WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment using fine needles to stimulate the skin’s natural healing and self-repairing process. This leads to enhanced collagen production, resulting in the treatment and improvement of fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation (from sunspots or melasma), skin laxity, and enlarged pores.
Microneedling is typically recommended in a series of 3 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. The use of PRF along with microneedling will enhance results by accelerating tissue repair and regeneration.
WHAT IS PRF?
PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) is derived from your own blood, making it 100% natural, free of additives, and packed with your own powerful cells for skin rejuvenation. Your provider will draw a sample of blood and use a centrifugation process to separate your plasma, platelets, and white blood cells form your red blood cells. Platelets and white blood cells are important producers of growth factors that are essential for collagen stimulation. Your PRF will then be delivered deep into the skin with microneedling and/or injected into the skin (such as the under-eye area) to stimulate your skin’s rejuvenation process.
Why is PRF considered more powerful than traditional PRP?
This second-generation concentrate does not require the use of any additive or anti-coagulant to unlock your body’s natural healing properties. By allowing the plasma to coagulate, the fibrin scaffold starts to form. This network of proteins will keep the blood cells more active, allowing for a longer, slower and more durable release of growth factors, thereby stimulating your collagen production for longer.
