What is Microneedling?
Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy)is a minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate the skin.We use a fractional micro needling device with fine needles that creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin that create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin.
Results include improved skin texture, firmness, and tone as well as a reduction in scars, acne scars, pore size, and stretch marks. Microneedling may also be combined with a topical treatment, like PRP (platelet rich plasma) or another vitamin-rich serum for improved results. The advantages of Microneedling is the minimal downtime associated with the procedure and it can be used on different skin types, even darker skin types, much more safely than with Lasers. On the face, when combined with PRP, its commonly referred to as a Vampire Facial and we commonly use it in conjunction with PRP for hair restoration. The added benefit of having this performed at Madnani Facial Plastics is not only do we place the PRP on top of the skin, but we also place it into the deeper sub dermal layers to allow the growth factors in PRP to work though out the different skin layers.
