All You Need to Know About Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Dry and itchy skin is a common complaint during fall. The skin tends to lose too much water and oil when the humidity is low. Before the skin condition worsens, it is best to have revitalizing treatments such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for added protection and resilience against the elements.

What is PRP Therapy? 


PRP is a safe, biocompatible treatment because the plasma with natural growth factors is extracted from your own blood to promote the skin’s healing process. 

You can safely receive PRP therapy in Coral Gables at a qualified med spa for facial tissue regeneration and skin renewal. The therapy can help reverse or mitigate the signs of facial aging, such as saggy facial skin, minor wrinkles and fine lines, and eye bags. 

PRP growth factors will set off the fresh production of collagen fibers and build new capillaries while supporting cellular renewal in the treated sites. You can be a candidate for this therapy, regardless of your skin type and age. PRP therapy is most effectively performed with microneedling to rejuvenate and restore a more supple and youthful skin texture.

Benefits of PRP Treatment with Microneedling 


When PRP treatment was initially introduced, the therapists would directly inject it into the affected areas of the face. But over time, researchers have found that the benefits of PRP treatment can be amplified when it is performed in conjunction with microneedling. 

The treatment provider will use tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin, which can induce collagen production to add volume, strength, and flexibility to the skin tissue.

To accelerate the healing and rejuvenation process, the provider will then inject PRP into the treated tissue. PRP therapy in Coral Gables can be combined with microneedling to treat various exposed areas of the body apart from the face. These may include the neck, hands, arms, legs, décolleté, back, and abdomen.

Some of the specific benefits of PRP therapy with microneedling include: 

  • Reduces the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles
  • Narrows or closes the enlarged pores
  • Removes broken capillaries
  • Lessens the appearance of spider veins
  • Heals acne scars
  • Provides a fresh glow and even skin tone
  • Lightens the sunspots
  • Gives a smoother and firmer skin texture

What is PRP Therapy Procedure? 


With microneedling, PRP therapy can be performed in two quick steps. The first step is microneedling, which can be completed in about 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the area of treatment. This procedure will create tiny and controlled micro-punctures in the skin tissue, which makes it easier for the effective penetration of PRP. 

The provider will draw a small amount of blood from the arm and put it through a centrifugal process to separate PRP from other blood components. This PRP solution is then gently massaged into the treated sites where microneedling has been performed. 

Alternatively, PRP can be delivered through small needles or injections, depending on the skin condition. Once the procedure is completed, your provider will apply a serum or cream to help soothe any irritation or redness.
