Microneedling with PRP – the secret behind some of the best complexions
Most people – male and female – would like to have soft, smooth, firm skin. Many seek a natural, nonsurgical solution. Microneedling with PRP fills that need beautifully. This technique is improving complexions from Buffalo to East Aurora, Hamburg, West Seneca and Orchard Park, NY.
During a microneedling session, a special device tipped with many hair-fine needles is moved over the treatment area, penetrating to a carefully-controlled depth. This creates microscopic columns that stimulate skin’s natural healing processes, including the production of new collagen. For this reason, microneedling is sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy. Integrity of skin is enhanced as the normal lattice pattern of this fibrous protein is restored and strengthened.
Blood contains platelets which are full of growth factors intended for fast wound healing after an injury. Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, is a concentration of platelets. Applied in conjunction with microneedling, PRP deeply imbues the epidermis and dermis with a potent rejuvenation element. Since PRP is derived from a small sample of your own blood, there is no risk of allergic reaction or rejection.
While this “vampire facelift” technically involves needles, it is non-traumatic. The blood draw is handled on site at Orchard Park Dermatology, and takes only a moment. The specimen is processed in our centrifuge to separate platelets, which are re-introduced into skin through microneedling. The microneedling treatment is minimally-invasive and well-tolerated (with topical numbing). Skin may be somewhat pink immediately afterward, but this typically resolves quickly. There is no downtime following treatment – you may return to work or other activities, and wear makeup the next day.
Since improvement comes from within, results are long-lasting. However, treatment may be repeated periodically for added benefit.
