Micro-needling with PRP: What’s all the Buzz About?July 19, 2018
Micro-needling with PRP is gaining popularity fast, and it’s no secret why. It can have enormous benefits for your skin; it’s been reported that even Kim Kardashian and Tiger Woods have tried it!
Micro-needling with PRP is a non-invasive procedure that works to reduce the signs of aging and minimizes scarring.
Micro-needling with PRP is a non-invasive procedure which only takes 20 – 40 minutes with a recovery time of 4 – 6 days. During this procedure, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is obtained by drawing a small amount of blood from your arm into a sterile tube. The PRP is then applied topically during and after the micro-needling procedure in which the top layer of skin is penetrated without being damaged.
The pen used for micro-needling creates tiny channels, called micro-channels, at a specific depth in your skin to trigger the body’s natural healing process. The added benefits from applying the PRP allow new collagen and elastin to be produced in the papillary dermis and new capillaries are formed for an improved blood supply. This procedure kick-starts the body’s healing process with rejuvenation.
According to US Magazine, “The cutting-edge beauty treatment has been used since the early 90s on top sports athletes who had suffered soft tissue damage, but has now come into fashion as an alternative to facial fillers and Botox.”
Why Consider Micro-needling with PRP?
Micro-needling with PRP will consistently trigger the bodies repair process until the desired level of skin rejuvenation is achieved. Results from this procedure can include new collagen and elastin creating improved skin tone and texture, increased skin firmness and elasticity, reduction of scars, pores, hyperpigmentation, age spots, stretch marks, and improves the appearance of rosacea. These results can last up to one year.
