Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a procedure which punctures the skin (under controlled conditions) to trigger your skin's own immune response. Microneedling can provide faster results, and be more cost effective in comparison to laser therapy and chemical peels. Microneedlig can also treat a much broader range of surfaces than laser or chemical peels.
The many thousands of micro-channels created by the needles cause your skin to begin its own natural healing process. This includes your skin producing two types of collagen, which can give results that include:
Plumping of lines & wrinkles
Evens out skin tone & texture
Can treat hyperpigmentation
Strengthens weak capillaries
Treats acne scarring
Firms and tightens
Gives skin a luminous glow
WE PROVIDE TWO TYPES OF MICRONEEDLING SERVICES
Deep Medical Microneedling: Exclusively performed by a Licensed Medical Practitioner (MD, PA, ARNP)
SkinPen by Crown Aesthetics is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device on the market and is the only FDA-cleared device to treat both acne scarring and neck wrinkles! It is clinically proven to improve the appearance of wrinkles of the neck and acne scars in patients ages 22 and older. In as few as three minimally invasive treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance and step out with confidence.
There are three phases to the wound-repair process:
Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to cleanse the wound, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
Phase III: Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
Best of all, SkinPen works. Ninety percent of subjects in the clinical trial would recommend the procedure to family and friends.

MICRONEEDLING FOR MICROEXFOLIATION
The bt-titan®MN allows for a highly controlled and precise treatment that is adapted to your exact skin needs and comfort. Unlike more invasive procedures, this quick treatment not only delivers marked results but is suitable for all skin tones. With minimum downtime (12-24 hours), bt-titan MN treatments are a great option for those with a busy lifestyle and schedule.
We use only the finest, scientifically-proven products while performing your microneedling session.
Cleansing: We use a professional and medical grade Obagi cleanser to prepare the skin for the treatment.
Active Treatment: We use a professional and medical grade collagen and elastin serum, boosted with hyaluronic acid. This multitasking powerhouse serum is a clinical favorite worldwide for all skin conditions.
Serum: Our next generation serum helps boost skin energy while creating an invisible shield against environmental assault, helping to restore firmness, luminosity and tone by optimizing skin performance.
Mask: Our reparative, anatomically optimized sheet masque is fortified with collagen, elastin and phytosterols to help increase moisture and restore tone, while helping to diminish the appearance of fine lines and the signs of premature aging.
This treatment is very comfortable and virtually painless. Post-treatment, your skin will be pink in color and will feel tight, almost like mild sunburn. You may experience mild swelling, redness, dryness, and flaking, but any after-effects will resolve quickly! By the next day, you may wear makeup. Pre and post care education will be provided to you by your aesthetic provider to make sure you get optimum results. Results will be seen after 1 treatment, however, courses of 4 to 6 are advisable for some skin conditions.
MICRONEEDLING WITH PRF and/or PRP Injections
We also offer micro needling with PRP injections (platelet-rich fibrins), also known as the “vampire facial.”
How the PRP Facial & PRF Injections Work
A tube of blood is drawn from your arm, and immediately spun down in a centrifuge to isolate the plasma, which contains growth factors, platelets, and proteins. This nutrient-rich plasma is spread over the skin or injected, and then using our SkinPen device, we deliver thousands of controlled micro-punctures to the outermost layer of skin. The SkinPen stimulates your body’s natural healing process, breaking down damaged tissue and producing healthy new cells. By combining microneedling with your body’s own plasma, the growth factors penetrate more deeply, attracting stem cells to heal treated areas and triggering optimal collagen and elastin production.
We also provide platelet rich fibrin injections. Why do we offer PRF AND PRP? PRF injections have long term benefits and can continue to improve the skin after your treatment with the use of natural growth factors found in the PRF. These injections can be used under the eyes, on any post microneedling surface, or even in the scalp to optomize hair growth!
PRF or PRP can be added on to any of your microneedling procedures!
