Microneedling + Radio Frequency
This dynamic duo creates a powerful treatment option for skin resurfacing with minimal downtime and maximal efficacy.
As mentioned before, by penetrating the skin’s surface using tiny needles, a healing response is initiated to create both structural and cosmetic improvements. Radiofrequency within the tiny needles amplifies the production of collagen and elastin significantly. The result is smoother, firmer and younger-looking skin that continues to improve over time. See our Morpheus8 page for more details. We also offer Fractora, Enymed and Infini, which operate using comparable technology.
Microneedling + Growth Factors
Combining microneedling with growth factors, is commonly referred to as the Vampire Facial.
Activated platelets and growth factors found in blood plasma are derived through a simple blood draw, much like a routine blood test. It is then run through a centrifuge to separate the plasma and the platelets from red blood cells.
When this plasma is applied to the skin immediately following a microneedling treatment, the platelets are easily absorbed into the skin, repairing the tissue in that area. Platelets do this by releasing healing proteins that are called growth factors. When platelet levels are significantly higher than their normal concentration, the skin’s ability to rejuvenate is considerably increased. Collagen and elastin production is stimulated which thickens and tightens thinning skin, effectively smoothing wrinkles and fine lines.
