Perhaps this is your first time reading about PRP facial treatments, or PRP with the addition of microneedling for facial rejuvenation. Kim Kardashian famously underwent this beauty treatment and posted a bloody photo of the after math on her Instagram.
The cosmetic and aesthetic benefits of PRP plus microneedling are many. Ranging from the boosting of skin cell growth to improving skin texture and the smoothing of fine lines. Below are one of the many case studies showing just how immediately effective and aesthetically transformative PRP facials can be.
Here at Gentle Touch in Orange County, we specifically micro-needle with Platelet Rich Plasma (or PRP). PRP comes from your own blood. The nutrient-rich plasma is separated out using a centrifuge and is reinjected into the skin using a needling or rolling method. PRP increases the benefits of needling immensely. Your body’s own healing mechanisms are extracted and concentrated on the exact areas you need them most.
Our Orange County cosmetic clinic has developed a special microneedling technique that stimulates your body’s natural healing process, while also targeting key metabolic privations on the face. The small needling involved will stimulate the body to heal and with healing comes collagen and elastin production, as well as higher cell-turnover.
These natural body processes work to reverse and prevent signs of aging, scars, wrinkles, and pigmentation issues. Microneedling can be done on its own, or with added nutrients. At Gentle Touch, we have created a unique blend of vitamins and nutrients that get ‘rolled’ into the skin. These mineral rich concoctions increase the results, efficacy, and benefits of the entire needling procedure.
Micro-needling with PRP is minimally invasive and relatively painless.
Clinical and scientific evidence has shown that on average, patients with skin or facial blemishes who undergo PRP with microneedling notice a marked improvement in smoothness, fineness and glow.
In an in-depth cosmetic dermatology study conducted in 2017 for the scientific journal Cutis, distinguished New York dermatologists, Dr. Hashim and Goldenberg, tested the effects of PRP with microneedling on patients with facial scars, acne and other cosmetic blemishes. The doctors found that:
“Scars on the right side improved by 62.2% and scars on the left side improved by 45.8%; prior to treatment, both sides demonstrated similar severity scores, but final severity scores were significantly reduced in the microneedling plus PRP group relative to the microneedling plus distilled water group (P<.00001).”
