What is Microneedling?
Microneedling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy is a minimally invasive skincare treatment that can be combined with biologics such as PRP to help rejuvenate the skin and smooth out wrinkles, address sun damage, reduce the appearance of acne scars, scarring on the body due to injury or surgery such as C Sections, or even stretch marks. This non-invasive treatment is a downtime procedure:
How does Microneedling work?
A specialized device with fine needles is used to create tiny micro-injuries in the skin. This process triggers the production of collagen and elastin which in turn will stimulate firmness, improved skin texture as well as resurface the skin. The increased collagen production is essential to maintain smooth, firm youthful skin.
Potential applications of Microneedling include:
• Fine lines or moderate wrinkles
• Moderate skin laxity
• Diminished texture, tone, color
• Stretch marks
• Traumatic Scars
• Hair Regrowth
• The delivery mechanism for biologics and serums
What Are The Benefits of Microneedling?
• Improve skin tone and pigmentation
• Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
• Studies have shown reduction in acne scarring
• Refine and shrink pore size
• Produce smoother, healthy skin
• Help tighten skin for a more youthful look
• Increase in production of collagen and elastin
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments may vary, typically you will need a package of three to four treatments, six to eight weeks apart to ensure optimal results. A skincare consultation will be conducted to discuss your specific needs and goals for your skin.
How Do I Maintain Microneedling Benefits:
A designated skincare regimen, individualized for your skin’s specific needs as well as other treatments to continue the cell turnover process will help maintain your microneedling benefits.
Below are additional treatments to enhance your results after your microneedling procedure:
In conjunction with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) with Microneedling is a powerful combination for Facial Rejuvenation. This combination helps to further reduce any wrinkling or sagging skin, found in the forehead, eye area, chin, cheek, neck, or chest areas and continue the cell turnover process.
Fillers also help to further replenish lost collagen by stimulating the body to produce collagen naturally. When injected, collagen-promoting fillers can yield long-lasting results.
