A LITTLE TREATMENT WITH BIG RESULTS!
PRP & Microneedling
Skin rejuvenation, wrinkles, acne scars, stretch mark reduction.
Microneedling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a non-invasive treatment used for treating the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance. The goal of this process is to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin in order to naturally produce collagen and elastin. The result is softer wrinkles and fine lines. With deeper treatments, scar tissue and stretch marks can be reduced in appearance.
Microneedling treatment is used to:
- Improve skin tone and texture
- Reduce pigmentation
- Diminish the look of scarring, including acne scars and stretchmarks
Based on your skin type Gifty will apply a highly effective stem cell serum or for enhanced results, microneedling can be combined with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to the skin.
What is PLATELET RICH PLASMA? (PRP)
“Plasma” is the liquid portion of blood that serves as a medium for the red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. The platelets are blood cells that cause blood clotting and participate in the healing of injured tissue.
By using the patient’s own blood to release growth factors that stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells, we effectively allow the skin to rejuvenate itself.
Before beginning the microneedling treatment, we draw a vial of the patient’s blood and place it in a centrifuge. The spinning separates the platelet-rich plasma, which is then extracted from the vial.
The benefits of PRP include:
- Improved skin elasticity
- Improved skin tone
- Treats blemishes, age spots, sunspots, scars, wrinkles, and large pores
- Stimulates production of new collagen for smoother, firmer, more toned skin
After this simple procedure, the skin will be slightly red and flushed. You may also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch on the area being treated. This will diminish greatly after a few hours following treatments and within the next 24 hours the skin will be completely healed.
