Microneedling is a treatment that uses tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate collagen and elastin production. Microneedling lifts and tightens the skin while providing texture improvement and scar treatment for all ages and skin types.
Microneedling with PRP
We obtain Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP, by drawing a small amount of blood from your arm into a sterile tube. This sample is centrifuged to separate your plasma, which we use for the treatment, from your red and white blood cells. Plasma contains high concentration of platelets, stem cells and growth factors. Platelets help your tissue heal and grow new cells.
When PRP is used with microneedling, it penetrates your skin through the tiny channels the microneedles create. The PRP supercharges the microneedling benefits. PRP also addresses under-eye puffiness and dark circles to give you a more youthful, well-rested appearance. Since PRP is derived from your own blood, the side effects are virtually eliminated.
Radio Frequency microneedling, also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy, Morpheus8 and Pelleve, uses a fine needle to create microwounds, or channels, in the skin. This triggers the production of capillaries, elastin, and collagen.
If the procedure also uses radiofrequency waves, it’s called radiofrequency microneedling. The needle releases radiofrequency into the channels, causing additional damage. This enhances the effects of standard microneedling.
