Microneedling and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Do you suffer from trouble with wrinkles, sun damage, or acne scars? If so, you've definitely heard about microneedling, a minimally invasive procedure that creates channels in the skin by creating carefully planned micro-injuries performed by a licensed healthcare professional. The procedure stimulates your skin's natural healing process, generates collagen growth, induces cellular turnover and elastin production. It is scientifically proven to enhance skin health and produce firm, even-colored, smooth skin. Widely nicknamed as the "Vampire Facial" it takes microneedling to the next level. Microneedling with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) regenerates the skin by using the patient's own blood. The patient's blood is collected, centrifuged to separate the red blood cells from the highly concentrated platelet rich plasma. The PRP is then topically applied during and after your microneedling treatment with a bonus of the extra PRP sent home to apply prior to bed.
How does Microneedling with PRP Work?
Microneedling with PRP concentrates the healing power of your body and gently introduces it directly to where it will be most effective for healing and regenerating the tissues that give you a youthful healthy glow. The goal of microneedling with PRP is to enhance skin texture and tone, reduce pore size, tighten skin, decrease inflammation, firm skin, and reduce visible signs of aging.
Why Microneedling with PRP?
PRP treats the skin's surface as well as its underlying layers, giving the skin a glow from the inside out. This procedure is very safe, minimally invasive, and has a minimal recovery time. It can also be done any time of year. Its benefits have been scientifically demonstrated for:
-Dark under-eye circles or crow’s feet
-Sun damage skin
-Dull skin tone or dry skin
-Uneven skin tone
-Fine lines and wrinkles
What other areas can I treat?
-Horizontal neck line
-Age spots on hands
Does it hurt?
At Bayshore Medical Group we apply a medical grade topical anesthetic to numb your skin 15-20 minutes before the procedure. This will reduce any feeling from the microneedling device. Once the PRP is applied there is immediate comfort and relief.
When can I see the results?
After every treatment, your skin will appear smoother, even toned, and healthier. The degree of sun damage, the number of treatments, and the overall condition of the skin will all affect the results. In 3 to 6 weeks, new collagen begins to grow, smoothing out the wrinkles and fine lines. For the next three to six months, you will continue to see results.
