What is the Procedure Like for Microneedling with PRP?
First, during your consultation at our Puyallup med spa, our provider will review your medical history and the areas that need to be treated based on your desires and needs. If you would like to know whether you are eligible to receive this treatment, please consult our professionals.
The extracted platelet-rich plasma is applied to the skin during the Microneedling procedure or injected into areas of the skin that needs treatment. The injection of the PRP is performed solely by own master physician injector, Dr. Ladie Arana-Domondon.
The procedure involves drawing blood from the patient and place it into a centrifuge, spun at a rapid rate to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood. Afterwards, we use the Eclipse MicroPen® to create controlled microscopic pinpoint wounds that act as a superficial micro-channel in the skin. The body responds by creating new elastin and collagen as part of the repair process resulting in appearance of skin texture improvement.
Therefore, Microneedling can be used with PRP or topical gels and serums to help improve the appearance of the epidermal layers of the skin.
