Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a natural way to improve the look of your skin. Whether you live in sunny San Diego, or one of the colder cities, every woman wants to look her best. Years of trauma to your skin can leave a lasting mark. From pigmentation and acne scars, to fine lines and overall pore size, microneedling can help revive your skin. It involves the use of fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of the skin. This process is virtually painless, as a topical numbing cream is applied well in advance. The puncture wounds, or micro-injuries, stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process. This results in an increase of collagen and elastin production, which is key to youthful looking skin.

Platelet-rich plasma has long been known as an effective treatment in various surgical and medical fields. Today, it is catching the attention of many for its ability to revitalize skin. Both the face and neck areas can be treated. Additionally, it is also used to improve the appearance of acne scars. Because platelet-rich plasma increases type I collagen and works to repair and regenerate damaged tissues, it has the potential to promote the rejuvenation of aged or prematurely aging skin caused by repeated exposure to UV rays.
