We. Just. Can’t. Contain. Our. Enthusiasm! Microneedling and Platelet rich plasma (PRP). They go together like hand in glove. Chocolate and peanut butter. Fine wine and aged cheese. Northcoast Laser Cosmetics is thrilled to tell you more about microneedling and how results can be enhanced with the addition of an anti-aging superpower: PRP, also known as “liquid gold.”
Ok, what do you have? Wrinkles? Uneven texture? Acne scarring? The procedure can target these beauty problems in a wonderful way. Here’s how it works: A numbing gel is placed on the face, and a simple blood draw is performed on our patient. The blood is spun down plasma, which is a golden color, thus the term “liquid gold.” And it certainly is, because it has many beauty-rich properties! Platelet rich plasma releases growth factors, and, when put on a person’s face during a microneedling treatment, helps stimulate collagen and elastin. The actual microneedling treatment passes many tiny needles across the skin. Those needles allow for channels to be made in the skin, and this “injury” helps stimulate collagen. It is further enhanced with the application of the PRP “liquid gold!” Our patients love it, because it is their own cells that are being used to help rejuvenate the skin. The procedure requires very little or no downtime, and is completely nonsurgical.
What happens if you’d rather not use the PRP? No problem! We have other treatment products we can apply to the skin to help give you great results, too.
By the way, most of our professional team members at Northcoast Laser Cosmetics have had a microneedling treatment, so anyone would be glad to speak with you about their experience. We are excited about it, and have seen our own results first hand!
We would love to discuss whether this technology, or any of the others we offer, is right for you. Give us a call at (440) 639-3223. Gold: The color of the summer sun. And, the color that can help you achieve more youthful looking skin.
