The purpose of microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), is to induce collagen and elastin production by causing controlled and precise micro-injuries. Microneedling with SkinPen® helps to correct wrinkles, lines, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and tone, in addition to reducing wrinkles and lines. Skin is left more radiant, lighter, and tighter as a result! All skin types can benefit from this treatment, which typically requires 3-6 sessions. SkinPen® microneedling can be used to treat the face, neck, chest, hands, back, and abdomen.
Some of the benefits of Microneedling with SkinPen® include:
● Improves fine lines & wrinkles
● Quick procedure
● Minimally invasive
● Suitable for all skin types
● Improves acne scarring
● Excellent for skin rejuvenation
● Healing continues after the procedure
Microneedling and Natural Growth Factor injections are two separate procedures combined into one treatment that help speed up the healing process. First, we will use the SkinPen® microneedling device to create microchannels for the skin. By creating microchannels, microneedling increases the absorption of topical gels, creams, or Natural Growth Factors, stimulating collagen production.
Natural Growth Factor injections are the second part of the procedure. Natural Growth Factors are made from the patients’ own blood. The growth factors are separated from the blood by centrifuging a blood sample after it has been obtained from the patient. It is spun for six minutes before the growth factors are extracted.
Highly concentrated natural growth factors speed up soft-tissue regeneration. In order to stimulate the natural healing process and collagen production, the growth factor serum is applied directly to the microchannels created by the SkinPen® microneedling device.
Microneedling with natural growth factor injections is ideal for treating acne or surgical scars, wrinkles and fine lines, stretch marks, lax skin, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, large pores, and uneven skin texture. Suitable for all skin types and colors, it can be applied to the face or body.
