How Microneedling with PRF Works
This therapy is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment with quick recovery time, and is designed to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. The treatment actually involves the use of two procedures, micro-needling and PRF (platelet rich fibrins) done consecutively.
First Procedure: Micro-Needling
The first procedure is called Micro-Needling. A small hand held, automatic device that contains tiny micro-needles is passed over the skin creating tiny micro-wounds, or channels, on the skin. During the body’s natural wound-healing process of these channels, collagen and elastin are automatically produced.
Second Procedure: PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrins)
The second procedure is called PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrins). Platelet Rich Fibrins is a growth factor rich substance derived from your own blood to promote skin rejuvenation. After a blood sample is obtained from a patient, the blood is put into a centrifuge, which is a tool that separates the PRF from the blood. The blood is spun for approximately 15 minutes.
PRF contains highly concentrated amounts of natural growth factors and other cytokines that promote the regeneration process of soft tissues. The PRF is applied directly to the channels that were created from the micro-needling to further stimulate the natural healing process and creation of collagen.
