Microneedling: The Secret to Unlocking Youthful, Glowing Skin

Microneedling by saltaestheticsbar in WILMINGTON, NC

Youthful, glowing skin is a common aspiration, and advancements in skincare are making it more achievable than ever. Microneedling has become a favored technique due to its effectiveness in rejuvenating the skin. This treatment can enriched by combining it with a Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM), utilizing the body’s natural growth factors to amplify the results. Whether addressing fine lines, wrinkles, or skin texture, this combination offers a promising solution for achieving radiant skin. With minimal downtime and a natural approach, microneedling with PRFM is quickly becoming a go-to method for those seeking comprehensive skin rejuvenation.

What is Microneedling?

By carefully puncturing the skin with small, fine needles, microneedling is a relatively simple cosmetic procedure that improves the appearance of the skin. Due to the body’s innate ability to mend itself, these micro-injuries encourage the creation of collagen and elastin. A skin’s firmness, elasticity, and youthful appearance are maintained in part by the vital proteins collagen and elastin. Fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and uneven skin texture are just a few of the skin issues that microneedling can effectively treat by promoting new collagen strands.

The procedure concerns the use of a specialized device equipped with fine, sterilized needles. The device is gently moved across the skin’s surface, creating micro-channels that can also enhance the absorption of topical treatments applied during or after the procedure. Microneedling is versatile and can be achieved on different body areas, although it is most commonly used on the face, neck, and décolletage.

Following the surgery, the skin may seem red and somewhat swollen, resembling a moderate sunburn; however, these effects usually go away in a few days. The result is smoother, firmer, and more radiant skin, making microneedling a popular choice for individuals seeking to rejuvenate their appearance.

What is a Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM)?

Platelet-rich fibrin Matrix (PRFM) is an advanced form of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) used in various cosmetic and medical treatments to enhance healing and rejuvenation. A minute sample of the patient’s blood is taken, and it is processed in a centrifuge to create PRFM. Red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets are among the components of blood that are separated during this procedure. The platelets are then concentrated and mixed with a fibrin matrix, stabilizing the platelets and prolonging their activity.

Unlike traditional PRP, which typically provides benefits for a short period, PRFM offers an extended-release of growth factors and cytokines, making it more effective for stimulating tissue repair and regeneration over time. The ability to clear away fine lines and wrinkles, enhance overall skin tone and texture, and renew the skin all make PRFM a highly effective technique.

The enhanced stability and sustained release of growth factors with PRFM promote collagen production and accelerate the healing process. This can lead to more noticeable and longer-lasting improvements in the treated areas.

Benefits of Combining Microneedling with PRFM

Combining microneedling with Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM) offers many benefits that enhance the overall effectiveness of the treatment. Here are some key advantages:  

  1. Enhanced Collagen Production: PRFM amplifies the collagen-inducing effects of microneedling, leading to more significant improvements in skin firmness and elasticity​​.
  2. Accelerated Healing: PRFM’s growth factors accelerate the skin’s natural healing process, reducing downtime and allowing for quicker recovery compared to microneedling alone​.
  3. Improved Skin Texture and Tone: The combination helps to smooth out skin texture and even out skin tone, making it particularly effective for treating scars, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines​.
  4. Natural and Long-Lasting Results: Since PRFM is derived from the patient’s blood, it provides a natural rejuvenation method. The effects are long-lasting because PRFM releases growth factors over an extended period.
  5. Increased Effectiveness: Microneedling creates microchannels in the skin, allowing the PRFM to penetrate deeper and work more effectively, leading to better overall results​.
  6. Versatility: This combination can be used on various body parts, including the face, neck, and décolletage, making it a versatile option for comprehensive skin rejuvenation​.
  7. Safety and Minimal Risk: Using the patient’s own blood minimizes the risk of allergic reactions or adverse effects, making the treatment safe for most individuals​.
  8. Enhanced Hydration: PRFM can help improve the skin’s hydration levels, contributing to a plumper and more youthful appearance​.

The Procedure: Microneedling with PRFM

On the day of the treatment, you will start with a blood draw, which is similar to a routine blood test. The blood is then processed in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) from other components.

Once the PRFM is prepared, the skin is cleansed thoroughly to remove any impurities. A numbing cream is applied to the treatment area to ensure comfort during the procedure. This usually takes about 20-30 minutes to take full effect. During this time, your practitioner will explain the process and answer any last-minute questions you might have.

After the skin is adequately numbed, the microneedling begins. A specialized microneedling device with fine needles creates microchannels in the skin. The sensation can be described as a mild prickling or buzzing, but the numbing cream helps minimize discomfort. The practitioner will adjust the needle depth according to the specific areas being treated and the skin’s condition.

As the microneedling progresses, the PRFM is applied topically to the treated areas. The microchannels created by the needles allow the PRFM to penetrate deeply into the skin, enhancing its regenerative effects. In some cases, the PRFM can also be injected into deeper layers of the skin for targeted rejuvenation.

The entire microneedling session, including the application of PRFM, typically takes about 45-60 minutes. After the treatment, the skin will appear red and slightly swollen, similar to a mild sunburn. This redness usually subsides within a few hours to a couple of days.
