PRP Q & A

What can I expect during a PRP microneedling appointment?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is the component in your blood that contains a high concentration of proteins, or growth factors. These growth factors have regenerative effects on your body at a cellular level, so they can be used for healing purposes. PRP triggers your body’s natural healing response so you can generate new skin tissue or regrow hair, among other medical uses, such as relieving pain in arthritic joints.

Aesthetically, PRP helps your skin look younger from the inside outward as it promotes the growth of new, healthy skin cells from within. The team at Nu You Wellness harness the power of platelet-rich plasma taken from your own blood for:

  • Microneedling
  • Hair restoration
  • Stretch mark removal
  • Scar removal

When your provider applies the PRP to your skin after a microneedling treatment, it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. For thinning hair, your provider applies the PRP directly to your scalp to promote new hair growth. And, for stretch marks and scar removal, PRP heals your skin by growing new tissue in place of damaged tissue.

What can I expect during a PRP microneedling appointment?

Microneedling with PRP is an aesthetic procedure in which a handheld device containing tiny needles creates miniscule wounds on the surface of your skin. Men and women typically get microneedling treatments to improve the tone and texture of their facial skin. When you receive a combination of microneedling with PRP, you get the maximum benefits for visible skin rejuvenation.

During your appointment, your provider draws a small amount of blood from your arm and processes it in a high-speed centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the other blood components. Next, you undergo the microneedling treatment so the device can create tiny puncture wounds in your skin.

Microneedling alone triggers your body’s healing response, and you begin generating new collagen to repair these tiny holes. When your provider at Nu You Wellness applies your blood with the high concentration of PRP directly to your skin after the microneedling treatment, the growth factors further stimulate your body’s healing response so you generate even more new collagen.

What can I expect after my PRP microneedling treatment?

Over the next few weeks, as your skin continues to heal itself from the treatment, you see a visible difference in the appearance of your skin, including:

  • A reduction in acne scars and blemishes
  • Firmer, smoother, even skin tone and texture
  • A reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Fewer visible age spots and sun damage
  • Healthier, younger-looking, supple skin
