Not excited about your 30th birthday because you think you will look old now? No doubt skin issues are a major concern for women entering this age bracket. Many are afraid of skin sagging and losing its natural elasticity.
But this shouldn’t stop you from living your life to the fullest. Skin tightening is an advanced process which is nearly painless. It also delivers quick results. Micro-needling and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) are the two most sought after methods for skin tightening.
Let’s have a look at the details of both these procedures.
What is Micro-Needling?
Also known as ‘Collagen Induction Therapy’ it is a reliable skin tightening method. Here tiny needles are used to puncture the skin at specific points to maintain the collagen and elasticity. One can get the following benefits from this treatment.
• Lightens stretch marks on the skin
• Increases tightness and firmness of the skin
• Reduces the size of pores
• Fixes broken capillaries and spider veins
• Removes scars and wrinkles from the skin
• Improves the texture of skin and adds a natural glow
Treatment Process –
During this treatment, the doctor pricks your skin with a fine needle-like tool. This is done evenly across the skin to achieve better results. An hour before the procedure the doctor applies a topical anaesthetic to reduce chances of pain. Following this 30-minute treatment, the doctor applies a calming cream.
Warnings – The most common side effect is redness and slight irritation on the skin. However, this is not harmful. If you are suffering from any of the following conditions, you should not opt for micro-needling treatment.
• Skin disease like psoriasis
• Open wounds • Radiation therapy
• Severe skin scars
What is PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma?
PRP are injections which are used to enhance the micro needling process. It uses your own blood platelets to revive your skin. Platelets have the power to increase collagen and elastin production which helps to repair skin tissues.
Treatment Process – For the PRP process, blood is drawn from the arms in a syringe. This blood is then put inside a centrifuge to separate the PRP from the blood. This PRP solution is then gently massaged onto the face either during or after the micro-needling treatment.
Possible Side Effects – The most common side effects of a PRP injection are bruises and inflammation. They last for a period of 3-4 days following the treatment. It is advisable to avoid sun exposure during this time. Since the PRP contains your own blood, there is no chance of infection. By combining micro needling and PRP treatments you will see amazing improvements on your skin within a very short time. Even though combining both the processes may be a bit costly, the results are worth it.
