Facial Microneedling in Glenmore Park – Everything You Need to Know
If you’re looking to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and long for a more radiant complexion, then facial microneedling at our Glenmore Park dental clinic could be your go-to treatment.
What is facial micro-needling?
In the simplest of terms, microneedling involves the insertion of ultra-fine short needles into the facial area to rejuvenate the skin. These tiny needles stimulate the production of collagen without causing damage to the skin, making it look instantly firmer and smoother.
Microneedling Facial at our Glenmore Park Practice – How it Works
Here at Bright Dental Group, Dr Kim combines microneedling with a PRP procedure that uses platelet-rich plasma taken from the patient’s blood. You may have heard it referred to as a ‘vampire facial’.
The aim of combining microneedling and PRP is to target imperfections such as
- Fine lines
- Uneven skin tones/texture
- Large pores
- Marionette lines
with micro-injuries (perforations) that cause growth factors to be released and triggers the wound healing process, This, in turn, promotes the production of collagen to create firmer, smoother looking skin.
What’s the procedure?
During treatment, Dr Kim takes a small sample of the patient’s blood and places it into a centrifuge to separate the PRP.
While this is happening, the face is cleansed and numbed to ease discomfort. The microneedling device is then run over the area to be treated.
The PHP concentration is then applied and left to penetrate the skin. Patients can expect their skin to feel taut and in the following weeks, their skin tone and texture will gradually improve.
Results should be seen in 4-8 weeks – the time it takes for collagen production. To maintain glowing clearer skin, we recommend 6-monthly maintenance treatments.
Microneedling with PRP is ideally suited for anyone wishing to improve minor skin imperfections.
