While a professional skincare regime can help to maintain, preserve, and protect skin from factors that make us appear older, eventually topical treatments may not be enough to achieve our desired results.
Our ability to produce collagen naturally declines as we age causing a visible loss of elasticity and firmness.
Known in Europe as “collagen stimulation therapy,” microneedling causes an increased production in collagen and elastin tissue, resulting in smoother, tighter skin.
This treatment addresses issues such as skin texture, wrinkles, fine lines, scars, stretch marks, and rosacea.
Microneedling in Newport Beach at Pure Aesthetics + Wellness
Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a cosmetic procedure that has proven effective for a number of skin problems including scarring and acne. Safe and highly effective for all skin types, microneedling involves the repeated puncturing of skin with tiny, sterile needles to help trigger the natural production of collagen within the tissues.
Microneedling with PRP
At PURE, Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) can be combined with CIT to dramatically enhance results in several different areas of the body, including the face, neck, arms, décolleté, abdomen, back, hands and legs.
PRP is derived from a patient’s own blood plasma along with a multitude of growth factors that increase both collagen production and speed healing. It can be applied topically to the entire treatment area both during and after a CIT treatment and/or injected intradermally into scars.

Microneedling Results – What can I expect from my Microneedling treatment?
Microneedling is a safe and effective treatment with impressive results for many issues that affect various areas of the body, on all skin types, especially darker tones where laser treatment isn’t always an option.
Before a series of very small needles are injected into the treatment site, a numbing gel is applied to the skin. The depth of penetration depends on the area being addressed, as well as your skin type and condition. A sensation of light sandpaper may occur during the Microneedling. Depending on the surface area being treated, the treatment usually lasts about an hour.
What is a Microneedling Facial?
A Microneedling Facial is a procedure that uses modern science and the body’s ability to naturally heal itself to reduce the signs of aging.
