The stars of the red carpet are among the most beautiful people in the world and it’s no secret that they employ a variety of different skin care techniques to stay that way! One of the latest beauty tricks is a mix of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy and micro-needling treatments that utilize the body’s own systems to rejuvenate the skin and reduce wrinkles.
You may have likely seen the term “micro-needling” used in passing. Well it’s time to fix that. Read on to learn how micro-needling in combination with the “PRP facelift” can give you movie star-style skin:
What is Micro-Needling?
Picture a cross between a tiny machine gun and a syringe. This device is a micro-needling gun, and is the key instrument in PRP treatments. Micro-needling guns are precision instruments with a rate of painless injections that can be customized by your skin care specialist. This level of precision and control that micro-needling uses makes them the perfect tool for delivering mesotherapy treatments.
Mesotherapy is a type of cosmetic procedure where your skin care specialist will carefully use the gun to inject substances into the subcutaneous tissue—the “skin under the skin”—of targeted areas on your neck and face. In the case of PRP therapy, the targeted areas will be wrinkles and skin creases that need to be filled or evened out.
Where Does PRP Come In?
PRP therapy is where your own blood is drawn and the platelets are separated via centrifuge. This solution is then injected via the micro-needling gun into the desired sections of the skin to deliver a large dose of platelet-derived growth factors that stimulates the skin rejuvenation process and collagen production.
Skin care specialists performing a PRP micro-needling delivers a concentration of growth factors that serves to enhance the healing response and allows for more organized collagen production and longer-lasting results than more typical filler treatments.
The cost of PRP therapy—both in terms of money and side effect risks—are lower than many other advanced skin rejuvenation treatments. The most complex part is the centrifuge, everything else is relatively simple (i.e. the micro-needling gun) or provided by your body (i.e. blood and healing factors).
Since no foreign substances are used, there is no risk of rejection or an adverse reaction. The skin rejuvenation being harnessed is something your body does every time you’re injured, except that with PRP therapy, the process is used to enhance beauty rather than create a scar.
