PRP Micro-needling process guide:
This facial treatment comprises only a few steps. The procedure is not that complicated and is finished in an hour approximately. These steps are explained below:
- Skin Prep Pre-Operation:
The face of the patient is thoroughly cleansed of all sorts of dirt particles before the treatment.
- Extraction Of a Blood Sample
A 5 to 15-milliliter sample of blood is taken from the arm using an injection or a needle. This blood is then sealed into a vile.
- Centrifuging the Blood Sample
The blood sample is then placed into a centrifuge and spun for about 15 minutes. During the spinning process, a concentration of Platelet-Rich Plasma is created. These platelets generate growth factors, which promote tissue healing and repair as well as the body’s normal collagen renewal process.
After cleaning the patient’s skin, a mild numbing lotion or ointment is administered to the affected region. The numbing solution is administered in order to lessen the pain that may be caused through the micro-needling procedure.
A 2 mm deep incision is made into the target skin region by gliding the micro-needling device over the skin.
Collagen begins to accumulate beneath the skin being treated as a result of the needling procedure. The stimulated collagen then starts working to get rid of age signs such as fine lines, wrinkles and other skin issues such as skin texture, scar marks and various spots from hyperpigmentation.
- Administering PRP to the skin
Following the application of the PRP concentration, the target region is re-needled, allowing the Platelet Rich Plasma to permeate into the skin via the punctures. PRP helps in enhancing the effects of micro-needling. The benefits of micro-needling are enhanced with PRP.
The growth factors from PRP start to work right away, activating the skin’s pre-existing multipotent stem cells. The process of needling causes the healing process to accelerate. In response to this accelerated activity, the skin thickens and swells, and begins to treat the pigmentations, lines, scars, and wrinkles.
What To Do Post-Op?
It is important to follow some aftercare guidelines to ensure that the healing process of the skin goes smoothly and in order to attain optimum results from the treatment. The guidelines below are necessary to be followed after the PRP micro-needling procedure:
- Avoid going out in the sun. This is because post-treatment, the skin is very sensitive and direct sun exposure can cause a lot of damage to it.
