What is Microneedling with PRP?
Lincoln Park Aesthetics offers microneedling with the Plasma IQ Pen. This procedure creates small openings in the skin on your face, neck, or chest that stimulates skin repair. Your own platelet-rich plasma may also be applied to the same area to help tissue heal and allow the skin to begin growing new cells. These two procedures together can decrease the appearance of scars, fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, large pores, and other skin problems. The texture of your skin will be greatly improved without damaging the epidermis. If you'd like to find out more about microneedling with PRP, schedule a private consultation with one of our experienced, licensed providers at Lincoln Park Aesthetics.
Microneedling with PRP Reviews
A great candidate for microneedling with PRP using the Plasma Pen is anyone seeking to modify the look or feel of the top layer of their face. Uneven skin tone, dry skin, rough texture, loose skin, age spots, wrinkles, acne, and scarring are skin conditions that may benefit from microneedling with PRP therapy. This therapy can also be used to fight the effects of sun damage that might have caused your skin to have a rough texture or hyperpigmentation.
Our Microneedling and Platelet-Rich Plasma Techniques
Before the microneedling part of your treatment, someone from our team will take a sample of your blood for your PRP collection. The blood will then be taken to our lab for the separation process where your platelets, growth factors, and regenerative cells can be turned into PRP. For microneedling therapy, Lincoln Park Aesthetics employs modern technology, like the Plasma Pen, to create small holes in your skin. The tiny needles used won't damage your skin but will instead help stimulate the production of collagen. Once the microneedling is finished, the PRP serum will be applied to the skin to sink in. Once the PRP is fully absorbed, we'll remove the serum and cleanse your skin.
What to Expect
Following your microneedling with PRP treatment, you might experience some regular effects, such as swelling, bruising, and redness. We recommend that patients avoid using makeup, exfoliating skin cleansers, or submerging in pools for around three days post-treatment. Activities such as these could expose your skin to strong bacteria and chemicals, which could lead to adverse reactions. You also need to intentionally avoid sun exposure or use protective steps when planning to be outdoors. Final results are generally seen within several weeks as the skin works to fix and heal itself.
Microneedling can be quite beneficial for people seeking to get back the original look and texture of the skin. It can help make skin appear smoother, younger, firmer, and luminous. We invite patients to learn more about this treatment by talking to one of our certified aestheticians or by scheduling a consultation at our Chicago, IL practice today.
