Acne scars, sun damage, and deep-seated wrinkles shouldn’t be tolerated, especially if you feel less comfortable in your skin. At Smile-Chic, we can provide a revolutionary combo of treatments to stimulate and heal your skin through the use of platelet-rich plasma and microneedling.
What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma is composed of two elements that have an essential role in our body’s healing process, plasma and platelets. In our blood, plasma makes up the liquid portion of our blood, while platelets are a type of blood cell that assists in healing, triggering cell reproduction and tissue regeneration. Platelet-rich plasma is created when our nurse practitioners separate the components from the patient’s blood samples, then are concentrated with the platelets and plasma.
This process produces an injectable solution that assists with healing and is often injected into various areas of the face to stimulate collagen production. At Smile-Chic, we go one step further and combine the effects of platelet-rich plasma with microneedling to enhance these effects.
How Does Microneedling Work With PRP?
Microneedling works to prick microscopic holes into the skin to stimulate the natural healing process, allowing the platelet-rich plasma to flow through those channels and head deeper into the layers of your skin. These tiny breaks, combined with the effects of platelet-rich plasma, can help reduce the appearance of fine facial wrinkles, scars, hyperpigmentation, large pores, and improves overall skin texture
These two treatments combined work as one of the best ways to create rapid collagen production in the skin. This treatment overall is well-suited for adults who want to improve their skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance. It comes with minimal side effects, such as swelling and redness, but after the first few days of recovery, patients often experience younger, glowing skin. It is recommended that patients receive between four to six treatments at an interval of four weeks apart to maintain their skin rejuvenation treatment.
