If your ready to take your skin to the next level this innovative procedure in skin rejuvenation might be the right treatment option for you.

What is Microneedling?

 

Microneedling also known as collagen induction therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that uses tiny needles to produce micro injuries to the skin.  These micro injuries stimulate new collagen and elastin production.  These essential proteins strengthen the structure of your skin from the inside out.

What is PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)?

 

PRP is a natural substance derived from your own blood cells.  PRP contains growth factors that are essential for stem cell migration and ultimately activates and regenerates new cells throughout the body. 

 

Benefits of Microneedling with PRP

  • Reduces the appearance of large pores

  • Evens skin tone

  • Skin tightening

  • Reduces fine lines

  • Collagen stimulation

  • Helps lighten sun spots

  • Reduces capillaries

  • Reduces acne scars

Process and Recovery 

  1. A small amount of blood is collected

  2. The blood is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the different components

  3. Once the blood is separated the plasma (PRP) is extracted from the tube

  4. PRP is then injected into areas of thinning hair throughout your scalp. 

 

You can expect to experience some redness, tenderness and tightness to the treatment area that is similar to a sunburn. Rarely mild bruising may occur. The redness is usually reduced by the second day but for sensitive skin types can last 3-5 days.
