OUR SERVICES – PRF Microneedling

TIGHTEN SKIN AND REDUCE DISCOLORATIONS with platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) microneedling, which also increases collagen production.

Why Skin Texture Issues Arise

Our skin naturally changes over time, producing less sebum, collagen, and elastin. Cellular turnover slows, causing dead skin cells to build. Hormone fluctuations lead to the overproduction of melanin, forming hyperpigmented areas. Repetitive sun exposure prematurely ages skin, photoaging, forming sunspots. Also, ultraviolet light directly damages the skin and underlying tissues by producing reactive oxygen molecules that trigger collagen breakdown and inhibit new collagen formation. The result —  dehydrated, dull skin with fine lines, dimples, and hyperpigmentation.

Wear SPF every day, cloudy days too. Chemical peels can help by exfoliating dead skin cell build-up, and some can rejuvenate the dermis below the surface. Laser therapy is also an option to treat different layers of the skin. Microneedling is another effective option, one we use in combination with platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) to maximize restoration. Microneedling activates the dermal layer of skin, ramping up collagen and elastin production. The combination of microneedling and PRF helps achieve smoother skin, decreased pore size, and a more even skin tone.

How It Works

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is a blood concentrate therapy that harnesses the body’s natural regenerative processes via platelets. Platelets contain a host of growth factors necessary for tissue healing, including stimulating new collagen, elastin, and blood vessel formation.  Micro-vertical punctures in the epidermis and dermis, via microneedling, combined with PRF trigger collagen and elastin formation and deposition. Cellular turnover also ramps up, aiding overall skin regeneration. The result — a radiant complexion.

FAQs

How is PRF collected?

Your blood is drawn via venipuncture and then spun in a centrifuge, separating the different cell types. The concentrated layer containing the platelets is separated and then microneedled into the skin.

Why are collagen and elastin production important for the skin?

Collagen plays a crucial role in skin strength and hydration.  Elastin provides resilience and elasticity to the skin, giving it that bounce-back ability. 

Can PRF microneedling decrease acne scarring?

Yes, PRF microneedling is effective in reducing mild to moderate acne scars. Three to five treatments are recommended for optimal outcomes.  

 

Can PRF microneedling treat hair loss?

Yes, microneedling PRF into the scalp has been shown to increase hair growth by stimulating inactive hair follicles and nourishing active hair follicles to produce thicker darker hair for a longer period of time.
