Microneedling is an aesthetic treatment that encourages your skin to revitalize and renew itself naturally. The microneedling device slides along the skin, penetrating the upper layers of the skin to a specified depth to create numerous tiny needle wounds. The procedure prompts the body to respond through the creation of new collagen and elastin fibers. In response to the stimulus, the skin plumps and thickens, reducing the appearance of scars, stretch marks and fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling is a gentler anti-aging therapy than other forms of skin resurfacing, encouraging collagen production while at the same time helping to reduce the appearance of sun spots and other signs of aging. A long-lasting solution that works in conjunction with your body’s natural rejuvenation process, microneedling stimulates your skin’s ability to actually repair itself. Microneedling produces microscopic channels in the dermis to help stimulate the body’s natural defenses and produce a thickening of the skin by up to 80 percent. Scars, stretch marks and wrinkles can be visibly reduced with no injections, incisions or downtime required.
Microneedling and PRP
Micro-needling with DrPRP, commonly known as the “Vampire Facial”, is often performed with DrPRP on the skin in order to trigger a healing response. A pen-like device is used for micro-needling that contains many tiny needles that create hundreds of tiny channels in the skin. The micro-channels created by the micro-needling pen provide a direct pathway to the deeper layers of the skin. The DrRP is then topically applied to the skin immediately following the micro-needling procedure. This is the first step in order to provoke healing and to help speed and intensify the repair and rejuvenation of your skin. We then apply your own processed serum, or DrPRP to the skin. DrPRP is used for facial rejuvenation that works by targeting the collagen within the dermis of your skin by using your own body’s growth factors. This helps to create new collagen as well as revive the existing collagen.
