Looking for a way to treat wrinkles, age spots, hyperpigmentation, or scarring? Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that safely and effectively addresses a multitude of skin concerns. This popular cosmetic procedure helps reduce signs of aging and heal scars by stimulating extra collagen production.
Traditional microneedling uses a device that creates microscopic punctures on the outer layer of your skin, stimulating the skin’s natural healing process. These micro-injuries result in the production of elastin and collagen, which work to thicken your skin and reduce the appearance of:
- Acne scarring
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Irregular skin texture and tone
Innovative treatments combine microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy and/or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to dramatically enhance the benefits of traditional microneedling.
The procedure for PRP microneedling is similar to a traditional microneedling treatment with the enhancement of adding platelet rich plasma. While you are getting the microneedling, we also apply PRP to the skin. Platelets are one of the components of blood, located in the plasma and are vital for healing injuries. PRP microneedling is most commonly used for facial rejuvenation, but can also be used on the neck, chest, or hands.
Pros of PRP Microneedling
- Boosts the effects of traditional microneedling
- Allows deeper penetration of nutrients
- Minimizes duration of post-treatment redness and swelling
RF & PRP Microneedling Consultations Available
Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling further stimulates the creation of growth factors by delivering RF energy through the small, specialized needles (used in traditional microneedling) as they create micro-punctures along the skin.
