What Is

Microneedling involves the use of a handheld device (Manual or Automatic) that has been built with extremely fine medical-grade needles. The device is gently passed over the skin, with the needles creating micro-perforations in the skin in slightly various depths based on the patient skin needs. The perforations trigger the body’s natural healing reflex, generating new collagen production. This collagen improves overall skin tone, texture, and aids with skin elasticity while softening fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling can be paired with several other treatments such as Autologous conditioned plasma, hyaluronic acid-based serums, and growth factors, to dramatically enhance outcomes. This procedure is technically referred to as transcutaneous collagen induction therapy. 

Platelet Rich Plasma

Besides hydrating and repairing the skin, platelet rich plasma can be an effective treatments for the restoration of thinning or lost hair by boosting the growth of hair follicle stem cells and revitalizing the hair root foundation. Your platelet rich plasma contains a wealth of rich nutrients and growth factors that are vital to producing new tissue and stem cell migration which ultimately activates, rejuvenates, and regenerates cells throughout the body via its natural biology. For enhanced results, platelet rich plasma can be combined with such other injectable procedures as microneedling.
