Collagen Induction Therapy 
This intriguing procedure uses your own blood products to rejuvenate and enhance facial fullness, while decreasing wrinkling without the use of any facial filler or toxin.  It is prepared by drawing a patient's blood, separating the platelets from the red blood cells, blending the platelets with a fibrin mixture and injecting it into the area a patient wants to augment. It is great to use on the face or any other part of the body to fill loose and droopy skin.

What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
Platelet Rich Plasma is plasma (the "river" in which blood cells travel, carrying sugars, nutrients, clotting factors, hormones), that contains a high concentration of platelets. These platelets have high levels of growth factors that help to facilitate connective tissue healing, bone regeneration and repair, promote development of new blood vessels, and stimulate wound healing. 

How is it done? 
First,the medical assistant draws about 2 teaspoons of blood from your arm.Then, using a centrifuge, the platelets are isolated from the blood –all within about 15 minutes in the office.

Then the platelets are activated to form a Platelet rich Fibrin Matrix, allowing the release of at least 8 growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue.  These growth factors work to increase collagen & new blood flow. 

To rejuvenate the skin and tissues, these growth factors must be put back into the body below the skin.  Using numbing cream and a very small needle, the provider injects the patient's own growth factors back into the skin in a particular way. These growth factors then activate multipotent stem cells already in the skin (tricking them into “thinking” there’s been an injury and new younger tissue should be generated). The injected area is overfilled with PRP by 20 percent so that the patient can see an approximation of the final results. In the next 1-2 days the excess fill is gone and several weeks later,the fibrin matrix builds up,yielding the final result on new collagen, new blood vessels,and new fatty tissue below the skin.This results in younger, healthier appearing skin.

Platelet Rich Plasma
Collagen Induction with Microneedling 
The microneedling pen uses sterile, sealed individual disposable needle cartridges for optimal patient safety, comfort and results. Every needle tip has multiple needles, that have the ability to penetrate the skin vertically at different depths, generating small micro skin channels, while stimulating the skins natural ability to heal its self while increasing the production of new collagen.

Microneedling works by creating numerous micro-injuries to the skin to encourage and harness the power of the body’s innate ability to repair the skin through the normal physiology of skin.

 The first phase begins with the release of the bodies growth factors and the further cascade of new epidermal growth, fibroblast chemotaxis, fibroblast proliferation and matrix production. This proliferation of the body’s tissue continues to release growth factors. The second phase of wound healing involves deposition of collagen. The last phase results in tissue remodeling where the skins vascular matrix matures and  skin tightening occurs.

After your treatment your skin may be a little red and slightly tender (like a mild sunburn) for 1-3 days and you may experience a fine flaking of the skin. The results are not instant and will require 6 weeks to 3 months post treatment to see the results. 

For best results, you should plan on getting 4-6 treatments in the desired area. 

Uses for microneedling include
improvement of under eye hollowing
improvement of smile lines
hyperpigmentation treatment 
improvement of stretch marks
treatment of acne scars 
improvement of wrinkling 
improvement of hair loss 
PRP injections vs microneedling 
Both treatments stimulate the body to create its own permanent collagen, and they both get amazing results, however you will need 4-6 microneedling treatments to get the same results as one PRP injection treatment.

Microneedling is less invasive and you will have no swelling or bruising post treatment, whereas the PRP injections may cause varying levels of swelling and bruising. 

Want the best of both? Try microneedling with the topical application of your PRP using the microneedling pen to help push the platelet rich plasma (PRP) into your skin for improved results.
