How Can Microneedling With PRP Revamp my Facial Skin Texture?
Poor skin texture can leave us feeling insecure or less than confident about our appearance. Forma Plastic Surgery is proud to offer microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a treatment that involves creating controlled micro-injuries in the skin. By stimulating natural collagen and elastin production, microneedling improves fine lines, acne scars, and other texture-related concerns.
Our board-certified plastic surgeons are confident that microneedling with PRP can help provide the smooth and flawless complexion you deserve. Call now to see how our Scottsdale, AZ team revamps your facial skin through this simple solution.
Do you have uneven skin texture?
Many factors contribute to the formation of poor skin texture. For example, genetics and natural aging cause our skin to become thinner and less elastic over time. Fine lines and wrinkles eventually become more prominent.
In addition, sun damage leads to unwanted textural changes. Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays can break down collagen and elastin, two key proteins that keep our skin plump and smooth. Without these support structures, facial skin starts to sag and wrinkle.
Other causes of poor skin texture include:
- Acne scars
- Enlarged pores
- Poor skin care routine
How microneedling with PRP works
Microneedling is a unique treatment that uses very fine needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. This process triggers our body’s natural healing response, which stimulates new collagen and elastin.
As these key proteins are produced, the skin starts to become firmer and smoother. New cells are also generated, which lead to an overall improvement in skin tone and texture.
Platelet-rich plasma is a regenerative substance made from your own blood. The platelets in PRP contain growth factors that promote healing. When applied during a microneedling session, PRP can help to improve results even further.
What happens during a microneedling appointment?
At Forma Plastic Surgery in Scottsdale, AZ, our team members offer the latest techniques in microneedling with PRP. The process starts with a blood draw. The sample is placed in a device called a centrifuge to separate the healing platelets from the rest of the blood. We may also numb your facial skin before starting microneedling.
Microneedling creates tiny punctures without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue, then PRP is applied to the treatment area. We ensure the solution is spread evenly, so you enjoy optimal results.
When will my skin texture improve?
Minor side effects like redness and inflammation should dissipate within 24 hours of microneedling with PRP. Patients should avoid sun exposure and hot temperatures for the first few days following their appointment. Over-the-counter medication and cool packs can soothe any irritation.
Patients experience a smoother and more even complexion within several weeks as the skin works to repair and heal itself. Forma Plastic Surgery may recommend a series of treatments to achieve your desired results, though many patients only require a single session. We will discuss your individual treatment plan during a consultation.
