When the skin is wounded, blood platelets first go about the task of healing the wound. Once the wound is closed, the body produces new collagen and elastin, along with new skin cells, to repair the skin.
The idea behind microneedling is to trigger this production of collagen and elastin through hundreds of microscopic wounds. These microscopic punctures begin to heal almost immediately, but the body reacts as if wounded, producing new collagen, elastin, and skin cells and sending them to the “wounded” area. This improves skin texture and firmness, and reduces large pores, stretch marks, and acne scarring.
We are proud to offer microneedling at Form Medical Spa, and if you desire we can also include platelet-rich plasma (PRP) with your procedure. We invite you to contact us today to schedule your appointment.
