WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Using tiny needles, which penetrate the skin’s superficial, mid and deep layers, micro-injury of the collagen and elastic tissue stimulates the body’s own wound healing response. As a result, new collagen and elastin are produced, resulting in improvement in the resiliency and thickness of aging and sun-damaged skin.
At Atlantic Skin Care, we offer 3 levels of rejuvenating microneedling procedures:
- Basic skin freshening microneedling, performed by our Medical Esthetician under physician supervision, combines the benefits of hyaluronic acid rehydration with collagen stimulation. With minimal discomfort and down-time, this is a quick, affordable procedure that can be repeated any time your dry, dull skin needs relief.
- PRP “Plasma facials,” performed by our team of physicians and nurses, assisted by our Medical Esthetician, combines the benefits of PRP growth factors and medium-depth microneedling. A small sample of your blood is processed on-site under sterile medical conditions to prepare a solution of platelet-rich plasma, which is then delivered to your skin using the microneedling device. Following a series of sessions, significant improvement can be seen in fine lines, discolouration due to sun damage, and some types of acne scars.
- Beauty Booster, performed by our Dermatologists, combines the benefits of Redensity 1, a hyaluronic acid filler formulated with a mixture of antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins and minerals, and deep microneedling, using a unique V2 injection system. Following a series of 3-5 treatments, expect to see improvement in more advanced fine lines, crepiness, and dull, damaged skin.
