PRP can be used in conjunction with micro needling on both the face and the scalp. PRP can be mixed with a serum to aid for an easier glide – we use 1ml my filler pure to mix ours with. We then mix this serum with the PRP and smooth it over the face for an even distribution. Next, we use our derma pen to pierce holes into the skin advancing the PRP and serum deeper into the skin.

Collagen induction therapy (CIT) is a revolutionary micro-needling (collagen induction) treatment which induces a ‘controlled injury to the skin’ causing collagen and elastin fibers to be stimulated and re produced. The technique has evolved over the years from the beginning of needle therapy seen in acupuncture, moving on to needle dermabrasion and colorless tattooing around 1992- 1997 and progressing to needle rolling in 1996. The micro needling technique became available in 2010.

As the pen glides over the skin, microscopic punctures are lightly stamped in the skin’s matrix stimulating an inflammatory, or wound healing response.  This promotes the most intense repair, renewal and skin rejuvenation. Natural growth factors are released to stimulate reformation and depositing of fresh collagen.  Unlike most rejuvenation treatments a derma pen can target 3 main cell types.

Keratinocytes: The main cells of the epidermis formed by cell division at its base. New cells continually move towards the surface. As they move, they gradually die and become flattened.

Corneocytes: The flattened dead keratinocytes that together make up the very outer layer of the epidermis, this layer is constantly worn away or shed

Melanocytes: Produce the pigment melanin that protects against UV radiation and gives the skin its color.

Fibroblasts: Fibroblasts produce tropocollagen, which is the forerunner of collagen, and ground substance, an amorphous gel-like matrix that fills the spaces between cells and fibers in connective tissue.

When a microneedle punctures these areas of the epidermis scar less wound healing is being promoted reducing the risk of irregular collagen deposition.

As the skin is made up of 3 layers, each layer contains major cells groups.  The dermis and the epidermis are the key skin layers to be targeted.

If you’re trained in micro needling, you are able to carry out PRP along with micro needling. If not, you will need to complete a top up course on micro needling
