How Does Micro-Needling Work?

The micro-needling device is a small medical device that is around the size of a pen. The end of the device contains a closely set group of 12 tiny needles. These fine needles are used to stimulate the skin via tiny punctures, which creates a controlled skin injury. Every small puncture forms a channel that prompts the body to fill in those small wounds with brand new collagen and elastin via the process of neovascularization and neocollagenesis.

Micro-Needling Recovery

Micro-needling does not require any major recovery time. The skin may be pink or reddish for between 12 and 48 hours, but this will resolve quickly. For the first 2 to 3 days after treatment, patients should avoid AHAs, which include products like glycolic acid or retinol. It is best to avoid sun exposure for at least several days post-treatment and to use zinc-based sunblock to protect skin after that. Micro-needling can be done around every 4 to 6 weeks until the desired results are achieved.

Add PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) with Mirconeedling

Micro Needles
PRP is a concentrated, natural product created from your own blood. Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells. PRP treatments help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, stimulate your own collagen production, provide a healthy glow, and restore skin elasticity.
