Read on to learn everything you need to know about this highly beneficial technology and what it can do for you.What is Micro-Needling?
The micro-pen uses a sterile needle tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin. This initiates the skin’s repair process to naturally produce collagen and elastin. It is ideal for smoothing fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks. Micro-channels created by the treatment allow for optimal absorption of topical products and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), enhancing their effects in the deeper layers of skin.What does it feel like?
Micro-needling feels similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin. Topical numbing may be applied prior to your procedure, but no anesthesia or medications are necessary.What can I expect after a Micro-Needling procedure?
The skin will be red and flushed, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn, for 12 hours to three days. You may also experience mild swelling, tightness and/or mild peeling. Side effects are temporary and typically resolve within three days. Total healing time depends on the depth of the treatment, skin type and skin condition. Some patients may heal completely in 24 hours.When will I see the results?
Patients typically notice an immediate glow, but visible improvement will take about two to four weeks and can continue for up to six months.How many treatments will I need?
A series of three to six treatments spaced four to six weeks apart is ideal for optimal results. Some conditions such as deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks and acne scars may need six to eight treatments.What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy?
Platelet Rich Plasma is a concentration of platelets in the blood that are crucial to wound healing. When used for skin rejuvenation, PRP releases growth factors into the skin to expedite the body’s repair process and stimulate new collagen and elastin.What does the procedure entail?
A small blood sample is taken from your body and the PRP is separated from the other components. The PRP is then topically applied to the skin immediately following a micro-needling procedure. The micro-channels created by micro-needling provide direct pathways to the deeper layers of skin for optimal wound healing. Micro-needling with PRP application is an ideal treatment for smoothing fine lines, wrinkles and scars — or even increasing plumpness and overall rejuvenation of the skin.
