How does it work?
Microneedling is usually recommended in the series of 4-6 treatments 4 weeks apart. Depth and number of treatments can be customized to address scar revision, fine lines, deep wrinkles, stretch marks and sun damage. Topical numbing cream is used before the procedure, followed by an automated vertically stamping method using a sterilized , disposable tip.
It improves the skin by causing controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process while minimizing cellular damage. The result is the effective remodelling of scar tissue by increasing the cell turnover, collagen production and skin rejuvenation while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
Microneedling with PRP
Platelet-Rich Plasma skin rejuvenation, or PRP treatment (also known as the "Vampire Facial"), is a skincare solution that works by using your body's natural healing properties to help restore your skin. Originally developed to treat sports-related injuries more quickly, it was soon found to have practical cosmetic applications as well. By activating healing factors in your cells to regenerate soft tissue, it can give your skin a fuller, healthier look.
A small amount of blood is drawn, it is then placed in a centrifuge and the red blood cells are isolated from the platelet-rich plasma. The platelet-rich plasma is activated to release at least eight different growth factors and signalling proteins.
The platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the face and in combination with microneedling to deliver the growth factors to the dermis of the skin.
Since the autologous Platelet-rich plasma is processed from the patient's own blood, there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or rejection.
