What is Micro-Needling?
Microneedling, sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally-invasive facial procedure that rejuvenates the skin. Using a pen-like, device, fine needles create tiny holes in the surface of the skin. These tiny puncture sites trigger the body to heal and repair itself, in turn causing the production of collagen and elastin.
Microneedling is known to improve:
- Pore size
- Skin texture and firmness
- Scars and scar tissue
- Stretch marks
- Fine lines and wrinkles
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, as it is known, is a process that helps smooth out fine lines and wrinkles in skin tissue, using your body’s own regenerative process! Plasma is extracted from an individual’s own blood. Platelets are separated out and injected back into the skin tissue. The PRP process is also done by spreading the plasma over an individual’s skin topically.
During the Micro-Needling process, a Dermapen is run over the patient’s facial tissue creating thousands of microscopic channels through the skin. The body quickly rushes to repair these channels by increasing blood flow, and depositing of both collagen and elastin. Restoring skin to its youthful appearance.
When combined these treatments give patients the youthful look they are trying to achieve. The PRP being applied prior to the Micro-Needling process allows for maximum penetration of the PRP, insuring the skin will heal exponentially faster, improving both texture and color. With no trace of scarring or bruising as with more invasive procedures. Leaving you with fresher, younger, glowing skin; All using your body’s own natural regenerative processes!
