This combination procedure minimizes the appearance of countless imperfections ranging from crow’s feet to acne scars. Each treatment can be completed in the comfort of our office, and you won’t have to worry about a lengthy recovery or complicated aftercare instructions.
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy?
This style of therapy has been used for decades to treat a myriad of health conditions. It was originally developed for patients who were suffering from chronic joint pain, but doctors quickly realized that it had cosmetic uses as well. Platelet-rich plasma is a concentrated serum that is made from a patient’s own blood. A small sample of blood is placed in a machine that spins it at a very high speed in order to separate the plasma from all of the other molecules. Once the PRP has been created, it is used to bring about many benefits.
One of the most effective ways to combat age-related blemishes is to trigger the body’s natural healing response. Micro-needling creates thousands of microscopic openings in the skin, and the body responds by flooding the site with key amino acids. A special device can be used to create micro-openings in areas where smile lines, laugh lines, nasolabial folds, acne scars, sun spots, and other surface blemishes are present. Within weeks of the treatment, those imperfections naturally disappear as healthy cells replace the damaged cells.
The Benefits of a Combination Procedure
Many patients are now flocking to PRP therapy and micro-needling because these treatments are minimally-invasive. Options such as facelifts can be very effective, but the recovery period is lengthy. Following PRP therapy and micro-needling, patients don’t have to worry about spending weeks in bed. Most of the side effects fade away within hours, and any discomfort can easily be mitigated with over-the-counter medications.
Studies are now showing us that when used together, these two treatments are extremely effective. You could see distinct improvements after just weeks, and the results can last for years as long as the skin is protected from further damage. As soon as the imperfections become visible, you can schedule maintenance appointments to preserve the results.
Finally, many patients choose these two procedures over invasive surgeries because they can be completed in a matter of minutes. You can easily schedule your appointments at the end of the day or on a break from your other activities.
