MICRO-NEEDLING WITH PRP ( PLATELET RICH PLASMA)
At Finger and Associates we offer Micro-Needling via PRP because it makes sense to offer healthy and effective treatment options. PRP treatments work for “Anti-Aging”, chronic joint pain and in gaining and maintaining a youthful look.
THE MICRO NEEDLING PEN
The tool used to infuse PRP into the Skin is called a “Micro Needling Pen.”
A “Micro Needling Pen” is really composed of multiple micro-needles, that creates thousands of microscopic channels (called a ‘cascade’) through the skin. The body quickly rushes to repair these infinitely small channels– by depositing collagen and elastin, by increasing blood flow to the area– and in the process restoring skin to its taut, youthful appearance.
Micro-Needling is used in the face, neck, hands, scalp and various areas of the body for skin tightening, collagen production and overall skin rejuvenation. The benefits are countless, and include smaller pores, minimization of scars and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
THE MAGIC OF PRP (PLATELET RICH PLASMA)
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is the “Healing Power” within our blood. We harvest it by drawing blood, using a centrifuge to separate the PRP from the rest of the blood cells, all within a few minutes.
PRP has been used for decades for athletes recovering from surgery, or to heal painful joint injuries as Platelet Rich Plasma contains many growth factors known to help wounds heal faster. PRP can also improve the texture and color of skin by encouraging the growth of new collagen and elastin and reversing existing skin damage.
The beauty of this treatment is that it doesn’t break down the outer layer of the skin, so there is no scarring and no down time. The body’s own growth factors simply go to work repairing the damage, which has accumulated from environmental hazards through the years. All you see is fresher, younger, skin.
The Benefits Include:
REDUCES FINE LINES
REDUCES DARK CIRCLES
STIMULATES HAIR GROWTH
WHAT IS THIS TREATMENT USED FOR?
The answer to that question depends on your goals. As mentioned before, MOST of us are concerned with aging of the face, neck, chest, and hands. PRP for “Anti-Aging Purpose” is not limited to those areas, but those are the most easily addressed. Other areas of concern might require injections with PRP. It can be utilized for scalp health, hair growth, joints or even for inflamed tendons to alleviate acute and chronic pain.
MICRO-NEEDLING & INJECTIONS WITH PRP
Micro-Needling can also be combined with PRP injections in various areas, such as under the eyes to address dark circles, wrinkles and to thicken the skin. Thicker skin wrinkles less.
COMBINING TREATMENT WITH DERMAL FILLERS
PRP is used very effectively in combination with Dermal Fillers such as:
Restylane, Sculptra, Juvederm, Voluma, (and other fillers) to create what we call a ” Liquid Facelift.” THIS IS A PERFECT NONSURGICAL SOLUTION!
