Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Microneedling Microneedling is among the more popular cosmetic procedures for rejuvenating the facial skin with the help of fine needle rollers that create micro punctures on the skin. The synergistic effects of this treatment when combined with plasma rich platelets (PRP) therapy are substantial. The microneedling device, on one hand, triggers the production of new collagen in the skin. On the other hand, the PRP growth factors get to go all the way into the deeper tissue layers through fine needle pricks. EllEve Med Spa provides facial rejuvenation with platelet rich plasma (PRP) with microneedling to patients in Woodland Hills, San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, California, and surrounding communities.
Microneedling MechanismMicroneedling is a minimally invasive skin renewal treatment by itself that stimulates the repair mechanism of the skin and promotes inner healing. It also helps in generating fresh collagen fibers for a more sustainable volumizing of the skin. Additional skin enhancement benefits are promoted when PRP, a natural blood component, is applied with the fine needle roller treatment. PRP contains platelets that help in blood clotting. This is essential for the healing of wounds and injuries. It also contains growth factors, such as cytokines and proteins. These elements are useful in promoting skin tissue renewal and repair. Cellular regeneration is effective when PRP and microneedling are performed together at a qualified medical spa.

Efficacy Established by Research StudiesThe efficacy of microneedling with PRP medical spa treatment for skin blemishes and acne scars was shown in a 2016 research study. A trial study with 50 people was conducted for observing the results of microneedling (without PRP) on acne scars. The study found an improvement of 46% with the treatment. The same group was again treated after that with microneedling in combination with PRP. This showed an improvement of 62% in the acne scars. The participants involved in the study did not report any lasting or serious side effects. In 2019, another review involving microneedling with PRP for improving the appearance of acne scars was performed. Results of several research studies were taken into account in this review. The review showed the following benefits of microneedling with PRP:
- Significant improvement in acne scars
- Shorter downtime as compared to standalone microneedling
- Greater satisfaction
