Microneedling using pulsed light is a cosmetic procedure that stimulates collagen production naturally by gently rolling thin needles across the skin and applying small platelets, which are also one of the ingredients of the platelet. PRP is the product where the high concentration of platelet is higher than the concentration of other elements in the blood. The result is an increase in collagen production. A trained practitioner will gently roll a thin hypodermic needle over the target area, being careful to avoid injury to the tender skin underneath.
The procedure has many benefits, such as reduction of redness, smoothing of wrinkles, and reduction of swelling. It is performed by a board-certified dermatologist. Many people have tried this procedure successfully, but if it does not improve your condition, you should seek advice from a board-certified dermatologist who can give you professional advice on your specific case.
Most common areas for microneedling:
The most common areas for microneedling are the neck, face, and cheeks, although it can be used on any area that you feel may benefit. There is short-term redness and temporary scabbing that usually occur after the procedure. You may feel a little sore for a day or two, but it is nothing compared to the pain you would experience had you undergone the procedure before having a hair/facial massage. However, the short-term pain will wear off, allowing your skin texture to gradually return to normal.
Main benefit of microneedling:
The main benefit of microneedling is the improvement in blood circulation. Your body will receive increased blood flow, which helps to reduce inflammation and fine lines and wrinkles associated with fine lines and wrinkles. Since the excess platelet is removed, there is less sebum produced, which is also essential for reducing acne. Also, since there is an increase in oxygenation, the capillary walls become more permeable, enabling nutrients to enter the cells. This improves circulation.
There are some risks involved when performing microneedling with ultrasound. While most risks are rare, there is one major risk: the use of lidocaine or any local anesthetic while under the procedure. Lidocaine, a type of local anesthetic, is commonly used during procedures and is safe, however, it does cause bruising and facial numbness. The use of plasma or radiofrequency coils while doing the procedure is also considered risky. If you do not plan to use lidocaine, you may want to skip the procedure entirely.
Good candidate for microneedling with ultrasound:
In order to be a good candidate for microneedling with ultrasound, you must meet the following criteria: have good skin integrity, healthy skin, and no significant adverse effects from prior treatment, such as sun exposure or heavy metals. You should also be able to tolerate the local anesthetic agent. Before you get started, you should discuss your goals with a board-certified dermatologist and a microneedling technician. Goals could include reducing stretch marks, removing acne scars, increasing firmness of the skin, and reducing wrinkles. When you have both a dermatologist and microneedling technician available to provide support, you will be able to achieve the results you are looking for.
It is important to remember that microneedling does not remove or reduce growth factors, nor does it work to correct sun damage. It works to stimulate cell growth to help improve the texture, elasticity, and smoothness of your skin. The term used to describe this procedure is called photodynamic therapy. The goal is to selectively target dark patches of your skin while leaving other areas intact. This promotes healing while reducing inflammation and scarring. A dermatology professional can help you understand the procedure and its benefits.
During your first consultation, you and your technician should determine which microneedling with PRP treatments will be best for your situation. Your doctor will likely want you to start with a lower concentration to start and will likely use either pulsed or continuous wave technology to deliver the energy needed to activate platelet-rich plasma. The technicians will then apply the local anesthetic to your skin for the duration of your treatment. The platelet-rich plasma will then travel to your damaged skin to help repair the cellular damage. After your procedure, your dermatologist will provide you with a prescription for additional treatments at a discount if you maintain a good, healthy appearance after your procedure.
