Many patients who dream of perfect skin may look into procedures like facelift surgery to reduce visible signs of aging. Unfortunately, not every patient likes the idea of having invasive surgery or a lengthy recovery period. At our practice, we offer a safe, non-surgical solution for your facial needs using microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Microneedling with PRP can improve the texture of the skin to help you achieve a smoother, more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling with PRP is a safe treatment that can be used on almost all skin types to eliminate facial imperfections such as wrinkles, fine lines, scars, and stretch marks. It can also treat uneven skin texture and hyperpigmentation to provide you with beautiful and youthful skin. During your treatment, your surgeon will gently cleanse your face with a hand-held device. Your blood will also be drawn and purified. The blood is then injected into the surface of your skin and tissues very carefully. Once the treated area has been injected, it will stimulate the production of new collagen and skin cells to rejuvenate your skin.
Benefits of PRP
Many patients are looking into PRP treatments because of how microneedling can help deliver natural growth factors that are already present within their own blood into the dermis. This treatment can also promote the regeneration of soft tissues to enhance a patient’s overall facial appearance. PRP is performed on an outpatient basis, which means patients do not have to endure a long recovery period and can return home soon after their treatment.
Although there may be minimal downtime following your PRP treatment, you will be asked to protect your skin by avoiding direct sun exposure and applying plenty of sunscreen. It is also important that you do not use any harmful exfoliators that may irritate the skin, and make sure to cleanse and moisturize the treated area at least twice a day. Be sure to avoid any activities that will make you sweat for a few days or until your surgeon clears you.
