How does Micro-needling Work?
Rich Plasma (PRP) facial uses your body’s own growth factors and plasma to
stimulate connective tissue. It contains growth factors and peptides, and we
provide other nutrients, such as hyaluronic acid, an excellent hydration complex. Initially, your blood will be drawn by a medical professional, and placed in a centrifuge, where it is separated into red blood cells and plasma. Plasma is the clear serum in the blood and it contains growth factors that stimulate regrowth of connective tissue. It is used in other medical modalities
, but for facials
, it stimulates collagen
and elastin fibers
Then, a small series of 20 fine, short needles are passed over the skin of the face,making micro perferations in the skin. There is no damage or removal to the epidermal layer. The post traumatic response of the skin is to produce collagen and elastin. And since there is no damage to the existing collagen
, it adds to what is there, causing an increase.
