As we enter into the winter months, your skin might be looking and feeling a bit dull and weathered. Fortunately, you don’t need to wait until spring to rejuvenate your skin. Microneedling is the perfect way to keep your skin looking red carpet-ready every day of the winter season. Here’s what you should know about this incredible treatment.
Microneedling with a Dermapen®
The best microneedling is done using Dermapen, an electronic pen-shaped device equipped with tiny needles that puncture precise holes into the skin. These holes stimulate the skin to produce new collagen and elastin, which are the two components absolutely critical to health, radiant skin. After five to six microneedling treatments, the skin will show undeniable results including minimized scarring, reduced lines and wrinkles, and generally healthier skin. Microneedling can also be combined with PRP for dramatic results.
What Exactly is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma is your blood plasma that contains a high concentration of platelets. Platelets are actually incredible powerhouses of proteins called growth factors. A PRP treatment provides your skin with concentrated levels of platelets to stimulate the healing process that your body couldn’t achieve on its own, so you can kiss that scar and those wrinkles goodbye.
PRP is obtained when your blood is drawn and spun through a mechanism called a centrifuge, which separates and concentrates the growth factors. Then that concentrated plasma is injected back into your skin in any number of strategic locations based upon your ultimate beauty goals. When the PRP is delivered into your skin it immediately activates collagen cells and kick starts the skin into healing the right way.
The Power of Microneedling and PRP
By combining PRP with the Microneedling process, the skin receives two powerful healing triggers for accelerated results. Everything from pigment problems and acne scars to unwanted wrinkles can all be healed with this treatment that requires virtually no downtime and causes little to no pain. How can you say no to that?
