There are many reasons why you develop lines and wrinkles as you age. For one, as you get older, your body slows down the production of collagen and elastin, which are two things that are responsible for keeping your skin smooth and tight. Other factors include exposure to the sun and elements, which can cause great damage to your skin. When you want to treat the signs of aging, you should address all of these root causes by helping your skin produce more collagen while also wiping away all that unwelcome damage. Oftentimes, the best way to accomplish this is by combining PRP treatments with microneedling for amazing results.
PRP is a great way to restore and revitalize your skin because it does this through all-natural means. PRP uses only the power inherent in your own blood in order to achieve total facial rejuvenation. You blood contains powerful elements that are responsible for healing the body. These elements include white blood cells, which can heal other cells, growth factors that heal injuries, and cytokines, which heal soft tissue. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, contains all three of these elements.
To extract your PRP, all we have to do is draw a small amount of your blood. It will then be put into a centrifuge, which will break the blood sample down into its different parts. From there, we will be able to create a concentrated serum of your PRP, which we will then use to heal your skin.
Microneedling is an effective treatment that uses a device which contains many fine needles. When the device is moved smoothly over your skin, it leaves behind tiny channels. These channels are so small that they can’t be seen, but they do prompt the body to begin the healing process. That means your skin will be flooded with fresh blood, and it will also start producing more collagen and elastin.
Combining PRP Treatments with Microneedling
On their own, PRP and microneedling offer amazing results. However, when they are combined, you get enhanced results. During the microneedling treatment, the PRP can be used. This way, the PRP serum is able to use the channels created by the device in order to penetrate the deep layers of your skin. So not only will the microneedling help your skin create collagen, but so will the PRP!
Microneedling and PRP treatments are able to help treat various signs of aging, including those fine lines and wrinkles on your face. It can also reduce the look of age spots and scars, as well as help restore lost facial volume. Overall, you will see a noticeable improvement in your skin almost right away.
