Micro-needling treatment allows for controlled induction of the skin's self-repair mechanism by creating micro-"injuries" in the skin, which triggers new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer and younger-looking skin.
Micro-needling procedures are performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of the sterile needle head. The procedure is normally completed within 30 - 60 minutes, depending on the require treatment and anatomical site.
Micro-needling with PRP- Platelet Rich Plasma, also known as "PRP" is an injection process whereby a person's own blood is used during the treatment.
A fraction of blood is drawn up from the individual patient into a syringe. The blood is spun in a special centrifuge to separate its components (Red Blood Cells, Platelet Rich Plasma, Platelet Poor Plasma and Buffy Coat). Platelets are very small cells in your blood that are involved in the
clotting and healing process.
When PRP is injected into the damaged area it causes a mild inflammation that triggers the healing cascade. As the platelets organize in the treatment area, they release a number of enzymes to promote healing and tissue responses including attracting stem cells and growth factors to repair the damaged area.
As a result, new collagen begins to develop. As the collagen matures it begins to shrink causing the tightening and strengthening of the damaged area. When treating injured or sun and time damaged tissue, they can induce a remodeling of the tissue to a healthier and younger state.
