Microneedling with PRP/ezPRF
If you experience mild to moderate complexion problems, like rough skin texture or low elasticity, then Microneedling may be the procedure you need.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive procedure to tighten and rejuvenate your skin.
What is Microneedling?
Using the FDA-approved microneedling pen, RejuvaPen, this procedure entails creating tiny skin wounds. These micro-injuries prompt your body’s natural healing process and generate new skin cell growth along with increased collagen and elastin production.
Microneedling improves fine lines, acne scars, sun damage, and overall elasticity of the skin. Because it doesn’t use laser energy for these benefits, skin types of all tones and colors can benefit from microneedling. For best results, 4-6 treatments are recommended, 4 weeks apart.
What is PRP?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, which is a highly concentrated solution of plasma prepared from your own blood. It contains platelets that release numerous growth factors that help in increasing collagen production and cell growth and tissue regeneration.
When used in conjunction with microneedling, it plays a major role in enhancing your skin’s ability to regenerate new cells, collagen, and elastin to help to heal it and improve the look of your skin. Microneedling with PRP is also called a “vampire facial,” since the platelets come from your own blood.
Visible results can vary depending on many factors, such as age, nutrition, and overall health. It can take up to 2-3 months to see results as the process of elastin and collagen production require time to have an impact on the complexion; however, you will have results that look natural and be long-lasting.
What Concerns Does Microneedling With PRP Help With?
The microneedling process on its own creates a controlled skin injury throughout the treatment area that stimulates both the skin’s surface and the deeper layers to create dual and long-lasting benefits. When PRP is used in conjunction by being applied throughout the microneedled area, skin cells gain growth factors and nutrients needed to build back a more even skin tone or even heal stretch marks.
The most appropriate concerns that can be addressed with PRP microneedling in Austin are:
Uneven skin tone
Mild skin laxity
Rough skin texture
Scars (acne or surgical)
What is PRF?
PRF is an advanced form of PRP. It stands for platelet-rich fibrin and, like PRP, is rich in platelets, stem cells, white blood cells, and fibrin. PRF’s fibrin scaffold is not found in PRP – this scaffold gives it the benefit of slower, more potent release (around 7-10 days) so you can enjoy the benefits for much longer than traditional PRP.
PRF can be used for many of the same functions as PRP. Like PRP, it comes with no additives or chemicals and is a 100% natural way to rejuvenate the skin and body.
PRF GEL (Biologic Filler)
PRF Gel is an all natural substance similar to PRP but for a different purpose. Just like PRP, it is created using your own blood sample but processed using a cooling and heating technique creating the gel-like substance. PRF Gel is used in a similar fashion as dermal fillers. It is injected to create volume and help with collagen production and skin tone & texture. PRF Gel is generated by placing the blood sample within a specialized centrifuge to isolate the beneficial cells, then the sample goes through a cooling and healing process to mix the plasma’s albumin and PRF’s growth factors. This extremely potent, organic serum can instantly revitalize the skin and release rejuvenating growth factors for up to 12 months after 3 treatments. Along with rejuvenating the skin, it can restore volume, reduce wrinkles, and achieve an overall more youthful look.
