Latest Technology in Skin Repair
Microneedling (Collagen Induction Therapy)
This is one of the newest innovations in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s texture, and tone and color. During the procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin. This in turn stimulates your own body to produce collagen and elastin with little to no downtime.
Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a concentrated blood sample that contains high levels of platelets. Platelets contain growth factors that are responsible for stimulating tissue regeneration and repair (collagen stimulation). Growth factors derived from platelets are responsible for soft tissue repair, bone regeneration, development of new blood vessels, and stimulation of the wound healing process. The concentration of autologous (from your own body) platelets and growth factors are roughly 4-6 times greater than that found in whole blood. Unlike other products, it delivers a broad range of growth factors in the proper concentration. There is not a more natural product than one’s own growth factor.
SkinPen: The Newest Advancement in Microneedling Therapy
The SkinPen is a new microneedling device used to improve skin on the face and body affected by fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. It works by triggering the skin’s natural self-repair process by creating micro-injuries to the affected area. The skin will then begin collagen synthesis to repair the area without causing scar tissue to form, leaving behind healthy-looking skin.
An average SkinPen procedure takes 30 minutes, depending on the size and severity of the area being treated and requires little to no downtime. Because of the cordless design and variable depth of the pen, the SkinPen procedure can be applied to many areas of the body, such as the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.
