How it works
Our Medical Practitioner uses multiple needles that vertically pierce the skin to create vertical channels which are designed to stimulate dermal processes leading to skin tightening and remodelling, with minimal epidermal damage. The greater density of channels leads to enhanced results over dermal rollers.
Fractional Skin Needling treatment uses vertical insertions to create thousands of tiny holes in the skin causing the release of serum growth factors which stimulate the breakdown of old fibrous collagen and stimulate new collagen and elastin development.
Results are comparable in effect to ablative treatments such as Fraxel, IPL and Laser Resurfacing but at a fraction of the cost and with much less downtime and minimal damage to the integrity of the skin.
How does the procedure work?
PRF is taken from your own blood. Prior to the treatment, one vial of blood is drawn. Next, the blood is placed inside a centrifuge designed to separate PRF from other blood components. After spinning, the PRF is harvested from the top of the vial into a syringe.
PRF is then used in conjunction with micro-needling to stimulate collagen production and cell to cell communication.
How long do results last?
We recommend a course of 3 treatments spaced 6 weeks apart. Long-term effects, such as skin tightening, collagen production and enhanced skin quality, may take up to three to four months to be noticed and can last from six to 12 months. The visibility of expected benefits and results of the PRF treatment is typically seen after six weeks from initial treatment.
