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.

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.

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.
