Micro-Needling is a minimally invasive procedure using a device containing multiple fine needles that are applied to the skin in various methods. It works by creating controlled micro-injuries to the skin. This stimulates the skin’s repair process to naturally create collagen and elastin, perfect for softening fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks. Micro-channels produced by the treatment allows for best possible absorption of topical products like Hyaluronic Acid and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), increasing their effects in the deeper layers of skin.
Treatment areas include: Face, Neck, Décolleté, Back, Abdomen, Arms & Hands, and Legs. There is little to no downtime after a micro-needing procedure. The results of micro-needling are continuing and progressive, as the treatment relies on the body’s natural healing process.
At Skin Works Medical Spa, we can add Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP to your micro-needling treatment. Micro-needling with PRP application is a supreme treatment for smoothing wrinkles and scars. Platelet Rich Plasma is a concentration of platelets in the blood that are essential to wound healing. When used for skin rejuvenation, PRP releases growth factors into the skin to speed up the body’s own repair process. PRP also addresses under-eye puffiness and dark circles to create a more youthful appearance. Micro-needling with or without PRP improves fine lines and wrinkles, reduces acne scars, softens stretch marks, and reduces appearance of pores.
