The passing of time brings with it many joyful moments — like the birth of a child or the start of a long-awaited vacation — but unfortunately, it also brings along signs of aging. For many, fighting those signs is an ongoing process, but don’t worry — Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center is here to help you battle those wrinkles and fine lines with the area’s best anti-aging treatments and skincare products.
As the premier dermatologist in Deerfield Beach, Dr. Green offers one of the best skincare procedures on the market called microneedling with platelet rich plasma (PRP).
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that helps reduce the signs of aging by using a special roller or device with needles that prick your skin. The tiny punctures trigger the skin to repair, thus stimulating collagen production. It should be said there are at-home devices available, however, not all treatments are created equal, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. Remember, this procedure does use needles so for proven results, and to avoid the possibility of infection, it is best to visit a sterile doctor’s office. Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center only offers our patients the best skincare treatments and for this specific procedure we are proud to use the only FDA-approved device on the market.
What is PRP?
This platelet rich plasma procedure happens when your own blood is drawn and the plasma is separated and injected into you or applied onto a surface of your skin. The PRP treatment is thought to promote healing, is used to help treat several conditions and it’s been used successfully for anti-aging as well. During a microneedling treatment, PRP can be added and it’s been seen to create more tightness in the skin and speed up recovery.
What To Expect
The microneedling procedure itself takes about 30 minutes to complete. Then your blood will be drawn, processed, and the PRP solution will be massaged into your face. Bruises and inflammation are common after the treatment, but usually disappear within a week. We advise that you avoid sun exposure and harsh skin treatments after this procedure to allow your face proper time to heal.
What Results Can I Expect?
This procedure will result in tighter, smoother skin. However, it won’t stop the aging process unfortunately. Medicine still hasn’t discovered the fountain of youth. Until then, it will be necessary to continue to maintain your youthful skin with follow up appointments and treatments. Of course, there are several tips to help you keep your skin healthy, like avoiding the sun directly, wearing daily sunscreen, moisturizing and never picking or scratching your face.
