Can You Combine RF Microneedling And PRP?

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Skin Care

Platelet rich plasma is often combined with microneedling to provide better results and increase the quality of the skin. Other forms of microneedling, such as radiofrequency microneedling, provide the same results as traditional microneedling, but can also help tighten skin. Therefore, can you combine RF microneedling and PRP?

Yes, RF microneedling and PRP can complement each other. When applied during or after an RF microneedling session, PRP can help increase and improve the collagen response. Some worry that PRP after radiofrequency microneedling may cause extra irritation. This is unlikely since PRP comes from your own body and contains no added chemicals.

PRP can help soften the skin and reduce inflammation. They can also improve the overall quality of the skin. Platelet rich plasma can treat wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, skin tone, and skin texture. This makes it a great addition to RF microneedling to improve and supercharge the results.

PRP Microneedling vs. RF Microneedling

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Skin Care

Microneedling has seen massive evolutions since it became popular in the early 2000s. First, the addition of platelet rich plasma led to faster healing and could reduce the number of treatments needed to see results. More recently the addition of radiofrequency technology allows microneedling to become even more effective and powerful. So, which is better: PRP microneedling vs. RF microneedling?

Both PRP microneedling and RF microneedling can provide fantastic results. Patients who are a good candidate for one are also likely a candidate for the other. So, how do you choose? Your master esthetician will help you determine which will benefit your skin most, but let’s look at the major differences between the two procedures. 

PRP microneedling supercharges traditional microneedling and helps rejuvenate your skin quicker and better. It is great for addressing surface and just below the surface damage and scarring. Radiofrequency technology is already used to mildly tighten sagging skin. RF microneedling offers some skin tightening qualities that traditional and PRP microneedling do not offer. 

Radiofrequency energy also penetrates deeper into the skin. Therefore, for deeper sun damage, scarring, and concerns, RF microneedling may be the better choice.
