Microneedling is a form of collagen induction therapy which stimulates the skin’s natural healing process and promotes the growth of new cells. This procedure uses micro needles to gently perforate the skin and stimulate the skin’s natural repair. Microneedling combined with platelet rich plasma (PRP) can improve the appearance of minor skin imperfections such as fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, and uneven skin tone and texture. Additionally, PRP can assist in minimizing the appearance of acne scars, and stretch marks or skin irregularities.
Microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) stimulates fibroblast production of collagen and elastin, improving the overall condition of your skin from inside out.
This safe and effective procedure can treat and improve the following problems:
- Acne, burn, and surgical scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles such as “crows feet” or “smoker lines”
- Loose, lax skin
- Stretch marks
- Hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation
- Hair regeneration
When will I see results? Results may be noticeable as soon as you heal from the treatment, as the redness subsides and fine sloughing of the skin resolves. Scientific data suggests that results become better over a six month period. During this time your body is producing new collagen. Within 1-3 months, you should notice more buoyancy, resilience, and evenness to your skin.
How many treatments are required? For optimal results, it is recommended a series of 3-4 treatments with 4-6 weeks between each. A maintenance program of 2 treatments per year is recommended to maintain the results you are pursuing.
