Experience the Benefits of PRF Microneedling in Portland
If you’re looking to improve the look and feel of your skin, you might have heard about microneedling. This minimally invasive procedure uses tiny needles to penetrate the skin and stimulate elastin and collagen production, leading to smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin. But what if there was a way to enhance the benefits of microneedling even further? That’s where microneedling with PRF, or platelet-rich fibrin, comes in.
What is PRF Microneedling?
PRF, or platelet-rich fibrin, is a component found naturally in human blood that contains high concentrations of growth factors, platelets, and other regenerative elements. During a PRF microneedling treatment, a solution made from your own blood is applied directly to the treatment area while microneedling is performed.
This allows the growth factors and rejuvenating elements from PRF to reach deeper layers of your skin and deliver even more healing and rejuvenating benefits.
Microneedling Benefits with PRF
Microneedling with PRF combines the traditional benefits of microneedling with the added healing properties of PRF, resulting in enhanced skin rejuvenation. Some of the benefits of PRF microneedling include:
- Safe for all skin types: Microneedling with PRF is safe and effective for all skin types, even sensitive skin.
- Minimizes fine lines and wrinkles: Microneedling with PRF is that it effectively minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The PRF solution contains growth factors and regenerative elements that promote the production of collagen and elastin, leading to firmer, smoother skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Greater Absorption of Skincare Products: the micro-channels created during the microneedling session allow for greater absorption of topical skincare products, which can also help to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time.
- Non-invasive: Unlike chemical peels or laser treatments, microneedling with PRF is a minimally invasive procedure, meaning there is less downtime and less risk of side effects.
- Minimal discomfort: During a microneedling session, a numbing cream is applied to the treatment area to minimize any discomfort during the procedure.
- Promotes natural healing: By stimulating your body’s natural healing processes, microneedling with PRF leads to gradual and natural-looking improvements to your skin’s texture, tone, and appearance.
- Improves scarring: Microneedling with PRF is effective in improving the appearance of acne scars, surgical scars, and other types of scars.
- Reduces stretch marks: Stretch marks can be reduced with regular use of vitamin C serum combined with microneedling with PRF.
- Enhances product absorption: Microneedling with PRF creates micro-channels in the skin, allowing for greater absorption of topical skincare products, and making them more effective.
- Cost-effective: Compared to laser and light treatments, microneedling with PRF is a cost-effective alternative for skin rejuvenation.
Drawbacks of PRF Microneedling
While PRF microneedling offers many benefits, it’s important to be aware of some of the drawbacks as well. Some of the potential drawbacks include:
- Cost: PRF microneedling can be more expensive than traditional microneedling treatments, but not as expensive as laser treatments.
- Pain: While microneedling with PRF is typically well-tolerated, some patients may experience discomfort during the procedure. To minimize sensations, a topical numbing cream is usually applied prior to the microneedling session.
- Side effects: As with any skin treatment, there is a risk of side effects with PRF microneedling, including redness, swelling, and tenderness. However, these symptoms are usually temporary and subside within 24-48 hours.
