Microneedling is an effective treatment to naturally restore younger skin, dramatically improve unsightly scars and get rid of fine lines and wrinkles. A specialized device is applied to the skin, creating thousands of micro-channels or holes that stimulate collagen production. This natural healing process begins instantly, resulting in new collage and elastin.
This specialized device utilizes tiny needles that poke through the epidermis and dermis in a controlled and precise strategy. These micro-injuries then stimulate the body to increase collagen production and elastin that produces healthier skin. As the skin continues to heal, the results will continue to improve.
PRP, or platelet rich plasma therapy, involves drawing a small amount of the patient’s own blood and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the rest of the blood. The plasma contains growth factors that help to promote new cell growth within the skin. Microneedling with PRP combines microneedling with PRP therapy, applying your PRP to your face before performing microneedling. This combination of treatments promotes healthier, younger-looking skin.
This simple procedure can treat a variety of skin conditions including: moderate wrinkles, fine lines, scars, stretch marks, skin laxity, uneven tone or texture, and premature aging from excess sun exposure. Microneedling does not require any downtime for recovery, but the treatment will cause some redness that will fade within 24 hours to 4 days.
These benefits will begin to be visible over 1 to 3 weeks, since time is necessary for the skin to rejuvenate itself. Improvements can even continue for up to 6 months post-treatment.
