What is Microneedling Treatment?
Premium Microneedling Treatments in South Bay Los Angeles
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure using a device containing multiple fine needles that we apply to the skin in various methods.
Microneedling works by creating controlled micro-injuries to the skin. As a result, such micro injuries stimulate the skin’s repair process to naturally create collagen and elastin. Therefore, it makes it an almost perfect tretament for softening fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks.
Best Microneedling Treatments to Boost Collagen Production
To sum, the micro-channels that we produce by a microneedling treatment allow for the best possible absorption of topical products like Hyaluronic Acid and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). Therefore, if you combine your microneeding treatment with Radio Frequency or PRP, you practically increase their effects in the deeper layers of skin.
How does Microneedling Treatment work?
Microneedling works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen! The Microneedling device penetrates the skin causing local cell damage. As a result, the little injuries stimulate the skin’s natural repair process and boost collagen production. Consequently, this begins the healing process and increases cell turnover.
To sum, microneedling results are smoother fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks.

At Skin Works Medical Spa, we can add Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP to your micro-needling treatment. Microneedling with PRP application is a supreme treatment for smoothing wrinkles and scars. Platelet Rich Plasma is a concentration of platelets in the blood that are essential to wound healing. When used for skin rejuvenation, PRP releases growth factors into the skin to speed up the body’s own repair process. PRP also addresses under-eye puffiness and dark circles to create a more youthful appearance. Micro-needling with or without PRP improves fine lines and wrinkles, reduces acne scars, softens stretch marks, and reduces appearance of pores.

This stimulates the infiltration of fibroblasts, which lead to elastic and collagen production. Receptor sites are created for a variety of different serums to be absorbed.
