Microneedling is one of the most commonly performed anti-aging treatments. Also known as percutaneous collagen induction or collagen induction therapy, this treatment stimulates your body’s collagen production by creating “micro-channels” and triggering your body’s self-healing process. At Restore Center for Aesthetics in Munster, IN, we pride ourselves in remaining on the cutting edge of advancements in medical technology. This skin rejuvenation treatment can be enhanced with the assistance of natural growth factors via microneedling with PRP.
What Is Microneedling With PRP?
Microneedling with PRP is similar to traditional microneedling in that a special device is used to penetrate your skin with tiny needles and stimulate your body’s collagen production process. What sets apart microneedling with PRP is the addition of your body’s own growth factors.
What Is PRP?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is one of the three primary components which make up your blood. PRP therapy involves a three-step process, starting with a collection of your blood being drawn from your arm. The blood is spun rapidly in a centrifuge to separate it into red blood cells, platelet-poor plasma, and PRP.
The PRP is purified and prepared for treatment. This plasma, rich in both platelets and human growth factors, is often applied to the skin topically during microneedling with PRP. Adding PRP to your microneedling treatment session is greatly preferred over traditional microneedling because the results are more dramatic and last a lot longer.
What Results Can I Expect?
Microneedling with PRP is most often used to treat hyperpigmentation, age spots, wrinkles and acne scarring of the face. However, it may also be used to treat other types of scars and stretch marks on other parts of the body, including the back, stomach, and hips. With just one treatment, you may see a drastic reduction in the appearance of fine lines and moderate-to-severe wrinkles, as well as more even pigmentation and a significant reduction in scars and stretch marks.
Keep in mind, however, that only some of your results will be immediate. Your skin should continue to tighten as your body gradually produces more fresh, healthy collagen. You should begin to see some results within a week of your first treatment. The best results often develop over the course of approximately four to six weeks.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
One of the most exciting aspects of choosing microneedling with PRP is how many people may benefit from it! As it uses no lasers or substances foreign to your body, this treatment may be performed on most skin tones and types. However, a consultation with our professionals is essential to determine if this treatment is right for you.
