Microneedling & Natural Growth Factor Injections

Microneedling & Natural Growth Factor Injections

What is Microneedling? 
 
As your skin matures, the collagen it produces lessens, and the elasticity dissolves. Microneedling is a non-invasive treatment that causes your skin to rejuvenate. It stimulates collagen and elastin your skin absorbs, giving you a smooth appearance. 
 
What are Natural Growth Factor Injections?
 
If your skin looks dull and limp, then this treatment will boost your skin’s vibrancy. Natural Growth Factor injections are natural, ultramodern treatments that stimulate your skin to produce new collagen and cells. Get tighter, firmer skin and a smoother appearance.

MICRONEEDLING VS. NATURAL GROWTH FACTOR INJECTIONS

The Microneedling Procedure 

At Iconique Medical Aesthetics, your safety is prioritized by sterilizing all equipment used. During the procedure, numbing ointment is used to maximize your comfort. First, your blood is drawn and put in a tube. Then, it’s poured into a machine to concentrate the platelets. Lastly, the platelets are injected into your injury or skin tissue. This causes the reparative cells in your body to multiply. Usually, patients need one to three injections to get optimal results.

The Natural Growth Factor Injections Procedure

At Iconique Medical Aesthetics, injections are used gently and comfortably so that you get luxurious results. After the treatment area is disinfected, we draw your blood in a vial and spin it in a machine to concentrate the platelets. If it’s a Natural Growth Factor Injections injection, it’s harvested until it gets a gel-like texture. The activated platelets are injected into your skin tissues and release bio proteins that increase the number of reparative cells within your body.
