How to Choose the Right Skin Treatment: Microneedling vs. PRP vs. Lapuroon Super

Updated: May 10, 2023


If you’re looking for a way to improve your skin’s appearance and health, you may have heard of some popular skin treatments such as microneedling, PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injections or Lapuroon Super. But what are these treatments exactly? How do they work? And which one is right for you?


In this blog post, we will explain the differences and similarities between these three skin treatments, and help you decide which one is best suited for your skin goals and needs.


What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves creating tiny punctures on the surface of your skin with a device that has fine needles. The purpose of this is to stimulate your skin’s natural healing process and increase the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for keeping your skin firm, smooth, and youthful.


Microneedling can help improve various skin concerns, such as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles

  • Acne scars and other types of scars

  • Enlarged pores

  • Uneven skin tone and texture

  • Stretch marks

  • Sagging skin

Microneedling can be done on any part of your body, but it is most commonly performed on the face. The procedure usually takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the area being treated. You may experience some redness, minor swelling and mild discomfort after the treatment, but these should subside within a few days. You will also need to avoid sun exposure and use sunscreen for at least a week after the treatment.

The results of microneedling are not immediate, as it takes time for your skin to produce new collagen and heal itself. You may notice some improvement after a few weeks, but you will need multiple sessions (usually three to six) spaced four to six weeks apart to achieve optimal results. The effects of microneedling can last for several months or even years, depending on your skin condition and lifestyle. New collagen takes time to mature and establish itself so the effects from microneedling will not be fully realised until 90 days after, if you have a session every month you will have an incredible cascade of new collagen and elastin formation and you will see stunning long lasting youthful results.


What is PRP?

PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, which is a substance derived from your own blood. Platelets are blood cells that contain growth factors and proteins that help with tissue repair and regeneration. PRP injections are used to enhance the effects of microneedling by providing extra nourishment and stimulation to your skin.


PRP injections can help improve various skin concerns, such as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles

  • Acne scars and other types of scars

  • Enlarged pores

  • Uneven skin tone and texture

  • Stretch marks

  • Sagging skin

PRP injections can also be used to treat hair loss, as they can stimulate hair follicles and promote hair growth.


To prepare PRP injections, a small amount of your blood is drawn and processed in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the other blood components. The plasma is then injected into the areas of your skin that need improvement, either before or after microneedling. The procedure usually takes about an hour to complete.


You may experience some bruising, swelling and mild discomfort at the injection sites, but these should subside within a few days. You will also need to avoid sun exposure and use sunscreen for at least a week after the treatment.


The results of PRP injections are not immediate, as it takes time for your skin to respond to the growth factors and proteins. You may notice some improvement after a few weeks, but you will need multiple sessions (usually three to six) spaced four to six weeks apart to achieve optimal results. The effects of PRP injections can last for several months or even years, depending on your skin condition and lifestyle.


What is Lapuroon Super?

Lapuroon Super is a new and innovative skin treatment that combines microneedling with PDRN. Lapuroon Aurora Super contains PDRN (Also known as sodium DNA or Salmon DNA as well as HA, 6 peptides, 19 amino acids, 4 minerals, 2 vitamins. PDRN (as a main ingredient) promotes the fundamental regeneration from deep inside dermis, the ingredients brightens the skin, and high contents of hyaluronic acid manages skin hydration so that any type of skin can be perfect once again.

Lapuroon Aurora Super’s strength:

  • Fast result for improving rough, dry skin

  • Effective in general skin rejuvenation

  • Strengthen skin barrier

  • More ingredients than other products and yet reasonable price

This enhances the effects of microneedling by providing extra lift and firmness to your skin as it acts to stimulate cell repair activity, regenerate epithelial and granulation tissues and reduce inflammation, therefore accelerating wound healing.


This means that it would be a good ingredient to put on your skin if you’ve had an injury, or are wanting skin rejuvenation in fighting the skin’s ageing process. Indeed, the effects of the ingredient have been confirmed by several clinical tests, which showed sodium DNA fragments passing through the cell membranes. This proved that the action was internal to the skin cells rather then simply superficial.


We spoke to facial aesthetic specialist Dr Pamela Benito, to find out more. We learnt about the ingredient’s powerful anti-ageing properties when applied on the skin. It has the ability to strengthen the structure of the epidermis, as well as encourage cell turnover, and remove free radicals. It also has a way of bringing back a brightness and elasticity in the skin. Overall, it’s great at preventing and repairing wrinkles and damage provoked by ageing, ensuring that the skin has a smoother and more youthful look.


If you would like to try out salmon DNA’s skin benefits for yourself, then we recommend adding it to your next facial. It can be added to microdermabrasion, microneedling, peels and plasma sessions!
