Micro-Needling and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
This innovative, non-surgical treatment popular amongst celebrities, and Hollywoods hottest beauty secret for gorgeous, glowing, smoother and firmer skin
Micro-Needling with PRP
The treatment involves the use of two procedures, micro-needling with our Collagen P.I.N and PRP done consecutively
When PRP is used with Micro-Needling, it penetrates your skin through the tiny channels the microneedles create. The PRP supercharges the microneedling benefits.
- Improves fine lines and deep wrinkles
- Reduces acne scars,evens skin tone
- Lightens hyperpigmentation and sun spots
- Reduces appearance of pores
- Firms and smooths skin texture
- Heals and reduces scars
- Reduces broken capillaries and spider veins
- Brings back the glow for fresher, younger-looking skin
PRP also addresses under-eye puffiness and dark circles to give you a more youthful, well-rested appearance. Since PRP is derived from your own blood, the side effects are virtually eliminated.
How many treatments should I need?
- While each patient is different and conditions will vary, the typical treatment regimen will consist of 4-6 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart.
Micro-Needling with the COLLAGEN P.I.N
How Is COLLAGEN P.I.N. Different From The Dermal Needling Rollers Of The Past?
Micro-needling rollers are the previous generation of needling devices. One of the many drawbacks of dermal rollers is the fixed needle or penetration depth (i.e. 0.5mm) which is not very conducive when treating an area like the face which requires different depths due to the varying thickness of skin tissue, depending on the area(s) being treated.
Therefore, having a fixed needle depth or penetration level is a huge drawback when trying to customize a treatment for consistency. Collagen P.I.N. ™ has an adjustable needle depth that allows your skincare provider to adjust penetration depth throughout the entire treatment. This will allow the medical provider to properly address the specific needs of thinner skin on your lower eyelids, crow’s feet, and forehead. Additionally, where the tissue is thicker in other areas, like the upper lip, cheeks (due to fat pads), neck and décolletage, the necessary adjustments can easily be treated with 1 needle tip instead of 5 or 6 needle rollers. The other dramatic difference is in the type of injury that occurs using the Collagen P.I.N. versus a Dermal Needling Roller.
Radiofrequency MicroNeedling with Legend Pro
Many of us have concerns about our skin, such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, skin laxity, and stretch marks but can’t afford to have the downtime associated with a more aggressive treatment. Now with the Legend Pro by Lumenis in our arsenal, we are able to treat many skin concerns with minimal downtime. Legend Pro is a combination treatment of Radiofrequency, used for skin tightening, and Radiofrequency Microneedling. Microneedling creates a superficial injury to the skin while delivering heat into the different layers of the skin. The superficial injury triggers the production of new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Legend Pro targets multiple skin layers to address the causes of aging skin. Improvement is noticed even after the first treatment but for optimal results a series of 3-5 treatments, spaced every 4-6 weeks, is recommended. After the treatment you may experience some redness and swelling that may last a few hours up to a few days. Micro scabbing is common after a few days and flakes off within usually within a week. A full face treatment takes about 30 minutes and a topical numbing cream is applied for 30 minutes prior to the treatment for patient comfort. Microneedling RF can also be done in combination with IPL, for those with pigmentation concerns, or Venezia Lift, for those with skin laxity and aging concerns. Legend Pro is not indicated for patients with pacemakers, defibrillators, any implanted electronic devices, or any metal implants in the treatment area. Schedule a complimentary consultation to see if Legend Pro is right for you.
