Microneedling and PRP Treatment

Microneedling is one of the most popular clinical skin treatments on the market today. After topically numbing the skin, your aesthetician or RN will use our Dermapen, a micro needling device, to create micro-injuries to the skin. This induces the body’s healing response, triggering the formation of new fibroblasts and collagen. It will also create hundreds of micro channels that we can use to deliver skin care products deeply into the skin. We recommend this treatment for fine lines, large pores, skin laxity as well as improving acne scarring and other scars.

We also offer a combination microneedling/platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment. In a PRP treatment, your own blood is withdrawn and processed to concentrate the growth factors which aid your body in healing. The PRP is applied directly to the skin after microneedling, accelerating the healing process and aiding in new collagen formation.

A series of 3-6 treatments is recommended 4 to 6 weeks apart for best results, but some patients see visibly improved skin after just one to two treatments.
