Many people have heard of, or even experienced, the benefits of traditional microneedling treatments and the natural regeneration benefits of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections. At EternaMD, we combine these treatments to offer an even more powerful and effective way of harnessing revitalized and youthful skin.

What is Microneedling?

Made popular with celebrities for its noticeable and beautiful results, microneedling is a treatment designed to boost collagen production. During treatment, a pen-like device is moved across the skin while single-use microneedles create punctures. This elicits a strong wound-healing response, stimulating the creation of collagen and elastin in the skin. These micro-wounds also allow for deeper absorption of skin serums and products for optimal results.

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma is a treatment that derives itself from the patient’s own blood. A small vial is filled and placed in a centrifuge where it is separated, creating an isolated concentration of platelets and other growth factors that stimulate collagen growth. This concentration will then be applied to the skin following microneedling for full absorption. This treatment is used to reduce signs of aging and promote rejuvenation in one’s skin.

Why Choose PRP with Microneedling?

Microneedling facial usually includes a peptide gel or hyaluronic acid serum, but when combined with PRP, the wound healing effects are much faster. A microneedling PRP facial boosts cellular renewal and enhances the results of brighter more youthful-looking skin.

The benefits of combining the two treatments are long-lasting, as they stimulate collagen production, something that decreases as we age. Treatment is safe for all skin types, so it can help anyone who is looking for a treatment with the following:

  • Minimal downtime and recovery
  • Smoothing uneven skin texture and acne scars
  • Reduce the appearance of wrinkles
  • Establish a youthful new glow
  • Natural and minimally invasive treatment
