If maintaining fresh, young, beautiful skin even as you age is your goal, you’ve come to the right place when you walk in the door of Skin Med Spa in Downers Grove, Illinois.
We have put together two of our most popular and effective techniques to create a new procedure that leaves your skin glowing and vibrant: PRP with microneedling.
Here’s how the process works and why we decided to boost your microneedling treatment with PRP.
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. PRP is a concentrated blend of plasma cells and specific growth factors that is created from your own blood. To create PRP, your provider will extract a small amount of your own blood and spin it in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets in the blood.
This platelet-rich mixture is then injected directly into an injured or diseased part of your body, where it releases growth factors to naturally stimulate the healing process and reduce your recovery time. This is a popular treatment especially with professional athletes who need to recover quickly from injury.
Microneedling is a procedure that involves rolling very tiny needles over the skin to produce a series of micro-injuries. The idea is to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production to restore the elasticity of your skin while improving its texture, tone, and color.
Microneedling is effective in treating sagging skin, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, and reducing the appearance of facial scars such as acne scars.
When we add PRP to microneedling, we’re combining two therapies to supercharge your facial treatment. The small punctures created by microneedling provide the perfect place to inject the PRP into your face, thereby reversing the aging of your skin and producing a healthy glow.
The body takes time to produce new collagen, so you’ll begin to see results a few weeks after your treatment. We typically recommend multiple treatments to get the full effect.
You may have some soreness and tenderness after a treatment, but recovery is fairly quick. You may also have some redness and mild bruising, which clears up after a few days.
If you’re ready to restore that youthful glow to your face, PRP with microneedling is a fantastic way to start that process. Just call the Skin Med Spa office, or use our convenient online scheduler to get your appointment on the books.
