PRF Microneedling Facials and Cosmetic Injections in Kennewick, WA
It may seem odd to call a dentist’s office to make an appointment to improve your skin, but many dentists have the necessary skills to improve how your skin looks. They are experts in facial anatomy and can use their skills to reduce fine lines and wrinkles or improve skin tone and texture with services like PRF microneedling facials and cosmetic injections.
What is PRF Microneedling?
Microneedling involves using tiny needles to penetrate the skin to introduce collagen back into it. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, which is why skin starts to sag because it has less elasticity. Collagen is a protein in the body, and it is normally found in the connective tissues to make up the body’s structure.
It’s what provides the skin with its ability to bounce back into shape when it’s stretched. It is also present in bones, cartilage, blood vessels, our corneas, and the dentin in our teeth. By putting it into your face through microneedling, it improves the tone and texture of your skin because of its structural component.
What is PRF?
PRF stands for Platelet Rich Fibrin, which is an advanced type of PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma. When using PRF, it stimulates the growth of collagen, helps regenerate tissues, and tightens skin. Along with using plasma from your blood, PRF also contains stem cells that can help your skin look younger.
How is Microneedling Done?
After getting a blood sample from you and separating the plasma, one of our dentists at A Family Dental Center in Kennewick, WA, who is skilled in this technique, will take the microneedle and run it over your face after numbing it with a gel. The numbing of the skin takes 40 minutes to an hour, but the microneedling only takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
The PRF is injected into the face in certain areas before our dentist in Kennewick, WA, uses the microneedle on the skin. The microneedling creates tiny punctures, so you will experience light bleeding.
The results will be smoother, tighter skin that makes it look more vibrant and youthful. The treatment usually lasts about six months to one year. If you want to experience improved skin, contact us at A Family Dental Center for more information.
