Micro-needling with Hyaluronic Acid and/or Injectable PRF
Microneedling is a collagen induction therapy. Collagen induction therapy, also known as micro-needling RF or skin needling, is a cosmetic procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles. CIT should be separated from other contexts in which micro-needling devices are used on the skin, e.g. transdermal drug delivery to improve skin quality and regeneration of new collagen and elastin, and increase of skin volume and elasticity.
Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)
Platelet therapy is quickly becoming an integral aspect of cosmetic treatments. Most notably, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been used topically or as an injection to stimulate collagen production and enhance the efficacy of procedures such as fat transfer, hair loss, lasers, and micro-needling. Harvested PRP has platelets, fibrin, and white blood cells, which contribute to wound healing, collagen production, and improved elasticity. PRF is the next generation of PRP and contains very high concentrations of white blood cells, fibrin and a small number of stem cells found circulating in our bloodstreams. PRF becomes a gel after 15 to 20 minutes of being isolated and immediately upon being injected into the face or body. This allows it to be used for cosmetic volume restoration in addition to topical indications.
