Does PRP Help Sagging Skin?

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Skin Care

Platelet rich plasma has many benefits for the skin. From helping plump certain areas to providing a healthy glow, cosmetic PRP is becoming a go-to cosmetic treatment. However, what exactly can platelet rich plasma treat? Does PRP help sagging skin?

Like with many cosmetic procedures, it depends. If treating mild wrinkles, then PRP injections are a good option for creating more collagen and treating the wrinkles. However, more obvious wrinkles likely will not respond to PRP alone. Therefore, platelet rich plasma may help with treating mild sagging skin.

However, PRP is also frequently used in facelift surgery to help promote ideal healing and reduce scarring. In this case, platelet rich plasma does help treat more advanced skin sagging in combination with surgery. Studies have shown better outcomes and results when using PRP during surgery than not.

Is Microneedling With PRP Permanent?

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Skin Care

Microneedling is a well known esthetic procedure that helps stimulate collagen production. A way to supercharge it is with platelet rich plasma—also known as PRP. Since PRP is integral to the natural healing process in the body, this causes your body to react faster and better improves the results of microneedling. Let’s look at the question, “Is microneedling with PRP permanent?”

While undergoing regular PRP microneedling sessions may make a permanent improvement in the quality of your skin, the procedure is generally not considered permanent. This is because if you do not undergo it regularly, the skin will eventually become damaged again. It also does not take as long when compared to surgical procedures.

However, microneedling with PRP can make a long lasting difference. For example, the treatment is often used to reduce the appearance of acne and surgical scars. These results may be effectively permanent in some cases.

The Benefits Of Combining PRP Microneedling And Chemical Peels

By | PRP Skin Care

Microneedling with platelet rich plasma is a powerful resurfacing and medical grade exfoliation treatment that induces collagen production and can improve skin quality. While a great treatment on its own, PRP microneedling can be alternated or combined with other skincare treatments. In particular, chemical peels are a fantastic choice for treating your skin post microneedling with PRP. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of combining PRP microneedling and chemical peels.

At PRP In Seattle, our master estheticians saw great results from alternating PRP microneedling and chemical peels that they created the Glow Up Package with PRP. This six procedure package includes three PRP microneedling sessions and three chemical peels. Each procedure is performed somewhere between four and six weeks apart.

This allows the skin to heal between each session, but also for it to treat new skin for better effects. Therefore, this technique can treat and improve many skin concerns including acne scars, redness, wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation issues, and more. It can also help prevent acne breakouts.

Combining PRP microneedling and chemical peels is also completely customizable for each patient. It is likely no two patients will undergo the exact same peels or treatment regimen during the Glow Up Package with PRP. To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 206-279-2112.

Does PRP Lift Skin?

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Skin Care

Platelet rich plasma is becoming a powerful tool in both the medical and cosmetic spheres. At PRP In Seattle, we focus primarily on cosmetic uses of platelet rich plasma such as in hair restoration and skin rejuvenation. A common question for people wanting to use PRP to improve their skin and for anti-aging purposes sometimes ask, “Does PRP lift skin?”

The best answer to this question is that it depends on the state of your skin. For patients with more advanced signs of aging that may benefit more from surgical correction, PRP is unlikely to provide the results they want. However, for patients just beginning to experience wrinkle formation and loss of skin elasticity, platelet rich plasma skincare may provide improvement and a slight lifting and plumping effect.

It should be noted that platelet rich plasma is not a permanent solution to lift the skin, but it does increase and induce collagen production. This collagen production can reduce the look of wrinkles, repair damaged skin, and prevent aging. Microneedling with PRP is the most effective procedure in this regard. When combining platelet rich plasma and microneedling, this is one of the best all around procedures for improving the look and quality of your skin. This can include addressing the early signs of aging.

Microneedling With PRP vs. Without

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Skin Care

Microneedling is a medical grade skincare treatment that makes small punctures in the skin to induce collagen production. The healing that takes place can reduce the appearance of acne scars, pigmentation issues, and smooth a rough texture. Since healing is taking place, master estheticians sometimes use platelet rich plasma to enhance this process. What is the difference between microneedling with PRP vs. without?

When you choose to add PRP to microneedling, the microneedling will push the platelet rich plasma deep into the skin. PRP is a component naturally present during the healing process and signals to your body that there is a wound that requires attention. Therefore, when your body senses this additional PRP, it will increase the blood flow, white blood cells, lymphocytes, and other necessary components for healing. 

Whether or not you utilize PRP, microneedling is a powerful treatment that can benefit nearly any skincare routine. However, if you have more severe acne scarring or concerns, PRP may provide an additional level of healing that can make further enhancements to the skin. At a consultation, your master esthetician can determine whether PRP microneedling or traditional microneedling will best meet your goals.
