If your skin is rough, dull, and dry, you may be wondering how to restore its healthy, youthful glow. Luckily, there are several minimally invasive procedures that can get your skin looking smooth, clear, and radiant again. So if you’ve been wondering – How can I stimulate healthy skin, we offer some effective options below.
Stimulating healthy skin with microneedling/PRP
Microneedling is a popular cosmetic procedure that regenerates the skin, and treats skin conditions such as wrinkles, scars, skin laxity, and stretch marks. The procedure is done using tiny needles contained in a pen like device that is passed over the skin, and creates controlled injury wounds in the dermal and epidermal layers.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a procedure that uses growth factors obtained from the patient’s own blood, to rejuvenate the skin. A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient’s arm, after which it is spun in a centrifuge to isolate the plasma and platelets from the red blood cells. The solution is then injected into the targeted areas of the face.
How microneedling/PRP stimulates healthy skin
Puncturing the skin during microneedling activates the skin’s natural regenerative and repair process, and stimulates collagen rebuilding. In this way, it encourages the formation of healthy, new skin cells. Microneedling also aids with the release of the body’s growth factors, resulting in new skin cells.
When PRP is combined with microneedling, the skin renewal results are even more dramatic, because PRP enhances healing and encourages tissue growth.
The microneedling/PRP treatment also significantly improves the tone and texture of the skin.
