Microneedling is a comfortable, non-surgical procedure that uses microneedles to prick the skin. This stimulates the body’s own healing process, increasing collagen and elastin for more radiant skin, and ultimately improves fine wrinkles, texture, and tone of the skin. It can also improve the appearance of acne scars.
This procedure is a great option for patients with any textured acne scarring, large pores, or fine lines. For all of our microneedling services we use SkinPen, the world’s first FDA-approved microneedling device.
Microneedling with PRP
We also offer microneedling with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) in our Athens, GA office, also known as the “vampire facial.”
How the PRP Facial Works
A tube of blood is drawn from your arm, and immediately spun down in a centrifuge to isolate the plasma, which contains growth factors, platelets, and proteins. This nutrient-rich plasma is spread over the skin, and then using our SkinPen device, we deliver thousands of controlled micro-punctures to the outermost layer of skin. The SkinPen stimulates your body’s natural healing process, breaking down damaged tissue and producing healthy new cells. By combining microneedling with your body’s own plasma, the growth factors penetrate more deeply, attracting stem cells to heal treated areas and triggering optimal collagen and elastin production.
Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling
Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling harnesses the superpowers of two distinct technologies to rejuvenate your skin.
A radiofrequency microneedling procedure involves making tiny, controlled punctures in the skin to trigger collagen and elastin production – just as with standard microneedling – but then intensifies the effect with the use of safe and painless radiofrequency energy. These energy waves penetrate deep into the dermis, where it heats target tissue, significantly boosting the collagen stimulation of the microneedling.
If you’re looking for a facial designed to lift, tighten, tone, and improve your appearance so you look years younger, ask us about RF microneedling. It is more intense, more effective, and offers speedier results than microneedling alone.
