Take a look in the mirror!
If you’re lucky, you may see mostly even-toned, soft, smooth, and taut skin. If you’re like most of us, however, you’ll probably see some uneven pigmentation, a few age spots, redness, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and sagginess. Women (and men) can spend a lot of time applying expensive cosmetics in vain attempts to cover skin imperfections. Pamela Anderson, the sexual siren of the 1990’s TV show Baywatch said it best –
“Natural beauty takes at least two hours in front of a mirror.”
All of these so-called “flaws” are evidence of damaged skin. Just as a brand new car gradually loses that shiny sheen and becomes etched, dulled, rusted, scratched, and marked, our skin gets worn by exposure to the sun and environmental elements, and because of the changes that occur inside us as we age.
As we apply cosmetics to cover these skin flaws, we can’t help but wonder..
“Can we repair any of this damaged skin?”
Fortunately, the answer is YES.
At Guyer Institute’s Synergy Spa, we are offering PRP in conjunction with MD Pen micro-needling. It’s perfect for repairing damaged skin, using the healing power of your own blood to rejuvenate the skin. http://long-alarm.flywheelsites.com
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, a natural product produced by your own blood. It is obtained by drawing a small amount of blood from a patient into a sterile tube. The blood is then spun using a centrifuge to separate the PRP, which contains a concentration of stem cells, growth factors, and platelets that are very important for tissue healing. PRP has been used since the 1970’s to aid the healing process for large-scale surgeries. But, its use to regenerate skin and revitalize collagen is a relatively new procedure.
Here’s how it works so well.
After obtaining the PRP from the patient’s own blood, it is topically applied to the skin prior to the MD Pen micro-needling procedure. Micro-needling is, itself, a relatively new, non-ablative skin regeneration therapy. MD Pen micro-needling rapidly creates a pattern of micro channels just below the surface of the skin. When combined with PRP, this action rejuvenates tired skin in two ways.
First, the channels increase the production of collagen and elastin to leave skin smoother, fresher, and more uniform. And second (here is where the PRP comes into play), having the PRP already applied on the skin enables the micro-needling to channel the PRP, penetrating into the sub layers of the dermis. This increases the regenerative effectiveness of the collagen-producing PRP. This short video shows what to expect during a micro-needling treatment –
Denise Kaler, CEO of Synergy Spa, is a big proponent of this regenerative skin treatment – “I really appreciated the results of utilizing my own PRP in conjunction with a micro-needling treatment. I think it’s great that even in my sixties, I’m able to achieve glowing skin, and really improve my complexion.”
So..eliminate those hours spent in front of a mirror covering skin flaws with cosmetics. Instead, try PRP with micro-needling at Synergy Spa for a long-lasting, younger, radiant look.
