PRP Therapy and Microneedling
Facials: Currently, two of the best facials for anti-aging are platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy and microneedling. In a microneedling facial, tiny needles penetrate the skin to boost collagen production. The process can be paired with PRP therapy using your own blood — hence its nickname, the “vampire facial.”
How do these procedures help with anti-aging?
At Fountain of Youth Medical, we are here to help you reduce fine lines and wrinkles and restore the fullness of your skin. Keep reading for the top 5 benefits of platelet-rich plasma.
1. Stimulate Collagen Production
Vitamin C is an antioxidant, meaning it defends your skin from free radicals that can harm your skin. With regular use, vitamin C can help heal blemishes, reduce hyperpigmentation, and keep your skin from sagging.
2. Plump Sagging Skin
Plasma-rich therapy treatment can dramatically reverse years of skin damage in one session. By penetrating deep into the dermis to stimulate collagen production and connective tissue regeneration, skin will tighten and appear more lifted post-treatment. A
3. Diminish Acne Scars
Many people between the ages of 18 to 30 struggle with acne. If you are looking to alleviate the damage caused by acne, consider PRP acne scar injections. These injections contain a concentration of platelets, growth factors, stem cells, and other components which initiate neocollagenesis – the process of forming new collagen. By inserting the PRP serum under the scars, dermatologists can reduce skin depressions and stimulate new collagen production.
4. Treat Hyperpigmentation
Hyperpigmentation is a condition in which your skin appears discolored or blotchy due to an excess of melanin in the skin. Issues with hyperpigmentation can be addressed through microneedling with platelet-rich plasma, which creates tiny openings in the skin to promote collagen production. In turn, issues such as scar hyperpigmentation, melasma or sun spots, can be remedied by platelet-rich plasma, helping your skin stay smooth and healthy-looking all year long.
5. Improve Hair Health & Volume
Hair loss affects over 80 million Americans. Platelet-rich plasma can accelerate healing in many areas of the body, including hair follicles. Many dermatologists utilize this treatment to reduce hair loss and increase the diameter of hairs and the density of hair growth.
Microneedling has cosmetic and medical uses. You might consider microneedling if you’re concerned about:
Fine lines or wrinkles.
Loose or crepey (thin and wrinkled) skin.
Mild scars, especially those from acne or burns.
Skin discoloration or uneven skin tone.
The procedure can also help people who have medical conditions such as:
Alopecia areata (hair loss due to an autoimmune disease).
Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
