The inevitable march of time can be cruel when it comes to aesthetics, often because it starts in the most exposed areas of your skin, namely your face. No matter how much you protect and care for your skin, time and exposure still leave their marks in terms of wrinkles, scarring, and age spots. Luckily, we have just the tool to fight back — microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, also called the PRP Facial.

Dr. Alexis Hanson, and her team of expert skin care specialists at Dr. Alexis Aesthetics in Tucson, AZ, offers a wide array of skin care treatments to help dial back the years. One technique that’s garnering incredible results among our Tucson clients is the one-two punch of microneedling and PRP.

Here’s a look at why everyone is raving about our PRP Facial.

Microneedling: An uplifting solution

Let’s first start with the microneedling itself, which is a technique we use to clear away the wreckage of the past and lift your skin. With microneedling, we use a specialized device equipped with tiny needles, that create a network of microchannels across the surface of your skin.

With microneedling, we can break up old skin concerns, such as age spots or scarring, and create a matrix of renewed support in your skin through collagen remodeling. After we pass the microneedling device over your skin, your body processes and eliminates the old and damaged skin cells.

But the real work begins deep within your dermis. The micro-injuries elicit a mild healing response in your skin, and the first to answer the call is renewed collagen support. When your body registers a weakened area of tissue, it’s all hands on deck as the necessary resources pour in to shore up the area. 

The trick behind our microneedling technique is that when collagen and cell renewal in this matrix of microchannels begins, it lifts the entire surface of your skin and smooths it out.

Enter PRP

To provide a boost to our microneedling process, we can add PRP therapy to your treatment, which is an advanced, anti-aging, regenerative technique that speeds up the healing process. 

Your platelets are enriched with powerful growth factors, or proteins. PRP stimulates collagen and elastin production, that aids in rebuilding and repair in your tissue, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

With PRP, we draw some of your own blood, isolate your platelets, and re-inject the concentrate into your skin to provide just the regenerative wake-up call your skin needs for quicker repairs and rebuilding.

A multi-solution technique

Microneedling with PRP not only provides an overall fresh, new surface of your skin, we can use it to target a wide range of skin flaws, including:

As skin care treatments go, microneedling is a jack of all trades that addresses the most common skin problems. And when you add in PRP for faster and stronger results, your skin will have a radiant glow with beautiful results in no time. Lastly, this treatment can be very effective at improving your skin at any age.
