Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure used by dermatologists and doctors to induce collagen production in the skin, primarily on the face. Using tiny needles, the dermatologist will rejuvenate the skin by creating wounds in the skin to initiate the body's automatic healing response. With increased blood flow to the area, the results provide short and long term benefits. Microneedling can be used to treat problematic skin concerns like acne scars, stretch marks, unwanted lines, age spots, dark pigmentation and other skin imperfections.
Benefits of Microneedling for Your Skin
This cosmetic procedure enhances your skin's texture and appearance after a few brief treatments. Each treatment can generally last 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area. For youthful rejuvenated skin, consider this popular skin care procedure to enhance your skin care regimen.
Some side effects include redness, dryness and mild bruising. While bruising may occur, the skin will naturally heal on its own, for a more refreshed and rejuvenated complexion.
Microneedling with PRP (Platelet-Rich-Plasma)
We also offer microneedling with platelet rich plasma to enhance your skin's healing process. When done with PRP, microneedling procedure consists of blood collection. The blood is drawn from your vein and then placed in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets, creating the plasma. Using the plasma collected and distilled from your own blood triggers growth factors to facilitate and speed up recovery after the microneedling procedure.
