I’m here to tell you micro-needling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is AMAZING and you must do it ASAP!
When it comes to my face, I’ve done it all. One of my big new years resolutions for 2018 was to take better care of my skin. Between derma-planes, botox, hydro-dermabrasion facials, religious Obagi use and countless other tricks I’ve heard that work, I was on a serious mission this past year to extend the youth of my skin. I’m staring 35 straight in the face, and I can honestly say, since having Evelyn but especially the past two years, I have really started to see some changes in my skin, and I don’t mean the good kind!
I have heard about micro-needling more and more but was always a bit nervous and unsure if it really had all the benefits it claimed. After one treatment, I am a firm believer that everything they’re saying is true and it is totally worth it!
Because of trademark laws I can’t use the popular name you all know this facial as. It rhymes with schmampire schmacial. It’s the facial Kim Kardashian received on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and screamed the entire way through about it hurting. I am here to tell you, Kim K. must be a sissy because I have zero pain tolerance and micro-needling did not hurt at all. In fact when we started, it was a low setting and I was immediately like, ‘turn it all the way up!’ I am pretty sure she had that Skin Pen pumping and I was still not in any pain. It feels like really aggressive micro-dermabrasion
I still can’t believe the difference in my face since the treatment. Immediately after I received the facial I had to pick Evelyn up from school. Her reaction, “Uhhh Mom… What’s wrong with your face?” Hahaha. I applied the calming cream all night, which really helped any warm sensation I was feeling. I had very mild discomfort around my upper cheekbones, near my under eye. This tends to be a very sensitive area on my skin regularly, so that was not surprising to me. Extra calming cream to the area helped soothe the discomfort. The next morning my face was still red, but not grotesquely and if I put on a hat, I don’t think anyone would have really noticed. I did have quite a bit of peeling on my face especially around my mouth for about 3-4 days, but this could also have been made worse by using Obagi. One week later my skin was glowing, dewey, bright and flawless. No joke it still looks amazing. It helped even out my skin tone, really made a difference on my sun and age spots and helped smooth out any fine wrinkles, you miiiiight see on my face. And that was after just one treatment! It is recommended you receive three treatments to see full results.

How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling causes small, purposeful injuries to the skin, which stimulates the body’s natural healing process causing your body to generate new skin cells and blood vessels.
Benefits of Regenerative Cells
At Infinity, we use three types of regenerative cells to amplify your treatment results. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), Amniotic Regenerative Cells or Umbilical Regenerative Cells (commonly known as “stem cells”) are powerhouse cells naturally produced in the body that can help stimulate rejuvenation of skin cells and tightening of the skin. These cells can seek out damage tissue and help to formulate new tissues including skin cells and blood vessels. We utilize these cells as a topical treatment and also as filler injections for deeper wrinkling/pitting or areas where you desire more plumpness.
Where Do the Regenerative Cells Come From?
PRP (Platelet-Rich-Plasma) Cells come directly from your body. First we draw a small amount of blood, and spin it down so that the powerful plasma cells are on top. Next we extract the cells and utilize them as a topical treatment to amplify your treatment results.
Both umbilical and amniotic regenerative cells are donated from healthy mothers who have given birth to healthy babies. Normally these cells would be discarded if the mother chooses not to bank them or donate them. There is a higher concentration of regenerative cells that come from umbilical and amniotic cells vs PRP, as we tend to quit producing as many regenerative cells the older we get.
Skin Conditions Treated
Hyper-pigmentation, acne, fine lines, laugh lines, crepe skin, dullness and “greyish” skin, scarring/pitting, age spots, stretch marks, hair loss. Results will vary depending on your unique skin type and conditions.
