Microneedles = Massive Results
How can Microneedling enhance your life
The needles are micro – but the transformation can be major. You’ve likely heard the buzz about microneedling to transform skin, but this treatment is so much more than just a trend. It’s powerful science at work. Ideally suited for a wide array skin and ageing concerns, you owe it to yourself to speak with one of our experts about how microneedling can become a powerful tool in your skincare regimen.
MICRONEEDLING WITHOUT PRP
Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy. It involves applying tiny needles to the skin’s surface using a handheld device. Each needle has a width that is less than a human hair and creates invisible perforations. The body responds naturally to tiny skin perforations by stimulating collagen and elastin growth which is essential for skin renewal.
MICRONEEDLING WITH PRP
A PRP facial rejuvenation is an advanced skin care treatment that uses your body’s natural healing power. Because it draws blood, it is sometimes called a “vampire facial”. Your blood is composed of components like plasma, red blood cells and white blood cells. Concentrated plasma platelets can create magic. Concentrated levels of plasma platelets can be achieved by separating the components of your blood, so the platelets are concentrated into the plasma.
The term “PRP therapy” refers to any use of “platelet-rich plasma” to benefit the body. Anti-ageing treatment involves the injection of PRP in specific areas and depths of the skin. Your skin eventually absorbs the PRP which reduces recovery time from microneedling and speeds the production of collage
Is is right for You
Are you a good candidate for a Microneedling
A vampire facial is very beneficial and is suitable for most people. At times, side effects of prescription anti-ageing creams and lotions can be severe depending on skin type and allergies. But because this type of facial uses blood from your body, there is no risk of allergic reactions. (The chances of your body rejecting a native substance is virtually nil.
Microneedling with PRP could be for you, if:
- You have acne scars
- You have hyperpigmentation
- You want to reduce wrinkles and fine lines
- You want firmer, tighter skin
- You have uneven skin tone
- You are not ready to have a facelift
- You have dry skin
- Your skin looks older than it is
People who have certain blood-related or clotting conditions that require regular blood thinners are not ideal candidates for this treatment. You may not be the right candidate if your expectations are the same for this procedure as one would expect from a facelift. To reverse the damage caused by extreme sun exposure, you must take drastic measures.

The delicate, thin skin around your eyes and hairline, as well as the area around your mouth, is very sensitive. You may feel the treatment, but it will not cause any discomfort or pain.

The average treatment for skin rejuvenation takes four sessions. Each session should be spaced out four to eight weeks apart. You only need five treatments to dramatically improve the appearance of keloid scars with microneedling. In two to four sessions, acne scarring can be treated.
All You Need to Know About Microneedling
