Diminsh acne scars, boost collagen production, and improve elasticity—all while looking younger and more radiant.
The body has a remarkable way of healing itself. Like when a child falls and scrapes her knee, we all know that the wound will heal and quickly fade. Here at the Stem Cell Center, we believe that harnessing the body’s natural healing abilities is one of the best ways to improve the look and feel of your skin.
Microneedling is a popular treatment that uses ultra-fine needles to create “micro injuries” on the skin. This stimulates the skin’s built-in ability to repair itself. The treatment can result in improvement in acne scars, stretch marks, cellulite, fine lines, and uneven skin tone.
In addition to traditional microneedling services, we offer micro needling along with nanofat (your stem cells) as the lubricant for the fine needles. Alternatively, umbilical stem cells can also be used in place of nanofat. For this procedure, stem cells are injected into the skin simultaneously, which increases collagen production and enhances healing. This procedure is best for patients with fine lines, crepe-line skin, scars, and uneven skin tone.
Additionally, PRP can be applied after the treatment to further speed recovery. Microneedling augmented with the healing factors from the patient’s PRP jumpstarts the skin’s self-repair ability and can produce even faster and better results.
Important Aftercare Instructions
To achieve the best results from your microneedling treatments, our clinicians recommend just a few basic aftercare guidelines:
- Avoid washing your face for 24 hours after the procedure.
- Once that 24 hours is up, wash using a gentle face wash and stick to this gentle cleanser for a week.
- For one week post-procedure, avoid any active ingredient facial products.
- For four weeks post0procedure, try to minimize your exposure to the sun. If you’re spending extended time outside, use sunscreen.
- Avoid strenuous exercise and sauna treatments in the first 24 hours after the procedure.
The downtime for these procedures is minimal, and most patients will feel fine to return to work the next day. The skin might be slightly pink, and some patients may notice some minor peeling, but this only lasts three to five days.
Your clinician will advise you on the best skincare products to use following microneedling, ensuring optimal results and a healthy recovery. We will also advise on the need for any follow-up appointments.
