We Are Proud to Now Offer Micro-Needling Treatments With PRP(Platelet Rich Plasma).

Micro-needling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, works to lift, tighten, and rejuvenate the your skin. As a result of your treatment, you will achieve softer, younger skin with minimal downtime.

What Sets Us Apart?

The device we use with the combination of PRP. The Procell therapy device was designed so there would be no risk of back flow of fluids causing cross contamination which has been a problem with other “pen style” machines.

The larger sized tips also allow for a tapping, rather than a dragging, motion which creates a nice vertical pattern of micro-channels in the skin. Dragging a pen across the skin is the only way smaller tips can treat larger areas more quickly, but it creates a “cat scratch” effect that has been nicely demonstrated in the clay models.

What Is PRP?

Platelt-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentration of platelets in the blood that are crucial to wound healing. When used in skin rejuvenation, platelet-rich plasma utilizes your own body’s healing ability to stimulate skin recovery, boost collagen production, and tighten skin. PRP can treat anything from fine lines and sun damage to deep wrinkles and acne scarring. It requires a simple blood draw from the arm. A centrifuge is then used to separate the platelets in platelet rich plasma.

What Are the Benefits of Micro-Needling With PRP?

Micro-needling with PRP uses fine needles to create micro-channels in your skin. It initiates the skin’s natural ability to heal itself, producing collagen and elastin, while PRP represents a way to enhance the healing of your skin cells, increasing the growth factors of your skin. The two therapies work in synergy to create a treatment that brings better results than each part could alone.
