Are you interested in improving your skin quality or reducing wrinkles and scars? You might consider microneedling treatments with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections. A PRP injection is a non-surgical, innovative, rejuvenation technique that uses your own platelet-rich plasma to regenerate healthy skin tissues and stimulate collagen production.
PRP microneedling in Nashville promotes tissue healing and enhances the quality of your skin. Its healing properties serve as a cosmetic treatment to reduce wrinkles, even your skin tone, and stimulate collagen production. Read on to learn more about the treatment options offered at Plastic Surgery Affiliates by our trusted beauty expert, Dr. Olivia MaDan.
The PRP Microneedling Procedure
Microneedling with PRP is a minimally invasive, in-office procedure. Dr. MaDan will use the same pen-like instrument to make tiny punctures into the skin to invigorate your body’s healing response. She will then apply the active PRP to the microneedled skin and inject it into your areas of concern.
Dr. MaDan will numb the treatment areas using a lidocaine-based topical. As the numbing cream takes effect, she will draw a small amount of blood and spin it down to separate the components. This isolates the plasma serum with platelets from your blood sample to deliver the highest concentration of growth factors. . Once Dr. MaDan activates the serum to produce the desired effect on your skin, she will inject it into the treated area to stimulate quick recovery.
After the procedure, Dr. MaDan will apply PRP topically on the skin to promote tissue healing. The platelets contain proteins called growth factors that repair aging or photo-damaged skin and stimulate skin cell turnover and new growth. The entire treatment takes about 40 to 60 minutes.
Dr. MaDan first applies a prescription numbing cream is applied to the treatment area, which reduces your discomfort. Though, you may experience the sensation of pressure, there is minimal pain with the procedure. Recovery following a PRP microneedling treatment in Nashville generally takes three to four days after a single session, but you could have a unique response and recovery time, depending on your healing abilities.
The procedure is both safe and effective. There is no risk of allergy or rejection when processing PRP from your blood. This natural procedure uses your own growth factors, making it safe for all skin types with minimal downtime.
Benefits of PRP Microneedling
The procedure stimulates your body’s natural collagen production, which is crucial to glowing skin. The efficiency and speed of PRP microneedling facials have made them a go-to solution for patients in Nashville who struggle with acne scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, and an uneven skin tone.
The procedure causes micro-injuries on your skin to stimulate inflammatory, healing factors to migrate to the treatment area, aiding with tissue repair. The growth factors stimulate stem cells within your skin to activate collagen production and cell turnover.
Dr. MaDan can also deliver PRP for hair restoration if you experience hair thinning. PRP on the scalp awakens the hair follicles and stimulates growth. At Plastic Surgery Affiliates, our hair restoration method uses PRP innovation to reactivate hair follicles for more dense hair growth.
