Microneedling to Improve Skin Texture

If you are looking for a way to get your skin to look younger and more rejuvenated, you might want to consider microneedling to improve your skin texture. This procedure is an inexpensive and painless way to make your skin glow.

PRP Microneedling to improve your skin texture #

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation technique that involves using a device with tiny sterile needles. These needles inserted into the skin to encourage the body to create new collagen and elastin. The result is smoother, younger looking skin.

PRP microneedling uses the same technique, but adds a boost to the process. When applied to the skin, the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) helps stimulate the production of collagen. PRP microneedling is suitable for a variety of conditions, including fine lines, age and sun spots, acne scars, stretch marks, and dull skin. Depending on the extent of the damage, it may take up to six treatments to see the full results.

Downtime #

Unlike other cosmetic procedures, microneedling does not involve a lot of downtime. Some people may experience a slight tingling sensation as well as warmth, tightness, and redness.

A consideration for beginning treatment is your health history. Be sure to let your provider know if you have any medical conditions, such as cold sores or active acne. If you do have any concerns, speak with your Livio provider.

While the PRP microneedling is effective in minimizing the signs of aging, there are some side effects to expect. Redness is the most common. However, when microneedling combined with PRP, redness significantly reduced.  After your treatment you should always wear mineral sunscreen to protect your skin.

Microneedling with PRP is a simple and gentle treatment. Several factors contribute to the overall outcome, including how many passes performed, the depth of the treatment, and the number of treatments. Most patients will need three to six treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart.

Helps produce collagen #

Microneedling helps the body to produce collagen and elastin, which keeps the skin firm and youthful.

After the first treatment, most patients see a steady improvement in their skin texture. It recommended to have follow-up treatments to maintain consistent results.

Aside from increasing the amount of collagen in your skin, microneedling can reduce the appearance of acne scars and prevent new wrinkles from forming.

You can expect to experience mild swelling and redness for a few days after the treatment. Avoid excessive sun exposure. Talk to your doctor about any potential risks if you have sensitive skin.

It is important to get a microneedling treatment from a professional to avoid skin damage and breakouts. Your practitioner will also recommend the best practices and skincare regimen post-treatment to help maintain results.
