Microneedling (SkinPen)


Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a cosmetic procedure that involves the use of a device equipped with fine needles to create tiny, controlled injuries in the skin's surface. Microneedling stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential proteins for maintaining the skin's structure and elasticity.

Some of the common benefits for Microneedling, include:

  • Reduced Wrinkles and Fine Lines
    The increase in collagen production can help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, promoting a smoother and more youthful-looking skin.
  • Scar Reduction
    Microneedling is often used to improve the appearance of scars, including acne scars and scars from injuries or surgeries. The micro-injuries created during the procedure stimulate the healing process, leading to the formation of new, healthier skin tissue.
  • Improved Skin Texture and Tone
    Microneedling can contribute to a more even skin tone by addressing issues such as hyperpigmentation and sun damage. It can also help with rough skin texture and large pores.
  • Enhanced Product Absorption
    The microchannels created by the needles during microneedling allow for better absorption of topical skincare products. This means that products applied after the procedure, such as serums or growth factors, can penetrate more effectively into the skin.
  • Minimized Stretch Marks
    Microneedling may help reduce the appearance of stretch marks by promoting collagen production and improving the overall texture of the skin in the affected areas.

Unlock the Power of PRP with Microneedling

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, when combined with microneedling, is often referred to as "vampire facial" or "PRP microneedling." This combination creates synergistic benefits. Some of the advantages of adding PRP to microneedling treatments:

  • Enhanced Collagen Production
    Microneedling creates micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating the body's natural healing response and triggering collagen production. PRP, which is derived from the patient's own blood, contains growth factors that further enhance collagen synthesis. The combination of microneedling and PRP can result in increased collagen formation, promoting skin firmness and elasticity.
  • Improved Healing and Recovery
    PRP is rich in platelets, which play a crucial role in the clotting and healing process. When applied during or after microneedling, PRP can expedite the healing of micro-injuries, potentially reducing downtime and discomfort associated with the procedure.
  • Reduced Inflammation and Redness
    The anti-inflammatory properties of PRP may help minimize post-microneedling redness and inflammation. This can lead to a quicker recovery and a more comfortable post-treatment experience.
  • Enhanced Skin Radiance:
    The combination of microneedling and PRP is believed to improve overall skin texture, tone, and radiance. Patients often report a healthy glow and improved skin quality after undergoing these combined treatments.
