Want to turn back the hands of time? Reverse sun damage? Erase deep wrinkles and crow’s feet? How about erasing deep acne scars and pitting? Finally, there is a surgical-free option that achieves all these goals: The PRP Micro-needling Facial.
ON THE CUTTING EDGE
The PRP Micro-needling Facial, also known as PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma, makes use of platelets, which are drawn from a small amount of your own blood. These platelets contain a number of growth factors that can stimulate collagen synthesis, cell growth, tissue regeneration. All of which can stimulate skin recovery and smoothing with amazing anti-aging results.
Your treatment area is rolled with a derma roller. A derma roller is a cylindrical-shaped drum that is studded with tiny fine “microneedles”. Gently pricking your skin with the derma roller stimulates the creation of new skin cells and regeneration of damaged cells. Your own PRP is then massaged into the skin. The goal is to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin and the creation of new cells. Your skin will glow and immediately feel smoother and softer, with progressive improvements continuing for several months.
