Wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots are all common signs of aging, all of which wreak havoc on your self-confidence and skin. If you're looking for an effective way to fight off the signs of aging, microneedling may be just what you need.
Although microneedling alone is exceptionally successful, adding PRP is an even better way to improve your appearance and diminish wrinkles and fine lines.
If you're looking for an aesthetic treatment expert, look no further than Dr. Anthony N. Dardano, DO, PA. At his office in Boca Raton, Florida, Dr. Dardano offers various anti-aging treatments, including microneedling with PRP for long-term results.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive aesthetic procedure. It utilizes tiny, fine needles to create small holes in the top layer of skin. The microneedle holes in the skin stimulate the body's natural healing response, creating healthier, ageless skin.
The secret to microneedling is how it stimulates your body to produce more collagen and elastin, which both help keep the skin smooth and tight.
As you age, collagen and elastin production decreases, leading to wrinkles and other signs of aging. However, microneedling injures the skin enough to help your body produce more proteins for a quick recovery and a youthful appearance.
Microneedling may sound painful, but there's only slight discomfort during the procedure for most people. Dr. Dardano applies a numbing gel to your face before the procedure to decrease pain.
One of the significant benefits of microneedling is that it's an outpatient procedure that requires minimal downtime, and the results speak for themselves.
The facts on PRP
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a form of regenerative medicine treatment doctors use to rejuvenate tissues in the body. It's excellent for healing wounds, regenerating tissues, and smoothing damaged skin.
A significant benefit to PRP is that we take it from your blood, making it a safe alternative to other treatments. The procedure starts with a simple blood draw from your arm.
Dr. Dardano takes the vial of blood and places it into a centrifuge, which spins the blood to separate the platelets and liquid plasma from other blood components.
The platelets are the real star of PRP, as they contain powerful growth proteins that heal damaged tissues. PRP provides many platelets into one area, allowing the growth proteins to take over and speed up the healing process.
Dr. Dardano often uses PRP with microneedling to provide the fastest and most noticeable results for a youthful glow.
Microneedling with PRP for anti-aging
Microneedling is a great option to turn back time on your skin, but the results are better when Dr. Dardano adds in PRP.
If you're living with wrinkles, acne scars, or uneven skin texture, microneedling with PRP is an option. Dr. Dardano also treats sun damage and large pores with this revolutionary treatment.
But why add PRP to an already successful aesthetic treatment? Microneedling already stimulates the body's healing response and encourages some platelet production. With the addition of PRP, however, the small holes in the skin heal much faster and provide increased growth proteins and cytokines to produce significantly better results.
Dr. Dardano performs microneedling with PRP like normal microneedling, except he adds the PRP onto your skin after using the microneedling tool. The platelets in the PRP seep into the microneedling holes in the skin and go to work right away, healing the tissues to produce an ageless glow like you've never imagined.
Microneedling with PRP is the ultimate treatment for aging skin, providing substantial results without invasive procedures or surgery. To schedule a microneedling appointment with Dr. Dardano, don't hesitate to call our office in Boca Raton, Florida, today or request a consultation on the website.
