Would you like to boost the results of your next skin treatment? Then, consider adding platelet-rich plasma (PRP)! Not only will PRP speed healing and recovery, but it may also significantly enhance the overall result you achieve with your procedure. Two popular treatments to add PRP to at Skin Artisans are SkinPen® Microneedling and laser resurfacing (MOXI™, HALO™, MicroLaserPeel™, and ProFractional®). Read on to learn why!


How Do Microneedling and Laser Resurfacing Rejuvenate Skin?

Collagen and elastin are two components of our skin crucial to its structure, volume, firmness, and elasticity. Unfortunately, beginning in our twenties, our natural reserves of collagen and elastin diminish, and the renewal rate slows. This combination causes our skin to lose volume, sag, and appear crepey over time.

Regenerative treatments, like microneedling and laser resurfacing, boost your natural collagen and elastin production by encouraging your skin’s wound-healing response. As these vital structural proteins renew during recovery, the skin heals smoother and firmer than before. Adding PRP to these treatments allows the skin to heal faster and heightens collagen and elastin’s renewal rate to get you better results!


What is PRP, and Why is it Special?

PRP is a component of your blood that can be extracted and used topically to help heal, repair, and rejuvenate your skin. It stimulates your body to produce powerful growth factors that accelerate collagen production and boost circulation. When used in conjunction with a treatment like SkinPen® or laser resurfacing, PRP can help you heal faster, enhance improvements to your skin’s smoothness and tone, and leave your complexion with a luminous, radiant glow!

PRP is unique because everyone, regardless of skin color, skin type, or skin concern, can benefit from it. That’s because there is no risk of allergic reaction or rejection when your own plasma is used. This makes PRP the perfect add-on if you desire to get more value from your next resurfacing treatment.


The Benefits of PRP with Microneedling and Laser Resurfacing

Both microneedling and fractionated laser resurfacing create tiny thermal injuries in your skin during treatment. These small channels prompt your skin to begin its biological wound-healing cycle that stimulates collagen and elastin production. When PRP is administered to the skin during a treatment like SkinPen® or HALO™, it travels down into these tiny channels, delivers potent growth factors, and helps oxygenate the skin. In turn, recovery time decreases, and the production of new collagen is boosted even further. That means faster healing and improved skin smoothness, texture, tone, and radiance!
