Microneedling PRF treatments combine all the benefits of microneedling, such as increasing your body’s natural collagen and elastin production for tighter, smoother skin, with the special rejuvenating properties of platelet-rich fibrin. The platelets help heal your skin from the inside out, and the fibrin provides a scaffold-like base for the platelets to hold on to for better results.
Treatment & Results
During the treatment, the practitioner uses very tiny needles to puncture the skin in multiple places. It’s common for the skin to appear red, like a sunburn, after treatment for up to 48 hours. You may feel a tingling or numb sensation, but this is a no-downtime procedure, which means this won’t affect your daily activities.
The results from microneedling treatments take about a week to appear, and it’s common to need more than one treatment for optimum results. It’s recommended to wait 4 to 6 weeks between microneedling PRF treatments.
After your microneedling PRF treatment, it’s important to take extra care of your skin. Rinse your skin with lukewarm water and a very gentle cleanser for the first 72 hours. Your skin may appear drier than usual at first, so you may need to use a moisturizing serum to help support the healing process. Make sure to avoid sun exposure (use sunscreen!), tanning beds, swimming and exercise for the first 72 hours after treatment.
If you’re ready to turn back the clock and rejuvenate your skin, microneedling treatments with PRF can help with everything from fine lines and wrinkles to tightening and smoothing skin.
