Microneedling with a SkinPen (also known as collagen induction therapy) involves using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin. Sound appealing? Not so much. But this minimally invasive treatment done in-office by a glows trained aesthetician is virtually painless and incredibly effective. “The micro-injuries you create stimulates the body’s natural wound healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production, therefore reversing as well as preventing signs of aging.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
What is Platelet Rich Plasma?
Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP, is obtained 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 a high concentration of platelets, stem cells and growth factors which help your tissue heal and grow new cells.
What are the benefits of micro-needling Platelet Rich Plasma?
When PRP is used with micro-needling, it penetrates your skin through the tiny channels the micro-needles create. The PRP supercharges the micro-needling benefits. PRP also addresses under-eye puffiness and dark circles to give you a more youthful, well-rested appearance.
We recommend a series of at least three treatments about four to six weeks apart to see the best results. You can then do the treatment about once a year to maintain.
