When we’re young, our skin is active and in a state of new tissue growth. It is firm, smooth, and has volume extending away from our facial bones. As skin cells and tissue become damaged, our body responds and rapidly replaces it with fresh new tissue. As we age, the ability of our skin to regenerate and repair slows and damage to skin accumulates. The sources of damage are varied and include the sun, environmental toxins, and poor nutrition. Skin loses the collagen that keeps it firm, elastin that keeps it supple, and blood vessels that keep a uniform, vibrant color. Skin develops wrinkles, collapses, and droops.
The technique of Micro-Needling activates the skin’s power to rejuvenate itself, revitalizing aging skin. Utilizing very fine, surgical needles, Micro-Needling stimulates cellular activity to harness skins natural ability to produce new tissue. The micro-needling procedure rejuvenates the more superficial layers of skin helping to restore a youthful glow. It will help reduce wrinkles, improve resiliency, and treat other forms of skin damage, such as sun damage or rosacea. Collagen and elastin are produced to help repair damage and restore skin structure. We use Micro-Needling primarily for facial skin treatments, but it can also be used on the neck, upper chest, and other areas of concern.
For this procedure, after using an anesthetic cream to numb the skin, a tiny electric micro-needle, containing approximately 10 to 12 pins is moved over the entire face, pulsing at a rapid rate and creating tiny dermal wounds, making it possible to enhance nutrient delivery into the skin. Micro-Needling is a treatment by itself but can be enhanced by adding PRP application to the end of the procedure. The PRP Facial combines the extraordinary technology of Micro-Needling with the science of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to enhance the overall effect of Micro-Needling.
The PRP facial uses platelet-rich plasma sourced from your own blood to enhance the youthful glow of the skin and rejuvenates tired, worn tissues of the face and neck. We utilize PRP therapy, platelet-rich plasma, described on the PRP page of this site.
For this procedure, after using an anesthetic cream to numb the skin, a micro-needling procedure is performed creating tiny dermal wounds. Extracted platelet-rich plasma is then smoothed over the patient’s entire face and neck and left to seep into the skin through the tiny “wounds.” Once applied, PRP activates stem cells within your facial skin. The stem cells produce new tissue, such as collagen, elastin, and blood vessels. The result is skin that becomes smoother, firmer, and vibrant, like it used to be when you were younger.
What’s really wonderful about PRP Facials is that the benefits are noticeable within a few days, and they typically continue to improve over the coming weeks. The plasma continues to work. PRP therapy in conjunction with Micro-Needling has been used successfully for all sorts of facial problems such as poor complexion, acne scars, discoloration and brown spots, sun damage and lines.
Your skin may appear to be lightly pink for a day or two. But you can wear makeup 24 hours after the treatment. Makeup and other skin products you use should be high quality and have minimal amounts of fillers and chemicals. Because your skin absorbs chemicals, you want to identify more natural-based products. PRP Facials are healthier than injecting chemicals and man-made ingredients into the skin. We will help you choose good clean products for your skin and avoid toxins, helping your new look last longer!
