Microneedling is a proven cosmetic procedure for rejuvenating the skin. It makes use of fine needle rollers for creating micro wounds on the skin. The synergistic effects of this treatment are substantial when combined with PRP (plasma rich platelets) therapy. Microneedling device will trigger the production of new collagen while the PRP growth factors get working on the deeper tissue layers through the fine needle pricks made in the skin. EllEve Med Spa provides PRP Microneedling to fight aging signs to patients in Woodland Hills, San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, California, and surrounding locations.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin renewal process which stimulates the skin’s inner repair and healing mechanism. It also helps in generating fresh collagen for volumizing the skin in a sustainable fashion. Additional skin rejuvenation benefits are achieved when PRP is applied to the skin. PRP is a natural blood component. PRP platelets play the role of clotting blood, which is necessary for healing of wounds and injuries. PRP is rich in platelet count as it contains cytokines, proteins and other growth factors. These elements promote repair and renewal of skin tissue. Cellular regeneration is at its most effective when PRP and microneedling are performed together.
