Micro-Needling with PRP available in Toronto
Micro-Needling is a popular non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that has been endorsed by celebrities such as Kim Kardashian. PRP, short for platelet-rich plasma is a treatment that utilizes the patient’s own blood to rejuvenate the skin and stimulate the production of new collagen.
When combined, PRP and Microneedling will help address concerns such as age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, poor laxity, stretch marks and lack lustre skin. Additionally, PRP and MicroNeedling combined are a great way to brighten one’s complexion while also evening the skin tone and smoothing skin texture. At Clarity Medspa in Toronto, micro-needling combined with PRP allows for fully customized treatment plans that produce visible results.
What is PRP?
PRP, or platelet rich plasma, has long been used to help speed up recovery from injuries. The regenerative properties of PRP are also perfect to help skin heal, triggering increased production of collagen which ultimately, leads to skin that is more plump and firm. Collagen is essential for repairing skin and allowing for elasticity .. and PRP can help kick-start the entire process.
PRP is very safe as it is formed from the patient’s own blood, meaning there is no need to worry about an allergic reaction. The process involves drawing a small blood sample, centrifuging/spinning it to separate out the plasma and then applying to the patients skin as a topical solution.
What is MicroNeedling?
Micro-needling is a non-surgical treatment in which tiny needles are used to create microscopic channels in the skin. While choosing the right micro-needling system for you can be daunting, at Clarity we prefer t work with Micro-Needling that utilizes RF. These tiny channels then allow for solutions, such as PRP to penetrate deeper and work more effectively. The tiny micro-injuries from the needles also challenge the skin’s healing powers to move into high gear.
Is there downtime when MicroNeedling with PRP are combined?
Feedback from Clarity Medspa clients confirms that this is a fairly easy treatment to endure citing it as “relatively painless” Micro-needling with PRP is a quick procedure with almost no downtime. While there might be some temporary redness or swelling, this disappears fairly quickly allowing one to resume activities within a few hours or by next day. It is because of the speedy recovery time that this is such a popular anti-aging treatment option.
Benefits of combining Micro-Needling with PRP:
If you are suffering from acne scars, wrinkling, sun damage, stretch marks, brown spots or drab and tired looking skin you may be a good candidate for combining these two treatments. On their own, Micro-Needling and PRP produce visible results with little to no downtime. Combined the benefits are exponential.
