The secret to revitalizing aging skin may lie within your very own blood. PRP treatment capitalizes on the dazzling array of nutrients that flow right through your veins. During this procedure, a modest amount of blood is drawn from the patient, the nutrient-dense platelets are filtered out, and then the resulting solution is carefully used in the treatment area. There are countless ways in which PRP can improve the texture, tone, and overall look for your complexion. Find out why the increasingly popular PRP treatment for smoother skin may be the absolute best way to both reclaim and maintain your youthful good looks.
What to Expect During a PRP Skin Treatment
The platelet-rich-plasma used in these procedures is always sourced from the patient’s own blood supply. The process of drawing sufficient blood takes mere minutes, as does the filtering of platelets. Once the PRP has been obtained, the surface of your skin will be prepared. A micro-needling device can be passed over the treatment area to create tiny micro-channels in the skin. These openings will allow the PRP to seep in and penetrate the dermis deeply.
Micro-needling procedures in general can be compared to many other low-risk and minimally-invasive treatment options for revitalizing the skin. Any time that modest amounts of controlled damage are created at the surface of the skin, the body responds by expediting its natural healing processes. With micro-needling, however, controlled damages penetrate more deeply into the dermis. As such, not only is normal cell production enhanced, but patients will also see a noticeable increase in the production of beneficial substances in the skin.
When PRP is used with micro-needling, the skin is given the most comprehensive array of nutrients for supporting new skin and tissue development, enhancing cell differentiation. Moreover, because these nutrients are derived from the patient’s own blood, the body can easily recognize and use them. Currently, PRP applications remain the most effective choice for rejuvenating the skin at every level.
Improvements You Can Gain
Micro-needling with PRP can firm the skin, increase its elasticity, smooth out a variety of textural issues, and do so much more. These treatments can minimize the appearance of acne scars, lift and add volume to the skin, minimize the appearance of dark spots and other blemishes, and make the treatment area more resilient all-around. Best of all, PRP treatment can be safely used in conjunction with many other popular cosmetic procedures.
