If you have lines and wrinkles on your face, you may know all too well how upsetting it can be. But there’s no need to undergo drastic procedures in order to erase those signs of aging that have creeped up on you. Oftentimes, we recommend our micro-needling with PRP treatment to help refresh and smooth out the skin. In addition to minimizing signs of aging, this treatment can also be used to address stretch mark, acne scars, and uneven pigmentation.
What is Micro-Needling?
Micro-needling is a procedure that uses a special device to create tiny micro-channels in your skin. Micro-needling actually prompts your body to begin a natural healing process, and as a result, your skin will start to produce more collagen and elastin, which is what will make it look younger and more refreshed.
What is PRP?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. To create the serum that will be used in your micro-needling procedure, all we need from you is a simple blood sample. From there, we will put the blood in a centrifuge, which will separate it into its different components. We then take your platelets and recombine them with your plasma. The reason for this is that platelets are full of growth factors and actually are the part of your blood that helps your body heal.
Why Combine Micro-Needling with PRP?
The benefit of combining micro-needling with PRP is that these two treatments work hand in hand to increase the best results of both procedures. Micro-needling with PRP uses a micro-needling tool to create those microscopic channels in your skin, which then allows the PRP serum to be directly absorbed. You will get the double healing properties of both procedures all at once!
Micro-needling with PRP can be used to treat fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and more. It is a completely safe and effective procedure that will have you seeing that look natural.
