(with or without PRP)
Micro-needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a treatment modality used in numerous dermatologic conditions including acne scarring, melasma, photodamage, skin rejuvenation, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), improvement of scar appearance and skin texture. It uses microneedles to create controlled puncture on the skin causing microinjury, without actually damaging the outer layer of the skin (epidermis). This sets up a wound healing cascade with a release of various growth factors. Micro-needling stimulates collagen and elastin production leading to an overall youthful appearance of skin. It is a simple, safe, and effective procedure, usually lasts 20-30 minutes depending on the area to be treated, with minimal downtime.
Platelet Rich Plasma, also known as PRP, contains a high concentration of growth factors, with regenerative effects and speeds up the healing process. The benefits of PRP may include reduction of fine lines, and wrinkles, enhancement of skin texture and tone, tightening of skin and improvement of skin laxity. PRP amplifies the regenerative effects of micro-needling for better results and patient satisfaction.
