Here's How Microneedling Can Help Turn Back the Clock on Your Skin

There’s nothing that can be done about getting older, but your skin doesn’t have to look old and tired. There are actually treatments that can turn back the clock on your skin and make it look young, vibrant, and healthy again. Microneedling is a fantastic option.

At Integrative Primary Care in Houston, we take this one step further and combine microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Dr. Syed Farhat A. Zaidi and Dr. Imran Baig integrate the two procedures for faster healing and better results. And this can help with a variety of skin issues. Let’s reverse what age and the environment have done to your skin. 

Skin damage

The older we get, the more our skin is exposed to multiple elements that can cause it harm. Age will naturally reduce the elastin and collagen in the skin, and things like sun exposure, poor diet, and not enough hydration can make this worse. Other skin issues that arise are: 

The microneedling treatment

You need to be proactive and take care of your skin by wearing sunscreen, drinking enough water, and eating a healthy diet. But this won’t reduce the damage already done. Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that can reduce wrinkles, lines, scars, pores, and general aging. It works by lightly puncturing the skin with tiny needles, which in turn causes new collagen and skin to grow back.

While microneedling does break the skin, it does not go deep enough to cause scarring. In fact, microneedling makes your body heal itself naturally. And Dr. Zaid and Dr. Baig add the additional step of PRP, where they take a small amount of your own blood, place it in a centrifuge at high speed, and then inject the highly concentrated, platelet-rich blood back into your skin. You may see some redness and irritation over the next few days, but within 6-12 weeks, your skin will look younger and healthier.
