Microneedling is a minimally invasive medical aesthetic procedure. It treats the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks. Dr. Linda uses the Rujuva Pen, a small hand-held FDA-approved device, to achieve the results.
HOW DOES MICRONEEDLING WORK?
Microneedling uses tiny needles to create micro injuries to the skin to increase the production of your collagen and elastin. The natural skin repair process results in a softer appearance and increased volume for a more youthful appearance.
After the procedure, there will be 2-3 days of mild redness and irritation. Full results take about 30 days to see. Most patients complete more than one session, spaced out by 4-6 weeks apart to achieve their desired results.

PRF is a better option for deeper wrinkles, hallows and more advanced skin. PFR can be used with microneedling and also as a natural filler.

Platelet Rich Plasma-PRP uses your own stem cells to create a more youthful look. Blood is taken from you and is placed in a centrifuge to separate into layers. The Platelets are isolated and used topically with microneedling on the superficial layers of your skin. PRP works synergistically with microneedling to enhance your own ability to produce more college and elastin for a more youthful appearance.
PRP is best for fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, skin tone and hyperpigmentation. It is not as effective for deep wrinkles and hollows.
