Microneedling is quickly becoming one of the most popular options for skin rejuvenation.

If you’ve heard the buzz and would like to learn more, book online or call the office to schedule a free consultation to come in and discuss microneedling, and your specific needs and goals.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that stimulates natural collagen production by creating hundreds of tiny, microscopic injuries.
At Elation MedSpa & Laser Center, the latest microneedling technology is used to create gorgeous results. Your aesthetics professional uses a powered handpiece ― the tip contains many incredibly fine needles ― that glides over the surface of your skin.
During the session, needles penetrate your skin, which triggers your body to respond by producing new collagen, elastin, and vascular structures. That helps restore some of the volume lost through the aging process, leaving your skin with a healthier, tighter appearance.
PRP is created from a small sample of your own blood, which is spun in a special device to isolate blood clotting and growth factors. Once prepared, PRP is a potent concentration for stimulating new cell growth.
Elation MedSpa & Laser Center incorporates PRP into microneedling by drawing a small amount of your blood and spinning it in a centrifuge. Meanwhile, the team applies numbing cream to your face. Once the PRP is ready, it can be applied either during or after microneedling.
Microneedling creates hundreds of tiny channels directly into the deeper layers of your skin. Those channels allow the PRP to penetrate deeply into your tissue, where it works its magic.
Numbing cream keeps your skin comfortable during the treatment, but you still might experience some discomfort as the handpiece moves across your face. Once your session is complete, the team applies a special serum or balm to soothe your skin.
After your treatment, avoid exposure to the sun, especially sunburn, or harsh products that might irritate the surface of your skin for a few days. This gives your skin a chance to heal and allows your body’s natural processes to focus all its resources on producing new collagen and elastin.
