There is no question non-surgical aesthetic procedures are in high demand. One procedure I do that I think has many advantages is micro needling. Many aestheticians do roller type micro needling which limits the depth of penetration. I use a mechanical device and couple it with PRP (platelet rich plasma). This is an outpatient procedure and takes about one hour. When we age we lose collagen in our skin and the net result is our skin gets thinner and sags more which can result in “horrible jowls”. When you puncture the skin as in micro needling you induce the production of NEW collagen. Once the micro needling is done I massage PRP in the open channels to help rejuvenate the skin. I usually recommend 3-4 treatments over the course of a year. Great procedure to have done to help reverse sun damage and improve skin texture and tone.
