PRP Facial Injection and Microneedling Therapy for a Full Facial Rejuvenation

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) uses your own growth factors from your own blood products to encourage new collagen growth for facial rejuvenation. PRP is created in the office by first removing a small sample of your blood. This sample is placed in a centrifuge and spun to put the blood in layers. The upper layers with the plasma and platelets are removed from the sample and used to inject the treatment areas of the face. After injecting PRP, the complete facial rejuvenation includes microneedling additional PRP serum into the skin.


PRP Therapy and Facial Rejuvenation: How it Works 

Kim Kardashian was one of the first celebrities to talk about Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, the method she swears by in order to achieve her flawless, unblemished skin. During the procedure, Dr. Lubben injects platelet-rich plasma into the various spots on the face that contain damaged tissue. PRP treatment stimulates the growth of newer and healthier cells while healing damaged skin tissue, so that facial skin can appear to look fresher and newer than ever before. PRP therapy is one of the best ways to bring about facial rejuvenation for a number of reasons.

PRP Treatment Grows New Cells While Healing Damaged Tissue 

Over time, facial skin becomes damaged and worn out. This is because the tissue that makes up the skin has been exposed to so many outside factors, leaving it thinned out and beat up. Fortunately, facial rejuvenation can be accomplished with great success while using PRP treatment. PRP treatment relies on platelet-rich plasma, which is injected into the face and stimulates a patient’s body to grow healthy and new cells. When the PRP is injected both into and around the parts of the facial skin that need replenishing the most, it jumpstarts and strengthens the healing process, so that fresh skin can shine through once the procedure is complete and recovery time has passed. Since platelet cells are the body’s natural response to soft tissue injury, it is the most efficient and effective treatment for facial rejuvenation. The platelet cells are filled with growing and healing factors, so they initiate repair and attract the important cells that are needed to heal the damaged facial skin and tissue. The PRP injections are delivering these platelets right into the affected areas, so it’s successful every time.

PRP Therapy Isolates and Activates a Patient’s Blood  

When Dr. Lubben performs PRP therapy for facial rejuvenation, he uses the patient’s own blood in order to obtain its growth factors. These growth factors are traditionally used to heal damaged tissue, so it makes perfect sense to utilize them for facial rejuvenation. During this process, Dr Lubben extracts about 2 teaspoons of blood. Platelet-rich plasma—which is ultimately a natural component of the body that contains proteins that boost cell growth—are isolated from the blood using a centrifuge. This advanced method gets the purest form of platelet-rich plasma from a person’s blood, and produces a high concentration of platelets. Isolating and activating the patient’s blood in this way also allows for a much more wholesome concentration of the most beneficial blood components. When it comes to facial rejuvenation, PRP therapy produces the best possible results with fewer inflammatory side effects, since the PRP mixture—derived from the patient’s own blood—is so pure.

The Benefits of PRP are Fast Acting for Facial Rejuvenation 

PRP treatment that’s used for facial rejuvenation usually targets the crinkling skin around the eyes, cheek, mid-face, jawline and neck. Once the PRP injections have been inserted into one or more of these targeted areas, it makes the healing process occur quicker than it normally would without the treatment. Because the tissue growth factors are more concentrated in the prepared growth injections, researchers think the body’s tissues may heal faster. Although the initial results that patients expect when they use PRP treatment for facial rejuvenation only come within a few weeks, the face’s youthful appearance will become increasingly restored as the healing process goes on. PRP therapy is proven to repair damaged facial tissue.

Microneedling with PRP

Microneedling uses precisely spaced micro-needles to create invisible, vertical, micro perforations into the top layers of the skin. As a result, the skin shifts its natural repair mechanism into high gear and starts producing collagen and elastin. The self-repairing property of the skin is a 100% natural form of skin renewal. PRP Skin Rejuvenation treatment is a modified form of microneedling. The use of PRP can augment this process, giving an overall skin rejuvenation with excellent results. In addition to being injected as described above, PRP can be used topically into the skin. When applied topically, we call this a “PRP Facial.” This allows your natural growth factors to enter the skin via the micro-channels created with the needling device. When injection and microneedling is combined, the process is augmented even further and can be a very powerful stimulator of you’re your own collagen.

Who is a candidate for PRP Microneedling Treatment?

Most patients can benefit from PRP microneedling, since it uses the patient’s own blood and there is little chance of irritation or reaction to harsh chemicals used in other treatments. Candidates should not have any open sores or skin conditions that would prevent them from receiving a skin treatment, as well as any blood conditions or use of blood thinners. Patients that benefit most from this treatment are those that show signs of aging, poor skin tone or texture, and scarring, since the skin’s natural regrowth process can improve these issues.

Skin conditions which can be treated with microneedling:

  • Acne or other scars

  • Fine lines & wrinkles

  • Loose skin

What happens during PRP Microneedling Treatment?

After both the treatment area and the donor area have been cleansed and prepared, the staff will draw a blood sample from the patient, according to how much PRP is needed for treatment. Then, the vials are placed in a centrifuge, which spins quickly to separate the blood cells from the plasma. The PRP is then injected into the treatment area of the face by Dr. Lubben. Finally the PRP is applied over the skin with the microneedling device. This causes the PRP to be absorbed deeply into the micro-channels in the skin for better rejuvenation. The skin is soothed and treated afterwards to prepare it for the short recovery period. Depending on the treatment area (the face, most commonly), this treatment can take around thirty minutes.

What can I expect after the Treatment?

The skin can become sensitive and red during the recovery period, and you’ll be instructed to use specific skincare products to ensure the skin can heal effectively. The overall recovery time lasts for three days for most patients, with the most severe redness disappearing within one to two days.

Benefits of Microneedling

  • Microneedling improves skin quality and texture

  • Eliminates blackheads, Treats acne

  • Exfoliates the skin

  • Revitalizes skin making it look young and glowing

  • Reduces hyperpigmentation

  • Decrease visibility of scars

  • Minimizes sun damage

  • Reduces pores

When will I see my Results?

Most patients notice results quickly, although the skin can feel rough and sandpapery during the recovery period as the skin heals. Once the skin rejuvenates, it can look and feel more youthful, soft, and glowing. You can repeat this treatment as needed on a schedule that you can determine during your consultation.

Aftercare Tips:

After you undergo microneedling, you need to take proper care of your skin. It is highly recommended that you avoid sun exposure. Make sure to cover your face when you step out in the sun. Do not apply any sunscreen. Apply only those products suggested by your doctor. Use a mild cleanser to clean the face. Avoid using skincare products which contain retinol and alpha-hydroxy acids because the skin is highly sensitive. Allow your skin to breathe and recover after the procedure. Avoid using makeup as the chemicals present in the cosmetics might cause irritation on the skin. Drink plenty of water after micro-needling to stay hydrated.

Microneedling is an effective and safe process which can enhance the appearance of the skin. It is impeccable in reducing wrinkles, tightening the sagging skin & diminishes scarring. Microneedling at home is popular and is considered a more comfortable option than the professional version but home treatment will not provide the desired result & will increase the risk of side effects.
