MICRONEEDLING AT SOURCE OF HEALTH

Microneedling is a dermatological technique that is commonly used to address certain skin concerns. It can be used to manage wrinkles, stretch marks, scars, skin pigmentation, alopecia and even loose skin. When used with PRP, it enhances the benefits of both therapies. Micro-needling with PRP into the skin produces more collagen than with micro needling alone. It can also expedite the healing process.

MICRONEEDLING PROCESS

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.

MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT

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 EFFECTS

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.

COMMON QUESTIONS

  1. Does the PRP procedure hurt?
    A numbing cream is applied to the skin making the procedure virtually painless. Afterward, the skin will be red like a sunburn for about a day or so followed by a light peeling. Staying out of the sun and using moisturizer is recommended.
  2. How is PRP used in combination with other aesthetic procedures?
    Most aesthetic procedures work by creating small injuries to the skin either thermal, chemical, or mechanical. Since PRP speeds up and enhances healing, it makes perfect sense to add to other therapies such as our non-ablative fractional laser, IPL photofacial, chemical peel, and Exilis Ultra skin tightening. This creates a synergistic effect, giving you beautiful results.
  3. How does diet, exercise, and hormones affect the outcome?
