Sometimes called the ‘vampire facial,’ micro-needling with PRP is a procedure that promises complete skin rejuvenation, with fast results without a lot of side effects. You may be wondering if it is really worth all the hype? Here we give you three reasons to check out this popular treatment.
Microneedling with PRP is actually two treatments combined into one. PRP or platelet-rich plasma is the process of injecting plasma from your blood back into your skin. A technician will draw your blood at the beginning of the treatment – they spin it in a centrifuge to separate the plasma. This plasma is injected back into treatment areas where it also helps to stimulate collagen and elastic growth.
Individuals considering microdermabrasion Toronto services may also benefit from Microneedling, which is the second part of the process and involves a roller with tiny needles that prick the surface of your skin, creating small puncture wounds in the top layer of skin. These wounds jump-start your own healing process and cause your skin to generate new collagen and elastin.
So, why is the Microneedling with PRP treatment at emclinicandspa.com, so popular? Here are three reasons.
1. It Treats Hard to Treat Skin Conditions
Microneedling with PRP is a way to stimulate your body’s healing processes. It works below the surface of the skin to produce new skin cells, and as it does this, it creates new collagen and elastin. These are the tissues that give skin a youthful, plump appearance.
Microneedling with PRP works from the inside of your skin out, and so the treatment helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles, but it also treats hard to treat acne, rosacea and improves overall skin texture and tone.
Microneedling with PRP can also be used on delicate, hard to treat areas of the skin like under the eyes, where other treatments can not be used.
2. It is Safe and Non Invasive
PRP or platelet-rich plasma does not use any foreign ingredients or chemicals as part of the treatment. The vital component is your platelets that come from your blood, so there is no risk of allergic reactions or irritation from chemical treatments. The procedure has also been around for a long time. It was developed to deal with sports injuries and has been used by doctors since the 1970s.
The treatment is also non-invasive. Some patients describe the treatment as feeling like sandpaper brushing over their skin. Some patients also experience slight redness or feel like their face feels tender after the procedure similar to a sunburn, but this goes away after a few days. The treatment is much less invasive than plastic surgery options.
3. The Benefits Last A Long Time
Often patients report that they can results from the initial treatment immediately after, but the full benefits may take a few weeks to appear, and most patients will need a series of three treatments. The other good news is that these effects tend to last quite a while – with most patients seeing the benefits for 12 to 14 months.
