As skin ages, it loses a substance called collagen that keeps the skin soft, tight, and supple. The result can be fine lines and wrinkles as well as hallow areas. Aging skin may also have scars from acne or other sources and may have dark spots or uneven areas. All of these problems can be treated with microneedling with PRP dallas therapy. At The Botox Bar in Dallas, TX and Red Oak, TX we can provide you with these cutting-edge treatments that will bring you brighter and more youthful skin.
Benefits of Microneedling With PRP Dallas
Removes Broken Capillaries
When capillaries break under the skin, the result is spider veins and other red marks. This treatment will allow these broken capillaries to renew themselves. Red marks and spider veins will begin to disappear, and skin will appear healthier, younger, and more even.
Reduces Acne Scars and Other Scars
When acne flares, one of the consequences can be scars that last for many years. Even if you no longer have acne on your face, you may have scars that formed when you were struggling with acne as a younger person. This treatment can reduce or even eliminate these scars and allow your skin to heal.
You may also have scars that have occurred for reasons other than acne. Injuries or previous medical treatments can sometimes leave scars. These can often be diminished, and sometimes eliminated, with the right therapy. Microneedling with PRP Dallas TX may help the scarred skin repair itself.
Minimizes Oversized Pores
The pores in your skin allow air to come in and out, keeping it healthy. However, dirt and oil can easily become trapped in your pores from everyday life, sweating, and oils from touching your face. When this happens, the pores in your face expand and can stay that way even when the dirt and oil are removed.
This treatment can help reduce these pores by causing the skin to rejuvenate. This creates new, tighter pores that are not obvious when others see you.
Balances Skin Tone
Years of harsh weather conditions, skin treatments, and other abuse of the skin can cause your skin tone to become uneven. When your skin is refreshed and renewed, the tone evens out. This creates a younger, brighter appearance.
Wrinkles and fine lines form over time as the skin loses naturally occurring substances like collagen and hyaluronic acid that keep the skin plump and smooth. When the skin is encouraged to naturally replace these missing substances, the result is that wrinkles are eliminated.
Makes Skin Glow
A healthy glow is a hallmark of youthful skin because the skin on your face becomes duller over time. This is due to outside factors as well as the aging process. This treatment will renew your skin and that glow of your youth will return.
Replaces Supple Texture of Skin
Skin can become sagged over time, which can cause fine lines and wrinkles to appear. This is also what causes loose areas of skin on the face in places such as the jowls. Microneedling and injections of PRP can repair the skin so that its texture is supple and springy once again.
Skin will become tighter and firmer after this treatment. Areas such as under the cheekbones and around the temples will fill in and become tighter and firmer.
Lightens Dark Spots
Exposure to the sun and other harsh conditions can cause dark spots to appear on the skin. When the skin is rejuvenated, these dark areas are lightened and brightened. This makes the overall skin tone appear younger and more vibrant.
The Right Tool
A special tool is used for microneedling which is also sometimes called collagen induction therapy, dermabrasion, or skin needling. The tool has many different tiny needles that cause small punctures in the skin. These punctures are damage that allows the skin to repair itself.
The microneedling process begins with cleansing the face to make sure that no bacteria will enter the skin through the needling tool. The microneedling tool is always fully sterilized to avoid introducing bacteria to the skin.
We will apply a topical anesthesia to the treatment area in order to ensure that you are comfortable throughout the duration of the treatment.
After cleansing and topical anesthesia, the microneedling tool is rolled over the face so that the needles will sink in slightly and cause a very small amount of damage to the skin.
Microneedling works by creating damage that then stimulates the skin to use its natural ability to renew itself. Microneedling tricks the skin into creating natural substances to heal itself.
The PRP injection process is completed after the microneedling and involves using the patients’ own blood to renew and regenerate the skin. The first step is to take blood from a different area of the body. Once this blood is taken, the plasma can be separated.
Separation of Platelet Rich Plasma
The blood is then placed in a centrifuge where it is spun at a high rate of speed to separate the red blood cells from the platelet-rich plasma, or PCP. This is the part of the blood that will help the skin repair itself. This must be taken away from the red blood cells to be properly used.
Injection of PRP
When the platelet-rich plasma has been separated from the red blood cells, it can then be injected into the face. The skin uses its natural healing abilities to further rejuvenate itself and replace old skin with new, vibrant skin.
Once the PRP process is over, the skin produces collagen and becomes rejuvenated overall. As it heals, the skin repairs itself to create tighter, firmer facial skin.
The timeline for results of microneedling with PRP dallas therapy varies depending on the problems that are being addressed. An overall glow and supple, vibrant quality to the skin will be seen within a few weeks of treatment. Scars, like those from acne or from other causes, could take longer to heal. It may be as long as 9 months before you see fading in scars. The same is true of dark spots caused by sun damage or dark areas of the skin with other causes.
Many people repeat needling and PRP therapy treatments several times to get the results they want to see. We will help you schedule additional treatments as necessary. Many people choose to have 3 to 6 sessions with about 4 weeks between each treatment session.
The first step in the process will be to have a consultation about your skin needs and the best treatment options for you. We will talk to you about microneedling with PRP dallas therapy to see if it is a good choice for you. We will also talk about your expectations and discuss how many treatments may be needed to fulfill those expectations.
At your consultation, we will ask questions about your medical history, including questions about your lifestyle like whether or not you smoke and drink alcohol. We will also ask you about any skin treatments you have done in the past and how you felt about the results of those treatments. We will ask about allergies and medical procedures you may have had done.
Skin Care Products
Before your treatment, we will ask you to avoid certain skincare products that contain harsh chemicals that can dry out or irritate the skin. These include products like retinoids, topical antibiotics, and products containing acids. If you have a question about using a specific skincare product, please ask a member of our team.
There are also specific medications we will ask you to avoid before your treatment. These may include over-the-counter pain relievers like aspirin or ibuprofen. Some of these products contain anti-inflammatories or blood thinners. The treatment actually acts as an inflammatory, which is part of what causes the skin to heal itself. These medications can interfere with that part of the process.
Avoid direct exposure to the sun in the weeks before your treatment. The treatment cannot be completed if you have even a mild sunburn. If you are going to be outdoors in the sun, always wear a protective covering or use sunscreen.
You will also want to avoid any laser-based treatments to the skin on your face. If you have questions about treatments to avoid, please ask a member of our staff to clarify what must be avoided.
Do not wax any part of your face in the days before your treatment because this can irritate the skin and cause damage that interferes with the treatment process.
You should also avoid shaving any parts of your face before the day of the treatment. Shaving can cause irritation as well as cuts that can contain bacteria.
You will need to avoid certain supplements in the weeks leading up to your treatment. These include supplements that may thin your blood such as fish oil, OMega-3, and vitamin E.
Be sure that you do not have a cold sore during the time of treatment by taking an antiviral medication just before the day of your treatment if you are prone to cold sores.
Be sure you inform us of any tattoos you have in the area that is going to be part of your treatment.
You will need to continue to avoid anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen, Advil, or Motrin as your face is healing. The inflammatory process is important to the skin having the proper reaction to the treatment, and these medications can interfere with that.
Do not ice the area that was treated because this is also an anti-inflammatory measure that can interfere with the proper reaction of the skin.
Avoid tanning after the treatment has been completed as it can irritate the skin and lead to damage.
For the best results from the treatment, avoid direct exposure to the sun. If you go out into the sun, be sure to wear sunscreen or a hat to shield your face.
A More Youthful, Vibrant Face
Microneedling dallas followed by PRP therapy will stimulate the natural healing process in your face. The skin in your face will make new collagen, a substance that plumps and rejuvenates the skin causing wrinkles, sun spots, and acne scars to fade or even disappear. This treatment is preferable to surgical procedures and does not involve spending time in a hospital or a long recovery process.
Call us at The Botox Bar in Dallas, TX or Red Oak, TX for a consultation about microneedling dallas and PRP therapy treatments that will bring you that more youthful, supple skin you want to see. You will look and feel years younger once your treatment sessions are complete.
