Microneedling

This technique uses 12 fine needles oscillating on the SkinPen Precision, causing controlled micro-injuries that stimulates your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage.  The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, such as acne scars and stretch marks.  Also, as we age, our skin tends to thin-out due to loss of collagen and elastin, and the resulting loss in skin volume contributes to lines, wrinkles, sun spots and broken capillaries.  Our MicroNeedling procedure can help enhance and rebuild your skin, producing lasting results and benefits.  Added results may be accomplished with the SkinFuse System.

Benefits of Microneedling:

  • Neocollagenesis
  • Improve fine lines and wrinkles
  • Tighten and firm loose skin
  • Shrink pores
  • Smoother softer skin
  • Repair acne scarring and stretch marks
  • Face and whole body treatments
  • Lasting results
  • Minimal downtime

About the procedure:

A topical anesthetic cream is applied to the treatment area to provide comfort during the procedure. Treatment times generally last less than an hour and most patients can return to work the same day.

If you’re bothered by mild to moderate signs of aging or have sun damaged skin concern, Skin Pen might be right for you. However, if lax skin or scar reduction is your primary concern, Microneedling RF is probably your best option. The only real way to determine which procedure  will produce the best results is through an in-person consultation.

Platelet-Rich Plasma

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) AKA Vampire Facial therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient's platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints. In this way, PRP injections use a patient's healing system to improve musculoskeletal problems.

Wondering what all the fuss is about when it comes to PRP, or platelet rich plasma? PRP, is a great cosmetic injectable treatment for naturally rejuvenating the skin and repairing the signs of aging.

The treatment involves reinjecting your own platelet rich plasma into your skin, delivering an abundance of growth factors that stimulate the body’s normal healing response, helping you to achieve total rejuvenation.  

Here are five reasons you should give it a try: 

1.IT PROVIDES TOTAL REJUVENATION

PRP stimulates collagen and elastin production which thickens and tightens thinning skin, effectively smoothing wrinkles and fine lines. Because it boosts collagen, it’s also a great treatment for improving overall skin texture and tone. It’s particularly good for people who suffer from rosacea or acne.

2.IT TREATS DELICATE AND DIFFICULT TO REACH AREAS

PRP is extremely effective for treating difficult to treat areas, such as the delicate under eye area where clients often notice signs of ageing first but where no laser can be used.  

3.IT’S A NATURAL TYPE OF COSMETIC INJECTABLE

PRP uses your own natural elements without the addition of any foreign products. The treatment works by drawing a small sample of your blood, which is then spun in a centrifuge for approximately five minutes to separate the plasma from the other blood particles. The platelet rich plasma is then reinjected back into the treatment area to stimulate collagen and elastin production.  

4.IT’S SAFE

Because it uses your own natural elements, PRP is very safe. It’s also not a new treatment. It’s long been recognised and used in the hospital system and in sports medicine for its effective wound healing properties since the 1970s. 

5.RESULTS ARE LONG-LASTING

Results from PRP take between three to four weeks to appear but are long-lasting, typically lasting 12 to 18 months after an initial series of three treatments.
