PRP with Micro Needling
Micro Needling with Radio Frequency
For skin that has wrinkled and sagged as a result of aging or sun exposure, Micro Needling is considered to be one of the most effective non-invasive affordable treatments. The benefits of the procedure are evident through its ability to trigger the production of collagen in the skin, which helps patients regain some of the firmness and elasticity it has lost through skin damage. What makes the treatment even more remarkable is that it diminishes discolorations and scars that have formed from severe acne breakouts and other skin conditions. It’s a very effective treatment for stretch marks as well. It’s a highly requested treatment, but for those who haven’t tried it, there are details they should have, so they can make an informed decision on which method of treatment that will work best for them. Micro Needling is a unique process that uses micro-needles to penetrate the dermis, which helps to dramatically improve the skin without downtime or pain. And although there is a perforation to the skin, there is no damage caused to the dermal layer during the procedure. The patients are extremely satisfied and will normally experience accelerated results when Micro Needling is combined with skin improvement treatments like Platelet Rich Plasma treatment or Radio frequency.

What is Micro Needling and how does it work?
Micro Needling is a minimally-invasive procedure that tightens the skin, minimizes fine lines and wrinkles and reduces acne scars and discolorations while building collagen. The treatment involves using a mechanical device with tiny needles that create tiny holes in the skin. As the holes are made, the controlled injury triggers the body to respond by producing collagen, which tightens the skin, smooths wrinkles, adds lost volume and reduces the presence of acne scars, fine line and stretch marks. Because the needles pierce the skin to go beneath the skin’s surface, there is concern that skin will be damaged during the procedure. On the contrary, the dermis is not damaged and the results show overall improvement.
What is Micro Needling with Radio Frequency?
Micro Needling with Radio Frequency is a technique that combines traditional Micro Needling with radio frequency heating that helps smooth out wrinkles, induce collagen and elastin reproduction and eliminate blemishes caused by acne scars dramatically more than with Micro Needling alone. The treatment involves using tiny insulated needles to permeate the skin to a depth that boosts the skin’s ability to generate collagen and heal blemishes. The technician has the ability to control how deep the needles puncture the skin as well as how much heat is applied, and how long the heat is applied, therefore achieving the maximum results. The combination of injury and heat will stimulate the fibroblasts and enter a repairing phase, thus tightening the skin, volumizing the dermis and eliminating the ice-pick, boxcar and rolling scars caused by atrophic acne. Skin will bounce back quicker, appear thicker and balance in color without injuring the dermis. Micro Needling may not be safe for patients with current acne, rosacea or psoriasis.
Do the Micro Needling procedures hurt and is there downtime?
No. The Micro Needling procedures are designed to be painless. It requires no surgery, so there’s little to no discomfort. For patients who are a little sensitive, numbing ointment can be applied to the treatment area. Patients can normally return to their usual activities after the procedures.
Are there side effects that accompany the Micro Needling procedures?
Some individuals may experience a temporary mild inflammation in the treatment area, but it normally clears up soon after the treatment.
How much does Micro Needling cost?
One session can run between $250 and $500 depending on the location of the clinic and how extensive the treatment is.
How long does each Micro Needling session take and how long does it take to see results?
Each session is about 30 – 60 minutes, depending on topical numbing cream, and patients can expect to see results within a few weeks.
How often should the Micro Needling treatment be performed on a patient?
The frequency of having the procedure performed will depend on the individual and how their skin responds to each treatment. Typically, a series of 6 treatments are performed around 2 – 3 weeks apart.
