Poor skin can negatively impact one’s self-esteem. It is a prominent part of the visible beauty and everyone aims to have healthy skin to maintain an aesthetic appearance. However, skin can deteriorate due to multiple issues. One of the most common and inevitable reasons is aging. But other factors like poor eating and drinking habits, environment, and excessive use of skincare products can also cause poor skin.
Signs of Ageing or Poor Skin
When skin has aged, it is prone to problems like wrinkles, laugh lines, crow’s feet, dull skin tone, and stretch marks. Generally, unhealthy skin may show signs of acne, large pores, sun damage, and more.
Restoring Healthy Skin
Nowadays, there are many methods to restore your beautiful skin. Whether you have skin ageing problems or it has become damaged because of an unhealthy lifestyle, there are cosmetic options that work quite effectively to improve your skin. Microneedling is one of them.
What is Microneedling?
Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that simulates the skin’s natural healing abilities. An electronic device that is specifically manufactured for this technique is used to apply hundreds of tiny holes into the facial skin. Only the top layer of the skin is treated and the body’s natural healing mechanism kicks in to build collagen. The induction of natural collagen allows the skin to get rid of multiple issues. Microneedling may be used on other parts of the body as well.
Microneedling with PRP
Combining microneedling and PRP can produce even better results for healing your skin. PRP or platelet-rich plasma is a treatment that uses the client’s own blood. This means that it is specific to the person getting the treatment. The blood is drawn and processed for separating the platelets. These platelets are then applied to the skin area that needs to be healed.
Microneedling and PRP is a powerful skin healing technique because the tiny holes allow the platelets to absorb deeper into the skin. Since the platelets belong to the person, their skin will easily accept them too. This makes the healing process easier and more natural.
Benefits of Microneedling with PRP
The main benefit of microneedling and PRP is the fact that your body is not using any external element to get treated. The skin is tricked into producing natural collagen and the PRP is like the body’s very own beauty serum. Other benefits include that pain is minimal and so is downtime. Many people may become apprehensive about the application of tiny holes. However, the holes are only made on the top layer, which has fewer nerves. Therefore, the chance of feeling pain is quite small.
Microneedling and PRP, also called vampire facial, produces long-lasting results. Patients are instructed to follow up the procedure with basic skin care along with protecting it against exposure to the sun. This allows the skin to stay in healthy condition for a long time after the procedure is completed.
