Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that helps minimize the signs of aging, improve the appearance of acne scars and rejuvenate aging skin.
Microneedling creates thousands of portals in the skin. The pen vibrates and has multiple needles (like a tiny jack hammer) at 8,500 times per minute! Multiply that by twelve small needles and you can see that Microneedling can provide an amazing stimulation of collagen production.
As an added benefit PRP can be used topically during Microneedling.
When applied this way, both the Microneedling and the PRP will stimulate new collagen and blood flow to create a smoother, healthier texture and color.
