While it is presently impossible to reverse aging, incredible advancements have allowed the effects of aging to be reversed. These cutting-edge procedures don’t require you to go under the scalpel of a surgeon, nor do they require you to endure painful or prolonged procedures.
The most advanced of these non-invasive procedures has to be micro needling mixed with platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy. By stimulating the body’s natural collagen rebuilding processes and supplying the right materials, this technique can significantly reverse the effects of aging.
What is Micro-Needling?
Micro needling utilizes microscopic needles to puncture the skin. This leaves the outermost layer of the skin unharmed while causing controlled damage to the deeper layers of the skin.
This procedure triggers the body’s natural processes that allow for new collagen to be constructed. These new collagen layers are tighter, firmer and free from the sagging.
Another benefit of micro needling is the ability to boost how readily your skin absorbs topical treatments. This can help treat acne and other dermatological conditions that you may have had trouble treating in the past.
What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) plasma utilizes your body’s own materials to create a serum that increases the growth factors of your skin. It can be used by itself to promote the rebuilding of skin due to the way that PRP works.
PRP extracts platelets from your blood associated with the healing process. The PRP is then applied to your face to increase both how readily your face experiences rejuvenation while increasing the degree of healing that your face experiences.
The Benefits of Combining Micro Needling with PRP
Micro-needling is the controlled destruction of certain cells deep within the skin. PRP represents a way to enhance the healing of your skin cells. The two therapies work in synergy to create a treatment that delivers accelerated results capable of bringing better results than each part could alone.
Results may be seen immediately following treatment with more results showing over the next four to six weeks. The largest of the results will occur over the next six months as your body naturally treats itself while utilizing the PRP to heal.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Side effects from micro-needling and PRP tend to be minimal. You may experience some swelling, redness, and mild peeling.
These side effects tend to disappear within the first three days of your treatment. Most will disappear within 24 hours.
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
Patients undergoing micro needling with PRP may need several treatment sessions. Advanced issues, which include scars and deep lines, may require additional treatment sessions.
The only way to determine how many micro needling and PRP treatments you require is to consult with one of our experienced dermatological care providers.
