Microneedling Therapy is a simple and fast alternative to laser treatments and deep peels for treating wrinkles, acne or post traumatic scars, and stretch marks. Microneedling is highly customizable with minimal downtime, and is easily performed with topical numbing for comfort. The microneedling pen is a cordless device with a high speed motor for rapid penetration of the fine needles. When more pre-existing skin damage requires more aggressive treatments, microneedling is easily personalized. 4-6 week intervals are generally required between sessions; 3-4 treatments are generally recommended for mild to moderate acne scarring, while 5-6 treatments may be required for deeper scars and stretch marks. When utilized for generalized skin resurfacing and rejuvenation, topically applied products containing growth factors (such as TNS by Skin Medica) and anti-aging serums are better absorbed as an adjunct to treatment.
As discussed above, topical PRP containing your own growth factors provides the most natural and concentrated ingredients, while eliminating the risk of allergic reactions. Microneedling is also performed to introduce synthetic growth factors, serums, hyaluronic acid into the skin to enhance your appearance. Microneedling with PRP is a highly effective treatment for skin rejuvenation without any artificial or synthetic products. It can be easily combined with no down-time laser or energy treatments to optimize the desired effects of treatments.
