Microneedling with PRP
Collagen Induction Therapy
Dr. Hamori is pleased to offer three microneedling options in the Skin Spa:
Microneedling is a non-invasive treatment for rejuvenating the skin of the face, neck and body. Microneedling involves a treatment device with fine needles that create tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin. Results include:
- improved skin tone and texture
- reduced fine lines and wrinkles
- tighter skin
- reduction of scars and pore size
- reduction of stretch marks and spider veins.
Any of our microneedling treatments can be enhanced with platelet rich plasma, commonly called PRP. See more below.
VirtueRF is the first microneedling platform that adds radio frequency technology for precise skin rejuvenation with no social downtime. VirtueRF, which replaces Vivace in our microneedling lineup, is the most powerful device for contouring and tightening the face, neck and body, by stimulating the production of collagen, and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Advantages of the VirtueRF technology include:
- No downtime
- Virtually painless
- Can be combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for added results.
A unique component of the Virtue RF experience is its exclusive post-treatment Microcurrent Dual Face Mask to eliminate redness and optimize the post-RF microneedling healing. A wet mask immediately soothes the skin with:
- Sodium Hyaluronate
- Aloe Vera Extract
A dry mask, using patented Tissue X™ microcurrent technology delivers these skin soothing ingredients deeper into the skin without the use of separate devices, electricity or metals.
Each treatment takes approximately 20 minutes, and you may require 3 to 4 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. Your treatment regiment will vary depending on your needs. Your provider may recommend no make-up for 24 hours and of course, its always important to use sun protection.
With four fractional tips to provide a variety of treatment depths, Morpheus 8 is the most aggressive offering combining fractionated RF energy — to reduce wrinkles and rebuild collagen and fat — with a matrix of microneedling pins to renew deeper layers of the skin and full body remodeling. By stimulating collagen by penetrating deep into the layers of the dermis, Morpheus 8 can improve skin complexion and texture reducing crepiness, cellulite and wrinkles and providing a slight lift . It can also treat acne.
Results are visible within a few days, but are most noticeable after about three weeks. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment. Morpheus can be used on any area that can benefit from sub-dermal renewal, such as face, neck and other body parts. And it works with all skin types including darker skin tones. Most patients require between one to three sessions. Plan on a couple days of downtime — sunblock and makeup cannot be applied for two days after treatment.

The Rejuvapen® uses a cartridge of nine precisely aligned microneedles to create invisible, verticle microperforations into the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis. This triggers the skin’s natural repair mechanism to produce collagen and elastin to repair these perforations. Your Rejuvapen microneedling treatment takes advantage of this self-repairing property of your skin from the inside out in addition to the absorbtion of active ingredients of RP Complex™ as the skin closes.
Rejuvapen can also be used with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) (see more below).
Rejuvapen microneedling benefits:
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Lifts, tightens, rejuvenates skin
- Minimizes pore size
- Improves appearance of stretch marks
- Improves appearance of scars
- Improves acne
A full-face treatment takes one hour; four treatments spaced one month apart are recommended. Results last about a year.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is easily extracted from your blood and processed on-site to concentrate several growth factors and cytokines. PRP is commonly used to treat sports related injuries because of its remarkable healing properties. Applying a patient’s own PRP during a Microneedling treatment provides an accelerant to the skin’s healing process.
Post treatment, expect three to five days of downtime due to skin redness, swelling, tightness and flaking, which is normal. A daily physical sunscreen is recommended as well as use of a gentle cleanser and frequent use of hydrating products such as RP Copper Complex Cream (all included in a post treatment kit as part of your 3- or 4-treatment package).
You can return to your normal skin care routine after two or three days (or when you are comfortable). Vitamin A products are optimal and suggested.
Avoid direct sun for 10 days if possible.
