Microneedling - Natural Skin Rejuvenation
Microneedling is a procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin creating tinyl wounds. The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Microneedling is mostly used on the face to minimize scars, wrinkles, and large pores while tightening or rejuvenating loose or aging skin. With microneedling collagen production is accelerated, along with cellular turnover. While some results may be almost immediate, your best results usually won't be visible until four to six weeks after the procedure.
In addition, professionals can use microneedling to deposit medication, such as topical tretinoin or vitamin C, deeper into the skin. This can boost the treatment of a variety of issues, including acne scarring

WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING WITH PRP?
One of the ways in which microneedling has advanced at Skin Envy austin in recent years is through the addition of PRP.
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, and its addition is taking microneedling treatments to the next level. Your blood contains red cells, white cells, and platelets.
The platelets contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are very important for healing injury, especially to the surface layers of the skin.
For a PRP treatment, your blood is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the platelet rich plasma from the blood cells. The plasma is then applied to your skin during a microneedling treatment. Basically, your blood, hyper-concentrated with these growth factors, is injected back into the body.
Microneedling can also be combine with Sculptra, an injectable cosmetic filler that can be used to restore facial volume lost due to aging or illness. It contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible synthetic substance that stimulates collagen production. It can be used to treat deep lines, creases, and folds to give a more youthful appearance.
Using exosomes for anti-aging might be the future of rejuvenation. It certainly seems to be the next stage in the evolution of rejuvenative therapy. Microneedling creates hundreds to thousands of "micro" channels to stimulate the skin's natural wound healing process to prompt tissue remodeling without causing scar tissue formation. The rapid release of growth factors in Exosomes promotes the body's natural healing process. The rapid release of growth factors in Exosomes promotes the body's natural healing process. This leads to an improvement in both the appearance and texture of your skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production
