Beautiful, fresh, glowing skin is an asset, giving the face and body a youthful appearance. A professional skincare regime helps to maintain, preserve and protect skin from sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles – but as time passes, collagen production slows, and topical treatments are not enough. When it is time to take a bigger step to rejuvenate your skin, microneedling with PRP may be the right treatment option. This is one of the latest, most effective innovations in aesthetics. At Nassif Medspa, we recommend Beverly Hills microneedling with PRP to many of our clients – we see dramatic results from this treatment.
Microneedling is a treatment that involves the use of tiny needles that produce micro-injuries to the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural collagen production – that substance that provides flexibility and strength to skin and body tissue. To speed the healing process, microneedling is further enhanced by injecting PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) into the treated tissue. The PRP is obtained from drawing a small amount of your own blood, from which the plasma is separated to concentrate healing properties. Microneedling with PRP can be used in several different areas of the body, including the face, neck, arms, décolleté, arms, abdomen, back, hands and legs.
PRP is created from a person’s own blood, and is a concentrated blend of plasma cells and specific growth factors. When injected into tissue, it bathes the cells to naturally stimulate the healing process. This advanced technique is often used by professional athletes who need to recover as quickly as possible, to help to reduce recovery time. As a regenerative technique that accelerates the body’s natural healing processes, in conjunction with microneedling, the treated area of skin can restore and rejuvenate for a firmer, more youthful texture and flexibility.
At Venus Rising Med Spa microneedling with PRP is available to adults who want to improve the appearance of the skin on various body areas. Microeedling is also an effective treatment for reducing the appearance of stretch marks. It is a safe and effective treatment for all skin types. The depth of the microneedling will be adjusted for each individual and the body areas to be treated. This low-risk treatment is appropriate for clients with darker skin types and for clients for whom laser treatments would be inappropriate.
Before your treatment begins, a numbing gel is applied to the area so the process is comfortable. The appropriate depth for the microneedling will then be selected, based on your skin type and condition. Our clients report that the treatment is not uncomfortable, with a sensation like a light sandpaper moving across your skin. Our microneedling treatments require about one hour to complete, depending upon the size of the body area to be rejuvenated.
After your treatment, you will notice immediate results, which will continue to improve over the next few days and weeks. As your body’s natural collagen production is now stimulated, you should see the texture and quality of your skin continue to improve for up to six months. Recovery time is about one to three days depending on how aggressive the treatment. You will be provided with all the information you need about caring for your skin after microneedling and provided with an after care kit to ensure you have the best healing in the days following the procedure.
Microneedling with PRP is any effective, highly advanced technique to trigger natural collagen production in the skin tissues. At Venus Rising Med Spa, our mission is to provide our clients with the most modern, positive treatments to preserve, maintain, and restore skin on the face and body. We believe microneedling with PRP can do wonders for skin that has begun to show the signs of age. Your body’s natural healing processes are accelerated with PRP, and as the collagen production increases, your skin regains its natural elasticity, smoothness, firmness, and glow.
