Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine. As a non-invasive procedure that stimulates collagen, it is useful for improving fine lines, acne scars, pigmentation and even stretch marks. It is used most often on the face and décolleté to help make the skin look firm and fresh. The addition of PRP, platelet rich plasma, is an even better way to turn back the clock and brighten your skin.

How does it work?

The MicroPen is a mechanical device with many short fine needles. These needles create microscopic channels in the skin that promote new collagen and elastin. Gels containing hyaluronic acids and protein peptides are applied to the skin before and during the procedure which promotes penetration into the deeper layers through the micro channels stimulating additional skin rejuvenation.

What is PRP?

Originally known as the “Vampire Face Lift”, PRP uses your own blood to provide Platelet Rich Plasma which contains many different growth factor proteins that have long been known to have regenerative properties. PRP has been used in orthopedic surgery for years to help speed recovery. When used in combination with microneedling it can help correct a variety of age related concerns such as sun spots, fine lines, wrinkles and more. PRP can be delivered into the skin with microneedling, improving skin tone and texture, and stimulating new collagen production. It is an effective way to stimulate a more youthful appearance. Alternatively, it can be injected by Dr. Friedlander. One of the exciting applications we are exploring is PRP injections for hair loss in men and women.

PRP is a natural product obtained from your own blood. A small amount of blood is drawn by our nurse and centrifuged to separate the PRP from the remaining blood. The PRP component is removed and applied to the skin via the micro pen. Since it is your own blood, there is no chance of allergic reaction.

What does it feel like?

After the gel has been applied, the MicroPen is gently pressed against the skin. As it is moved across the surface you may feel some roughness similar to fine sandpaper.

Is there any downtime?

This is a non-invasive treatment. There may be redness lasting for 1-4 days. You may resume all activities the day after the procedure. Stinging may last a short period of time, particularly if you have sensitive skin. Emollient moisturizers will sooth the skin and speed up the post-care process. Gentle cleansers and sunscreens must be used afterwards.

How many treatments will I need?

The best results are achieved with a series of 4-6 treatments, spaced about 4-6 weeks apart. There is an immediate glow to the skin with visible changes noted as new collagen is formed. Areas prone to fine lines and wrinkles such as the lips and the décolleté may benefit from annual treatments since we can’t stop the aging process.
