Microneedling & PRP Facials
Microneedling is a revolutionary cosmetic procedure that stimulates the skin’s own renewal naturally – providing an affordable and less-invasive alternative to plastic surgery. Microneedling not only minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, it can also diminish sun spots and age spots, as well as acne scars. The result is smoother, tighter, younger looking skin.
During microneedling treatments a clinical grade instrument is used to penetrate the skin with hundreds of ultra-fine needles. These needle “pricks” cause microscopic injuries that “trick” the skin into repairing itself by encouraging the body’s natural healing processes. This stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin – which results in skin that is renewed in plumpness, tone, elasticity – for smoother, younger skin.
When combined with injections of the body’s natural “PRP” the microneedling process accelerates the renewal of the skin at an even more rapid pace – for unparalleled results. We also offer revolutionary Pixel8 Microneedling that combines the regenerative powers of radiofrequency with microneedling for advanced skin remodeling.
Whether you are fighting the signs of aging, or have dark spots or acne scars you wish to eliminate, schedule an appointment at our East Lansing Medical Spa and see what microneedling and PRP facial treatments can do for you.
PRP Facials – East Lansing
The PRP facial is a state-of-the-art cosmetic procedure that utilizes the patient’s own “growth factor” – extracted from their blood – to stimulate the skin’s natural regeneration process.
During the treatment, the patient’s blood is drawn, just as it would be for a routine blood test. Next the blood is spun in a centrifuge, separating out just the platelets. These platelets contain up to 8 times the “growth factor” found in whole blood. This “Platelet Rich Plasma” or “PRP” – is injected into the face during the microneedling process.
The concentrated growth factor that has been injected stimulates the skin to produce collagen and elastin at an accelerated rate. This builds tighter, plumper skin cells – improving skin tightness, tone and elasticity, which smoothes out wrinkles and lines. The result is a dramatically smoother and more youthful skin!
Patients typically see results after the first treatment! While multiple treatments – spaced a month apart – lead to even greater benefits.
