The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an advanced medical aesthetic treatment that uses your body’s natural healing powers to rejuvenate your skin. Woodlands Aesthetics combines PRP and microneedling to deliver amazing results.
The team recommends PRP anti-aging procedures to treat:
PRP is the treatment of choice for patients who want their skin to look its best.
PRP activates and accelerates the skin’s natural healing powers.
Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that creates microtears in the surface layer of your skin. These tiny tears activate your skin’s natural healing cascade, which triggers your skin to lay down new collagen.
Collagen is a structural protein that keeps your skin strong, resilient, and youthful.
PRP is a form of restorative medicine that contains a high concentration of platelets, growth factors, and specialized proteins, which are the healing properties in your blood.
During your PRP treatment, the microneedling tool drives the PRP into your skin, accelerating the natural repair process.
The Woodlands Aesthetics team customizes your PRP treatment based on your beauty needs and goals and reviews the details of your treatment at your initial consultation.
First, they cleanse your skin with an antibacterial agent and apply a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort. They draw a sample of blood from your arm to create the PRP and then apply it.
Using the SkinPen® microneedling pen, your provider drives the PRP into the top layer of your skin to get the desired results.
Woodlands Aesthetics recommends a series of 2-4 PRP treatments set at one-month intervals to get the best results. Then, to maintain your look, the aesthetics specialists recommend additional treatments four times a year.
You should start to see improvements in your skin within two to three weeks after your first PRP treatment and continued improvements over the next several months.
To support your skin’s healing process, Woodlands Aesthetics recommends post-treatment care. For best results, follow the team’s instructions.
