Real life: Read one patient’s custom skincare journey with PRP Injections and Microneedling with PRP

When friends started to ask me if I’d been getting more sleep, or if I’ve been doing something different, I knew I was on the right path.

 

Before and After Results of PRP Injections DC by Top DC Plastic SurgeonsI’ve been a patient of Drs. Bruno and Brown for years now, having had a few different procedures done. I’d trust any recommendation they might have, so when some new PRP treatments came out, I was definitely game to give it a go.  I’m so thrilled with the results that when they asked me to write about my experience, I was delighted to do so.

Treatments:

Microneedling w/ PRP x 5
PRP Injections x 2
IPL x1

Microneedling with PRP:

Feels like: Most of it isn’t that bad.  I’ve heard it described as a cat licking your face. Not being a cat person, or having ever had a cat lick my face, I’m not sure, but it seems pretty accurate.  It’s sort of a sandpapery feeling. That said, when you get to certain spots on your face where there are nerve bundles, expect to do some sudden table clenching.
Recovery time: I had redness for a couple days, but nothing major.
Helpful hint: Get the numbing cream, and follow up with the ZO Skin Health product line they recommend for you. I’ve never had face creams work this well. Also, you’ll leave the appointment with your plasma still on your face, so perhaps schedule that coffee date for another time.
Best part? It’s given me back a plumpness and evenness to my skin I’d thought gone forever.  My wrinkles and crows feet have softened, so I’ve been ok going without Botox (a huge milestone for me).
Would I do it again? Absolutely.

PRP Injections under the eyes, cheeks, nasolabial folds and around the mouth:

Feels like: An injection is all I can say, but it’s quick. Around the mouth hurt the most to me.
Recovery time: Expect some fairly spectacular raccoon-like eyes for 3 days or so, but it’s easier to cover up after that.  My bruising was completely gone in about a week.
Helpful hint: Walk straight past that regular concealer and go for the stage makeup unless you plan on developing incredibly convenient food poisoning for the next couple days.
Best part: My eyes look less tired and crepey, which is great, but I’m really thrilled with the results around my mouth. I’ve never been a smoker but was cursed with ‘smoker lines’ that just drove me nuts. These have been considerably smoothed out. I’m delighted.
Would I do it again? Absolutely.

IPL:

Feels like: A rubber band snap- not painful to me at all.
Recovery time: None for IPL
Helpful hint: None! You’re in good hands with Sara, and this was the fastest, easiest part of my treatment plan.
Best part? This worked really well on one lingering sun spot.
Would I do it again? Absolutely.

Results:

The treatments are spaced about six weeks apart.  I noticed an improvement about five weeks after my first treatment.  About 4-5 weeks after the second treatment was when I started to see dramatic improvements and the compliments began to fly.

The Best Part:

My goal has always been to keep my look as natural as possible. It’s great that the regimen was custom designed for me based on what my skin needed. I love that I’m actually fixing my skin from the inside, not just masking the problem.  My skin looks healthier, more plump and even, and certainly has a more youthful glow.  I’d highly recommend IPL, microneedling w/ PRP and PRP injections, or any other combination that Bruno|Brown Plastic Surgery recommends specifically for you.

In Hollywood, Breast Augmentation is King, but Ariel Winter Breaks the Mold by Discussing her Breast Reduction Surgery.

Hollywood gets a lot of notice for making breasts bigger through breast augmentation, but Ariel Winter is breaking the mold by discussing her breast reduction.

 

Last year, the celebrity was seen sporting a strapless dress that exposed her scars from the recent breast reduction surgery. She now poses in an un-retouched shoot for Self magazine saying that breast reduction was “honestly the greatest choice I made”. For years she says she suffered through back and neck pain, while also being scrutinized by media for being too curvy. In an article with Entertainment Tonight, she talks about her experience.

“Women are already over-sexualized, and I grew into my body so young,” she continued. “I was 13, 14 years old, and I looked 19. Suddenly, people didn’t want to talk about my job — they just wanted to talk about my cleavage.”

Winter received plenty of unwanted attention online.

“I’d go to awards shows and the next day see everyone on the Internet telling me I shouldn’t look like this and dress like that,” she wrote. “The conversation became about my looks instead of my talent and work — everything that I didn’t want. I even started getting messages from older male fans, and let’s just say they were gross.”

Of course, her issues were more than psychological.

“It’s really difficult to be such a small girl and have so much weight on your chest,” Winter explained. “You physically hurt. You can’t find clothes that fit right. I couldn’t find a cute bathing suit. Everything looked like I was trying to be ‘sexy.’ It didn’t help that I didn’t look like any of my friends my age.”

She emphasized though that the decision she made was for herself.”I mainly did it for myself,” Winter said at the Teen Vogue Young Hollywood party in Beverly Hills, California. “Yes, I had many comments, and it bothered me that that was kind of what I was known for. And that was kind of what people were commenting on my photos. That bothered me, but it wasn’t the main reason I did it.”

Now, more than ever, she is a strong proponent of body positivity. “Don’t get me wrong: I don’t think women should ever change themselves based on anyone else’s standards,” she wrote. “My surgery got a lot of criticism from some people, but I’m happier for it. In the end, I think it’s all about how you feel — not what other people think.”
