Microneedling with PRP: The All-Natural, Surgery-Free Way to Take Years off Your Face

With modern advances in technology, it’s entirely possible to look as young as you feel. Microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has helped countless patients achieve their desired cosmetic results without long periods of downtime, invasive surgery, or breaking the bank. 

Arash Moradzadeh, MD, in Beverly Hills, California, offers highly effective, minimally invasive  microneedling procedures that deliver excellent results. We’ve outlined all the ins and outs of how microneedling works and why it works so well, so read on to learn more. 

It’s all-natural

Who knew the answer to anti-aging was hidden inside of? Blood is composed of many different components, two of which are plasma and platelets. Platelets contain hundreds of proteins and growth factors that are crucial in the healing of injured tissue.

PRP is blood plasma with a very high concentration of platelets, which increases healing. Because the platelets come directly from you, there is little risk of rejection or adverse reactions with the microneedling-PRP procedure.

How it actually works

The first step is microneedling the treatment area, which involves a special medical device that causes tiny micro-injuries under your skin’s surface. Those injuries stimulate the skin’s natural healing properties, boosting collagen and elastin production as a result. These proteins tone and firm up your skin.

In the second part of the procedure, Dr. Moradzadeh draws a small amount of your blood from your arm, placing it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and plasma from the red and white cells. Then he uses the cutting-edge Eclipse Micropen® to inject the platelets into the holes. Since the platelets contain growth factors, they, too, help with the healing and toning process. This combination process can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, rough skin texture, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation, among other things. 

Downtime? Forget about it.   

We’ve all got busy lives and jam-packed schedules. Who has time for downtime? That’s the beauty of microneedling. There’s virtually no downtime! You may experience some slight redness or soreness right after a treatment session, but Dr. Moradzadeh will likely give you some soothing lotion to temper that. 

You can drive home right after treatment and then resume your normal routine! 

Quick results

The results of the treatment are practically immediate. While you may experience some initial redness or bruising, these disappear quickly, and after two days or so, you’ll begin to notice a glow in your skin. Over the next few months, your skin will continue to improve as collagen production increases steadily. Dr. Moradzadeh may plan additional treatment sessions with you, depending on your aesthetic goals.
