The battle against aging skin is becoming easier thanks to tools that help rebuild your skin from the ground up — without the need for invasive surgery. And when we combine these tools with regenerative medicine, your skin benefits with renewed resources that tackle myriad skin concerns, clearing away the wreckage of the past.
At SkinMD, our goal is to offer the latest, and most effective, treatments that truly make a difference in your skin. As dermatologists, we understand the forces that are at work in aging skin and how to best address them. And by combining two techniques — microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy — we can deliver a one-two punch that sends you back in time.
To give you an idea about the effectiveness of this combination treatment, here are five benefits of microneedling with PRP therapy.
1. Calling all collagen
Microneedling is also called collagen-induction therapy, which is exactly the resource you need to combat the increasing wrinkles and fine lines that appear on your skin with each passing year. With microneedling, we create tiny micro-injuries across the surface of your skin that create a collagen response in your body.
Since the gradual loss and breakdown of collagen are primarily responsible for the increasing lack of support in your skin, microneedling works by providing the necessary wake-up call for new collagen to come online.
2. Rising skin lifts all wrinkles
With our microneedling technique, we create a matrix of tiny micro-injuries across the surface of your skin. As your body responds with fibroblasts that synthesize collagen to plug up these channels, the resulting network of renewed support lifts the entire surface of your skin, smoothing out wrinkles and sagging tissue.
3. Beyond the wrinkles
Our microneedling treatment is highly effective at tackling wrinkles, but it also addresses:
- Acne scars and other scar tissue
- Age or sun spots
- Large pores
- Uneven skin tone
Microneedling is the ultimate tool because of its versatility.
4. A platelet boost
PRP therapy has made its mark in orthopedic circles, helping patients overcome soft-tissue injuries more quickly by increasing healing resources. We use the same technique in your skin, helping your connective tissue rebuild and renew itself. With PRP therapy, we isolate your platelets, which contain powerful growth factors, and redirect them into your skin where they go to work on repairs and structural support.
5. Results that last
One of the most impressive benefits of our microneedling with PRP therapy is that we’re able to deliver results that last. Because we’re tapping your body’s own resources to rebuild from the inside out, you benefit with natural-looking results that go the distance.
Of course, aging will catch up with your skin again, at which point we can revisit this technique to hit the reset button on your skin again.
