Regaining a more youthful face doesn’t always have to involve surgery. There are several innovative, minimally-invasive options in facial rejuvenation that can turn back the hands of time. In fact, one of the newest and most advanced treatments involves using your own blood! Microneedling with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a naturally rejuvenating procedure that relies on your body’s own healing capabilities. Most impressively, PRP can take standard microneedling results to the next level. While using tiny needles and blood across your complexion may sound gruesome at first, you’ll be glad to know that this in-office procedure is not as dramatic as you may imagine.
Microneedling has been around for years as an effective means to trigger renewal within the skin. Below the surface of your skin is the skin matrix, which holds important components (like collagen and elastin) to give your face its youthful and firm appearance. Unfortunately, these elements are depleted as we grow older. In result, facial skin loses its volume, pores appear larger and fine lines and wrinkles emerge.
Microneedling is the perfect intervention to reverse this aging process. Using very tiny punctures in the skin, microneedling stimulates the production of collagen and elastin for a naturally-rejuvenated appearance. This procedure alone is used by millions of people each year with successful outcomes. However, if you want to give your microneedling a dramatic boost – consider adding PRP.
Adding PRP to Your Microneedling
Your own blood offers some amazing tools for better-looking skin. By extracting a small amount of your blood, the platelet-rich plasma can be separated and used in your microneedling treatment. This is commonly referred to as a “vampire facial,” but don’t let that scare you. This treatment is based the advanced scientific research and evidence that PRP contains powerful healing and growth factors to help generate the development of new, healthier skin cells and repair damaged tissue. When supplementing your microneedling with PRP, you’ll unleash your body’s own renewal tools and enjoy a healthier and fresher look than just using microneedling alone.
