How can I obtain facial rejuvenation with PRP microneedling?
Dr. Christopher Naranjo and his dedicated team at Greenbelt Dental Health of Austin, Texas, provide quality dental services and have integrated other procedures into his practice to better serve his patients. This includes PRP facial rejuvenation with PRP injections and traditional microneedling.
How does PRP microneedling work?
PRP microneedling is a minimally invasive skin procedure using the patient’s own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) combined with tiny needles to penetrate the skin and stimulate collagen production. During the treatment, PRP is applied topically to the skin before the microneedling device is used to create hundreds of microscopic punctures in the target area. The PRP then seeps into these channels, delivering its potent growth factors deep beneath the surface of your skin where they can work their magic. This stimulates an increased production of collagen and elastin, which leads to smoother and firmer skin with improved texture and tone.
What can I expect from PRP microneedling?
Patients may experience mild discomfort during this procedure but are typically able to return to their usual activities within a few hours. Results can vary from person to person, but generally, patients report smoother and firmer skin with improved tone and texture.
How many treatments of PRP microneedling will I need to see the results?
Most people require between one or two treatments for desired results, though additional maintenance treatments may be necessary depending on the individual’s circumstances. As with any cosmetic procedure, discuss your expectations with a qualified medical professional like Dr. Christopher Naranjo before commencing treatment.
What are the benefits of PRP microneedling?
PRP microneedling offers several distinct advantages over other procedures that stimulate collagen production, such as laser resurfacing or chemical peels. For example, this procedure does not involve any heat or chemicals which could cause inflammation or damage delicate skin cells. The growth factors in PRP are known to accelerate healing and reduce downtime. Because the procedure is 100% natural, using only the patient’s own growth factors, there is no risk of an allergic reaction or other side effects.
