Unlock Your Skin's Potential: Microneedling & PRP

Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure suitable for all skin types. It involves creating numerous micro-punctures on your skin’s surface to activate your body’s natural healing response. The procedure is also known as collagen induction therapy because it activates your body’s collagen production capabilities and skin cell regeneration, thus improving your skin texture, pores, wrinkles, scars, etc.

 

Want to increase your results? 

Microneedling is often customized at Aura Aesthetics with PRP/PRF infusion add-on. Platelet-rich fibrins (PRF) are the growth factors found in your own body via a simple blood draw. We then spin it in a centrifuge to isolate the growth factors, which aid in skin cell generation and the formation of new collagen fibers and elastin. During the microneedling process, the nutrient-rich PRFs are delivered into your skin’s deeper layers to speed up the healing process.

REal REsults

Don't take our word for it.

These before-and-after shots speak for themselves!

If you opt for microneedling with PRF, the treatment will start with a simple blood draw. The doctor will draw a small amount of your blood and spin it through a centrifuge to isolate the PRFs from the rest of the blood. The doctor will apply numbing cream over the treatment areas before starting.

The FDA-approved microneedling device consists of superfine needles customized to target a specific depth. As the handheld microneedling device moves over your skin, it creates numerous micro-punctures on the skin’s surface while delivering the harvested PRFs into the desired depth. The whole process concludes in about 15 to 30 minutes.

  • WHO PERFORMS THE BOTOX INJECTIONS?
    All Botox injections at our center are performed by our highly trained Aura Aesthetics medical providers. Your care and comfort are our top priorities!
  • HOW DOES BOTOX WORK?
    Botox functions as a neuromuscular inhibitor, effectively relaxing facial muscles and smoothing out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Our treatments commonly target areas between the brows, forehead, and around the eyes for optimal results.
  • HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?
    On average, the results of Botox treatment endure for approximately 3-4 months. However, some clients may experience longer-lasting results. To maintain a smooth and wrinkle-free appearance, our clients usually undergo three to four Botox treatments annually.
  • DOES IT HURT?
    Aura Aesthetics is staffed with highly trained and experienced injectors dedicated to ensuring your comfort. While Botox injections may cause a slight sting or prick sensation, our skilled team strives to make the experience as comfortable as possible for you.
  • WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME?
    There is no downtime associated with Botox treatments. You may encounter slight tenderness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site, but these effects generally resolve within hours to a few days after the treatment.
  • WHAT ARE FILLERS?
    Dermal Fillers provide instant smoothing of moderate to severe lines around the nose and mouth. They also address volume loss in the cheeks, offering a lifting effect. The results are natural-looking and can last up to two years, depending on the type of filler and the placement area.
  • HOW LONG DO FILLERS LAST?
    Fillers can provide optimal correction for up to two years. Some evidence suggests that hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvéderm and Voluma may stimulate the production of new collagen in your body, potentially extending the duration of improvement.
  • DOES IT HURT?
    Generally, there is minimal discomfort during the treatment process. To enhance your comfort, especially in sensitive areas like fine lines around the mouth or in the lips, a topical numbing cream may be applied before the treatment.
  • WHAT IS A HYDRAFACIAL?
    The HydraFacial treatment represents a breakthrough in aesthetic technology. Its name originates from the root word "Hydrate," emphasizing its ability to cause the skin to take up moisture.
  • WHY IS HYDRAFACIAL GOOD FOR MY SKIN?
    Hydration forms the foundation of healthy, radiant skin. Skin irritation has been shown to accelerate signs of aging. The HydraFacial, being a hydrating and non-irritating treatment, promotes radiant, glowing, and nourished skin, leaving you with a rejuvenated and refreshed complexion.
  • AM I A CANDIDATE FOR THIS TREATMENT?
    The HydraFacial treatment is designed to cater to all skin types, including the most sensitive ones. Your Aura Aesthetics technician can select specific treatment serums and customize the procedure to address your unique skin conditions and needs. It's a versatile and inclusive treatment suitable for a wide range of individuals.
  • HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE? IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME OR PAIN INVOLVED?
    The HydraFacial treatment is a quick and efficient procedure, taking approximately an hour of your time. Described as feeling like a cool paintbrush moving over the face, the treatment is generally comfortable. There is no downtime, and you can apply makeup and resume your normal activities immediately after the treatment.
  • HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
    Most clients only need one treatment. However, based on the degree of wrinkles, skin laxity and volume loss clients may benefit from additional treatments. Because skin continues to age, additional treatments can help clients keep pace with the body’s natural aging process.
  • WHAT IS IPL?
    Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, commonly known as a photo facial, is an advanced skincare technology designed to promote youthful-looking skin with improved firmness, tone, and texture. This safe and FDA-cleared option is effective for addressing sun damage, anti-aging concerns, and overall skin rejuvenation. IPL specifically targets: Pigmented Lesions: Including freckles and age spots. Vascular Lesions: Such as small blood vessels. Skin Firmness: Enhancing the tightness and resilience of the skin. Uneven Skin Texture: Improving the overall smoothness and consistency of the skin. Experience the benefits of IPL for a radiant and revitalized complexion.
  • HOW DOES IPL WORK?
    IPL works by delivering light energy that gently heats the upper layers of your skin. This controlled heat absorption in targeted areas stimulates your skin cells to regenerate new collagen. Through this process, your skin is rejuvenated, restoring its natural beauty, blending its natural colors, and creating a smoother, vibrant, and more youthful appearance. Additionally, the photothermal energy eliminates fine vessels causing redness and reduces unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions. IPL offers a comprehensive approach to skin enhancement, addressing various concerns for a revitalized complexion.
  • WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH IPL?
    IPL treatments can be applied to any area of your body. However, due to frequent exposure to the damaging effects of sunlight, the most popular treatment areas include the face, neck, back of the hands, chest, and shoulders. This flexibility allows for targeted improvement in various regions, addressing specific concerns for a comprehensive approach to skin rejuvenation.
  • WHAT DOES IPL FEEL LIKE?
    IPL treatment is gentle, noninvasive, and safe. While individual tolerance may vary, a topical anesthetic is typically not necessary. If you happen to experience any discomfort during the procedure, communicate with your Aura Aesthetics treatment provider. They can offer a topical numbing cream to enhance your comfort and ensure a pleasant experience.
  • HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
    The number of treatments required varies from individual to individual, and your Aura Aesthetics treatment provider will customize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. Typically, a common approach involves a series of three to six treatments to achieve optimal results.
  • WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER IPL TREATMENT?
    Immediately after treatment, mild redness may occur, and you may experience a sensation similar to a slight sunburn in the treated area. This discomfort is expected to dissipate within a few hours, although in some cases, it may last a day or two. Several days post-treatment, you can start noticing healthier-looking skin. Sun spots, age spots, or broken blood vessels should begin to clear up within one to two weeks, revealing improved skin tone and texture.
  • WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
    Microneedling is a procedure where a device slides along the skin, penetrating the upper layers to a depth of up to 2mm. This action signals the body to respond by producing collagen and elastin fibers. Consequently, the skin becomes fuller, reducing the appearance of scars, lines, and wrinkles. Microneedling is a rejuvenating treatment that stimulates the skin's natural healing processes for improved texture and tone.
  • WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
    With a numbed face, the microneedling treatment feels like little more than light pressure on the face, occasionally accompanied by a mild sparking sensation. The numbing helps ensure your comfort during the procedure, making it a generally tolerable experience.
  • WHAT IS PRP?
    PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, is crafted from a person's own blood. It is a concentrated blend of plasma cells and specific growth factors. When injected into tissue, PRP bathes the cells, naturally stimulating the healing process. This innovative approach utilizes the body's own resources to enhance healing and rejuvenation.
  • WHAT IS MY RECOVERY TIME?
    The inflammation of the skin is very temporary and significantly reduces within a few hours post-treatment. It may remain slightly pink for up to 48 hours after the procedure. Utilizing hyaluronic acid after the procedure can help further reduce inflammation, and sunscreen is recommended to protect the skin. If you choose to use makeup during the recovery period, it's advisable to limit it to mineral makeup for optimal skin care.
  • HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED FOR MICRONEEDLING?
    The number of treatments required depends on the specific skin condition. For moderate acne scars, three to four treatments may be needed, while thermal burns and stretch marks may require up to five treatments. For wrinkles caused by aging, one or two refresher treatments are recommended per year. Microneedling can be safely repeated every four to six weeks, as needed. Collagen induction typically requires a minimum of three treatments, while scar reduction may necessitate between three and six sessions. It's advisable to allow four to six weeks between each treatment to optimize the healing and rejuvenation process.
  • HOW LONG DOES MICRONEEDLING TAKE?
    The Microneedling treatment itself typically takes about 45 minutes. However, an additional 30 to 45 minutes is usually allocated beforehand for the application of numbing cream to ensure your comfort during the procedure. The combined time allows for a comprehensive and comfortable Microneedling experience.
  • WHAT KIND OF SKIN DOES MICRONEEDLING WORK ON?
    Medical microneedling is safe to use on all skin types and colors without the risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation. This makes it a versatile and inclusive option for individuals with various skin tones and types.
