Micro-needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) allows for a controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin, which triggers new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose a significant risk for permanent scarring. Micro-needling is utilized to treat the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, minor trauma scars, hypo/hyperpigmentation, and improving the skin’s overall appearance. Additionally, since micro-needling creates superficial micro-channels, the procedure may be combined with the use of PRP, topical gels, creams, and/or serums to further aid in the overall appearance of theskin. Downtime is minimal and the procedure is normally completed within 30-60 minutes depending on the required treatment and anatomical site. Micro-needling can be performed virtually on any area of the body, but is commonly used on the face, neck and chest.
Platelet Rich Plasma, or also known as “PRP” is an injection treatment whereby a person’s own blood is used. The treatment involves a fraction of blood, collected or ‘drawn up’ from the individual patient into a syringe. The collected blood is then spun down in a special centrifuge to separate its components. PRP is then injected back into your skin to stimulate new collagen production and to re-energize your cells into rejuvenating themselves, as the release of growth factors from the platelets amplifies the healing process. The full procedure takes approximately 45 minutes ‐ 1 hour, and downtime is minimal. PRP is commonly combined with Micro-needling for ultimate skin rejuvenation.
