Using the finest needles, microneedling causes the release of your body’s own growth factors which are transported to the skin’s surface. As a result, the skin is naturally stimulated to:
- Regenerate and produce new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid
- Improve overall skin firmness
- Help tighten pores
- Reduce the appearance of wrinkles and age spots
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling – also known as Percutaneous Collagen Induction (PCI)is a non-surgical treatment that uses hair thin needles to cause tiny punctures in your skin, prompting a healing process that improves skin quality. It’s safe, minimally invasive and is considered an effective aesthetic treatment for several different dermatologic conditions, including age-related skin conditions, including age-related skin conditions, acne and other scars, stretch marks, dyspigmentation, and alopecia.
Microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. In this way, PRP injections use each individual patient’s own healing system to improve musculoskeletal problems.
PRP injections are prepared by taking anywhere from one to a few tubes of your own blood and running it through a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. These activated platelets are then injected directly into your injured or diseased body tissue. This releases growth factors that stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells your body produces
