How PRP treatment can help you look younger.

Are changes to your face making you look and feel older? If so, it’s time to do something about it. It’s time for you to consider a Platelet-healthy femaleRich Plasma Treatment using microneedling. So, what is PRPT treatment? It’s a revolutionary new treatment to help you achieve younger-looking skin. Dr. Barbara Preussner at For a New You Medical Aesthetics & Laser in Holliston, Massachusetts can help you look your best, and it all begins with a younger-looking face.

Platelet-rich plasma is a component taken from your blood. The procedure begins with Dr. Preussner taking a small sample of your blood and placing it in a centrifuge. The plasma is extracted from the sample. Platelet-rich plasma is responsible for healing because it sends platelets and growth factors to an area to help heal tissue. PRP is applied to your skin and followed with microneedling.

Microneedling helps to deliver the benefits of PRP components by creating microdamage to your skin. Microneedling on its own helps produce more collagen to heal the microdamage. The extra collagen helps your skin appear firmer and younger.

When microneedling is applied after the platelet-rich plasma, the treated areas are able to absorb the platelet-rich plasma easily which accelerates the effects of the PRP treatment. With PRP treatment and microneedling, you can count on:

  • Little or no downtime
  • No cutting or surgery
  • Naturally beautiful results

Some of the age-blasting benefits of PRP combined with microneedling include:

  • Smoother, rejuvenated skin
  • Restoration of youthful volume and contours to your face
  • Increased blood flow to your skin, resulting in a better skin tone and color

You can look younger, and platelet rich plasma combined with microneedling can help. To find out more about PRP treatment, microneedling, and other aesthetic and medical skin care, call Dr. Barbara Preussner at For a New You Medical Aesthetics & Laser in Holliston, Massachusetts today at (508) 429-1006.

Laser hair removal is an effective method for permanently reducing unwanted hair. Shaving in the bath or shower daily can be time-laser hair removalconsuming, and unwanted hair often begins growing back within a day. Shaving can also irritate the skin. Waxing is another option, with longer lasting results than shaving, but it can be painful and cause skin irritation, as well. Laser hair removal is a quick and effective method for revealing smoother skin by permanently removing unwanted hair. At For a New You, Dr. Barbara Preussner and her staff provide laser hair removal in Holliston, MA.

Laser Hair Removal

In Holliston, laser hair removal can be used for removing unwanted hair all over the body, including the face, underarms, bikini line, arms, and legs. Laser hair removal is performed using a gentle light beam that is carefully waved across the skin in the desired area. Melanin in the hair follicles of the skin absorbs light energy from the laser. The light energy damages the hair follicle so that it cannot generate new hair growth.

Since hair grows in cycles, several laser hair removal treatments might be necessary to completely remove all unwanted hair in a particular area. Most patients achieve the desired results between three to six treatment sessions. The number of treatment sessions needed often depends on your hair texture, hair color, and skin type. Hair removal is quicker on some hair textures and skin types, and can take longer with others. Laser hair removal works on all skin types and is an effective method for removing unwanted hair safely without damaging the surrounding skin.

Laser hair removal is a safe method for permanently removing unwanted hair and achieving smoother skin. Save time and avoid the hassle and irritation of other hair removal methods, such as shaving and waxing. For laser hair removal in Holliston, MA, schedule an appointment with Dr. Preussner by calling For a New You at (508) 429-1006.

Have you heard of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy in Holliston, MA? If not, you should look into it, as this aesthetic treatment transforms two platelet rich plasma therapybothersome problems from our personal appearance: skin wrinkling and hair loss. If you're approaching 50, or you're already there or beyond, then Dr. Barbara Preussner has an advanced, yet simple solution. Here are the details on Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy and how it could erase years off your face, neck and chest and also restore your hair to youthful fullness.

For your face

We all experience fine facial lines and areas on our necks and upper chest that are bothersome and dull-looking. Age factors into the problem, but frankly, so does sun exposure, and while applying moisturizers and sunscreen is very beneficial, these at-home treatments can't do it all.

So, Dr. Preussner investigated and began offering Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy in Holliston at For a New You Medical Aesthetics & Laser. Offered as a 15 to 30-minute in-office service, PRPT uses the patient's own blood platelets prepared as an injectable serum treatment. These platelets actually re-activate the body's own collagen, the natural substance our bodies produce to keep the skin supple and elastic.

Dr. Preussner uses a fine needle to inject the serum in problem areas of the skin, and patients see a noticeable improvement almost immediately. Typically, the doctor recommends three treatments at three-week intervals, and smoothing results last six months or even longer. Dr. Preussner also uses the treatments for acne scarring and stretch marks from weight loss or childbirth.

For your hair

No man or woman wants to see their hairlines recede or their once full heads of hair thin. However, many people experience this problem, particularly after 50. In fact, the Cleveland Clinic notes that 50 million men and 30 million women have noticeable hair loss.

Fortunately, Dr. Preussner has mastered the art of injectable Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy as it applies to hair loss. PRPT works to stimulate new hair growth in follicles that have gone inactive. This easy, in-office process requires no special preparation, and most people qualify for it. Best of all, with just one treatment, up to 30 percent of hair follicles restart and regrow hair quickly. A word of caution, however--PRPT works best with hair loss of under five years. Longstanding hair loss does not respond well to PRPT.

Look good, and feel amazing

You can when your skin or hair are rejuvenated with Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy from expert medical aesthetic clinician, Dr. Preussner, at For a New You Medical Aesthetics & Laser in Holliston, MA. Call for a consultation at (508) 429-1006 and learn more today!
