For those looking to improve the appearance of their skin, microneedling is a safe, effective, and non-invasive treatment to restore and revitalize! Minimize the appearance of scarring, fine lines and wrinkles while boosting collagen production and cell regeneration using your own Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). Our Med Spa offers Microneedling in San Francisco which is packed with hundreds of growth factors, somatic cells, and cytokines known to stimulate cell repair and regeneration.

What Is Microneedling?

Based on the science of epidermal collagen induction therapy, microneedling uses very small needles to create micro-injuries to the skin.

These micro-injuries induce a wound-healing response, which stimulates fibroblast production in the dermal layer (boosting collagen and elastin). This induced wound-healing process is our body’s own natural cell regeneration in acceleration. With the Eclipse Micropen we’re able to create hundreds of micro-channels for optimal penetration of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). microneedling is a great natural alternative to lasers and chemical peels with less downtime and discomfort.

What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is the result of centrifuging (separating) blood to remove the red blood cells. What is left is a high concentrate of hundreds of naturally-occurring proteins called growth factors, somatic cells, and other cytokines. These growth factors are essential for overall cell health and function, including signaling cells to regenerate and repair tissues. Our Med Spa strives to deliver the best Microneedling San Francisco has to offer, so we pair Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) with Microneedling. It has the potential to repair and regenerate damaged skin to restore and maintain a more radiant and youthful-looking you.

Microneedling Treatment

Each San Francisco Microneedling treatment begins with a complimentary consultation with one of our trained medical providers. After creating a customized treatment and you are deemed a good candidate the procedure will begin.

  • Numbing cream will be applied to the area(s) being treated, this is for optimal comfort.
  • Once the numbing cream has taken effect, the Autologous Conditioned Plasma concentrate is applied to the skin and gently injected using our Eclipse Micro-pen Microneedling device.
  • Minimal side effects include redness and possible tenderness. These symptoms duration varies depending on the settings used and the number of passes you received. Symptoms usually resolve within 2-4 days, some in as quickly as 24 hours. Patients are advised to use adequate sun protection.

Microneedling VS. Dermal Rollers?

We did our homework before investing in our microneedling device and training. Here are some of the reasons why we choose microneedling over medical-grade derma-roller devices.

  • Adjustable depth of needle: Derma-rollers have a fixed depth, Microneedling offers an adjustable depth which is necessary to customize treatment for the various concerns of the skin (scarring is deeper than fine lines and wrinkles).
  • Sterile, single-use tips: The Eclipse Micropen has sterile, single-use, surgical-grade tips offering the highest level of safety. Many derma-roller or derma-needling devices must be sterilized by the practice after each use, increasing the possibility of contamination.
  • Penetration of the needle: With derma-rollers, the needle enters the skin at an angle, this increases the possibility of creating tears in the skin (not the beneficial micro-channels) which can lead to scarring. The Eclipse Micropen penetrates the skin vertically, creating accurately-sized micro-injuries.
  • Better results. With Eclipse’s safety and control features, we’re able to create predictable and consistent results.
