Micro needling can be used to improve the firmness of their skin, as well as the texture and overall appearance of large pores. As we get older, our collagen and elastin production starts to slow down and fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin start to appear.
Micro needling can also be paired with PRF & is a great choice for improving skin tone and texture, fine lines and wrinkles, brown spots, acne scars, under eye bags, and dull, tired looking skin. Micro needling with PRF is FDA cleared and scientifically proven to rejuvenate the skin on several levels by stimulating cell renewal and the triggering the production of collagen and elastin. Treatments are non-invasive, quick, comfortable, and require little recovery time.
Collagen and elastin are two proteins that act as the building blocks for the skin’s overall structure.
This procedure is versitile and can be used in a number of locations:
It is an acupuncture-like treatment, this is where this modality has coined the name collagen injection therapy. It involves the use of very fine needles that create tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin. This causes the body to begin stimulating new collagen and elastin which helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Micro needling requires very minimal downtime. Downtime varies from person to person, but generally, you may experience mild redness and mild swelling for about 24 hours after your microneedling treatment.
-Wash your face throughly a few afters after the treatment. Gently massage your face with tepid water so as to remove all serum and other debris, such as dried blood. Do not use a chemical sunscreen on the same day as your treatment.
