Microneedling treatments can be performed stand alone or in combination with platelet-rich plasma treatments (PRP).
As a minimally invasive aesthetic procedure, microneedling can help improve overall skin texture by addressing concerns like scars, wrinkles and large pores. The device used will make tiny pricks in the skin, causing controlled and safe injury to the skin which will ultimately stimulate the generation of new collagen.
What to Expect Following your Microneedling Treatment
After Your Treatment
- There is very minimal recovery time associated with microneedling, most people require little to no downtime following treatment.
- You may notice skin irritation and redness within the first few days following the procedure as a natural response to the small pokes made by the microneedling device.
- If you are comfortable you can return to normal daily activities immediately following treatment.
- Makeup can be applied to the face in the days following treatment to help cover the residual redness.
- AVOID sun exposure to the treated area. Ensure the treatment area is covered in sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatments
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments take advantage of the body’s natural healing and regenerative properties. It is commonly referred to as “The Vampire Facial” because the active molecules are derived from your own blood. Our nurse will collect a small amount of your blood and place it in a centrifuge to separate out the plasma. This plasma, which contains growth factors that trigger cell proliferation and promote tissue healing, is collected and used for the treatment to experience a range of benefits.
PRP for Skin Rejuvenation
PRP treatments can be a wonderful option for those who seek healthy, youthful and rejuvenated skin. The plasma that was separated from the patient’s own blood is microneedled into the skin. It can also be injected directly and more deeply into strategic areas of the face for enhanced results. A numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area to ensure you are comfortable and lead to a near-painless application.
Though only taking about an hour to complete, results can be experienced within a few weeks with continual benefit of skin regeneration lasting for months – even over a year – after the procedure. Ultimately, this treatment aims to reduce wrinkles, add youthful volume, and improve the quality of your skin.
PRP for Hair Loss
Hair loss can be experienced as a change in the hairline, noticeable thinning over the entire scalp or in specific areas, or a visible increase in the amount of daily hair loss. Excessive hair loss affects many people and has a variety of causes including heredity, medical treatments, stress, hormonal changes, radiation therapy and more. Regardless of what is causing excessive hair loss, Yazdani Aesthetics can help treat it non-surgically using PRP.
The general benefits PRP treatment offers for the skin can also be experienced by the scalp. Instead of injecting the plasma into the face, the plasma is injected into the scalp where hair growth is needed. The hair follicles are nourished and stimulated, ultimately promoting a healthy growth cycle for the hair. This treatment can also aid in the prevention of early hair loss.
How PRP Treatments Work
The platelet-rich fibrin matrix that is used for treatment contains at least 8 of the body’s own concentrated growth factors. These support rejuvenation of body tissues in several ways:
Increases the formation of new blood vessels (neovascularization) and increases blood flow to the skin, resulting in healthier skin texture and tone.
Increases new cell formation for skin renewal.
Stimulates the production of new collagen, the major component of the skin that diminishes with facial aging.
What to Expect Following your PRP Treatment
Sometimes there is recovery time associated with aesthetic procedures, even if they are non-surgical options. You should plan for a little bit of downtime following your PRP treatment, typically about 24 hours. You may experience some redness and minimal bruising, especially if combined with microneedling. While it is not recommended you wear makeup the day of your treatment (including the hours afterwards), the residual redness and bruising is usually able to be covered by makeup the day after treatment.
