Did you know that recent advances in medicine have led to improved nonsurgical treatment options for erasing fine lines and wrinkles, reducing the appearance of scars, toning and lifting sagging skin, and working to decrease the appearance of aging?
While some of these treatments work as promised when delivered by expertly trained providers, many options, such as chemical peels and laser treatments, can leave you hiding out at home while your skin heals.
At Integrative Medica in Salt Lake City, Utah, our providers are committed to offering patients truly effective facial rejuvenation treatments that don’t cause unnecessary discomfort and lengthy healing times. That’s why our practice offers safe and effective microneedling with PRP.
Take a moment to learn more about this treatment option and why it’s the hottest trend in facial rejuvenation.
What is microneedling with PRP?
Microneedling with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) combines two effective treatments clinically proven to stimulate natural collagen production and improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and other skin flaws.
These two treatment approaches can be used independently, and both can provide impressive results, reducing the effects of aging and giving you younger-looking skin. When you combine them into a two-in-one treatment, your results soar to the next level.
Microneedling involves your skin care expert using an instrument with tiny needles to create microscopic wounds on the targeted skin. These needles are too small to cause pain or bleeding, but the tiny injuries trigger your body’s natural healing response.
The result? Your body increases its production of collagen and other growth factors to repair and rebuild the skin tissue in the treatment area. As your skin heals, you’re left with firmer, more youthful-looking skin.
Understanding platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
The platelets in your blood contain natural growth factors and other substances that stimulate collagen production and promote healing. To create platelet-rich plasma (PRP), our providers take a sample of your blood and spin it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from other blood components.
We then create a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) solution that can be injected into your body to promote healing, improve your skin, and provide other health benefits. When combined with microneedling, the PRP serum is spread across the treatment area to significantly improve your overall results.
