Mircroneedling for Skin Rejuvenation

Skin Care Doctors, P.A. is excited to now offer Microneedle Skin Rejuvenation treatments. Microneedling is considered to be one of the safest methods for natural skincare, as it does not cause any damage to the skin or the epidermis. There are many excellent benefits to microneedling, including the fact that it works for all skin types.

What is Microneedle Skin Rejuvenation

Microneedling is an innovation in aesthetic dermatology for the improvement of skin texture, shrinking pores, tightening of the skin, reduce fine lines, reduce wrinkles, acne scarring, stretch marks and overall skin rejuvenation. During this treatment the microneedle creates thousands of controlled micro-injuries to initiate the skin’s natural wound repair process resulting in an improvement in the appearance of your skin.

How are Microneedle Treatments Performed

The treatment area will be cleansed to ensure that there is no oil or debris on the skin. We will provide you with a topical anesthetic to keep you comfortable during the treatment. Once your skin is numb, the topical will be removed, and the microneedling will begin. The micro-pen will be passed over the skin, making very small micro-punctures. Some pin-point bleeding is anticipated during treatment, however it is so subtle that it will subside before you leave the appointment. Once the treatment is completed our staff will apply ice packs to the treated areas to help with any discomfort while also going through aftercare instructions (for facial treatments a cooling mask will be applied at the end of your treatment). The total treatment time is around 60 minutes including prep, treatment, and aftercare. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately after treatment, though you may experience some redness or sun-burn like sensation for 1-2 days after treatment.

Microneedle with PRP

Platelet-rich plasma is found within your very own blood. It contains dozens of growth factors, which have healing and regeneration properties. When used in conjunction with microneedling, PRP delivers an added boost of collagen production and rejuvenation. First, blood will be taken from your arm. It will then be spun so that the platelet-rich plasma is separated from the red blood cells and other impurities. Once this has been done, the platelet-rich plasma is applied to the areas that will be treated by the microneedle to stimulate new collagen production and to re-energize your cells. Platelet-rich plasma allows the body to take advantage of normal healing pathways at a highly accelerated rate.
