Why Should Men Consider Microneedling With PRP?
One of the most common misconceptions that so many people have is that plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments are meant only for women. And while it’s true that women tend to undergo cosmetic procedures more frequently than men, that does not mean that men cannot benefit greatly from the services available. Just like women, men often struggle with skin issues on their faces. Blemishes like wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and sun damage can cause men to feel self-conscious and even embarrassed. But, the good news is that there are treatments available to help men regain the soft, smooth facial skin they desire. One of the most trusted and successful treatments is microneedling. However, at The Fountain of Youth Medical Spa in Knoxville, Tennessee, we up the game by combining microneedling and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment for complete facial rejuvenation.
How Is This Treatment Performed?
Microneedling with PRP is a combined procedure that stimulates the production of collagen in your skin. This collagen helps your body to heal itself naturally. And the best part is that this treatment usually takes less than one hour to complete.
While the concept of microneedling may seem unconventional, this minimally invasive treatment offers patients dynamic results. For this treatment, a topical ointment is used to minimize any discomfort during the procedure. Once the ointment is applied, your skin professional will use the/ Rejuva pen or SkinPen to create micro-injuries to the target areas. These micro-injuries are created by tiny needles that penetrate the upper layer of your skin.
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, which acts as a natural healing agent for the micro-injuries created. Before your microneedling session, your skin care professional will extract blood from your body (usually from the arm). This blood is then processed to separate the PRP. After the SkinPen® has made the necessary micro-injuries, the PRP is applied. The platelet-rich plasma is then absorbed into the skin through the micro-channels created from the microneedling process. Once the PRP has been applied, your treatment session is complete.
While microneedling with PRP has many positive qualities, one of the most notable is that there is little to no downtime associated with this procedure. So, you will begin to look younger than you have in years before you know it.
