One of the most promising cosmetic treatments is microneedling. Microneedling with platelet rich plasma (PRP), a technology developed by Dr. William Foster at the University of Florida, is one of several alternative therapies that combine traditional biomedicine with emerging science. This procedure uses a sterile, non-toxic injection to stimulate the production of platelets, the part of the blood cell responsible for blood clotting. In the past decade, there have been numerous studies and reports of the benefits of this treatment, including the ability to reverse signs of aging. This procedure involves the use of a fine needle to inject a very small amount of platelet rich plasma into the affected area.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), a treatment derived from plasma platelets, has proven beneficial in clinical trials. PRP injections help repair the skin and underlying connective tissue, as well as promoting new blood vessel growth. Studies have shown that the production of new collagen and elastic fibers is increased with continued treatment. This is the result of platelet rich plasma being able to increase the production of collagen fibers within the body. When the body begins to age, the production of collagen decreases. As an alternative therapy, PRP is injected into the skin to stimulate the skin’s natural production of collagen.
Other benefits of this procedure include improved skin tone, fewer scars, reduction of redness, smooth recovery, and enhancement of the skin’s texture. It is important to note that the effects of microneedling with platelet rich plasma are not permanent; results are only evident after a few months of repeated injections. The effect is also not realized over time due to platelet binding to the injured areas. One thing to remember is that continued exposure to the sun can cause dryness of the skin; therefore, reapply at least once every six months or so.
The use of microdermabrasion and other types of treatments may not be recommended by a medical professional or dermatologist. Many individuals have tried homeopathic remedies and other treatments without success. Many people have also experienced side effects from these medical treatments. When it comes to microdermabrasion and microneedling procedures, your medical professional can provide you with more information regarding the treatments.
Microdermabrasion is a safe and effective way to remove a small area of sun damage without causing long term sun damage. If you choose this procedure, it is important to know that you should not use any of the products designed for sun protection while you are undergoing treatment. This will increase the risk of infections and increased scarring. Microneedling provides an alternative to those who have had no success with treatments other than microdermabrasion and lathering on a topical cream. There is no need to expose yourself to the sun.
In addition to smoothing fine lines, microneedling can reduce large pores and skin texture. Fine lines around the eyes are less noticeable when fine lines around the mouth are reduced. When the skin is tightened from microdermabrasion and lather applied topically, there will be a reduction in the appearance of dark circles underneath the eyes. In addition, it can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. There are numerous benefits to using this procedure to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the face and lips.
