PRP, Peels and Microneedling

If acne, fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, or brown spots have ever made you wish you could just start over with all new skin, the good news is, you can. The expert dermatologists at Millburn Laser in Millburn, New Jersey, offer a variety of treatments that don’t just make your skin look better but actually rebuild it. Best of all, they are professionals at using minimally invasive techniques to completely rejuvenate your skin and refresh your look without a single incision or significant downtime. 

You can choose from state-of-the-art, minimally invasive skin renewal treatments, including:

  • Microneedling
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy
  • Chemical peels

Depending on your needs, you can combine skin treatments for the most dramatic, longest-lasting results. How do you choose which technique will give you the firm, flawless skin and healthy glow you desire?  

Chemical Peels reveal fresh new skin

Chemical peels are a simple, fast, and cost-effective way to slough off old skin cells off your face, remove dirt and debris, and reveal a fresh, bright layer of skin that rewinds to a younger you. As we age, the speed at which our skin cells turn over and replace themselves slows down. The result is a dull, dry outer skin layer, also known as the epidermis, that looks aged and lifeless. Acne also slows down your skin’s renewal process because your follicles are clogged with excess sebum, dead skin, and bacteria.

As the acid in a chemical peel gently exfoliates the outer layer of your skin, it also instigates a wound-healing process that makes your skin produce essential proteins, such as collagen and elastin. Just as the rate of cell turnover slows as you age, so does the production of collagen and elastin. 

After a peel, the skin on your face disposes of old collagen and elastin that have lost their strength, replacing it with fresh new strands of protein. Over time, your skin remodels itself with new collagen and elastin — literally creating new skin from the inside out. The benefits to your skin is that it is firmer, tighter, and has smaller, less visible pores.

Depending on your skin and aesthetic needs, we may recommend:

Light peel — a light, “lunchtime” peel gently removes your epidermis without causing significant redness. You can get a light peel every month or so to keep your skin looking fresh and radiant. Light peels are great for removing brown spots — including melasma — and smoothing fine lines.

Medium peel — these stronger peels also remove the skin’s second layer (the dermis) to help improve acne, scars, and wrinkles. Your skin may be red and peeling for up to two weeks. You can have a medium peel once a year.

Strong peel — a medical-grade peel that removes precancerous lesions, such as actinic keratoses. Strong peels also help improve the look of deeper wrinkles, creases, and scars. 

Chemical peels are a great first step to refresh your look on a budget. Regular light peels can be a wonderful way to maintain the benefits from other, more high-tech treatments, including lasers and microneedling.

 

Microneedling remodels from the inside out

Just as you need to break down your muscles before building them up, creating healthy new skin also begins with a wounding process. Microneedling is a technique that uses a dozen or more tiny needles to create micro-wound channels in your skin. The needles break up old collagen and elastin and initiate your body’s healing and collagen remodeling processes.

We may recommend:

  • SkinPen® — the first FDA-cleared microneedling device to rejuvenate collagen growth
  • AQUAGOLD® —features gold-plated needles that deliver serums and PRP therapy
  • Morpheus8 — pulses radiofrequency (RF) energy through needles to accelerate wound healing and tighten skin

Once we choose the system and needle depth that’s right for your skin issues, the procedure is performed. You can see an immediate difference in the tone and texture of your skin directly after your microneedling treatment. Over the next weeks to months, your skin rebuilds itself with new collagen and elastin to improve the look of:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Sagging
  • Melasma
  • Brown spots
  • Creases
  • Large pores
  • Spider veins
  • Acne scars

Microneedling enhances the look, texture, firmness, and health of your skin wherever you need it. Microneedling is a great way to tighten aging neck skin or revive a crepey-looking decolletage. You may need a series of microneedling treatments to get the firm, youthful, and healthy looking skin you desire. You may also choose to further boost your microneedling therapy with PRP.

Remodel Faster With PRP

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a cutting-edge treatment that has been used for about 10 years in sports medicine to help super athletes, like Tiger Woods, accelerate healing after an injury. The same principles that help athletes recover and rebuild injured tissue can now be applied to aesthetic issues in your face and other areas.

Your doctor creates the PRP serum from the healing platelets in your own blood. After a small amount of blood — just a couple of tablespoons — is drawn from your arm, it only takes a few minutes to spin the blood in a centrifuge to isolate healing platelets. Platelets are the parts of your blood that clot to rebuild your skin when you’re injured.

Platelets are filled with growth factors and other substances that jumpstart your body’s collagen remodeling process. Whether added to a facial micro-needling treatment or injected into areas you’d like to improve, such as scars and wrinkles, a PRP treatment helps your skin renew itself and become stronger and more resilient.

You can use a PRP facial treatment to:

  • Tighten skin
  • Lift skin
  • Decrease pore size
  • Smooth out wrinkles and fine lines
  • Erase brown spots
  • Improve overall skin tone
  • Create a healthy, youthful glow

A PRP treatment can be combined with other therapies for your face, including injectable dermal fillers and Botox®.
