Microneedling with PRP! Get your glow on this Summer!

7/26/2018

Ready to get glowing skin during this Houston summer and beyond? Microneedling with PRP can give you just that! Collagen induction therapy, or microneedling, is an excellent way to reverse years of built-up damage, counter the signs of aging, and keep your skin looking fresh and healthy all year long.  As you know, Houston has been terribly hot lately and sun damage and dry skin are certainly a problem.  Let us tell you how to combat some of those undesired changes.

What Can Microneedling Do for You?

Microneedling treatments with PRP are safe and effective for women and men of all skin types. This quick and easy procedure can be a welcome alternative for individuals who would prefer to stay away from lasers or other MedSpa treatments. We perform microneedling with SkinPen® at Body by Ravi Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics. Dr. Gopathi can customize your SkinPen microneedling therapy based on your unique skin type, concerns, and goals in order to accurately address a wide range of skin issues, including: 

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Enlarged pores
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Acne scars
  • Dull, rough, or uneven tone and texture
  • Skin laxity
  • Stretch marks

More Than Meets the Eye

While you will definitely notice an immediate boost in the quality of your skin after a SkinPen® microneedling treatment, there are also benefits that continue to take place underneath the skin’s surface. All of those tiny purposeful injuries caused by the microneedles will encourage your body to generate new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid cells over time. That means your skin will gradually continue to improve as the weeks go by. If those skin-rejuvenating benefits aren’t enough, you’ll also start to notice that your topical skincare products will work better too. All of your lotions, creams, moisturizers, and serums will not only go on more uniformly, but they’ll also be even more effective after your microneedling session. Don’t forget about makeup, which will glide on smoother and look less clumpy and won’t settle into creases. Plus you may actually need less makeup, which is definitely a win-win.

Adding PRP to the Mix

While microneedling treatments with SkinPen® are an amazing anti-aging approach all on their own, you can take your rejuvenation sessions to a whole new level by combing them with PRP, which stands for platelet-rich plasma. PRP is a concentrated form of your blood plasma (liquid portion of your blood) with amplified levels of those all-important healing elements. Plasma is chock full of growth factors, stem cells and platelets that have been scientifically shown to stimulate tissue creation and repair. Combining your microneedling treatments with PRP can further tissue regeneration, collagen creation, and enhance the procedure’s overall effectiveness.

Who Should Avoid Treatments with the SkinPen?

Be sure to bring up any skin concerns you may have with Dr. Gopathi as this treatment isn’t right for everyone. You should avoid microneedling if you have active acne or skin cancer in the targeted area; open wounds, sores, or irritated skin; an allergy to stainless steel or anesthetics; a bleeding disorder or dysfunction; are pregnant or nursing; or are currently taking drugs that contain the ingredient isotretinoin, such as Accutane.
