As we age, our skin naturally begins to lose some of the resilience and elasticity that was enjoyed throughout our earlier years. This is most easily seen in how fine lines and wrinkles grow more pronounced or how your skin might feel drier or more prone to blotches. It would be folly, however, to think that your best years of beauty are behind you. It is still fully possible to have youthful, vibrant-looking skin even into your 50s.
No Such Thing as “Too Late”
Even if you have never touched a skincare product, it is never too late to begin an anti-aging skincare routine. Your skin, after all, is constantly renewing itself and each generation is another opportunity to rejuvenate aging skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and otherwise enjoy a glowingly youthful look. Two of the more effective means of doing this are through a pair of procedures known as PRP therapy and the Genesis laser facial.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a procedure that takes advantage of your body’s natural restoration mechanisms. When you are injured, say from a cut, various platelets and growth factors in the blood will trigger the mending of the skin. Part of this process involves naturally boosting collagen production and other skin elements in order support repairs. PRP therapy draws a small amount of your blood, extracts these platelets and growth factors using a centrifuge, and then delivers the concentrated solution (plus some nutrient boosters) directly into the skin via a micro-needling gun. The micro-needling makes the body aware of an “injury” and the large concentration of platelets makes the healing mechanism over-respond. Instead of mending a serious wound, the new collagen instead serves to fill out wrinkles and support the skin.
The Genesis Laser Facial
Genesis Laser facial rejuvenation refers to a pulse of laser on targeted skin. Since this is a laser, not a light, there is no radiation. This allows for an unparalleled level of precision and deep-skin penetration, where the lasers can be used to resolve problems that either originate deep within the skin such as rosacea or certain conditions that extend across multiple layers such as fine lines.
The Genesis laser facial and PRP therapy have a useful synergy that makes their combination particularly effective. Although an accurate tool, the Genesis laser can cause excessive redness or fluid buildup if used too aggressively. However, the worse your case of rosacea is, the more aggressive the treatment has to be in response. This is where PRP therapy comes into play. If you recall, PRP works by effectively sounding a bullhorn for your body’s repair mechanisms and sending them into overtime. If combined with the Genesis laser facial, PRP therapy can not only naturally boost collagen but help minimize any side effects from the laser.
