Over the course of a lifetime, our skin endures some fairly intense conditions and hardships. It’s no wonder we find ourselves with an increasing number of scars, acne marks, wrinkles, and lines, all giving everyone who sees them an idea about our age.
For anyone who wants their face to communicate youthful vitality, instead of years of wear, microneedling is a quick, effective means of erasing wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, and other cosmetic hints at the passage of time.
Wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks your concern?
Your body is good at meeting its needs, which is why it sends restorative collagen and elastin to areas with a wound that needs healing. Since it doesn’t take much to “heal” the channels created by microneedling, your body is essentially motivated into flooding the treated area with far more help than is actually needed. The abundant remodeling agents get to work thickening the epidermis, stimulating the extracellular matrix, and reducing inflammation, all of which contribute to a more youthful-looking you!
PRP is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein derived from whole blood, centrifuged to remove red blood cells.
Microneedling with PRP is a cosmetic treatment that stimulates collagen production by rolling fine needles over the skin and applying platelets, which are one of the components of blood. The addition of PRP from the blood may make microneedling more effective. … These proteins help skin tissue repair itself.
Studies have shown that microneedling initiates collagen synthesis.
Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. These needles are used to puncture the skin at various depths to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that stimulates neovascularization and neocollagenesis to fill these microscopic wounds.
Patients seeking a microneedling treatment will first have a consultation with a highly trained Aesthetic Expert to determine whether the treatment is the appropriate course of action. From there, a session schedule will be determined based on the condition of your skin and what your goals are. Some patients might be satisfied with the effects of a single round of microneedling, while others will require a series of two to three treatments spaced about six to eight weeks apart. Patients with severe scarring or deep wrinkles may require additional treatments.
Following the procedure patients can expect that the area treated by the SkinPen ® will be red for a few days. This often lasts for 24 hours at most, but some patients experience the effects for two to four days, depending on the duration of the procedure. Because microneedling is minimally invasive, patients can return to their normal routine immediately following treatment.
