Microneedling


Microneedling

Have you heard about the Vampire Face Lift that Kim Kardashian had? Want to refresh your skin? Tired of large pores, acne scars? Don’t have the down time for a deep chemical peel. Microneedling is your answer.

Microneedling is a simple procedure that can be done in your lunch hour. First, a local anesthetic cream is spread all over the face. Following this, a specialized instrument is used to make extremely tiny holes in the surface of the skin. The purpose is twofold. First, by making small holes in the skin, the skin is triggered to grow new collagen, and refresh. Therefore, you have made a controlled injury in the surface of the skin causing the skin to regenerate. The second purpose of making the small holes is that these holes serve as micro channels to allow topical medications such as Vitamin C to enter through channels into the deeper layers of the skin to further enhance the regeneration effect. Another such “add-on’s” that can be used other than Vitamin C is PRP or Platelet-Rich-Plasma. PRP is the non-cellular component of your blood and it contains numerous growth factors and proteins that can kick start the regeneration effect of tired skin. Any area of the body can be Microneedled!
