Skin rejuvenation with microneedling is a great procedure. However, the results can be greatly improved with Platelet Rich Plasma or Growth Factors. Microneedling alone increases the skin’s new collagen and remodel old deforming collagen which is found in scars and wrinkles. Old frayed deforming collagen is associated with wrinkles, acne scars, scars, large pores and stretch marks. Microneedling makes facial skin look youthfully thicker and reduces signs of aging, i.e. wrinkles, large pores, skin laxity and facial scarring from acne.
The use of Growth Factors and Platelet Rich Plasma (which is the basis for the “Vampire Lift”) with Micro-Needling improves the results of micro needling. The reason is that growth factors are important for new cell generation and cellular functions, such as creating new collagen and elastic fibers. Growth factors come in many different varieties and are extremely abundant in our platelets. (These are the small cellular particles in our blood that stop up small blood vessels when we get cut.) Each platelet has 3 different granule types which are released when they are activated.
What is a platelet replacement product? Choice Aesthetics Medspa offers a PRP product called Core. This unrivaled serum of highly concentrated, targeted growth factors and cytokines is a huge break through. Additional benefits of this serum verses your own platelets: reduced inflammation and downtime and Core has a higher concentration of growth factors. Core is a science-based product from Omni Bioceutical Innovations. This also avoids the dreaded blood draw and keeps treatment cost affordable.
Microneedling will create access for platelets to enter the skin. The platelet growth factors nor any other growth factors would be of no benefit if just rubbed on the skin. Once the platelet serum is deep in the skin their granules are activated and wonderful things start to happen.
As your skin is healing, although this procedure has minimal downtime, the growth factors in a higher concentration that would normally be found induces extra collagen, new cells and increased normal vascularity of the skin. This has a profound effect of the look of our skin.
