RF Microneedling with PRP at Revive Med Spa in Murphy!
Radiofrequency micro-needling is a relatively new type of skin rejuvenation treatment. This type of treatment combines the benefits of micro-needling with the collagen boosting effects for the thermal effects of Radio Frequency energy. The treatment consists in inserting micro needles into the skin distanced a few mm between each other and delivering Radio Frequency energy into the skin for a few milliseconds. With RF microneedling you are getting both the physical injury, as you do with all microneedling devices and also the added heat effect.
Skin rejuvenation with microneedling is a great procedure. However the use of Platelet Rich Plasma (which is the basis for the “Vampire Lift” with Microneedling can greatly improves the result. The researchers now know that these platelets do more than coagulation (the clotting of blood to stop bleed) ; they also release growth factors, and these growth factors play a pivotal role in maintaining firmness and elasiticity in your skin.
Preparation of PRP:
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is obtained from a sample of patients’ blood drawn at the time of treatment. After a blood sample is obtained, the blood is spun for approximately 15 minutes in a centrifuge and this separates the platelets and plasma from the red blood cells. The heavily concentrated platelets along with the plasma are combined with a fibrin mix. The solution is then injected beneath the skin or rubbed on the skin surface after micro-needling has been performed.
