It creates thousands of microchannels that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. This rejuvenates your skin from the inside out. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
There are three phases to the wound-repair process:
Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to cleanse the wound, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
Phase III: Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
This procedure is done with the SkinPen, which is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device on the market and is clinically proven to improve the appearance of wrinkles of the neck and acne scars. In as few as three minimally invasive treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance and step out with confidence.
*We recommend adding on PRP for the additional benefits*
Microneedling with PRP
The point of the PRP (Platelet-Rich-Plasma) part of the treatment is to speed up the natural healing process from the micro-injuries to the face. The overall treatment will take around 30 minutes to complete.
1. First we begin by taking blood from your arm, which we then spin to separate the plasma.
2. We then take the natural chemicals in the platelets and plasma from your own blood to use during the microneedling.
3. During the microneedling, those chemicals are applied onto the face while the tiny needles work their magic, as they inject them further into the skin.
4. Making these tiny injections into the face allows your own blood to coat the skin cells, which then heavily stimulates healing and collagen production.
