Micro-Needling w PRP
Micro-Needling is an innovative treatment for reducing the appearance of fine lines and acne scars, and improving the overall tone and health of the skin.
The addition of PRP (platelet rich plasma) immediately after the micro-needling can increase the efficacy of the procedure and can treat scars and deep wrinkles.
Micro-needling with PRP is often referred to as the PRP Facial® since PRP is obtained from a patient's own blood. The blood is then processed to isolate the patient's growth factors, which helps stimulate collagen and elastin. *
SkinPen disrupts the junctions between the skin cells, temporarily disrupting the skin’s barrier function. This brief, mechanical disruption does not cause the melanocytes (pigment-producing cells) in the epidermis to react by increasing pigment production and darkening the skin in a process called hyperpigmentation. Therefore, SkinPen can be used on all skin types, including darker skin that is more susceptible to hyperpigmentation. *
Dr. Cole-Sedivy personally performs the deeper levels of micro-needling at Monarch Aesthetic Medicine which is done for scarring or deeper wrinkles.
Topical anesthesia is implemented in combination with our micro-needling procedures.
