Microneedling: The Natural Stimulation of Skin Repair and Youth

Microneedling: The Natural Stimulation of Skin Repair and Youth

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for treating the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as acne scars. It also addresses skin texture, pigment, stretch marks, under eye dark circles, pore size, thinning hair and overall anti-aging concerns.

An FDA approved medical grade device is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to naturally produce collagen and elastin. The procedure also creates superficial micro-channels which can be used with topical gels and serums.

PRP or "Collagen Induction Facial"

If combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), obtained by drawing your blood and extracting the nutrient rich platelets, the effects of rejuvenation are enhanced exponentially. The microneedling treatment with PRP causes a release of at least 8 essential natural growth factors from your own body. This causes a natural and healthy production of new collagen and elastin which is what creates that youthful appearance. PRP has been used for years to heal wounds and for other purposes. Today, PRP therapies are also available for facial rejuvenation and other areas of aesthetic medicine.

Is it Safe?

Microneedling is safe and rarely contraindicated. There is no down time, minimal to no discomfort and treatments are highly effective. Whether you have tried it all or are new to esthetic treatments, Microneedling has a place in everyone's quest for a more youthful appearance. Unlike many laser treatments, it is safe to do during the summer. Book your appointment today!

Microneedling Treatment for Stretch Marks

Stretch marks appear in any part of the body where the skin has been unable to respond to the rate of growth in the given area. This can occur with weight gain, selective fat deposits, increase of muscle mass or post pregnancy.

Microneedling is one of the most effective procedures for treating stretch marks. This treatment uses the body's own natural healing response to the stimulation caused by the medical microneedling device in combination with a product that assists with creating new collagen. By microneedling the treated area, we create tiny micro-channels that allow for the product used with the treatment to penetrate deeper, thus stimulating collagen synthesis (creation of new collagen) and healing the skin more effectively. We offer 3 types of products that can be used in conjunction with microneedling:

  • Hyaluronic acid:

    Hyaluronic acid is a lubricating, clear substance that's produced by the body naturally and helps to hydrate and plump up skin. For the treatment, we use a hyaluronic acid product to improve skin's tone and texture.

  • Growth Factors:

    Growth factors are products containing biologically active ingredients that have many positive effects on your skin. Microneedling treatment with growth factors will stimulate new collagen, leave skin more taught and diminish scarring.

  • PRP or "Collagen Induction Facial"

    PRP is the most powerful stimulator of collagen synthesis. The microneedling treatment with PRP (platelet rich plasma) uses the concentration of at least 8 essential natural growth factors from your own body. The treatment starts with a quick blood draw (similar to that of any blood test or blood donation) which is spun in a special centrifuge to separate out the PRP. The PRP is then applied in conjunction with microneedling so that the nutrient-rich plasma gets deep into the skin via the newly created micro-channels. This causes a natural and healthy production of new collagen and elastin which is what heals the treated area and reduces the appearance of stretch marks on the skin.

A series of treatments is recommended for the thorough treatment of stretch marks. The quantity of treatments depends on each individual's specific case and healing response. We welcome you to come in for a complimentary consultation to find out if microneedling is a good option for you.
