WHAT IS microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that is safe for all skin types and colors. The SkinPen device we use is the first and only FDA approved microneedling tool. The SkinPen’s fine needles create controlled micro-injuries to the skin that trigger the body to create new collagen and elastin. This softens signs of aging (such as fine lines), fades acne scars, minimizes pores, and generally improves skin texture for a more youthful and refreshed appearance. The micro-injuries also allow for medical grade skin care product absorption, which is applied during and immediately post procedure for quicker healing and smoother, firmer, and more even looking skin.
Microneedling treatment results include the improvement of:
Fine lines and deeper wrinkles
Hyperpigmentation and sun spots
Microneedling with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is a substance found naturally in your blood that promotes healing. PRP creates, stimulates, and accelerates the body’s natural healing process. Since PRP is derived from your own blood, the side effects are virtually eliminated. At the beginning of the procedure, a small blood sample is taken from your body into a sterile tube and placed in a centrifuge which separates your PRP from other components in the blood. The PRP is then topically applied to the skin during and immediately after the micro-needling procedure. The micro-channels created by microneedling provide direct pathways to the deeper layers of skin for optimal wound healing and overall rejuvenation of the skin.
