There are 3 different ways that microneedling can be done – traditional MN, MN with PRP, and RF (radio frequency) MN. Traditional MN boost collagen production by 300%. MN with PRP boost collagen production by 1000%. PRP is platelet rich plasma, in this treatment we draw your blood, spin it out so that the plasma is separated, we then MN the plasma back into the skin. Your plasma is your body’s own natural repair system full of nutrients. MN with radio frequency is the combination of microneedling with tightening benefit of RF.
