Platelet-Rich Fibrin Facials With Microneedling
As we grow old, our skin ages and becomes loose and less elastic. The main reason for this is the reduction in fibroblast cells, which are building blocks of collagen proteins that help keep our cells strong and connected. Aging results in wrinkles and sagging, which makes our skin appear very dull, but there is a way to combat this process through microneedling.
Obviously, we can’t stop aging; but we can definitely slow that process down. Dermapen’s goal is to give everyone a chance to look healthier and feel better as we age. Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy, which is a safe and chemical-free method to trigger new collagen production.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling therapy is a very simple procedure that uses a hand-controlled device with tiny, shallow needles to puncture your outer layer of skin to create a controlled skin injury. This damage to the skin will stimulate your body to produce new collagen and elastin. The freshly produced collagen will rejuvenate your skin by filling in fine lines, resulting in an overall improvement in the texture and tightness of your skin by removing the wrinkles, scars and stretch marks that can make you look younger as you age.
Additionally, microneedling is not restricted to the face. It can be used on many other body parts, such as arms, legs, neck, back, hands and abdomen.
One microneedling session generally takes 30 minutes. At first, your skin will appear a little bit red — similar to a light sunburn, but your skin will return to normal in a couple of days. The natural growth of collagen will not happen instantly; it takes place over weeks and months. This treatment is not designed to be an “instant fix,” but is intended to improve the health of your skin in the long term.
Are There Any Side Effects Or Risks?
While micro-needling is an effective treatment for wrinkles, large pores, and scars, it’s still a cosmetic procedure, which means that there are some risks attached. The most common side effect most patients will notice is minor skin irritation or redness after the procedure. If you notice any serious side effects, such as bruising, peeling, bleeding, or infection, ensure to consult your doctor immediately.
Our team of physicians at Love To Smile is competent and qualified to safely use micro-needling to treat wrinkles, scars, and large pores. Your comfort and beauty are our priorities. We’ll work with you every step of the way to ensure that you get the best results possible. From the initial appointment to consistent follow-ups, Love To Smile will ensure that you get the best treatment possible.
Is Microneedling For Everyone?
While this procedure is ideal for all skin types and tones, it isn’t for everyone. You may not be able to treat wrinkles, scars, and large pores with micro-needling if you fall into one of the following categories:
- If you’re pregnant
- Have open wounds
- Have a history of skin scars
- Have recently undergone radiation therapy
- Have certain skin diseases like eczema and psoriasis
How Many Treatments Are Required?
The number of treatments is predicated on two things: the first being the results you want to achieve, and the second being which part of the body treatment is being performed on. For wrinkles or stretch marks, depending on the severity, you may need four to eight microneedling treatments to achieve optimal results.
Please note that all treatments are spaced four to six weeks apart to ensure the health and safety of your skin. The risk involved in microneedling treatments are minimal. After a treatment, dry skin or red discoloration may occur, which will typically subside within a week.
Preparing For Your Microneedling Treatment
You’ll want to consult with your physician before undergoing the procedure. Our doctors will advise you on the necessary steps to take to ensure the best possible outcome. You may be advised to stop taking some medications, such as acne treatments and ibuprofen, weeks before your procedure.
We may also ask you to stop using topical retinoids to minimize the risk of having certain side effects. Book an appointment with us today to discuss what to expect and how to prepare for your treatment.
