Microneedling is a collagen induction therapy that is minimally invasive and designed to stimulate collagen production.
WHAT TO EXPECT
A small device that contains micro-needles is passed over the skin, creating tiny micro-wounds. During the body’s natural wound-healing process of these channels, collagen and elastin are automatically produced. Results are seen immediately, with noticeable lifting and toning taking place over a period of 2-3 months.
MICRONEEDLING WITH PRP:
Microneedling with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) uses the power of your blood’s platelets and growth factors to rejuvenate the skin with a unique ability to rev up collagen and elastin production. By combining PRP therapy with microneedling, you’ll enjoy more visible results in less time!
MICRONEEDLING WITH PRF:
PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) is a growth factor rich substance, derived from your own blood to promote skin rejuvenation and faster healing. In comparison to PRP, with PRF you retain the majority of your growth factors, giving you better and longer lasting results. PRF can be used as a masque after microneedling or can be injected directly into the skin for enhanced anti-aging results.
AREAS THAT WE TREAT:
Microneedling treatment can be performed on the face, chin, neck, chest and certain areas of the body to help reverse the signs of sun damage and improve the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, and hyper-pigmentation.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
- Microneedling session – 30 to 45 minutes.
- Microneedling with PRP session – 60 minutes
- Microneedling with PRF session – 60 minutes
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT?
- Avoid sun exposure and sunless tanning for 48 hours before your appointment.
- Come makeup-free to your appointment.
- If you are currently using any retinol ointments stop use at least 14 days prior to your treatment.
WILL I EXPERIENCE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Immediately following the treatment you may experience some slight skin sensitivity and notice that the skin feels very tight. This is very normal and should subside in a few hours. The skin may also appear red and look irritated but do not apply any lotions or make up. The skin may appear red for 24-48 hours.
