Collagen Renewal

microneedlingDid you know that collagen is the skin’s Superhero? Collagen is the protein responsible for the strength and texture of our skin. Abundant collagen is the reason why kids and babies have that soft, luminous glow. The youthful face, the face we all admire, is one that is collagen-rich. But as the years go by the collagen in our skin begins to degrade, and slowing collagen production causes the skin on our face to become looser and the cushioning underneath thinner. The result? Wrinkles and folds begin to take hold. Microneedling, or more formally Collagen Induction Therapy, is a non-invasive “lunchtime” procedure that promotes your body’s own collagen renewal processes. No need for surgery or injections. Microneedling stimulates your body to produce collagen all on its own, naturally.

Our micro-needle tip cartridge penetrates deep into the skin producing infinitesimal “micro-tears” that spur the body’s own reparative collagen renewal.  Add our special Growth Factor Package for more rapid results.  Or, for focused attention on problem areas around the face, we recommend Microneedling PLUS.  Using a specialized head, your technician can target problem spots such as acne scars, oversized pores, and fine lines through micro-targeted collagen induction to help minimize facial roughness in those areas of the face.

Microneedling with PRP

How about Microneedling with a boost? We offer Microneedling with PRP.  The “PRP” stands for the platelet-rich plasma we isolate from a sample of your blood and reapply through the micro-channels that are created during the Microneedling process.  PRP contains a high concentration of the platelets, stem cells and growth factors that help in the generation of collagen cells—your own body’s PRP boosting your own body’s collagen renewal.  What could be more natural?

Microneedling RF

The latest and most innovative approach to collagen induction therapy is Microneedling RF.  The “RF” stands for Radio Frequency. Bipolar RF heat energy and micro-needles facilitate effective, non-surgical skin tightening and skin rejuvenation with little to no downtime.  During this treatment, RF heat is precisely and safely delivered deep within the skin layers to stimulate and remodel collagen and cause elastin cells to regenerate.  The result?  Firmer, smoother skin.  This treatment is available to all skin types.
