Do you have unwanted scars that leave your skin looking harsh and pubescent? We have the perfect solution to clear those pesky acne scars.
Our PRP and Microneedling treatments are the leading solutions to remove or improve the appearance and feel of scars left on your skin from previous injury or acne.
Our PRP and Microneedling treatments provide skin tightening, rejuvenation, and reduction of wrinkles, deep acne and scars. The injections will provide essential growth factors that stimulate collagen synthesis, skin renewal, cell growth, and tissue regeneration. These treatments can help activate the local stem cells that will start to tighten, re-contour and regenerate the tissue where they are injected.
Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP is a blood plasma that is enriched with platelets. As a concentrated source of autologous platelets, PRP contains many different growth factors and cytokines that stimulate healing. What was traditionally used as a treatment protocol for only soft tissue injuries has now expanded to the medical cosmetic skincare industry.
Do you want to turn the clock back and reverse skin damage? How about erase deep wrinkles, acne scars, or improve collagen production. What is known in the industry as “The Vampire Treatment”, is a popular procedure for skin rejuvenation that utilizes your own bodies healing abilities to stimulate skin recovery and healing.
PRP can be injected under the eyes, forehead, the nasolabial folds (smile lines) and even deep wrinkles to stimulate collagen regrowth. After the treatment the area will rejuvenate and tighten, and will improve your skin tone, color and appearance. The injections will provide essential growth factors that stimulate collagen synthesis, skin renewal, cell growth, and tissue regeneration.
Microneedling is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy. Collagen Induction Therapy creates a controlled injury underneath the skin’s surface, thereby inducing the body to respond through the formation of new tissue layers of elastin- and collagen fibers, as well as new capillaries for an improved blood supply in the treated area. The skin plumps and thickens in response to this stimulus, ultimately reducing the appearance of scars, and fine lines and other skin texture changes.

What is Micro-Needling?
This fractional micro-needling device is combined with a unique spring-loaded disposable needle tip that uses an automated, vibrating stamp-like motion that enhances results while offering a more controlled and safe method of treatment than other micro-needling devices, all while causing less epidermal damage.
Multiple needles vertically stamp the epidermis, penetrating all skin types, textures, and pigments without the risk of bending, breaking, or causing more epidermal damage. It easily maneuvers around all delicate facial contours and features.
The automated needling motion minimizes pain and discomfort, while increasing the effectiveness of treatments by promoting an even absorption of topicals into the skin. It is as effective as Fractional Laser Therapy and IPL, but has a significantly shorter recovery period. Micro-needling offers exceptional results, all at a fraction of the cost.
Micro-Needling Effects on Skin
Micro-needling helps improve the thickness of the dermis and epidermis and by doing so, improving skin texture and reducing wrinkles. It also has a positive effect on hyper and hypo-pigmentation (uneven skin color/texture). Scars, especially acne scars, can also many times be improved with new collagen fibers elevating the depressed scar tissue. An improved blood supply into the previous fibrotic scar tissue can also improve the pigmentation of the outer layers of the skin.
Preparing for Treatment
Please ask Dr. Morgan for treatment instructions if you are taking Retin A, autoimmune therapies, or have extreme and active acne or other severe skin conditions.
- Avoid sun exposure to the face
- Do not apply make-up on treatment day
You will look as though you have a moderate to severe sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This is normal and will subside after 1 to 2 hours and will normally recover within the same day or 24 hours. Your practitioner will prescribe a post-procedure skincare regime.
