MICRONEEDLING & MICROCHANNELING
Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate the skin. A device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin.
PRP– This treatment involves the collection of your blood (approximately 8-16 ml), then your blood is spun down using a centrifuge that separates out plasma and platelet portion. The PRP portion of your blood is there at the point of care to re-energize your cells into rejuvenating themselves. The product is 100% your own blood by-product (autologous). Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a highly concentrated autologous serum that is rich in growth factors and cytokines such as platelet-derived growth factor, transforming growth factor, insulin-like growth factor, and vascular endothelial growth factor.
Autologous stem cells – This is a bone marrow-derived product which would be harvested from your hip (posterior iliac crest) in our procedure suite. The product consists of concentrated cells derived from the fluid bone marrow, which is reduced from a volume of approximately 50 milliliters down to 2-10 milliliters and is a source of blood forming cells (hematopoietic and mesenchymal stem cells). Each of these stem cell types have been shown to play a role in the repair and regeneration of human skin (dermis) and can be paired with our micro-needling method. Generally, this option would be paired with a bone marrow aspirate collected for a patients orthopedic/spinal condition with a small additional volume that would be collected for this esthetic application.
Hyaluronic acid is a viscous, gel-like polysaccharide that naturally occurs in the body. Its main function is to act as a lubricant and cushioning agent for eyes, skin, hair, joints and nerves. Half of the body’s supply of hyaluronic acid occurs in skin tissue, keeping skin soft, plump and supple. As the body ages, its ability to produce hyaluronic acid declines, leading to dry skin, fine lines and sagging skin.
