MICRONEEDLING WITH PRP!

PIN microneedling

Microneedling with PRP is a cosmetic treatment that stimulates collagen production by rolling fine needles over the skin and applying platelets, which are one of the components of blood. The addition of PRP from the blood may make microneedling more effective. … These proteins help skin tissue repair itself. PRP is created from a person’s own blood, and is a concentrated blend of plasma cells and specific growth factors. This blood sample that is taken in office is then placed into a centrifuge which separates the plasma from the red and white blood cells. Plasma contains a high concentration of stem cells, platelets, and growth factors to help stimulate collagen and elastin production for youthful-looking skin.

What are the Benefits of Microneedling with PRP?

Ultimate Trio – Microneedling+Dermaplane+Growth Factors

Although micro-needling is a safe and effective skin rejuvenation treatment by itself, studies have shown that using skin-enhancing serums in conjunction with micro-needling often optimize results. At glowMD, we offer multiple treatment options for micro-needling to address your specific skincare concerns, including Micro-needling with Dermaplane & growth factor serum.

What is Micro-Needling with Dermaplane & Growth Factors?

One of the safest and least invasive methods for skin rejuvenation, micro-needling involves moving a pen-like device with tiny needles over treated areas. The needles penetrate to a specific depth below the skin, stimulating a process known as Collagen Induction Therapy that restructures existing collagen and increases collagen production in the skin for continued improvement over time.

One of the latest developments in micro-needling is the use of growth factors to aid in the regeneration of fresh new cells and tissues to improve the skin at a cellular level beneath the surface. These factors can be found in the patient’s own blood and formulated into PRP using a sterile centrifuge process, but for clients who are interested in utilizing growth factors in their treatment but who do not wish to have their blood drawn can benefit from Biopelle Growth Factors which can be purchased at glowMD. SCA  growth factors, derived from snail secretions, dramatically regenerates skin tissue by stimulating youthful cell growth to smooth wrinkles, boost collagen and elastin and maintain moisture levels. Prescribed dosage of the individual ampules shows results in as little as 7 days.

Dermaplaning, also known as blading, is a safe and simple skin rejuvenation treatment intended to exfoliate the epidermis and remove vellus hairs (peach fuzz), leaving the skin smoother and looking healthier. This exfoliation allows for your skincare products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers. Dermaplaning is an ideal treatment for those with excess vellous hair because this hair often causes dirt and oil to clog in the follicles. Removing this hair gives the patient healthier looking skin. This is the perfect add on for many aesthetic procedures including laser, microneedling, superficial chemical peels and facials. Dermaplaning is also a prime exfoliation treatment option for those who are pregnant or nursing and not allowed to use chemical peeling agents.

This procedure is not traumatic and is a non-invasive way to remove dead skin cells to renew the skin. Our licensed medical esthetician will use a blade to stroke the skin at an 45 degree angle similar to shaving.  This is a very safe procedure and only requires that you avoid taking any medications that could cause the blood to thin such as Accutane, Retinols, or any anti-inflammatory drug. Finally, do not wax before your treatment since this interrupts the hair growth cycle.  Other than this there is no special preparation before or after your procedure and you can combine the Dermaplaning with Micro-needling, a light peel or facial.

COLLAGEN P.I.N. DIFFERENT FROM LASERS?

PIN microneedling

At GlowMD Laser MedSpa, we all know as we age our ability to regenerate new skin cells and collagen diminishes.

Years of trauma to our skin leaves a lasting mark, contributing to aging factors such as scarring, pigmentation, fine lines, and overall pore size and texture. There are a wide away of effective methods to treat and rejuvenate your skin from laser based treatments, chemical peels and finally micro-needling.

Micro-needling is a method of introducing a controlled wound into the skin triggering a release of natural growth factors, new collagen & elastin.

 This process causes much less damage to the epidermis than dermal rolling and other ablative treatments, which helps to protect the new skin cell growth providing for quicker healing and a much higher success rate for overall and longer lasting results.

(Percutaneous Induction Needling, also referred to as PCIT, Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy… a.k.a. micro-needling, or automated micro-needling)

P.I.N. is a method of introducing a controlled wound into the skin triggering a release of natural growth factors, new collagen & elastin. This process causes much less damage to the epidermis than dermal rolling or lasers and other ablative treatments, which helps to protect the new skin cell growth providing for quicker healing, higher success rates and longer lasting results.

WHAT IS AUTOMATED MICRO-NEEDLING?

Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy or PCIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s appearance. During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with the appearance of softer wrinkles. Automated micro-needling also creates superficial micro-channels, which allow topical serums and creams to be absorbed more effectively into the skin. Collagen P.I.N. is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market. Click below and let us help you find a Collagen P.I.N. provider in your area today.

HOW IS COLLAGEN P.I.N. DIFFERENT FROM THE DERMAL NEEDLING ROLLERS OF THE PAST?

Micro-needling rollers are the previous generation of needling devices. One of the many drawbacks of dermal rollers is the fixed needle or penetration depth (i.e. 0.5mm) which is not very conducive when treating an area like the face which requires different depths due to the varying thickness of skin tissue, depending on the area(s) being treated. Therefore, having a fixed needle depth or penetration level is a huge drawback when trying to customize a treatment for consistency. Collagen P.I.N. ™ has an adjustable needle depth that allows your skincare provider to adjust penetration depth throughout the entire treatment. This will allow the medical provider to properly address the specific needs of thinner skin on your lower eyelids, crow’s feet, and forehead. Additionally, where the tissue is thicker in other areas, like the upper lip, cheeks (due to fat pads), neck and décolletage, the necessary adjustments can easily be treated with 1 needle tip instead of 5 or 6 needle rollers. The other dramatic difference is in the type of injury that occurs using the Collagen P.I.N. versus a Dermal Needling Roller.

HOW IS COLLAGEN P.I.N. DIFFERENT FROM LASERS?

When used correctly resurfacing lasers can be a great tool for treating aging skin. However, lasers use focused light to produce heat to destroy certain colors of pigmentation and vaporizes skin. This is great for targeting dark spots but often leads to complications when treating patients with naturally darker skin. Collagen P.I.N. ™ breaks up pigment mechanically and remodels the collagen without heat or the light. When the heat is removed from the process, it makes for a much safer, more comfortable and more consistent treatment. No heat also equals less downtime! Most Collagen P.I.N. ™ patients have a healthy pink glow immediately after the procedure, which lessens dramatically within 24 hours or less. Most patients are back to work the same day and out to dinner the same evening and experience little to no downtime.

HOW IS THE PROCEDURE DONE?

A sterile needle-tip containing 12 to 36(optional) tiny micro-needles is attached to the Collagen P.I.N. ™. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical serum to your skin and select the appropriate treatment depth based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the Collagen P.I.N. will be gently glided across the skin in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered. This results in thousands of microscopic channels throughout the entire treatment area.

MICRONEEDLING – POPULARITY IS STEADILY CLIMBING!

What is Collagen P.I.N. Microneedling?

The Collagen P.I.N. (Percutaneous Induction Therapeutic) microneedling device is a pen-like device that houses very fine, sterile needles. When passed over the skin, the Collagen P.I.N. creates a series of small punctures, or “micro injuries,” which effectively triggers your body’s natural healing response to injury.

As we age our ability to regenerate new skin cells and collagen diminishes. Years of trauma to our skin leaves a lasting mark, contributing to aging factors such as scarring, pigmentation, fine lines, and overall pore size and texture. There are a wide away of effective methods to treat and rejuvenate your skin from laser based treatments, chemical peels and finally micro-needling.

This process promotes an increased production of collagen and elastin in the treated area, which gradually increases the firmness of your skin, reduces blemishes, improves signs of aging and sun damage, and minimizes the appearance of scars—all without having to remove layers of skin with lasers or chemicals.

Aside from providing an overall improvement in the health and radiance of your skin, microneedling is a wonderful choice for improving the following skin concerns:

  • Signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage, including discoloration
  • Scarring from acne, chickenpox, or surgery
  • Large pore size

Microneedling is a safe option for virtually every skin type and color, unlike other more invasive skin treatments. It can be performed almost anywhere on the body, including the face, neck, decolletage, hand, arms, and back.

Why The Collagen P.I.N.

The benefits of microneedling Collagen P.I.N. has made advancements in both the design of the device and application techniques. With three times more needles than other devices on the market and the ability to be customized to each patient, Collagen P.I.N. boasts superior results and a quick treatment.

Complimentary Consultation

A personalized skin evaluation and consultation will be performed before microneedling is scheduled. We want to make sure that you are an appropriate candidate for the procedure.

The Day of Microneedling Treatment

One the day of your session, we will take photos to follow your progress. We will prep the skin and, depending on your needs, apply a topical serum to enhance the benefits of treatment. Often, we will choose a product containing hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring protein that helps keep your skin soft, supple, and healthy.

The Collagen P.I.N. device will glide smoothly over your skin’s surface, creating thousands of very tiny punctures to stimulate your skin and deliver the applied serum. Your treatment will be fully customized to your skin type and concerns, from the ideal needle depth to number of passes required to provide you with optimal results. Patients report that treatment is quite tolerable, particularly when compared to older “rolling” microneedling devices.

After your Treatment with Collagen P.I.N. Microneedling

After your treatment, we will apply a special moisturizer to hydrate your skin and promote proper healing. For the first day or so, you may feel and look like you have a mild sunburn, but any discomfort and redness should dissipate very soon. By the following day, you can wear makeup on the treated areas, and most of our patients feel comfortable returning to work.

Because the skin’s healing and repair process will begin as soon as treatment is complete, you will begin seeing results quickly, and they will continue to gradually improve for up to a year. You’ll be enjoying firmer, younger, and healthier skin in no time.

Intense Pulse Light Rejuvenation

Say goodbye to the effects of sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and more. With the innovative Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photo facial procedure, gentle skin rejuvenation is now easier than ever. IPL photo rejuvenation is the latest in modern dermatology, allowing patients to transform red, blotchy skin into a radiant complexion. If you suffer from any of these problems, photo facial treatments may be the dermatological approach you’ve been looking for.

People with white, untanned skin that is still somewhat elastic are the best candidates for an IPLphotofacial. It is also important for patients to have a realistic understanding about what the procedure can do. When performed on the right person, it effectively improves skin texture, eliminating discolorations, reducing pore size, and minimizing wrinkles and fine lines. If you have rosacea, a condition that causes blotchy redness in the face, you may also benefit from an IPLphotofacial.

VBeam Laser

Vbeam® Laser Treatment for Treating Redness, Veins, Birthmarks, Scars

The VBeam laser corrects vascular conditions by targeting redness, causing the blood vessels to absorb the light and the redness to absorb into the body. Facial veins, scars, birthmarks, rosacea, and certain red bumps can all be treated with Vbeam® laser treatments with excellent results and no damage to the surrounding skin.

How Does The VBeam Work?

We will treat the selected area with a brief, but intense, gentle burst of light that will destroy the blood vessels being treated but leave the rest of the face alone. Red veins respond to this treatment better than the blue arteries, and the effects of the Vbeam® laser treatment are often immediately noticeable. It feels like and little more than a brief sting is all most patients experience. Cool packs are provided if desired.
