You’ve probably heard of the skincare term microneedling; however, you may not know what it is or what it does. This minimally invasive skincare treatment available at Neaman MediSpa is growing in popularity and is helping women all across Oregon achieve younger looking skin and a glowing complexion.
Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that utilizes tiny needles to trick the body into healing itself. It does this via a handheld device that’s gently guided over the skin making micro-injuries to the surface. These micro-injuries trigger the body’s natural response to heal itself by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. New collagen and elastin help to plump the skin and fill in lines and wrinkles to create brighter and tighter skin.
Because microneedling uses your body’s natural healing properties, almost anyone can benefit from it. There’s very low risk for adverse reaction since no harsh chemicals are used. The microchannels that are created by the needles allow for the possibility of further treatment through the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP). PRP is a serum that’s created from your blood and then inserted into the channels to penetrate your skin. It’s sort of like microneedling on steroids as it supercharges your results and produces superior facial revitalization.
Microneedling not only erases signs of aging in the form of lines and wrinkles, but it can also treat sun damage and age spots, correct skin tone, and texture and reduce the appearance of scarring.
Microneedling with or without PRP can achieve fantastic results but if you’re looking for quicker and longer-lasting results, you may want to consider a platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) treatment. PRF is similar to PRP but along with using the platelets and plasma from your blood, it also uses the fibrin matrix to control the release of the growth factors. This makes it so you don’t use up all your healing growth factors in one swoop. PRF cannot be combined with microneedling but rather must be injected on its own. It’s a great option for individuals who battle hollowness or dark circles under the eyes.
Neaman MediSpa, voted #1 medispa of Mid-Valley, offers a variety of skin care treatments to help improve the health and appearance of your skin.
