Naturally Reduce Lines & Wrinkles with PRP Microneedling –
Even those New Yorkers who try to live the healthiest lifestyle are not immune to the effects of aging on the skin. Healthy living, good nutrition, and limited sun exposure can all help delay the appearance of lines and wrinkles. But, regrettably, no one is exempt from the effects of aging, heredity, gravity, stress, and other environmental factors on the body. So fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and other signs of aging are unfortunately inevitable.
Yet, many of our New York patients who live a healthy, natural lifestyle do not want to consider artificial anti-aging treatments – such as synthetic fillers. And others are just too busy for invasive skin tightening and resurfacing treatments that come with days of pain and downtime. Additionally, expensive and painful facelift surgery, with several weeks of recovery, is simply out of the question for most busy New Yorkers.
The good news is that a revolutionary new, state-of-the-art, all-natural skin rejuvenation treatment is now available at Goldenberg Dermatology in New York, NY. PRP Microneedling can organically turn back the clock on aging skin, without invasive or synthetic procedures – and with NO downtime.
Microneedling with PRP can tighten skin, reduce lines and wrinkles, improve elasticity and firmness, and minimize sun damage and dark spots – for a younger-looking YOU!
In this article board certified New York, NY dermatologist Dr. Gary Goldenberg explains how PRP Microneedling delivers natural skin rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction.
How PRP Microneedling Naturally Reduces Lines & Wrinkles
PRP Microneedling naturally reduces lines and wrinkles by activating the body’s own internal cellular repair mechanisms.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment performed in our New York, NY office. Dr. Goldenberg creates tiny but very deep channels in the skin using clinical-grade, ultra-fine needles. The microscopic “wounds” caused by the needle pricks activate the body’s natural healing processes. As the body goes to work repairing itself, it activates the production of collagen and elastin – which are the fibers that form the “building block” of healthy, smooth skin.
And, while microneedling yields fantastic results on its own, the real “magic” happens with the addition of “Platelet Rich Plasma” (PRP) to the procedure! Combining PRP with microneedling is commonly referred to as a “Vampire Facial®” by famous actresses and influencers on social media.
Platelet Rich Plasma (or PRP) is obtained by extracting a very small amount of blood from the patient’s arm. Next, solid blood cells are separated out from the liquid “plasma” using a centrifuge. The remaining liquid “Platelet Rich Plasma” is extremely high in concentrated levels of the body’s natural growth and repair factors.
The extracted PRP is then delivered deep into the lower layers of the skin (dermis) via the extremely fine and deep channels created by the microneedles. The concentrated growth factors in the PRP activate the skin’s cellular renewal process – regenerating the production of new, healthy skin tissue. So, the face becomes firmer, tighter and plumper, and old or damaged skin cells are replaced by new, healthy, tight, smooth skin!
The Science of PRP Microneedling for Reducing Wrinkles & Lines
Platelet Rich Plasma (“PRP”) has been used by orthopedic doctors and sports medicine specialists to repair joints for more than a decade. Now this same technology is available at Goldenberg Dermatology in New York, NY to harness the body’s own skin repair and rejuvenation processes.
The new collagen fibers generated by PRP microneedling tighten the skin’s structure and fill in lines and wrinkles. And the re-activated elastin production imparts youthful elasticity and “snap-back” – reducing sagging for smoother, tighter younger skin.
Additionally, PRP microneedling stimulates renewed production of hyaluronic acid – which draws and retains moisture to the skin cells, to fill lines and wrinkles and restore youthful plumpness and glow to the face.
As an added bonus, in addition to reducing lines and wrinkles, PRP microneedling also helps turn back the clock by eliminating pigmentation and other signs of UV sun damage, such as age spots.
Advantages of PRP Microneedling for Anti Aging & Wrinkle Reduction
Because PRP Microneedling uses the patient’s own blood cells to repair skin and reduce wrinkles, there is no risk of an allergic or adverse reaction. And, unlike many laser skin resurfacing treatments, PRP Microneedling is safe for every skin type and tone – including sensitive skin and darker skin colors.
PRP Microneedling is also more affordable than most laser skin tightening and resurfacing treatments. And PRP Microneedling offers the advantage of NO downtime – because it leaves the top layer of skin (epidermis) intact. Other than some slight pinkness, there are no other side-effects like peeling, blistering or post-procedure pain. So, most patients are able to return to work or their normal daily activities the same day.
And, because PRP Microneedling activates the body’s own repair processes, the treatment continues to produce improvements in skin tone, tightness and smoothness for several months! Even better, because PRP Microneedling repairs the skin on a deep cellular level, results are long lasting. Benefits of PRP Microneedling can last up to two or three years – which is much longer than synthetic fillers that often last only a few months.
