As the rise of noninvasive and minimally invasive cosmetic anti-aging treatments are on the rise, we are taking notice here at California Vein Specialists. Our diverse population of male and female clients looking to cosmetic advancements in reducing early signs of aging has brought us skin of all types and at every level of the aging process. We intricately understand the complexities of the skin, the importance of its delicate and consistent care as well as the certain aging symptoms.
In our late twenties, these aging concerns come to light since the majority of us are out and about, exposing our skin to ultraviolet rays which cause photo damage, high winds and other abundant, harmful chemicals floating throughout the atmosphere each day. At California Vein Specialists, we are ready for our patients at every turn with solutions to all of these skin care concerns so that you can embrace your youth by taking control of your skin and stopping cellular damage internally in the appearance of your skin. We recommend our patients try one of the leading cosmetic rejuvenation treatments today known as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) combined with the restructuring benefits of microneedling.

What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?
Think of Platelet-Rich Plasma as an ultra-effective and all natural skin serum that promotes longevity and rebirth for your complexion. Using patients’ own blood to extract healing PRP has been in use in surgical procedures for a long time, since the 1970’s, but only recently have we seen it effectively applied to the surface of facial tissues. This naturally derived serum is entirely safe, and among the most natural forms of cosmetic restructuring offered today.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is found by taking a few vials of the patient’s personal blood supply and centrifuging these vials for twenty minutes as we clean and prepare the skin. The blood separates into a few layers, PRP being one of them which is a clear or slightly pink serum, that we then place into a syringe for use in our PRP with microneedling youth enhancement and volumizing treatment. Within this blood plasma rich with platelets, we find healing stimulants that will work along with growth factors to promote in-depth healing within the deepest layers of the skin that need it the most.
These growth factors are present in the blood when an injury happens such as a blunt force injury causing bursting of a blood vessel or broken capillary when fibers come together to create a protective matrix of fibrous protective tissue. As this healing process begins, collagen fibers are stimulated and grow into a live support system to strengthen the skin. Elastin is the another thread that we need to help our skin maintain that healthy youthful bounce we need to make sure we don’t suffer from loosened layers, victims of deep lines and wrinkles.
Microneedling Implements PRP
How we get this PRP into the facial skin and dermal layer beneath, is through this process of microneedling. We mentioned preparing the skin as the blood goes through the centrifuge system to bring out these blood platelets that we add to a syringe and inject them into the skin, but also on the surface to effectively treat all the cells we want to strengthen and restructure. Cream anesthetic is lightly added to the skin as we wait for the PRP serum then is wiped away, followed by facial cleansing. A layer of PRP is massaged into the skin, and we are ready for our microneedling tool.
We need to create channels in the skin so that this PRP serum can infuse into the layers well, which requires small needles that pierce the skin to cause microdamage. These needles go only as deep as we set them depending on the damage and condition of the skin. We can target discoloration, acne scarring, rough texture and large pores with this method as well as skin laxity and wrinkles we’ve acquired. The treatment is comfortable and minimally invasive without any worry for side effects since we use your own fluids to treat the skin and call on natural healing processes. Microdamage is the best way to begin healing and rejuvenation since around the damage new cells will move into the space and smooth over the skin concerns you have.
