated plasma is reintroduced back into the patient’s damaged, scarred, or problem areas using a Dermapen or a micro-needling device. The growth factors in the platelets trigger the body’s intrinsic healing processes and helps to reduce inflammation, boost collagen production, and naturally rejuvenate the skin.

Each microneedling with PRP treatment session usually takes around an hour and a half. Most treatment plans require four to six sessions in order for patients to fully benefit from the PRP therapy.

At The Skinsmith Clinic, each patient will be assessed, and given a customised treatment, management, and prevention plan based on their specific needs.
