How does Micro-Needling work?
Addresses signs of aging by causing thousands of microscopic injuries inducing the body’s natural healing factors, sending collagen and elastin to repair and rejuvenate the skin. It minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, as well acne scars, thinning (crepey skin), and stretch marks.
How is the procedure performed?
The Micro-Needling Procedure is preformed by using a small tool with a varying number of microscopic needles. Needle length adjusts depending on the treatment area. When applied to skin, it created controlled microscopic wounds that are invisible to the naked eye. The micro-injuries to the skin initiate the skin’s repair process which includes naturally producing collagen to the affected area. Even when the procedure includes no topical treatment, the rush of collagen and elastin to heal these microscopic wounds improves the skin’s appearance. Micro needle therapy is minimally invasive.
What is PRP therapy?
Micro-Needling creates thousands of microscopic channels in the skin, making it fertile ground for a topical application like PRP. Platelet Rich Plasma is a concentration of platelets in the blood that are crucial to wound healing. When used for skin rejuvenation, PRP releases growth factors into the skin to expedite the body’s own repair process and stimulate new collagen and elastin. The micro channels allow even distribution across the treatment area as well as absorption into deeper layers of the skin. To obtain PRP, your doctor places a vial of your own blood into a centrifuge, separating the platelets from the blood. Micro-Needling is an excellent treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, but the true power of this treatment is unleashed when used with PRP. PRP therapy is an added procedure and is not included in our regular Micro-needling treatment.
How long before seeing results?
Visible improvement appears about 1-2 weeks from the time of treatment. Optimal results are achieved with a series of 3-6 treatments spaced out 4-6 weeks apart. Extreme acne scaring could take up to 6-8 treatment for best results.
Can Micro-Needling be performed without PRP?
Yes, here at Da Vinci we offer Micro-Needling performed with environ skin care serums and A, C, E oil. Post treatment home skin care and serums are included in our treatment.
What are the benefits of Environ Serums?
- The three peptides incorporated into this unique serum are Matrivy 3000, Trylagen, and Matrixyl synthe
- The clinical trials of the raw materials show that the peptides are excellent for faster and more impressive changes in overall improvement of the appearance of the skin
- The visible increase in plumper and smoother looking skin
Considerations before treatment?
- Do not perform needling within 48 hours of Botox treatments, or 2 weeks after dermal fillers. Preferable performing these procedures 1 week after needled skin has settled
- Not recommended for immunosuppressant treatments
- Care and precaution must be taken for diabetic patients
Micro – Needling results in the production of increased collagen, elastin, and growth factors by the body. All active ingredients in our skin care products can reach into the depths of the skin exponentially more effectively than simple topical application, thereby assisting natural repairing of fine lines and wrinkles.
Micro-Needling With PRP
We obtain platelet-rich plasma by drawing a small amount of blood from your arm into a sterile tube. This sample is centrifuged to separate your plasma, which we use for treatment, from your red and white blood cells. Plasma contain high concentration of platelets, stem cells and growth factors. Platelets help your tissue heal and grow new cells. When PRP is used with micro-needling, it penetrated your skin through the tiny channels the micro-needles create. The PRP supercharges the micro-needling benefits. PRP also addresses under-eye puffiness and dark circles to give you a more youthful, well-rested appearance. Since PRP is derived from your own blood, the side effects are virtually eliminated.
