Microneedling with PRP

microneedling patient

Finding new and effective ways to resurface the skin, not just the outermost layer, but deep in the dermal layer, is one of the ways we bring treatment benefits to our patients. The best options are backed by clinical evidence. One of our favorite results-based tools that keeps patient recovery time and comfort in mind is our nonsurgical, minimally invasive microneedling skin resurfacing treatment. Microneedling stimulates collagen production firming skin and improving elasticity along with scars and wrinkles.

Microneedling allows us to create micro-injuries in the skin to a controlled depth and without administering heat energy which prolongs recovery time. Used both on body and face skin including delicate areas such as the décolletage allows us to treat both sensitive and resilient areas. Our patients at Calabasas Med Spa appreciate this new method of skin repair to resurface and restructure their once glowing, beautiful skin.

We Can Slow the Aging Process

Losing elasticity and strength in these tissues is an issue that we need to address as early as possible to avoid further damage to the skin. While aging is an inherent fact of life, it’s not necessary that we let it get out of hand. We can do something about these changes and hold them off as long as possible. But don’t let fine lines and wrinkles be your starting point to get on the ball and look at the condition of your skin. At Calabasas Med Spa, we offer complimentary skin care consultations to give you medically insightful tips to correct your skin concerns using the most beneficial treatments before visible changes are apparent.

We work with our clients to completely restructure degrading tissues at a safe depth that will call on the body’s natural mechanisms to repair years of damage and slow the process of future damage. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) infuses the dermis with your own growth factors and nutrients needed for collagen and elastin production. Microneedling using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an outstanding treatment for the health and vitality of your skin.

What is Microneedling and how does it work at Calabasas Med Spa?

Increasing collagen and elastin production internally as well as helping the skin absorb essential vitamins and nutrients during the process of application is the purpose of our microneedling and PRP treatments. Elastin and collagen fibers are the healthy building blocks of tight, evenly textured skin. Microneedling is done using a hand-held device with 12 or more microneedles at the tip; these microneedles make tiny punctures in the skin in an evenly spaced manner. Natural healing processes are activated once these micro-channels are made in the skin.

As we apply microneedling to the skin and infuse your body’s own supply of nutrients and additional growth factors, we implement our platelet-rich plasma as a thin layer on the skin so that the plasma can fill in these micro-channels and begin to work its magic. Platelet-rich plasma is derived from your own blood drawn before your microneedling treatment and centrifuged to separate your red blood cells from their white counterparts. Certain white blood cells contain the body’s natural growth and strengthening factors, which when applied to the newly broken skin can help increase circulation and reduce scabbing or bleeding after the procedure along with promoting firmer, smoother skin. Using this all natural, nutrient-filled serum is a revolutionary technique.

Depending on the degree of improvements you require, we may recommend anywhere from three to six treatments, and each treatment is set about a month apart. At Calabasas, we help our clients reach their skin goals with full skincare treatment plans.
