Skin Quality Is Vital For A Youthful Look

Good skin quality is an essential component of looking young and healthy. As we age, our skin undergoes numerous changes, including a decrease in collagen and elastin production. This decrease, in addition to gravity and other factors like diet, smoking, sun exposure, and pollution, can lead to wrinkles, sagging, and a loss of firmness. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and a good skincare routine is the best defense against aging, but they can’t prevent the inevitable. Microneedling, PRP Therapy, medical-grade skin care products, and chemical peels can improve skin quality and tone.

Microneedling: A Natural Way To Revitalize Skin

FDA-approved microneedling is a long-time favorite skin rejuvenation treatment favored by plastic surgeons and aestheticians for years. Through tiny micro-injuries created by very thin needles, microneedling spurs the body into beginning its own healing process. New collagen, elastin, and skin tissue are generated, which then diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, acne scars, age spots, and other blemishes.  The end result is improved skin texture and tone.

Benefits Of Microneedling

Microneedling stimulates the body to produce more collagen, which is an essential protein needed for the skin to look hydrated, supple, and youthful. As we age, the body produces less and less collagen, which is a leading contributor to looking old. Microneedling also makes it easier for the skin to absorb topical serums that will further repair damaged skin cells.

Microneedling has comparable results to chemical peels and laser treatments but does not require the same amount of downtime, nor does it come with as many side effects. Patients receive smooth, firm, and clearer skin that makes them look years younger.

PRP Therapy: Your Own Blood Heals The Skin

Platelet-rich plasma therapy, or PRP therapy, relies on the power of plasma to heal and improve damaged areas of the skin. In PRP therapy, a small amount of blood is withdrawn from the patient, and plasma is extracted and purified before being re-introduced into the skin.  PRP therapy is not painful and does not require a lengthy recovery. With PRP therapy, patients can improve skin texture and tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, minimize stretch marks and scars, and correct irregular pigmentation. In some instances, PRP therapy can also add volume to the face.

Medical-Grade Skin Care Is Essential

Taking good care of your skin at home can be compared to brushing and flossing your teeth - it is something that everyone should do daily to maintain optimal health and aesthetics. Skincare is a confusing terrain to navigate, as there are innumerable options and an endless stream of marketing that targets consumers.

Medical-grade skincare, though a bit pricier than drug store options, is the best option to use to ensure the long-term health and beauty of your skin. Medical-grade skincare is clinically tested and proven to be effective and is only available from a doctor. At Zenn Plastic Surgery, we offer popular lines such as SkinMedica and ZO Health among others that can keep you looking refreshed and revitalized.
