Micro-needling vs laser treatments

+1
Medical micro-needling, when properly done and combined with effective skin care products such as human growth-factor serums, can give as good or better results than fractionated laser treatments and at a fraction of the cost! Micro-needling works by stimulating the skin to trigger the release of growth factors to create more collagen and elastic fibers, resultibg in thicker, healthier looking skin. Lasers can only work by damaging the skin to cause the same effect.
In my office we use the ProCell Therapies system which combines motorized micro-needling with concentrated human growth factor serums made from human stem cells. Our patients also use growth factor serums at home after their office treatment.
