While its important to aim for proper nutrition, regular exercise, and quality skin care, sometimes we need a little help to rejuvenate the skin. The astounding effects of PRP skin rejuvenation in Rockville have patients lining up to try this new skin rejuvenation technique.
Microneedling With PRP
Microneedling with PRP is a newer addition to cosmetic treatments. This procedure creates a smooth, glowing skin with minimal downtime. Trending on social media as the “vampire facial”, microneedling with PRP is a cosmetic treatment that uses the power of your blood to address acne scars, large pores, dark circles, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and other signs of aging.
How it Works
During the procedure, your provider uses a microneedling pen to make tiny punctures in the skin’s surface. This triggers the body’s natural wound healing process which boosts the production of collagen and rejuvenates the skin. Then, PRP is applied topically to enhance the effects of the treatment.
What to Expect During PRP Skin Rejuvenation in Rockville
First, your provider will apply a numbing cream to ensure your comfort. While you wait for the cream to take effect, your provider draws a small amount of blood. This blood goes into a special machine that separates the platelet rich plasma from the rest of your blood.
Then, the provider uses a microneedling pen, which has hundreds of tiny needles, to make controlled punctures in the skin’s surface. This takes around ten minutes.
After microneedling, the provider applies your PRP to enhance the effects. Since PRP contains platelets, growth factors, and cytokines that penetrate the deep layers of skin, it helps to boost skin rejuvenation.
