Breathe New Life Into Aging Skin With Platelets

As you get older, time leaves its mark. Your skin starts to show your age with wrinkles, fine lines, and droopy skin. During the sunny summer months, the sun that warms our skin also creates dark spots and sun damage.  

At Sublime Aesthetic Professionals, with two offices in East Grand Forks, Minnesota, our goal is to help you have the healthiest and youngest-looking skin possible with our state-of-the-art treatments and services. Angie Bjorgaard, RN, BSN, and our compassionate providers understand the challenge that aging skin brings. What’s more? We know the best ways to fight back. 

The struggle against aging skin is easier than ever thanks to the cells found in your own blood: platelets. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy rejuvenates your skin without the need for invasive surgeries or foreign substances. 

Read on to learn how you can breathe life into aging skin with platelets!  

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a cutting-edge regenerative treatment that uses your body’s own platelets to boost healing and new cell production. Platelets are cells in your blood, and they have nutrients and growth factors that stimulate new cell growth.  

During your PRP session, your provider draws a small amount of your blood and spins it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets to create a concentrated solution that is 5-10 times richer in platelets than what’s found in your bloodstream. 

At Sublime Aesthetic Professionals, we combine the power of platelets with microneedling. This effective treatment combination promotes your natural healing for optimal results, giving you younger-looking skin. 

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is an aesthetic process that uses extremely tiny needles on the outer layer of your skin. The teeny pricks the needles make are too superficial to cause bleeding or pain. But they do create microscopic wounds on your skin’s surface. 

These tiny wounds send signals that more collagen is needed to repair your skin. Collagen is the key component in new skin cell growth. As the new skin grows, the appearance of sun damage, scars, fine lines, and wrinkles is diminished. 

How do platelets and microneedling work together?

PRP increases the effectiveness of microneedling by further stimulating new cell production to maximize the results of your treatment. Even better? PRP speeds up the natural healing process microneedling triggers, meaning you’ll see noticeable results sooner.

Microneedling with PRP also increases collagen production. This means your results last longer than those gained through topical treatments. With the combined powerhouse of platelets and microneedling, your skin looks younger and fresher, longer. Booster treatments can help keep your skin looking its best for the long term.
