No matter how hard you try, you can’t avoid the effects of aging forever. But, you also don’t have to accept wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin as part of your inevitable future. Here at Skin Deep Laser Medspa, Dr. Michael Schwartz and the aesthetics team offer the most effective treatments to smooth lines and wrinkles so you retain your youthful appearance.
One of these options is microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). If you haven’t yet heard about it, you could be missing out on an ideal solution to improve the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and even acne-scarred skin. Take a minute to learn why microneedling with PRP is the hottest treatment for naturally rejuvenating your skin.
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that minimizes the signs of aging and improves the tone and texture of your facial skin. Some doctors in the medical community regard microneedling as the most powerful way to stop the signs of aging and prevent new lines and wrinkles.
During a microneedling treatment, your aesthetic provider uses a special device that contains a collection of tiny needles. As the needles move over your skin, they create tiny puncture wounds in the surface. Your body attempts to heal these microinjuries by producing new collagen to repair the apparent damage.
In reality, microneedling isn’t harmful at all, but, rather, it’s a collagen-inducing stimulant for aging or scarred skin. Microneedling by itself is a wonderful way to heal your skin from the inner layers outward, and, combined with platelet-rich plasma, it works even faster.
PRP therapy is one of the hottest treatments available for several medical applications. The platelets from your own blood contain a wealth of proteins, or growth factors, that stimulate healing and generate new, healthy tissue. Platelet-rich plasma can help heal an arthritic joint, repair a torn Achilles tendon, and, when combined with microneedling, speed up the skin’s healing process.
With PRP, you may reap the benefits of tighter, smoother skin even faster than with microneedling alone. Since your skin is full of tiny puncture wounds immediately following a treatment, it’s the optimal time to apply PRP to your skin’s surface. The platelet-rich plasma easily absorbs into the deeper layers of tissue, giving collagen production a boost.
Microneedling with PRP can improve a variety of skin and aging concerns, including:
The numerous benefits of microneedling and PRP include:
When you come to Skin Deep Laser Medspa for a microneedling with PRP treatment, your provider draws a small amount of blood from your arm, like you would experience for a typical blood analysis. They process your blood in a centrifuge to separate the blood platelets from the other components. The PRP solution contains a high concentration of protein-rich platelets, which is often 5-10 times greater than the concentration found in untreated blood.
While the team prepares your PRP, you relax comfortably. The treatment is practically painless and is highly effective at stimulating cell turnover and increasing collagen and elastin production — the support structure for a healthy, firm, smooth skin tone.
If you’re bothered by the signs of aging that stare back at you every time you look in the mirror, but you’ve been reluctant to try cosmetic injections or laser therapies, consider the many benefits and ease of treatment of microneedling with PRP.
