Microneedling with Plasma
Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation procedure which has gained popularity recently as celebrities share their experiences with this treatment on social media. Microneedling utilizes small needles to puncture the skin and stimulate collagen production to the areas treated. Dermatologists can now supplement this treatment with the use of a patient’s own plasma to boost the effects of microneedling. This anti-aging procedure, combined with plasma therapy, restores healthier, younger looking skin by stimulating cell growth regeneration instead of using injectables for the skin.
Microneedling creates small puncture wounds in the epidermis and dermis of the skin, promoting wound healing and triggering restorative skin rejuvenation. This treatment is particularly effective for patients with pigmentation problems, such as sunspots on their face, arms, and chest. The technique is also proven effective for clients with atrophic acne scars.
How does Microneedling with Plasma Work?
Plasma is derived from your own blood and is a natural solution to many anti-aging problems. Plasma therapy combined with microneedling can restore your skin to a younger appearance by stimulating the cell growth to that portion of your body, resulting in an overall faster, more effective treatment for anti-aging effects.
After consultation with your physician, a technician will draw your blood and spin it down using a centrifuge to separate the blood cells from the plasma. The plasma will be drawn into vials to inject with microneedling into specified areas previously discussed by you and your physician. Topical numbing cream is applied before the procedure begins to maximize the patient’s comfort level.
Downtime and Expected Results
The procedure itself will be completed in less than an hour. The patient may experience redness to the area treated, which should subside completely within 12 to 48 hours. Some sensitivity may occur for several days.
Your dermatologist will speak with you on your expected results and post-treatment care. Microneedling with plasma is a highly sought anti-aging procedure that can be utilized every 4 to 6 weeks. The results are often remarkable and multiple treatments can be offered to achieve maximum results for patients with pigment problems, acne scars, and fine lines and wrinkles. During a consultation, your physician will discuss your goals, the treatment procedure, and your expected results.
