PRP Skin Treatment is attracting the attention of people who desire to improve certain elements of their skin. You may be familiar with microneedling, the technique utilized for skin exfoliation and to improve collagen production. It can also utilize natural growth elements that exist in your platelets. The technique includes microneedling, but additionally, platelet-rich plasma is used.
PRP is extracted from the blood during the office visit. It is a unique and effective approach in the treatment of acne scarring, mild hyperpigmentation, and fine lines. With a PRP Skin Treatment NYC patients can rejuvenate the skin and decrease dark spots and facial lines. It dramatically improves the skin tone, makes it appear smooth, and wipes years away from your appearance, making you look younger and more radiant.
PRP skin treatments offer several benefits that help improve the way patients feel about the way they look. The greatest benefit of utilizing your blood is that it improves your skin’s capability to quickly recognize that cell production is needed. This transmits elasticity and improved collagen creation in the intended areas. A single PRP skin treatment is equivalent to approximately 3 regular microneedling sessions. Therefore, it produces results much faster and requires less downtime than some other treatments. The most common treatment areas include brows, neck, chest, and face.
Our NYC PRP Skin Treatments are simple and require minimal prep time. Prior to treatment, the area is cleaned, and a topical anesthetic is applied. The anesthetic sets for approximately 30 minutes prior to the start of the procedure. The treatment includes two steps. The microneedling part of the session requires close to 30 minutes, depending upon which area is being treated. During this portion of the treatment, a professional derma device is placed on the treatment area. A syringe is used to draw the blood, from the arm, while the anesthetic is still setting on the face. The blood is transferred to the centrifuge to isolate the PRP.
Following microneedling, the PRP solution is then massaged into the area of treatment. Microneedling creates tiny organized punctures in the treatment area, which permits PRP to penetrate. PRP is commonly inserted into areas of the skin. However, it’s growing increasingly common to combine it with microneedling.
After your NYC PRP Skin Treatment is complete, a serum may be applied to calm irritation or discoloration. The doctor will let you know if makeup can be applied to camouflage the temporary redness that sometimes occurs.
Recovery is minimal, and most patients can return to regular activities the day after treatment. You may still notice minor redness or other irritation. Refrain from overusing products on the treatment area. Clean the treatment area daily and apply moisturizer when necessary. You should avoid exfoliates and any products listing alcohol as a base ingredient. Sunscreen is crucial for added protection. Avoid strenuous activities that cause excessive perspiration until you are healed completely. Heavy or continuous sweating may lead to irritation, which could result in the occurrence of bruising. You should refrain from activities that cause excessive perspiration for at least 3 days after the PRP skin treatment. Results vary among patients and it may require several sessions before you begin to see noticeable improvements.
