Microneedling plus PRP
Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is an innovative and advanced anti-aging therapy designed to gently penetrate the skin to stimulate the regrowth of collagen. It effectively and safely improves the overall texture and tone of your skin, leaving you with a vibrant, glowing, and naturally younger looking appearance.
At Infuse Wellness, we are dedicated to bringing our clients the most exclusive, advanced and safest natural anti-aging therapies. Based on a comprehensive one-on- one consultation with one of our qualified Registered Nurses, we will be able to develop a customized microneedling treatment plan for you to ensure that all your aesthetic goals are met.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive, safe anti-aging treatment which, through a hand-held device, employs ultra-fine needles to break down the old scar tissue in your skin and stimulate skin cells to produce more collagen in the treated area. Not only does this reduce the appearance of fine lines and any unwanted wrinkles, it also encourages improved blood supply, helping you look and feel healthier, younger, and much more refreshed.
Common treatments: improve appearance of acne scars, eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, minimize pore size, improve appearance of stretch marks, improve alopecia, and more.
Often, results of microneedling can be further improved when used in combination with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). Studies have shown that PRP can expedite the healing process of tissues and reduce the appearance of pigmentation and acne scarring when used with microneedling.
PRP treatment involves using the patient’s own blood as a resource to isolate the platelets with a centrifuge. Because the blood is directly from the patient, the risks of the body rejecting the plasma or having an allergic reaction are minimal. The blood is separated into 3 layers which leaves the PRP available for use during the microneedling process. PRP contains proteins and several growth factors that regulate and activate cell migration and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.
By using microneedling as the supplemental delivery method for the PRP, the two treatments work synergistically which leads to more rapid collagen production. Results can vary based on a number of factors including needle penetration, overall skin health, number of passes and treatments received as well as needle size. Patients will be able to note a youthful radiance and tightening of their skin directly following microneedling with PRP, but it is recommended to receive 3-6 treatments 4 weeks apart to maintain collagen production and to optimize skin rejuvenation.
