In cosmetic treatments, we are always looking for the next best thing – the newest technology, the fastest treatment, and the ultimate skin care products. It often seems like every cosmetic treatment continues to evolve and leave classic facials behind. But if you appreciate a bit of the old with a bit of the new, then we have cosmetic treatment you might want to consider. At RNA Medical Aesthetics in Johnson City, TN we are proud to offer PRF, a treatment that seamlessly blends nature and science.
What Is PRF?
If you have heard of PRP (platelet-rich plasma), then you already have an idea for what PRF might stand for. Platelet-rich fibrin is the next level of PRP treatments, combining the wholesome goodness of PRP with an added level of fibrin, which is responsible for the engineering of new tissue. You can think of this treatment as being an elevated PRP treatment that helps accelerate the healing of skin tissues to produce an overall perfected skin appearance.
Like PRP, platelet-rich fibrin needs a little help getting into your skin so it can work. Many fans of microneedling are already aware that PRP facials are a standard for anti-aging treatments. Platelet-rich fibrin can also be combined with microneedling techniques to open the skin and introduce the goodness of new fibrin right into the sub-dermal layers.
Why Is Microneedling Effective?
Microneedling has been making a name for itself among med spas and dermatology clinics for a while. Why? Because of its overwhelming effectiveness in addressing multiple skin concerns, including acne scarring, pigmentation, and skin laxity.
Microneedling is effective because it takes advantage of your body’s natural regenerative properties, particularly your body’s ability to generate new cells in response to injury. The microneedling technique involves creating tiny microchannels on the surface of the skin, which prompts the skin to release proteins to help heal the skin. The trick with microneedling is that these microchannels also prompt the body into boosting the production of elastin and collagen in the dermal layers, ultimately aiding in perfecting the skin surface.
Benefits of PRF Microneedling
Combined with microneedling, there are several benefits of platelet-rich fibrin. This type of microneedling:
- Rejuvenates skin naturally
- Produces skin renewal
- Diminishes the appearance of scars
- Boosts collagen and elastin production
- Improves skin tone and pigmentation
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Overall, the combination of platelet-rich fibrin and microneedling can easily address multiple skin concerns at one time. Whether your main concerns are related to anti-aging or your skin concerns are more focused on perfecting the appearance of skin, this treatment is appropriate for a broad range of skin issues.
Who Are Ideal Candidates?
There are many good candidates for this treatment due in large part to this treatment being safe to use on all skin types and skin tones. This treatment may be right for you if you want to:
- Improve the appearance of your skin
- Diminish skin imperfections
