One of the leading reasons you develop fine lines, wrinkles, and loose skin on your face, neck, and body is declining collagen and elastin production within the skin. In addition to signs of aging, many individuals deal with visible blemishes, damage, and skin conditions that worsen their skin’s health and appearance. In these instances, two popular choices of non-invasive cosmetic treatments to minimize skin damage and aging signs are PRP and microneedling treatments.
You may want to consider the various advantages of combining the two approaches with PRP microneedling in West Hills. For instance, you could enjoy more notable and longer-lasting cosmetic improvements with a shorter recovery period and fewer side effects.

Microneedling treatments rely on thin needles to pierce and create micro-injuries within the skin to stimulate the body’s healing response, which includes increasing collagen growth. The body responds to skin damage by producing new, healthy skin cells to replace injured areas, resulting in more a more even skin texture and tone. Subsequently, the treatment improves the skin’s natural structure and support over time, resulting in declining aging signs and skin laxity at varying degrees based on the customizable needle length.
PRP material is platelet-rich plasma, which contains a high concentration of growth factors, which are essential for managing inflammation and healing wounds. The growth factors found in PRP play a significant role in producing cell and tissue regeneration, usually in areas of trauma or injury. Combining the techniques during a PRP microneedling treatment in West Hills offers more cosmetic benefits during fewer treatments, without increasing risks or recovery time.
A primary benefit of combining PRP with microneedling treatments in West Hills is the more effective stimulation of new, healthy collagen growth deeper within the skin. For instance, the addition of PRP products after microneedling encourages healthier, quicker collagen growth in treatment areas with micro-injuries during the minimal recovery period. As a result, PRP microneedling patients typically enjoy more significant reductions in signs of aging and longer-lasting skin improvements in the months after treatment.
In addition to heightened collagen production, the use of PRP significantly quickens the recovery period and minimizes the possible side effects after a microneedling treatment. Specifically, since PRP contains growth factors for cell regeneration, applying the ingredient to skin minimally damaged from microneedling ensures a quicker healing process. The anti-inflammation properties of PRP help minimize possible skin redness, irritation, and swelling after microneedling treatments.
After a PRP microneedling treatment, patients should see notable reductions in visible damage and blemishes, such as sunspots, age spots, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin texture. This technique is particularly effective for minimizing the appearance of stretch marks, surgical scars, and more severe acne scarring. Finally, the non-invasive treatment effectively reduces mild to moderate fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity for most patients.
Rather than accepting the early signs of wrinkles, skin laxity, and fine lines, you may be considering non-invasive treatments such as PRP injections and microneedling. Though both procedures offer notable benefits for reducing aging signs and skin damage, utilizing both techniques during one treatment provides several advantages.
By choosing the combined approach of PRP microneedling in West Hills, your overall skin improvements and reduction in aging signs could be more considerable than if you received standalone procedures. However, some conditions may worsen from this particular treatment, so patients must meet with Dr. Yaghoubian first to undergo an assessment.
