Medical Microneedling is a treatment that stimulates collagen production by causing pinpoint injury to the skin and applying plasma.
Microneedling is great for treating fine lines, wrinkles, correcting texture and also assists in hyperpigmentation.
Here at the Better You MedSpa, we use the Candela Exceed. This device is FDA-cleared medical microneedling system for the treatment of both facial wrinkles and facial acne scar reduction. Each treatment session delivers powerful results with minimal downtime.
Platlet-riched plasma (PRP) contains proteins, including growth factors and cytokines. These proteins are essential in the repair of tissue. PRP is retrieved by collecting blood through a venipuncture and is then spun into a centrifuge. During a microneedling treatment with PRP reintroduces the persons own collagen into the dermal layer to induce cell proliferation.
Microneedling might not be the best option for you if you:
still have active acne resulting in new scarring
have certain skin conditions
have a history of poor wound healing
have undergone skin radiation in the last 12 months
