MICRONEEDLING Skin Rejuvenation with PRF Microneedling PRF Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that has become increasingly popular in recent years because it delivers tremendous outcomes with almost no downside as it leverages your body’s own healing properties to provide immediate improvement for a variety of skin issues. As opposed to conventional microneedling, we use PRF, which is about 35-50% stronger than regular PRP and MUCH stronger than regular microneedling as it uses your body’s growth factors. What is PRF Microneedling? PRF Microneedling provides a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment to create something known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). By creating tiny punctures in the skin’s epidermis layer, this technique stimulates collagen, reduces pores, revises scars, promotes hair regeneration, and diminishes fine lines and wrinkles. Enhanced with PRF, it capitalizes on the skin’s ability to repair itself resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance with more collagen production and tighter skin. How Does The Procedure Work? The entire procedure typically takes around 60 minutes to complete, though this may vary depending on the size of the treated area. The number of sessions needed varies based on your specific goals and skin condition. 01 Blood Draw The patient’s blood is drawn and processed to extract the patient’s own platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) which is quickly processed in a centrifuge to separate the PRF from other components of your blood, such as red blood cells and plasma. 02 Numbing for Comfort To ensure a pain-free experience, we start by applying a topical anesthetic, typically a BLT cream (Benzocaine, Lidocaine, Tetracaine), to the patient’s skin. 03 Delicate Precision A thin layer of PRF is applied topically. This allows our skin-needling device, equipped with 12 fine needles, to smoothly glide over the skin during the procedure. Our skilled practitioner gently applies the device to the epidermis, where it penetrates the skin to a depth of up to 2mm. This process creates the response needed with the applied PRF for maximum results. 04 Activating Natural Healing These micro-perforations act as signals for the body to kick start its natural healing process, stimulating the production of elastin fibers and collagen. Over time, this leads to fuller, more youthful-looking skin. We typically recommend 1 treatment every month for 3 months, then 1x – 2x a year for on-going maintenance.
