Milton Family Medical Practice & South Coast Skin Cancer Clinic is excited to announce that we
now offer Dermapen skin needling (also known as microneedling) to treat a variety of skin problems.
As people age, their skin cells’ natural production of collagen and elastin diminishes, which can result in sagging and loose skin, wrinkles and fine line.
Dermapen skin needling is an innovative rejuvenation therapy which stimulates production of collagen and elastin for healthier, smoother and more youthful-looking skin. Basically the microneedling technique allows the skin to destroy old, damaged tissue and replace it with freshly produced collagen.
Dermapen skin needling helps skin to repair itself from damage such as cuts, scars (including from acne) and other physical damage, for example loose or wrinkling skin, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, burns, dilated pores and even alopecia.
This treatment is suitable for all the skin types and tones and is not restricted to the face. There is minimal discomfort involved in the process.
RegenLap PRP Tissue Regeneration and Repair is a therapy which can assist in the regeneration and revitalisation of damaged skin (including certain types of alopecia), the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, and improvement of the skin’s texture, tone and appearance.
The procedure involves the collection of blood from you in small tubes which are then centrifuged for 5-10 minutes. This isolates the PRP (or Platelet Rich Plasma) which is then applied by injection back into your skin. Following the procedure, patients are generally able to resume normal activity almost immediately.
The procedure is well-tolerated, safe and causes minimal to no pain (topical anaesthetic is used on injection sites). Results are also long-lasting (up to 18 months).
