Microneedling. One of the Hottest Skincare Trends!

Did you know that Microneedling is one of the Hottest Skincare Trends?

Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, this treatment which provides phenomenal results with little to no downtime, is virtually painless. Using fine needles to create thousands of micro injuries in the skin, it stimulates the skin’s natural wound healing process. This results in increased cell turnover, as well as collagen and elastin production, reversing and preventing the signs of aging. It noticeably reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, texture irregularities, crepey skin, scarring , discoloration and stretch marks, and can be used on most areas of the body.

Add in PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), this liquid gold as we like to call it, is derived from a patient’s own blood and contains powerful growth factors and cytokines. It boosts and amplifies results because of its own collagen stimulating capabilities, tissue repair, and speeds healing time. PRP is also beneficial for those suffering from Rosacea.

Noticeable results occur about 2-4 weeks from the time of treatment, with optimal results up to 6 months with additional follow up treatments. A series of 3-6 treatments is suggested spaced 4- 6 weeks apart. Some conditions, such as deeper wrinkles, stretch marks, and deep acne scarring could take 6-8 treatments for best results.
