Microneedling with PRP/PRF Snoqualmie, North Bend, Issaquah, Sammamish
Microneedling (Candela Exceed)
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure to treat skin concerns. It make surface level punctures on the skin with tiny needles, and the body works to heal the cuts and results in a refreshed look. The process rejuvenates your skin by boosting collagen production, which in turn reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and elevates the overall texture of your skin.
The Candela Exceed™ medical microneedling device is the first dual-indicated, FDA-cleared medical microneedling system for the treatment of both facial wrinkles and facial acne scar reduction. It is the latest technology that’s quickly replacing dermal rollers and other anti-aging methods on the market.
It usually requires 3-4 treatments to see noticeable improvements at initiation. Then 1-2 times each year for maintenance.
What is PRP/PRF
Before we delve into the transformative journey that awaits you, let us first understand the powerhouses behind this treatment - PRF and PRP.
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma): PRP is a concentration of platelets and growth factors created from a small amount of your own blood. These components foster cell regeneration, promoting a youthful and vibrant skin appearance.
PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin): PRF is a second-generation derivative of PRP. It contains a higher concentration of platelets, white blood cells, and mesenchymal stem cells, offering a more sustained release of growth factors, thereby enhancing the rejuvenation process further.
Together, PRF and PRP form a potent combination in regenerating and revitalizing your skin, enhancing its texture, and bringing forth a radiant and youthful glow.
What is Microneedling with PRP/PRF
Delve into the ultimate skincare rejuvenation with Microneedling combined with PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin) and PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma), a technique revered by celebrities, influencers, and athletes for its impressive instant skin revitalization effects.
Commonly known as the "vampire facial," this upgraded version of the regular microneedling procedure promises to elevate your skincare routine to stellar heights. Using a handheld device furnished with hundreds of minute needles, controlled micro-punctures are created on the top layer of your skin. These tiny injuries act as catalysts, initiating your body's natural regenerative processes, boosting collagen and elastin production, and addressing a plethora of skin issues.
What sets a Microneedling with PRP/PRF facial apart? After the creation of micro-punctures, a blend of PRP and PRF, sourced from your own blood, is applied to the treated areas. This process not only accelerates the healing journey but also enriches your skin cells, creating a nourishing environment for regeneration and rapid healing.
How does Exceed microneedling work?
Microneedling uses controlled damage to agitate the skin just enough to trigger a healing response. When very fine, single use needles penetrate the skin through the Exceed device, the deeper layers of skin respond with increased cell regeneration. The skin also starts to produce more collagen, which is what keeps it looking tight, smooth, and youthful. As we get older, collagen production tends to slow down. So, you might think of microneedling as a natural collagen infusion for the skin.
Does microneedling hurt?
It depends on the treatment intensity. But as the needles are very tiny the pain is most likely to be minimal. If you have sensitive skin, you can apply numbing cream to minimize pain during the procedure. You will experience some redness and mild swelling for 2 to 4 days. Your skin will become smoother and radiant in a week.
When will I see results with Exceed microneedling?
