There are plenty of gimmicks, trends, and crazes within the beauty industry; however, we’re here to talk about one that’s bound to stay. Microneedling, also known as Epidermal Collagen Induction Therapy (ECIT), is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars, and the improvement of skin tone, texture, tone, and colour.
Microneedling with medical grade tools, such as the state-of-the-art Eclipse MicroPen, creates controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. The skin repairs itself, resulting in a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles and scars, decreased pigmentation, and overall improvement of your skin. It also creates micro-channels, which allow topical gels, creams, and serums to be absorbed more effectively, enhancing the effects in deeper layer of the skin. A specific substance used as a serum that has been proven to be most effective is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).
The platelets in our blood contain healing growth factors, which are like signal callers that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply. This results in five times more collagen and elastin production than using any other serum used with your microneedling treatment! After your comprehensive consultation with Dr. Gupta, a special collection tube is used to draw your blood and is placed into a centrifuge by a phlebotomist and after 10 minutes of centrifugation, the platelets are concentrated and drawn up into a syringe. The PRP is then used as a serum as the microneedling pen glides over your skin and absorbs into the micro-injuries. This leads to benefits such as improving the appearance of uneven skin tone, acne scars, traumatic scars, and stretch marks on your face, neck, and décolletage.
Unlike other treatments that are invasive, pricey, and show little results, microneedling is affordable, effective, leads to minimal downtime and discomfort. It’s safe for most skin types and leads to natural results. You’ll love the look and feel of your skin.
