Over time, the aging process can take its toll on your skin. Fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, folds, and other skin issues begin to make their presence known. Many people find that they look older than they feel. This can lead them to having a diminished self-esteem and living life less fully.
Fortunately, we live in an age of rapid advancements in the field of anti-aging. Cutting edge treatments are now coming online that can help you turn back the clock on your aging skin. You can revitalize your skin and look more youthful with PRP micro-needling.
What is Micro-Needling?
Micro-needling is a technique using a device containing many extremely tiny sterilized needles. This device is gently rolled over the skin to create many micro-punctures. This temporary skin damage stimulates your body to speed healing to the area, including collagen deposits.
In effect, we are tricking the body into replacing old, aging skin cells with fresh new ones. The process encourages the body to turn over old cells much faster than it would otherwise. The result is skin that is revitalized and appears smoother and more youthful.
What is PRP?
PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma. This therapy involves the use of your own blood serum that is altered and enriched using your own blood platelets that contain a number of growth factors.
This special plasma helps repair and remodel damage to the skin and form new skin growth. The process is made more effective when combined with micro needling treatment.
How is PRP Micro-Needling performed?
PRP micro-needling is a form of controlled micro-injury to the skin that stimulates your body to trigger a repair process. A small device covered with many micro-needles forms hundreds of very small channels in your skin.
The first stage of the procedure damages the skin temporarily to trigger a healing reaction by your body. The PRP will be absorbed into your skin to generate new skin cells.
What Should I Expect Following My PRP Micro Needling procedure
Your skin may appear red and flushed, similar to the appearance of a sunburn. The effect is temporary and should fade away within a few days.
This change in skin appearance is actually a good thing because it shows that your body is responding to the micro-injuries by sending blood and healing nutrients to the area to revitalize your skin.
