Micro-Needling is a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure which is intended to significantly improve the appearance of acne scars, aged and sun damaged skin, facial and décolleté lines, wrinkles and stretch marks. The device slides along the skin, penetrating the upper layers of the skin to a depth of up to 2mm to create numerous tiny needle wounds.

It is also said to be useful in dramatically increasing absorption of topically applied skin preparations. By coupling micro-needling with PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) technology, one can get a much more enhanced result. The concept of skin needling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury occurs to the skin our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibers as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones. Micro-needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin.
Micro-needling is considered to be one of the safest skin procedures.
Usually 4 - 6 treatments would be recommended but the number of needling procedures depends on the individual skin condition. Need a powerful & effective skin care? Come in and see what products are best for your skin.

Want to know the secret? We call it a PRP STEM-U-LIFT™. Probably sounds like a new gimmick... but PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) has a long history of being used in orthopedic medicine & reconstructive surgery, and now its benefits are being implemented in cosmetic facial rejuvenation. Scientific studies date back 30 years have documented that PRP grows new collagen when injected into the skin, and newer studies show that PRP can soften sun damage and aging skin issues.
What is PRP? PRP is a natural product created from your own body. A small amount of blood is drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube that is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. Red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and the plasma (the clear fluid). This plasma now contains a higher than normal number of platelets and is called platelet rich plasma, or PRP. Why Platelets Rejuvenate Skin Platelets are the cells in the blood that stimulate tissue to heal and grow new cells. The PRP, injected into specific areas of the skin, act as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and thus acts as to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. In this way, PRP
The goal of PRP skin rejuvenation therapy is to improve skin tone and texture, tighten skin, soften lines and pores. Results begin to show 3-4 weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve with time. At least three treatment sessions are generally recommended, spaced 1-2 months apart, to achieve the best outcome. Together with a filler such as Juvéderm or Restylane, we have a skin revolution. They supplement each other to give the best final outcome of a more youthful looking face. Juvéderm or Restylane fill specific lines and folds; PRP improves overall volume, fullness, and skin tone. PRP acts to improve overall quality, tightness, and texture of the skin rather than filling individual deeper wrinkles. This is the tale of two wrinkle removers with revolutionary results! PRP therapy can be combined with laser treatments, micro-needling, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, Restylane, Juvéderm, BOTOX® Cosmetic, and/or Dysport® to best target your unique issues and thus achieve the final goal of younger looking skin. Maintenance PRP treatments should be given over time. PRP STEM-U-LIFT™ can be used for any cosmetic areas of concerns, it is not limited to face.
