Facial Rejuvenation Treatments
Our dermatology office features a variety of advanced skin rejuvenation treatments to brighten, smooth and nourish the skin including:
- Microneedling with growth factor using the Collagen PIN system
- Hydrafacial with CTGF
Microneedling with growth factors aka “Vampire” facial
The ultimate skin rejuvenation procedure is achieved by combining the Collagen PIN treatment with the extraordinary benefits of growth factors. During the procedure, a thin layer of growth factor is applied to the skin while the micropen’s tiny needles stimulate new collagen growth and push the growth factor into deeper layers of the skin. The skin’s repair process along with the powerful rejuvenating properties of growth factor result in a stronger dermis with softer wrinkles and improved skin texture.
- Improvement of deep and fine lines/wrinkles
- Brighter skin tone
Smaller appearing pores
- Softer skin texture
- Firmer appearing skin
- Softening of acne scars
How it works
A medical grade device called a micropen uses 12 small needles along with vibration to create painless micro-injuries and channels over the entire skin surface of the face and neck. This process stimulates the body’s innate healing response deep within the dermal layer of your skin and also allows the growth factor applied during treatment to penetrate deeper into the skin. This healing response signals specific cells and compounds to create new collagen and elastin which is what keeps the skin looking smooth and toned. This concept is important because as we age, new collagen is made only when signaled to do so. With the introduction of growth factor, this new collagen stimulation is significantly amplified for the most skin rejuvenation benefits.
Growth factor, is blood plasma with concentrated platelets and other growth factors that are gathered from your own blood sample. The essence of your blood contains life-giving fundamental proteins and growth factors that are designed to restore and strengthen your body. The use of growth factors has long been used in a variety of aesthetic, surgical and wound care fields of medicine around the world. This revolutionary natural serum offers incredible skin rejuvenation by stimulating and rebuilding the underlying structural integrity of your skin with your own nutrient-rich cells. When introduced into deeper layers of the skin, growth factors signal the cellular process for new tissue and collagen growth resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance. Growth factor is excellent for improving skin texture, deep wrinkles, scars, and improving post procedure healing time.

WHAT RESULTS MAY BE EXPECTED? HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED TO SEE RESULTS? HOW LONG THE RESULTS LASTS?
Many clients report seeing visible skin refinement and an even, radiant skin tone after just one treatment. The smooth results and hydration may last 5 to 7 days or even longer. We don’t believe in quick fixes, so one treatment per month is recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, oily and congested skin. Continued HydraFacial treatments are highly recommended to maintain skin health results.
