What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a type of collagen induction therapy that is extremely effective in treating, preventing, and reversing signs of aging. It is also known for its ability to incredibly transform the appearance and texture of your skin. Microneedling involves using very fine needles to create hundreds of tiny punctures in the dermis. These micro-perforations stimulate cell turnover and the production of new capillaries, collagen, and elastin which strengthens the skin to give you a more youthful complexion and overall healthy appearance.


What Is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma is a concentrate derived from your own blood that contains several different growth factors and other cytokines to stimulate healing. PRP is created by drawing a small amount of blood, which we then spin in a high-speed centrifuge to separate the red cells from plasma and platelets resulting in a liquid called PRP. This life-changing serum works to accelerate the healing process, and strengthen replacement cells through the introduction of important growth factors that when applied have an incredible healing effect.
