AH Laser Aesthetics is now offering Micro-Needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT, with the Eclipse MicroPen™. Treat the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and improve of the skin’s overall appearance with this revolutionary new "anti-aging tattoo" treatment.
During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to naturally produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process result in the improvement of the appearance of wrinkles and skin imperfections. Automated micro-needling creates superficial micro-channels which are ideal to be used with topical gels, creams and serums to help improve the product's results and the appearance of the epidermal layer of the skin.
The application of PRP, Platelet Rich Plasma, can be done at this time during the treatment for even better results and quicker healing. Platelet Rich Plasma is obtained from your own blood, virtually eliminating any rise of a negative reaction. First, a small amount of blood is taken from the patient with a process similar to a routine blood draw. The platelets are then separated from the other blood cells with a centrifuge, resulting in a milky serum with a significant concentration of growth factors and biological nutrient-rich cells. This serum is recommended for use during the micro-needling treatment due to the platelets' ability to respond to tissue injury and initiate repair and healing.
PRP can also be injected into a specific location to target the skin from below, aiding in rebuilding and smoothing the skin from within.
