What is the difference, benefits, of using PRP?
Doctor Answers 3
PRP is your own growth factor vs synthetic
As for microneedling, I take this one step further, I use either energy based microneedling to deliver channels, or lasers in conjunction with PRP- this gives much better results than microneedling alone. Why? Because lasers and or energy microneedling stimulates more collagen AND provides access to PRP into your lower dermis.
All the best in your decisions.

Always use PRP with Microneedling
Microneedling will create access for platelets to enter the skin. Once the platelet are deep in the skin their granules are activated and wonderful things start to happen.
As your skin is healing, although this procedure has minimal downtime, the growth factors in a higher concentration that would normally be found induces extra collagen, new cells and increased normal vascularity of the skin. This has a profound effect of the look of our skin.
