Creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body's natural wound healing process; body thinks it's injured and creates collagen and elastin to heal itself which helps with skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and loss of elasticity
Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, is a great way to address signs of aging at the cellular level. This treatment excels when used for fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling is also great for scar revisions and reducing the appearance of stretch marks.
At Pure Aesthetics, we use the SkinPen – the only FDA-approved microneedling device on the market that also offers two ways to avoid cross contamination. As the SkinPen glides over your skin, it creates micro-point punctures. This trauma to the skin allows your body to go into its natural wound-healing mode, boosting collagen and elastin production, resulting in tighter, younger skin.
There are three phases to the wound-repair process:
PRP stands for platelet rich plasma. Platelets are found in the blood and contain important growth factors that promote cell regeneration and repair. During this procedure our RN draws the client’s blood and centrifuges it which separates the plasma. The aesthetician then applies the PRP, also referred to as liquid gold, to the clients skin while microneedling. The result, overall improvement in firmness, youthfulness, fine lines and reduction in acne scars.
This treatment combines a mild chemical peel (lactic, glycolic, or salyslic acid) with microneedling, which encourages quicker cell turnover, improving the texture of leathery skin, acne scars, and wrinkles.
The cold hyaluronic acid delivered post microneedling allows for a deeper delivery of hyaluronic acid as well as encouraged recovery time. This combo of collagen boosting services will have your skin flawlessly tight, plump, fewer wrinkles, smaller pores and hydrated.
