Microneedling and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) are safe, customized procedures that rejuvenate the skin to deliver youth-restoring results in a relaxed office environment.Schedule a Consultation
Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate the skin. A device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin. Results can include improved texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks. Microneedling may also be combined with a topical treatment, like PRP (platelet rich plasma) or another vitamin-rich serum.
This process is called Collagen Induction Therapy and is used to improve
- Texture and tone
- Surface scarring
- Fine wrinkles
What to Expect From the Procedure
Microneedling is based on the use of tiny needles to create tiny holes in the skin. The process stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal itself and in the process produces collagen and elastin. This repair process begins almost immediately and results in a thicker dermis and softened wrinkles or scars. We use the automated Rejuvapen™ for its predictable performance and safety profile.
There is no tissue destruction with microneedling. The small channels in the epidermis close very quickly and the skin begins a healing response right away. Depending on the depth of the skin defect, you may see only redness or you may experience some pinpoint bleeding which stops almost immediately.
Outstanding Product or PRP Absorption
These superficial micro-channels also allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin. Specific treatment products can be selected to achieve accelerated results. We’ll employ various topicals depending upon your needs
- Hyaluronic serums
- Stem cells to multiply new young cells
- Vitamin C for strengthening and antioxidant boost
- PRP with Microneedling to boost freshness, tone and texture.
Microneedling can safely be used on nearly all parts of the body with the most frequent treatments being on the:
After the Treatment
You’ll likely look as if you have a sunburn following treatment. This can last the rest of the day, to several days or a week depending on treatment depth. Treat your skin gently and refrain from acid-containing products for a week or longer. Most Rejuvapen™ patients are red for 24-hours or less. That advantage means you can get the procedure performed on a Friday and be back to normal for work on Monday.Schedule a Consultation
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
Today, we can offer a revolutionary new anti-wrinkle treatment using your own blood called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy. PRP involves the use of blood plasma, enriched through a special process to increase the concentration of platelets. These platelets contain bioactive proteins and growth factors that serve to accelerate tissue repair and regeneration, and activate stem cells. This non-surgical, age-defying wrinkle treatment injects PRP, derived from your own blood, to stimulate collagen production and cell migration, resulting in fresh, healthy, younger-looking skin.
Dr. Tseng has been offering PRP Therapy in the Seattle-Bellevue area for over a year once it received FDA clearance. Many of his patients who have chosen PRP Therapy are enjoying their natural results months later.
What to Expect From the Procedure
Dr. Tseng or his staff will draw your own blood to prepare a platelet rich fibrin injectable gel. PRP Therapy involves a three step process that is quick and easy. The whole treatment can take as little as 20 minutes, depending upon the area you want to have treated. The injections do not add volume but rather stimulate your own collagen production and cell migration to eliminate lines, folds and wrinkles. The improvement is subtle and natural. Results can last up to two years.
Advantages of PRP Therapy
- PRP Therapy uses your own natural resources so there is no risk of allergic reaction
- Collagen production is stimulated over 2-3 weeks to naturally reduce or eliminate lines, folds & wrinkles
- PRP Therapy is ideal for those who dislike synthetic products
- There is little to no swelling, bruising or lumping
- PRP Therapy can be used to treat any body area without side effects
- Both men and women benefit and experience a more youthful look
- Individually personalized treatment plan
Dr. Tseng personalizes each and every facial rejuvenation and body sculpting treatment, and each one can be done alone or in tandem with other non-surgical, age-defying procedures. Dr. Tseng is expertly trained and experienced in all injectable techniques, and he recommends them on an individual basis as part of a holistic approach to ageless health and beauty.Schedule a Consultation
