Beautiful skin is soft, supple and glowing but sun damage, acne, wrinkles, fine lines, freckles and sun spots can make achieving luminous, beautiful skin difficult. Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy or dermapen microneedling, boosts your skin’s collagen and elastic production resulting in plump, youthful, glowing skin.
Benefits of Microneedling Treatment with PRP
- Stimulates the production of collagen and elastin
- Increases the absorption of skincare products
- Reduces sun spots, fine lines, wrinkles and freckles
- PRP increases skin rejuvenation and healing
- Combined they accelerate the results you would achieve from either treatment alone
What is Microneedling?
Using a mechanized device called a dermapen, Dr. Gould makes thousands of miniscule needle punctures in the outermost layers of the skin. By precisely controlling the depth, spacing, frequency, and pattern of these needle pricks, the dermapen stimulates your body to make more collagen in the areas where it needs it the most.
The microneedling devices looks like a miniature paint roller covered in metal spikes. It is controlled destruction of certain cells deep within the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
What Does Microneedling Help With?
Microoneedling combined with PRP helps improve:
- Fine lines
- Sun spots
- Stretch marks
- Large pores
- Pitted and non-pitted acne scars
Why Combine Microneedling with PRP
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) utilizes your body’s own materials to create a serum that increases the growth factors of your skin. This procedure extracts platelets from your blood associated with the healing process. When applied to your face it increases both how readily your face experiences rejuvenation while increasing the degree of healing that your face experiences.
When you combine microneedling with PRP you get all the benefits of microneedling with the increased skin rejuvenation and healing provided by PRP. By combining these treatments you’ll see better results than if you received either treatment alone.
How Soon Will I See Results?
Results can be seen immediately following the treatment with additional results showing over the next 4-6 weeks. As your body naturally treats itself while utilizing the PRP to heal, you will see the most dramatic results over the next 6 months.
Does Microneedling Hurt?
Microneedling sounds scary (thousands of needles going into your face) it is actually quite painless. Numbing cream can be used on your face to keep you completely comfortable during the procedure. The experience feels similar to a deep facial with a bit of extra vibration.
Is There Any Downtime? How Soon Can I Resume Normal Activities?
Immediately following the procedure your skin will be slightly red and tingly as the PRP is absorbed into your skin. By the following day you will be able to return to your normal daily activities with minimal downtime.
