One of the latest innovations in aesthetic medicine is collagen induction therapy. Micro-needling is a state of the art treatment which utilizes minute medical grade sterile pins to lightly penetrate the skin in order to create a controlled micro-injury stimulating the self-repair mechanism of the skin. This treatment effectively stimulates collagen and elastin production resulting in smoother, firmer, and more youthful appearing skin.
Micro-needling results can be greatly enhanced with the addition of autologous platelet rich plasma or PRP which is your own personal fountain of youth! Autologous PRP is obtained by drawing a small amount of blood from the patient and it gets concentrated with the use of a centrifuge. This plasma contains a high concentration of growth factors and stem cells which will help with healing and promote cell renewal. PRP can be topically applied or injected directly into the skin for ultimate results.
Micro-needling with or without PRP is used for the reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, melasma, sunspots, stretch marks, skin laxity, hair loss (alopecia), cellulite and allows for the penetration of a variety of topically applied therapeutic and antiaging agents.
