Thoroughly Revitalize Your Facial Skin With PRP Microneedling in Austin

If you’re interested in reducing facial blemishes and restoring your skin’s youthful glow, you may have heard of a cutting-edge cosmetic treatment called microneedling. While microneedling is an effective, minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment, some patients are looking to give their complexion an even greater boost. At Austin Cosmetic Medspa, we offer an advanced version of microneedling treatment called PRP microneedling.

What Is PRP Microneedling?

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) microneedling is a revolutionary cosmetic treatment used to help patients achieve healthy, radiant facial skin and reduce various imperfections, such as uneven skin tone, spider veins, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and enlarged pores.

Just like traditional microneedling, our PRP microneedling treatment utilizes the special SkinPen device, which uses tiny needles to create micro-channels in the targeted skin. This stimulates the generation of new, healthy skin cells as well as increased collagen production, leading to smoother, more youthful-looking skin. Once these tiny channels have been created, platelet-rich plasma from the patient’s own blood is injected into the treated tissue, speeding up and enhancing the healing process for quicker, more impressive results. Platelet-rich plasma is simply plasma from the blood containing a high concentration of platelets, which are rich in growth factors and cytokines.

What to Expect During Your PRP Microneedling Treatment

The first step of your PRP microneedling treatment will be a private consultation with one of our skilled aesthetic professionals. They’ll ask you about your current health, medical history, and aesthetic goals to ensure that you’re a good candidate for the procedure and to create a customized treatment plan.

Before the treatment begins, a topical numbing cream will be applied to your skin in the targeted area. Blood will also be drawn from your arm and spun through a centrifuge to separate out the platelet-rich plasma.

During the treatment, your provider will run the SkinPen microneedling device over your skin, where the tiny needles will penetrate to specific depths based on your needs and goals for the procedure. Once the micro-channels have been created, the PRP from your blood will then be injected into the tissue, where it will “bathe” the cells and enhance the healing process.

Once the PRP microneedling treatment is finished, you’ll be able to leave the clinic and head home immediately.

PRP Microneedling Recovery and Aftercare

After your PRP microneedling treatment, you may experience some mild swelling, redness, and general skin irritation. You should have no problem resuming your normal routine almost immediately, but it’s best to avoid direct sun exposure for a few days. You should also wait at least 24 to 48 hours before engaging in strenuous exercise.

Who Is a Good Candidate for PRP Microneedling?

If you’re an adult seeking powerful, minimally invasive skin rejuvenation, PRP microneedling could be the right treatment for you. The treatment is a great option for individuals who are interested in microneedling but wish for quicker, more dramatic results. Usually, the best candidates for PRP microneedling are experiencing fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and/or other skin imperfections. However, the treatment can also be an effective option for younger individuals looking to preserve their smooth, vibrant skin.

Ideal candidates for PRP microneedling should also meet the following criteria:

  • Have reasonable expectations
  • Be in generally good physical health
  • Not be currently pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Have no active skin infections
