Microneedling & PRP
By now, you’ve likely heard of microneedling, and we’re sure you’ve heard of Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) treatments. If you haven’t heard of the benefits of having these treatments done together, we’re so glad you’re reading this. Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that can be done with or without radio frequency, and involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles. The result? Tighter, smoother skin thanks to the spike in collagen production.
PRP treatments have been favored by both doctors and athletes alike for the ability to improve recovery time from injuries. It involves taking a small blood sample from the patient, spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets, and injecting these platelets back into the patient’s skin. According to this article in Medical News Today, “because the injection contains a high concentration of platelets, which can be from 5 to 10 times more than the untreated blood, doctors theorize that the platelets will speed up healing.” As a result, PRP helps with:
- Hair growth
- Tissue healing
- Inflammation reduction
Put these two treatments together and there is strength in numbers. According to findings from a case-study involving a 60-year-old patient who received a PRP-treatment in conjunction with microneedling, the combined treatments offered a minimally invasive option, with little-to-no downtime, and long-lasting effects. Doctors believe this outcome occurs because “additional growth factors and cytokines from the PRP act synergistically with the already stimulated neocollagenesis secondary to the needling leading to more rapid collagen remodeling.”
Kybella & Skin Rejuvenation
If you’re interested in Kybella for a specific area of your face or body, it’s likely that skin rejuvenation treatments would make sense for you as well. That’s why we love this skincare pair and highly recommend this cocktail to soothe your sagging-skin woes. Kybella is an injectable that destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, AKA the double chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. Patients have even requested these injections for other stubborn fatty areas, like the dreaded bra-fat pockets on the back and around the armpits.
Laser skin rejuvenation treatments are typically administered with non-ablative lasers that target deeper layers of the skin for immediate results. Skin rejuvenation has become one of the top requested laser treatments in the aesthetic world for its ability to not only refine texture but tighten skin as well.
Pair Kybella injections with any skin tightening laser treatment and you’re in for a full beauty overhaul.
HydraFacial and Injectables
Perhaps the fastest way to perk up your skin for a special event that is quickly approaching on the calendar is everyone’s favorite new facial, the HydraFacial. The HydraFacial is a 3-step facial that cleanses, extracts, and hydrates all in 30-minutes. It’s ideal for all skin types and especially works on:
- Fine lines + Wrinkles
- Elasticity + Firmness
- Even Tone + Vibrancy
- Skin Texture
- Brown Spots
- Oily + Congested Skin
- Enlarged Pores
Injectables, of course, are also ideal for smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, plumping up areas of your face that have lost collagen, and refining skin texture. The HydraFacial can be done prior to your next injectable session as an added boost, priming the surface of your skin for perfection.
