Micro-needling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. The needles are used to penetrate the skin in order to create a controlled skin injury. Each small puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds with collagen and elastin. This results in tighter and more youthful glowing facial skin. Microneedling is also used to treat acne scarring , making it is less visible. 3-6 treatment sessions are required to benefit the most from this skin therapy.
ADDITION OF PRP* (Vampire Lift)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), also know as the “Vampire Lift”, is dervived from your own blood and contains billions of growth factors . When used with Micro-needling, PRP greatly enhance the results by boosting collagen production and the healing processes of skin cells. This powerful combination improves the skin’s texture and tone to a higher level. A small vile of blood is spun down causing the PRP to surface to the top. This is then applied topically onto the surface of the skin, and penetrates into the tiny perforations from the Micro-needling treatment. The PRP then penetrate into the deeper skin layers to stimulate collagen production, and healing of damaged skin cells, resulting in smoother, tighter skin over time.
The results of this procedure are a remarkable, rapid, improvement of skin texture and firmness. A reduction in pore size occurs, and the appearance of scars and stertchmarks is diminished. Results vary by the depth of the penetration to the skin, and whether Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is introduced in the procedure.
