Looking to diminish the appearance of scars, boost collagen production or encourage hair regrowth?
Microneedling offers a minimally invasive solution. While microneedling dates back to 1995, it has gained significant traction in recent years thanks to new technology, research and the added benefit of PRP.
At Vitality, microneedling facials involve a medical-grade fine-needle pen that creates tiny injuries reaching up to 3mm in depth to the top layer of the skin. This is also known as collagen induction therapy. Prior to the treatment, your provider will apply custom-made numbing cream topically to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Hydrating serum, growth factors, or your own platelet-rich-plasma, for optimum results, is micro-needled into the skin.
Healing promotes cellular turnover, the diminishing of scars and wrinkles, and restores youthful volume to the skin.
Working with the body from the inside out and the outside in is our goal at Vitality. Microneedling paired with PRP and oral collaGen supplements does just that. PRP, frequently referred to as “liquid gold” holds the body’s growth factors and healing agents. When PRP is micro-needled into the skin, it stimulates the production of collagen and elastin and promotes cellular turnover. In the weeks following treatment, patients will continue to see improved skin texture, elasticity, and tone.
One of the main benefits of microneedling is its ability to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which is vital to fresh, youthful-looking skin. Vitality’s expert providers have seen microneedling with PRP to be one of the most powerful ways to stop aging in its tracks and prevent new fine lines and wrinkles from forming. Because it utilizes the body’s own natural healing mechanisms, results are 100% natural and a product of your body’s ability to heal. With minimal downtime, our expert providers frequently recommending this treatment as maintenance for anti-aging benefits.
In a 2009 study, nearly 100 percent of participants saw improvement in the appearance of acne scars with microneedling treatments. Patients frequently come to Vitality looking to erase scars from an old wound, stretch marks, and surgery scars.
