Our skin goes through a lot of wear and tear every day, and not just on the surface, but also the deeper layers like the dermis. The result is premature skin aging, acne, dryness, and pigmentation. Sometimes topical creams do help, but if the damage reaches the layers inside the skin, it has to be treated on a deeper level for the results to show.
Today, in this guide, we will be talking about 2 such treatments, PRP and RF microneedling, that are getting very popular. Dive in to explore!
PRP Anti-aging Treatment
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, and not just any plasma from a random donor, but the plasma of the patient. For those of you who do not know, platelets have many regenerative factors that the human body uses for repair and healing.
Doctors draw the blood of the patient and centrifuge it to extract the platelets. Those platelets are injected inside the patch of the skin that requires correction. Once the platelets reach the dermis, they produce growth factors. Those factors activate dormant collagen and make it produce new skin cells.
After a few sittings (2 to 3 are usually enough), even the folds in the skin due to volume loss are reduced substantially. The other signs like wrinkles, pigmentation, acne scars, and fine lines are removed too. In fact, PRP is also used for hair loss.
It’s one of the most popular techniques because it’s 100% safe.
This is another wonderful skin correction treatment offered at Clinique Anti Aging clinic. The purpose behind this technique is to make the body start a repair process so that new skin cells are formed.
Doctors poke many sterilized micro-needles inside the skin. Those needles work in two ways. One, they create small punctures that kick-start the body’s natural repair process and two, the micro-needles carry radio-frequency inside the skin to heat the dermis.
In order to heal the wounds, the body redirects the collagen to make new cells to replace the damaged ones. The heat from the radiofrequency increases blood flow in the dermis. It improves the texture, tone, and skin’s elasticity. It also removes deep-seated scars and signs of pigmentation.
After 4 to 5 sittings, the skin looks younger because it is composed of healthy young cells.
However, you have to understand that no treatment offers permanent results. Skin aging is something that nobody can stop. This is why you have to take follow-up sessions as recommended by your doctors for the results to prolong.
