Look Younger with PRP and Microneedling
- Posted on: Nov 15 2019
Do you want a younger, rejuvenated face? Have you heard about microneedling and PRP? PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. During a PRP procedure, your blood is taken and spun around then injected back into your body. This process safely stimulates your skin’s natural healing system giving your skin a fresh, youthful look.
Microneedling helps to minimize wrinkles and rejuvenate skin while improving the appearance of acne scars. Microneedling causes tiny injuries to the skin, which then encourages the skin to heal itself by creating new elastin and collagen. When done by a professional dermatologist, the treatment can then be customized for the best results. Some benefits of microneedling include:
- Softening of stretch marks
- Increasing skin firmness and tightness
- Reduction of hyperpigmentation and pore size
- Minimization of broken capillaries and spider veins
- Improvement skin texture and appearance of scars
Microneedling with PRP
When used together, microneedling and PRP can deliver beautiful results. The microchannels created by microneedling allow the PRP to penetrate the layers of skin giving that renewed appearance.
What are the benefits of PRP and Microneedling?
By adding microneedling to a platelet rich plasma procedure, we’ve seen enhanced benefits of both treatments. These procedures are known for their anti-aging benefits as well as providing a more even skin tone and smoother skin.
When will I see results?
Your immediate results after treatment may not be ideal, but in the following weeks your skin will appear younger and more rejuvenated and can last for months.
What is recovery like?
Recovery is usually pretty simple. Immediately following treatment, your skin may look like you have a moderate to severe sunburn and also have a warmer and tighter feeling than usual. Make sure you follow your aftercare instructions from the doctor. It’s recommended you avoid direct sunlight for 24-48 hours after treatment. You also will be advised to wear sunscreen with an SPF 25 or higher. It’s recommended you avoid any other skincare treatments post-procedure other than sunscreen for the first three days.
