Whether we want to admit it or not, we have all battled some form of skin problem. If you are like me, there is a good chance you are still feeling self-conscious about some skin issues like sun spots, acne scars, wrinkles or fine lines.
Microneedling with PRF has been helping me get the complexion that I have always wanted and in my mid-30s, my skin looks better than ever. Using PRF has also helped me get rid of those dark circles and wrinkles under my eyes. You know the ones that are fueled by running a 24/7 mom taxi while planning and cooking 22 meals a day, helping with Common Core math homework, cleaning the kitchen for the 100th time of the day and simultaneously running a business outside of the home?
You know what’s cool about this whole process? Our own blood helps heal our skin. Ok don’t get scared, I promise it’s super simple yet ridiculously effective!
How it works is we take a small sample of your blood to process your PRF (an easy way to say platelet-rich fibrin). Then we use SkinPen to puncture (I promise it doesn’t hurt!) your skin using a vibrating, stamp-like motion…that allowing the PRF to penetrate deeper into your skin.
The benefits are insane and almost immediate! Right after the treatment, you will experience skin tightness. Your skin may also be red for 1-2 days (like a mild sunburn) but there are no other side effects.
After day 3 you will see remarkable changes. Your skin will have an improved color and texture; it will reduce wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots & scars; and it increases your body’s collagen production, which naturally decreases as we get older. Full disclosure: I used to wear a ton of makeup to cover up my perfectly, imperfect skin. Now I don’t have to because my skin is healing from the inside out. Woke up like this, thanks to PRF.
