microneedling with prp

While microneedling alone has been proven to address a number of skin issues, adding treatments like PRP (aka the  Vampire facial) will amplify results and speed up recovery.  PRP (platelet rich plasma) uses stem cell science to enhance healing through its high concentration of growth factors. The tiny perforations created during microneedling deliver the platelet-rich plasma to the deepest layers of the skin. This stimulates the growth of new, healthy skin cells which help smooth skin and scar tissue over time.

about microneedling

Microneedling is a super popular skin care treatment that involves using extremely tiny needles to cause deliberate micro-injuries to your skin. These injuries trigger the natural production of collagen in your body.

Beginning in your early 20s, the dermis layer produces 1% less collagen each year which causes collagen and elastin fibres to become thinner and looser our skin to be less elastic. This causes wrinkling and sagging and therefore it is important to get treatments (such as microneedling, fraxel, plasma, chemical peels) that reinvigorate collagen production.
Microneedling is effective for collagen boosting as well as numerous other skin care cosmetic including different types of hyperpigmentation, acne, scarring, wrinkles and age spots.

Your Microneedling Treatment at Camas Medspa

After a personalized skin evaluation and consultation, one of our Master Estheticians will situate you in a private, comfortable examination room. We will prep the skin by cleansing and numbing to get your skin ready for your treatment. Depending on your needs, we will apply a topical serum to enhance the benefits of treatment. Often, we will choose a product containing hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring protein that helps keep your skin soft, supple, and healthy.

If you choose to enhance your treatment by adding PRP, this will be part of your treatment and you will begin your visit by having blood taken prior to microneedling.

If you choose the microneedling peel procedure, the peel will be applied post microneedling.

The microneedling will glide smoothly over your skin’s surface, creating thousands of very tiny punctures to stimulate your skin and deliver the applied serum or plasma. Your treatment will be fully customized to your skin type and concerns, from the ideal needle depth to number of passes required to provide you with optimal results. Patients report that treatment is quite tolerable, particularly when compared to older “rolling” microneedling devices.


Your Treatment at Camas Medspa

The process takes 30-45 minutes and your skin will be treated afterwards with a variety of clarifiers, serums, and creams for your specific skin type and issues.

You will look like you have a sunburn for a day or two, however there is no real social downtime from this procedure.

You will be provided aftercare instructions prior to and after your microneedling treatment.

For the first day or so, you may feel and look like you have a mild sunburn, but any discomfort and redness should dissipate very soon. By the following day, you can wear makeup on the treated areas, and most of our patients feel comfortable returning to work.

Because the skin’s healing and repair process will begin as soon as treatment is complete, you will begin seeing results right away, and they will continue to gradually improve for up to a year. You’ll be enjoying firmer, younger, and healthier skin in no time.
