Want Younger-Looking Skin? Try Microneedling with PRP

Microneedling with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is an innovative and effective treatment for people interested in restoring and maintaining their skin’s youthful appearance. This cutting-edge combination offers impressive results, promoting younger-looking skin and addressing various dermatological concerns.

It’s one of the many nonsurgical anti-aging solutions that triple board-certified surgeon Dr. Gordon Sasaki and his team offer at Sasaki Advanced Aesthetic Medical Center in Pasadena, California.

Read more from Dr. Sasaki about the benefits and science behind microneedling with PRP and why it is becoming a go-to option for individuals seeking a rejuvenated and radiant complexion.

Understanding microneedling

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a device equipped with tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin.

These micro-injuries stimulate the body's natural healing process, prompting collagen and elastin production, the building blocks of healthy skin.

By encouraging the skin to regenerate itself, microneedling helps to improve texture, tone, and firmness and reduce the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.

The power of PRP

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentrated serum derived from the patient's blood. It contains a high concentration of platelets, growth factors, and other regenerative components that play a crucial role in tissue repair and regeneration.

When combined with microneedling, PRP enhances the treatment's effectiveness by delivering these potent growth factors directly to the targeted areas.

Benefits of microneedling with PRP

Dr. Sasaki, an internationally known educator and innovator in this field, notes there are many benefits of combining microneedling with PRP, including:

Stimulates collagen and elastin production

The combination of microneedling and PRP triggers the body's natural healing process, stimulating collagen and elastin production. This leads to improved skin texture, elasticity, and overall youthfulness.

Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles

The collagen and elastin fibers generated during the healing process plump up the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This can help restore a smoother and more youthful complexion.

Enhances skin tone and texture

Microneedling with PRP can significantly improve skin tone and texture, reducing the visibility of acne scars, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation. It promotes a more even skin tone and a smoother, healthier-looking surface.

Improves skin firmness

Microneedling with PRP can improve skin firmness and tightness by stimulating collagen synthesis and combating sagging and laxity. This can contribute to a more youthful and lifted appearance.

Minimally invasive with little downtime

Microneedling with PRP is a nonsurgical, minimally invasive procedure. Dr. Sasaki notes that the treatment is generally well-tolerated, and downtime is minimal. Patients can typically resume their regular activities shortly after the procedure, making it a convenient option for those with busy lifestyles.

Understanding the process

Microneedling with PRP begins with a simple blood draw, which is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the PRP from other components.

After obtaining the PRP, your Sasaki Advanced Aesthetics provider uses a handheld device to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin and introduce the PRP serum.

This action allows PRP to penetrate deeper and maximizes its regenerative effects. The tiny openings created by the microneedles also facilitate better absorption of the PRP, ensuring optimal results.
