We use the only double FDA cleared microneedling device, Exceed Microneedling. It is used as a minimally invasive procedure that causes micro-channels in your skin, prompting a collagen-stimulating healing process. In short, paired with PRP injection for facial rejuvenation, there is improvement expected in the overall appearance of the skin and gives back a youthful glow.
Over 4-6 weeks, this treatment decreases fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks. There is no significant downtime after treatment. You may need to follow through on an aftercare regime to avoid post-procedure complication. But there’s no need to allot several days or even weeks to recover, unlike surgery.
Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy. The effects of micro-needling are both short and long-term. Creating a micro injury to the skin, it produces a "glow" after treatments that gives a hint to how the treatment area will look after a few sessions. Microneedling is a mechanical tool that encourages collagen production in the dermis and hypodermis. Microneedling is often combined with stem cell growth factors or PRP (platelet rich plasma) to enhance results; and can be stacked with laser treatments at the same visit. Clients can see an improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and acne scars on the face and body. It is a very versatile treatment that delivers consistent results where topical agents alone are less effective.
Generally, you will need about 5-6 treatments a month 4-6 weeks apart.
Microneedling can be done every 4-6 weeks.
Microneedling is always done in package or 3 or 6, depending on the concerns the person has. It is also a great maintenance treatment to do every 3 months to keep collagen production forming.
