Microneedling: The Natural Stimulation of Skin Repair and Youth
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for treating the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as acne scars. It also addresses skin texture, pigment, stretch marks, under eye dark circles, pore size, thinning hair and overall anti-aging concerns.
An FDA approved medical grade device is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to naturally produce collagen and elastin. The procedure also creates superficial micro-channels which can be used with topical gels and serums.
PRP or "The Vampire Facial"
If combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), obtained by drawing your blood and extracting the nutrient rich platelets, the effects of rejuvenation are enhanced exponentially. The microneedling treatment with PRP causes a release of at least 8 essential natural growth factors from your own body. This causes a natural and healthy production of new collagen and elastin which is what creates that youthful appearance. This is also known as a Liquid Facelift or The Vampire Facial. PRP has been used for years to heal wounds and for other purposes. Today, PRP therapies are also available for facial rejuvenation and other areas of aesthetic medicine.
Is it Safe?
Microneedling is safe and rarely contraindicated. There is no down time, minimal to no discomfort and treatments are highly effective. Whether you have tried it all or are new to esthetic treatments, Microneedling has a place in everyone's quest for a more youthful appearance. Unlike many laser treatments, it is safe to do during the summer. Book you appointment today!
