How does microneedling with tranexamic acid work?
The microneedles work to create tiny micro punctures in the dermis layer of the skin. These tiny punctures activate the body’s natural healing response on a cellular level. It successfully activates the promotion of collagen production in the skin to the damaged treatment area. This effectively works to renew and restore the skin. Through your cells’ natural function you can restore a vibrant and youthful appearance to your skin.
What Happens After The Microneedling Treatment?
Following the microneedling procedure we often take advantage of the opportunity to use various rejuvenating solutions that will directly enter the dermis following creation of the tiny channels in the skin. One of these solutions is PRP or platelet-rich plasma. PRP is derived from the patient by a simple blood draw and spun down to extract the part of the blood containing the growth factors. Following creation of the micro-channels in the skin, these growth factors directly enter the dermis and cause immediate stimulation of the collagen making factory in the skin, ultimately leading to a tighter, more youthful bouncy and glowing skin. Another solution is tranexamic acid, a solution known to very effectively disperse pigmentation in the skin over a series of treatments.
