Microneedling & PRP

MICRONEEDLING

Packaged in series of 3, 6, or 12

Microneedling in Las Cruces is an excellent alternative to fractional laser treatments & offers the added benefit of active infusion of skin treatment serums.  It will stimulate collagen, elastin and increase absorption of anti-aging, acne, skin lightening serums, and even platelet rich plasma (PRP) will penetrate deeper into the skin. There is no need for anesthesia, it is virtually pain-free, there is no downtime, and you can get it at a significantly lower cost than laser treatments. Skin will be radiant, smoother, have a more refined texture/tone, pores will be smaller, lines/wrinkles will be finer, and even scars will appear diminished. Many clinical studies have shown that micro-needling is more effective than other methods of treatment, including laser resurfacing, chemical peels and microdermabrasion alone. Optimal results can be seen at 8 or more treatments, which can be done up to twice a month.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) FACIAL

PRP stands for platelet rich plasma. PRP is taken from your blood and applied to (PRP FACIAL) or injected into (PRP facelift) your skin. The PRP facial utilizes the nutrients and growth factors from the sample of the your own blood and combines them with the benefits of microneedling, or, in the case of the PRP facelift, can be injected into the skin. Both processes revitalize the skin, leaving it refreshed and rejuvenated—ultimately, the skin is stimulated and produces more collagen.

PRP – How does it work?

First, 1-2 tubes of blood are taken, just like when you get routine blood tests performed.

Then, the sample is spun in a centrifuge so that the platelet rich plasma (PRP) can be isolated. Sometimes red blood cells remain in the sample, because of this a red hue is left on the skin when the mixture is applied topically.

After the area to be treated is made numb with a topical numbing cream and thoroughly cleaned and prepped, a microneedling device can be used. This device uses several sterile, ultrafine needles that create small, superficial wounds in a highly controlled way. While microneedling is going on, platelet rich plasma is intermittently or simultaneously applied to the skin. It can either be applied to the skin itself or injected into the skin (the PRP facelift).

The secret is in the platelet rich plasma, which contains key growth factors that possess regenerative and revitalizing properties that stimulate wound healing and collagen production, which is why it is believed to help reduce fine lines and scarring and improve the texture and radiance of the skin.

Benefits:

  • Visual / noticeable improvement within a few days of the initial treatment
  • Stimulates growth of collagen, elastin cells: elasticity/tone is dramatically improved
  • Cost effective (unlike lasers, no capital investment needed)
  • No known side effects or sun sensitivity after treatment
  • Little to no bruising, infection, discoloration or other complications
  • Extremely high absorption of topical serums & PRP for faster results
  • Can be used on all skin types
  • Thickens the dermis without removing or damaging the epidermis, for a more youthful appearance

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

A series of four to six treatments (separated by 4-6 weeks) is typically performed, and benefits build over time with each additional treatment. Results aren’t usually noticeable until after a few treatments, but improvements can be noticeable earlier in some patients.
