Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. The needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months after a treatment as collagen production continues.
Percutaneous collagen induction ( PCI ) therapy or medical microneedling is a technique where a microneedling device with fine microneedles has been shown to create thousands of microscopic channels through the skin, to increase the formation of new tissue by activating the body’s wound healing cascade (hemostasis-inflammation-proliferation-tissue remodeling). COSMOPen is a state-of-the-art medical grade high speed micro-needling system that offers similar results as a fractional laser without pain, downtime, expense, and thermal damage. It is designed to improve fine lines and wrinkles, light scarring from acne, photo damage, pigmentation along with stimulation of collagen production.
The skin is cleaned and numbed with an appropriate numbing cream and using CosmoPen® device has a spring-loaded disposable sterile needle tip that uses an automated, vibrating stamp-like motion that enhances results while offering a controlled and safe method of treatment while causing less epidermal damage.
MesoMedica® Topical Solutions
CosmoPen® Micro-Needling can be used off-label to perform treatments that improve the delivery of drugs (Cosmeceuticals-MesoMedica® Solutions). Whenever we can generate openings in the skin we have an opportunity for topical to penetrate more readily through the channels created. Treatments are done every 10 to 15 days for the first month and then monthly for 3-6 months depending on the different MesoMedica® Solutions used and indication for treatment.
MesoMedica® Solutions with microneedling $200 per single treatment
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Platelet Rich Plasma is a concentration of platelets in the blood that are crucial to wound healing. When used for skin rejuvenation, PRP releases growth factors into the skin to expedite the body’s own repair process and stimulate new collagen and elastin.
A small blood sample is taken from your own body and the PRP is separated from the other components. The PRP is then topically applied to the skin immediately following a micro-needling procedure.
