Today there are more choices than ever when it comes to enhancing the appearance of skin that has been damaged due to sun exposure, acne or the aging process. However, many potential patients are left confused by the dizzying array of choices before them.
One basic choice you can make when deciding which procedure is right for you is determining your comfort level with surgery. Surgery, while offering dramatic results, is not something many people are comfortable with. They may feel it is too risky, expensive or requires too much downtime. Others may feel that cosmetic surgery leads to results that do not appear natural or plausible.
Fortunately, micro-needling procedures can be combined with PRP treatments for amazing skin rejuvenation results. This combination approach does not require surgery or extensive downtime.
What is Micro-Needling?
Micro-needling has become an increasingly popular skin rejuvenation treatment that is seen by many as a safe alternative to traditional cosmetic surgery. The procedure is minimally-invasive, safe, effective and requires little to no downtime.
The treatment process involves the passing of a device with many fine micro-needles over the surface of the skin. This creates many tiny micro-openings in the skin. While invisible to the naked eye, these small punctures trigger the body into the production of fresh collagen to rejuvenate the skin.
Micro-needling can safely treat skin problems like fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and poor skin texture. You can expect virtually no downtime following a session, and your results will gradually improve as your skin heals normally.
This procedure can be performed alone or in combination with other types of treatments. It can greatly enhance the effectiveness of certain therapies, especially those involving the application of topical agents.
What is PRP?
Plasma Rich Protein, or PRP, involves spinning the patient’s own blood in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets, which are formulated into a solution. This solution has the ability to quickly heal or improve the condition of soft tissues, like the skin.
Micro-needling works perfectly in conjunction with PRP therapy because it allows the serum to flow through the micro-channels created by the micro-needling process. Normally, the skin presents an outer barrier that prevents molecules of a certain size from penetrating. Micro-needling allows the PRP to bypass this barrier and go to work deep beneath your skin.
