What is microneedling
Microneedling also called collagen induction therapy, is an aesthetic treatment that uses tiny needles to stimulate your natural healing powers and improve the appearance of your skin. The process is among the most popular treatments at Marvel Cosmetic and creates gorgeous outcomes without the need for invasive cosmetic surgery.
The power of microneedling lies in its ability to trigger new collagen production. When you’re young, a thick layer of collagen pads your face, which gives the youthful contours known as a babyface. As you age, you lose much of that natural padding.
Without the same support, your skin is left to fall and sag into folds, lines, and wrinkles. Any textural irregularities become more apparent, and hollows can develop under your eyes and in the cheeks. Without proper stimulation, your body won’t replace that lost collagen.
How does microneedling work?
Microneedling uses a treatment handpiece covered in thin, sterile needles. Marvel Cosmetic is proud to deliver microneedling using the SkinPen® system. The device moves those needles swiftly in and out of your skin, creating thousands of tiny punctures.
Your body perceives those punctures as wounds and rushes to launch a repair process. New collagen is produced, which smooths your skin and creates a firmer look and feel. Some of the issues microneedling can improve include:
- Enlarged pores
- Uneven skin tone
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Age spots
- Acne scarring
- Loss of elasticity
Best of all, microneedling can improve multiple issues during the same treatment, making it a great investment.
What role does PRP play in microneedling?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a solution created from a small amount of your blood. A blood sample is drawn and spun in a centrifuge to separate the solids from the liquids. The platelets are isolated and reintroduced to the cleared plasma.
Platelets are responsible for blood clotting and contain growth factors. PRP is a powerful solution that boosts your healing function and also reduces inflammation.
Incorporating PRP into your microneedling treatment helps your body create new collagen, and also lessens swelling and speeds overall healing. Each channel created by the treatment needles acts as a corridor to let the PRP reach the deeper layers of your skin, where it can be most effective in rejuvenating your skin and banishing fine lines.
