SkinPen Microneedling with PRP or PRF in Monmouth County, NJ at Radiant by MD.
Although the aging process is normal and even attractive, it can negatively affect your skin. As your skin loses its natural brightness, you may see more dark patches and wrinkles on your face and chest. While the fundamentals, such as using excellent creams and eating well, can assist, there is another method that can enhance your skin's tone and texture like never before: microneedling with PRF (platelet-rich-fibrin) or PRP (platelet-rich plasma). After undergoing this treatment at Radiant by MD in Monmouth County Microneedling patients' skin will be radiant and rejuvenated thanks to the combination of the SkinPen, our doctors, and your blood.
Microneedling (also known as collagen-induction therapy) is a non-surgical procedure in which tiny needles penetrate the skin's surface to enhance the look of the skin. Skin tightening is a typical treatment that may help smooth wrinkles and fine lines, level skin tone (even persistent melasma), decrease big pores, firm skin, and remove stretch marks and acne scars, among other things. Although deliberately placing small needles into your skin may seem a bit medieval, most skin rejuvenation procedures (including lasers and chemical peels) induce a similar type of wound-healing reaction, which serves to kick-start a regeneration process at the cellular level.
SkinPen Microneedling causes thousands of micro-injuries to the skin by puncturing it with microscopic punctures at a rapid pace. This initiates a healing reaction that results in the release of a cascade of growth factors, which in turn increases the creation of the body's naturally occurring collagen (the protein fibers that keep skin smooth and supple). SkinPen Microneedling also improves the penetration and efficacy of substances by creating channels for topical medicines to be absorbed, which helps them perform more efficiently. Consequently, the skin appears to be becoming better and better with time. In addition, as a fractional treatment, it only affects a fraction of the skin's surface area, which means your recuperation time will be relatively brief.
The best candidates for microneedling are adults in excellent health (have no illnesses, fever, or rash) and want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increase collagen production, or battle scars from acne or other injuries, among other things.
However, it is not suggested for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding due to the small number of risks associated with the treatment. Those who suffer from active skin disorders, such as eczema or rosacea are also advised to avoid using this product. Additionally, if you have lupus or vitiligo, you may experience unwelcome side effects or develop lesions (called the Koebner phenomenon). Finally, cold sores can be triggered by microneedling, which makes it vital to inform your provider if you have a history of cold sores so that you can begin taking an antiviral medicine a few days before your Monmouth County Microneedling treatment begins.
Following the numbing procedure, your skin is washed and dried.
After that, your microneedling treatments may differ based on your treatment plan. For the best results in microneedling, your provider will employ varying depths based on the skin type and the area of the face that is being treated. However, digging deeper than necessary serves no therapeutic purpose.
Our Microneedling with PRP therapy is frequently the most successful skin rejuvenation and cosmetic revitalization technique for many patients. It is safe and effective for patients of all skin tones and kinds, including dark skin. The procedure is referred to as a Vampire Facial. After that, the PRP solution is rubbed into your skin to speed up recovery. Your doctor will next apply a serum to the skin, which will assist in relaxing the skin and minimize redness and inflammation. After receiving Microneedling Monmouth County patients will be provided with post-treatment instructions to ensure that your skin receives appropriate care.
This procedure is very similar to Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Plasma in that your provider utilizes a device containing hundreds of ultra-fine needles to generate micro-punctures in the skin, similar to the procedure used for PRP Microneedling. This deceives your body into speeding up the healing process, leaving you with skin that is radiant, even, and youthful in appearance. The primary difference between this operation and others is that PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) taken from your own blood is injected into the controlled damage areas to feed the cells and provide even more significant outcomes than previously.
Following treatment, a tailored serum and cooling mask are placed on the skin to help calm it down, and some providers expose patients to red LED lights to assist speed up the recovery process. Your skin will seem as though it has an intense sunburn. If you have lighter skin, you will appear pinker in color for a day or two longer than others with olive or darker complexions.
You will be able to wash your face in eight hours (or earlier if your doctor recommends it). You can even go to work the next day and wear makeup. Although your provider may suggest that you refrain from wearing any makeup on the day of your Microneedling treatment, mineral powder sunscreen is typically acceptable because it is necessary to protect skin from the sun's ultraviolet rays. Skin texture changes should be seen a week after your first treatment—most patients initially notice pore size reduction. After at least three sessions, improvement of acne scars or deeper wrinkles should be noticeable.
Among the many advantages of microneedling is the fact that it may be performed on any skin type, that downtime is low, and that the effects can be rather dramatic. With Microneedling, you may get tighter, brighter, and healthier skin than ever before. Although there is no silver bullet for acne scars, microneedling can be more successful at improving your skin at Radiant by MD in Monmouth County, New Jersey. Schedule your consultation today.
Because microneedling can be uncomfortable, a topical anesthetic cream will be given to the treatment region approximately an hour before the treatment begins to minimize discomfort.
Your provider may recommend starting with a course of three to five treatments spaced approximately four to six weeks apart to see whether your skin concerns can be resolved.
Your treatment cost may vary depending on the choice of microneedling treatment (PRP vs. PRF), the number of areas being treated, and any additional serums used. Your provider will discuss your treatment plan and session costs during your consultation.
