Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation technique that leverages your body’s healing power to achieve lasting improvements in the look and texture of your skin. The treatment is quickly becoming a favorite among both men and women and has the ability to treat a wide range of skin concerns.
Some of the skin conditions that benefit from microneedling include:
Few treatments offer the ability to address multiple skin concerns in one procedure without surgical intervention.
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a solution created from a small amount of your own blood. By concentrating certain blood components and delivering them to a targeted area, an improved healing process and impressive results are achievable.
Your blood contains a mixture of solids, including red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets, suspended in a liquid called plasma. By taking a small portion of blood and spinning it in a centrifuge, those components are separated.
Platelets contain essential proteins that enable your blood to clot. When you return those platelets to the plasma, a powerful solution is created that speeds healing.
The process begins with a microneedling session. Your practitioner glides the treatment device over the surface of your skin. The treatment head contains many tiny sterile needles, which penetrate into the deeper layers of your skin.
Next, the prepared PRP solution is spread over your skin. Each of the tiny microneedling channels provides a path for the PRP to penetrate deep into your skin. The microinjuries prompt your body’s healing response, and the PRP speeds the healing process.
The end result is the production of new collagen and elastin, which act to plump and smooth skin. You’ll experience some redness and skin sensitivity in the hours and days following your session, but your skin will quickly move through the healing process and you’ll begin to see results right away.
