What is microneedling?
It can be disappointing to look in the mirror and see blotchy spots of sun-damaged skin, fine lines, and blemishes staring back at you. As we age, the body's production of collagen begins to decline. Collagen gives structure to our facial skin and helps keep it flexible and firm. Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, re-ignites this helpful protein in our skin to restore a healthy, more rejuvenated appearance. At Xage Medical Spa, the latest technology of microneedling with SkinPen® technology uses fine-gauge needles to create micro-sized holes in the dermis layer of the skin. By sending the body into repair mode, the most abundant protein, collagen, is ramped up to improve fine lines, wrinkles, and other skin imperfections.
What is PRP?
Even though microneedling is an effective standalone treatment, including PRP (platelet-rich plasma) makes it a powerful duo to restore a more youthful glow to your skin. Platelet-rich plasma is featured in an ever-growing number of skin rejuvenation and medical treatments, from muscle to hair restoration and joint repair. PRP is derived from a patient's blood sample. Platelets that contain growth factors are separated to be used for tissue repair and cell growth, along with collagen and elastin production. By enhancing the skin's healing process associated with microneedling, PRP makes its way into the dermis layer, where it can jumpstart tissue repair. It further enhances collagen production to help facial skin regain firmness, smoothness, and a youthful glow.
