Microneedling, also known as micro-channeling or collagen induction therapy can be used to revitalize the skin. The MD NeedlePen uses a sterile needle tip containing 12-36 micro-needles to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin. These micro-punctures initiate an inflammatory response that causes the body to begin the natural healing process producing collagen, which is great for smoothing fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, surgical scars (including C-section scars), and stretch marks.
MD NeedlePen treatments can be performed on all parts of the body:
Shortly after the treatment the skin is red or pink. The MD Needle Pen is ideal for all skin types. Results are noticeable with each treatment but for maximum results four to six treatments in series spaced 4-6 weeks apart are suggested.
To speed the healing process, microneedling is further enhanced by injecting PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) into the treated tissue. The PRP is obtained from drawing a small amount of your own blood, from which the plasma is separated to concentrate healing properties. Microneedling with PRP can be used in several different areas of the body, including the face, neck, arms, décolleté, arms, abdomen, back, hands and legs.
PRP is created from a person’s own blood, and is a concentrated blend of plasma cells and specific growth factors. When injected into tissue, it bathes the cells to naturally stimulate the healing process. This advanced technique is often used by professional athletes who need to recover as quickly as possible, to help to reduce recovery time. As a regenerative technique that accelerates the body’s natural healing processes, in conjunction with microneedling, the treated area of skin can restore and rejuvenate for a firmer, more youthful texture and flexibility.
Microneedling with PRP has many benefits, including:
Microneedling with PRP is available to clients who want to improve the appearance of the skin on various body areas. Microneedling is also an effective treatment for reducing the appearance of stretch marks and scars. It is a safe and effective treatment for all skin types. The depth of the microneedling will be adjusted for each individual and the body areas to be treated. This low-risk treatment is appropriate for clients with darker skin types and for clients for whom laser treatment would be inappropriate.
Before your treatment begins, a numbing gel is applied to the area so the process is comfortable. The appropriate depth for the microneedling will then be selected, based on your skin type and condition. Our clients report that the treatment is not uncomfortable, with a sensation like a light sandpaper moving across your skin. Treatment requires about one hour to complete, depending upon the size of the body area to be rejuvenated.
After your treatment, you will notice immediate results, which will continue to improve over the next few days and weeks. As your body’s natural collagen production is now stimulated, you should see the texture and quality of your skin continue to improve for up to six months. Recovery time is about one to three days depending on how aggressive the treatment.
Microneedling with PRP is any effective, highly advanced technique to trigger natural collagen production in the skin tissues. Microneedling with PRP can do wonders for skin that has begun to show the signs of age. Your body’s natural healing processes are accelerated with PRP, and as the collagen production increases, your skin regains its natural elasticity, smoothness, firmness, and glow.
